The neck is designed to move, allowing people to enjoy the world around them. However this mobility comes at the sacrifice of stability, making the neck more vulnerable to injury and conditions causing pain and discomfort.
Causes of neck pain can vary and our thorough chiropractic physical assessment aims to provide insight into the specific cause of your pain.
If you look at the human skeleton you’ll notice that all of the weight of the upper body rests on just two sacroiliac joints, which then transfers this weight through the pelvic bones into the two hip joints.
With all of this force, sometimes the smallest issue can cause a great deal of pain.
Poor posture could be a result of an underlying structural issue or due to repetitive lifestyle habits.
At Karori Chiropractic we use postural analysis techniques and patient history to help understand how your body is positioned and give stretching and exercise advice personalised to each individual’s specific anomalies.
Chiropractic can help relieve muscle tension and is often used by professional athletes when they’re seeking a competitive edge. New research suggests there are also a variety of other benefits to chiropractic care.
