Causes and Treatment of Neck Pain


Neck pain is a common condition, with everyday lifestyle factors often being the cause of the pain.

Mechanical neck pain is usually caused by joint and muscle problems and can be treated in dedicated outpatient settings like Homewood Chiropractic clinic in Fareham.

Whatever the level of your pain, it’s important to see a specialist to relieve you of that pain and to prevent further and future damage.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

There is always a reason for your pain and finding its cause is the key to treating it and making it better. Causes of neck pain range from minor cricks to more serious underlying issues with the pain often also affecting the shoulders, arms, and chest, or causing headaches.

Chiropractors train for a minimum of four years in full-time education to be able to diagnose, manage, and treat the pain and debilitation caused by problems with the musculoskeletal system. A range of professional treatments and techniques can be used to treat the joints and tissues in the neck to relieve pain in all age groups.

Common Causes of Neck Pain include:


  • Osteoarthritis
  • Inflammatory arthritic conditions
  • Pulled muscles, strains, or other injuries
  • Facet joint disorders and degenerative discs
  • Obesity
  • Trapped nerves
  • Inherited disorders
  • Trauma
  • Fracture
  • Osteoporosis and osteopenia
  • Poor posture
  • The wrong exercise programmes
  • Sports injury
  • Poor working environment
  • Excessive driving
  • Occupational injuries
  • Sleeping awkwardly or in the wrong position
  • Sleeping on the wrong mattress or pillow
  • Stress and distress.


A very small proportion of neck pain may be due to an underlying health condition such as a broken bone, cancer, or an infection.

Not all of these conditions can be treated by a Chiropractor, but we are trained to diagnose and refer patients with non-mechanical neck pain to an appropriate medical specialty.

If your pain isn’t going away, is getting worse, stopping you from enjoying your life, and preventing you from sleeping, do not hesitate in seeing a neck pain specialist to help diagnose and treat your pain.

Treatment of Neck Pain


The majority of neck pain is treated in non-hospital settings: outpatient clinics or in local and often private clinical settings.

Chiropractic techniques for neck pain include manipulation, mobilisation, electrotherapy, acupuncture, massage, exercise, and lifestyle advice.

Medical treatment may include injections to nerves or joints, disc resection, fusion of joints or joint replacements, and treatments for uncommon pathologies like cancer and spinal tuberculosis.

This place, in my opinion is by far the only place you should go for your chiropractic needs The place itself is so calming, the staff couldn't be more kind and the service isn't like anything I've ever had 11/10

What  Happens When You First Visit Homewood Chiropractic


treatment room

The first step in treating your pain effectively is to have a diagnosis. During your initial visit, we will perform a thorough examination to determine how best to care for you: this will include a spinal examination; nerve, joint, and muscle tests; postural analysis; and careful scrutiny of your medical, lifestyle, and occupational history.

Our very experienced Chiropractors discuss their findings and diagnosis with you before carefully explaining how best to treat your problem.

This approach means your treatment can often start immediately. Occasionally we may suggest an XRAY, MRI or Diagnostic Ultrasound to clarify your condition. These tests are carried out in-house or at local facilities. You may also be referred immediately to your GP or a Medical Specialist in the appropriate specialism.

How Long Is A Course Of Chiropractic Treatment?


The length of the treatment depends on your diagnosis, condition, and how you respond to it.

However, you do not have to commit to months of care and the associated cost. With no minimum course of treatment, we strive to save both your neck and your money – most people can be assessed and treated within four to eight sessions. Complicated and long-standing cases can take longer to solve, but our average treatment time is 4.8 sessions per condition.

Our Second Opinion Service can be booked to discuss an ongoing condition that is not responding as you would like, and to look into alternative treatments and care.

We also offer a regular check-up and follow-up service at the same charge as other treatments. Many people value the reassurance of a check-up and treatment to help to keep themselves in tip-top condition and to help prevent flare-ups.
