When life is a pain in the neck

Jatinder Benepal, who is the founder of Isis Chiropractic in Milton Keynes, wants to find out the cause and help you with your neck pain…

At the Isis Chiropractic Clinic in Milton Keynes I treat many patients with neck pain caused by trauma such as whiplash or sports injuries and also a significant number of patients whose pain is either aggravated or even caused by their lifestyle.

Do you sleep on a pillow that doesn’t adequately support your head or sleep on your stomach for part of the night?

Do you drive to work in a car with a badly positioned headrest that makes your head jut forward?

On arrival at work, do you then sit on a chair without armrests at a workstation with poor ergonomics, or maybe spend hours hunched over your PC or laptop?

Add to this the stress and tension of daily life and it really isn’t surprising that many people suffer pain in their neck and shoulder region along with headaches.

Neck pain is often the result of abnormalities in the soft tissues or the joints of the spine. When neck pain is caused by muscle strain, you may experience aches and stiffness that spread to the upper arm and forearm.

Shooting pain that spreads down into the hand and fingers can be a symptom of a “pinched nerve” or nerve entrapment in the neck, which can also cause numbness and weakness in the hands or arms.

I treat the cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. I use a wide range of gentle, specific manipulation and adjustment techniques in order to mobilise the neck joints, stretch, relax and strengthen the neck muscles and remove spinal nerve irritation.

We have a wide range of modalities at our Clinic, such as ultrasound and laser therapy as well as brand new Shockwave Therapy, a clinically proven highly effective treatment for chronic soft tissue injuries and certain bone conditions.

Some of my patients enjoy almost immediate relief, whilst others notice a gradual easing of their symptoms over a period of a few weeks.

Why not give us a call at the Isis Clinic to discuss your problem or if you have any specific questions or would like advice on any symptoms directly then please email us at enquiries@isischiropractic. co.uk and we will get back to you.
