Experiencing neck pain and tightness is becoming more prevalent as we become less active and rely on technology.
Aside from injuries and poor posture, stress also plays a big role in ongoing neck issues.
When we get stressed, the 'fight or flight' system is activated in our bodies, sending messages to our muscles to contract. As this muscle tension becomes chronic, the tightness reduces our flexibility and produces pain.
Our treatment includes a 'hands-on' approach that:
improves flexibility and
restores proper function to the muscles and joints
In addition to effective hands on manual therapy, we utilize specific neck strengthening exercises to help get your neck to the point where you can manage it yourself in the long run.

Don't delay your treatment...
The occasional ache or pain may be nothing to worry about, but failing to pay attention to strong pain may end up causing you a lot of problems in the future. If neck pain is reducing your ability to take part in the activities your normally do, then it’s time to get it looked at. In general, chronic neck pain or clicking that is affecting your life is a sign that something is wrong.
A serious problem will not correct itself, and left untreated, can result in more pain and irreversible damage.
