It may arise from a stiff neck or even a whiplash injury. Neck pain that originates in the joints of the neck can often worsen when there is swelling which affects the surrounding nerves.
Whiplash is a hyper-extension and flexion injury to the neck caused by an acceleration deceleration force and is commonly associated with head to rear car accidents. A whiplash injury can also be sustained in many other ways such as from sports or a fall. If you are suffering from a whiplash injury, you will often have pain and symptoms in your neck, shoulders and upper back.
At Kissun Chiropractic, we find that having your neck and upper back assessed immediately after an injury such as whiplash helps in the early identification and management of the injury sustained before the symptoms escalate.
I had neck problems that were progressively getting worse and more frequent. After the planned and scheduled care by the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic the pain has greatly subsided and I hardly feel the discomfort now. The Doctor is very caring, warm and professional.
Prior to seeing the Doctor I constantly fed on painkillers to ease my headaches and muscle relaxants to ease the aches and pain on my shoulders due to a car accident. I was recommended by a friend to see a Chiropractor and I was on the road to recovery. The initial diagnosis was that I had a reversal of curvature in my neck. I would highly recommend and have recommended Kissun Chiropractic, especially due to the effectiveness of treatments without medication. Whilst many are skeptical, I am the best evidence on effectiveness of chiropractic treatments.
The Doctor has helped me tremendously. Not only has he relieved the pain and stiffness in my neck, shoulders and back, he has taught me how to take better care of myself. I used to wake up every morning with a bad stiff neck and experienced stiffness in my shoulders every day after work. I now experience pain free days and have gained greater freedom of movement around my neck. The Doctors at Kissun Chiropractic take their time to explain what is wrong with my neck/back and what to lookout for.
Due to a whiplash injury I had deep burning pain at the base of my neck and shoulder areas. I also had numbness in my left arm. Besides that I had compulsive need/urge to ‘cradle’ my neck to ease my aches and tensions in my neck area. The Doctor helped ease and remove all these pains and problems with regular adjustments. I never feel rushed during treatments/adjustments. The Doctor gives his time and attention to all my health concerns and complaints. I like the layout of the clinic as it ensures my privacy during adjustments.
I would highly recommend Kissun Chiropractic to friends and relatives as the Doctor is really honest and trustworthy. They will never sell big and expensive packages to patients. Instead they will advise patients to buy a package most suited to their needs.
The Doctor released me from severe neck pain. After 6 sessions of physiotherapy, it had no effect. I was skeptical to the treatment with a Chiropractor, but the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic explained it in a way that made it sound logical. The treatments were at times painful, but my Doctor talks me through what he is doing. The treatment has helped and more, the Doctor found the reason for my neck pain and is healing the whole problem.
I will forever give the Doctors at Kissun Chiropractic the credit for the fact that I will continue with chiropractic treatment in Norway and tell my friends to do so as well.
