Neck Pain

Do you suffer from neck pain, always rubbing it, stretching it this way or that way, or using medications to make it feel better? We can help.

Neck pain is the second most common complaint we treat at Flamborough Health Clinic. In fact, an estimated 70% of people will experience neck pain at some point in their life.

Common types of neck pain that we treat include:

  • Disc herniations/bulges
  • Pinched nerves
  • Cervical radiculopathy
  • Facet syndrome
  • Disc degeneration
  • Stenosis
  • Muscle pain/strains
  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis)

Understanding Pain Triggers

At Flamborough Health Clinic, we’ll show you what your pain trigger is and how to avoid aggravating your neck during your daily activities. For example, if you continuously hit your thumb with a hammer, it will never start feeling better. Similarly, if you maintain behaviours that irritate your neck, your neck never has a chance to start feeling better.

We’ll educate you using spinesparing training (see Techniques) and show you how to perform your daily activities to best avoid your pain trigger.

Neck Pain Treatments

At Flamborough Health Clinic, we’ll provide treatments that will decrease your pain and also show you what you can do yourself to relieve pain. We most commonly use PulStar MIT for passive treatments, along with other techniques. For active treatments, we will show you postures or movements that you can use during your day to relieve your pain.

“Rebuilding” Your Neck

When you injure your neck, it leads to changes in communication between your body and your brain and how your neck muscles are coordinated. To successfully alleviate pain and reduce the risk of reoccurrence, those changes need to be minimized or reversed.

We use PulStar MIT to improve the communication between your body and your brain and improve your neck muscle coordination. Exercise therapy can improve the communication between your body and your brain, as well. It can also improve your muscle coordination and help to keep your neck healthy and strong.

A neck pain sufferer himself, Dr. Wilbrink has first-hand experience in how it affects your life and how it can be successfully managed.
