The neck is a high mobile highly complex region of the body comprised of vertebra, vertebral discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments. It is highly specialised to allow the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. The high degree of mobility makes this region more susceptible to injury than many others. Approximately 15-25% of Australians will have an episode of neck pain each year. Factors that increase chances of injury include higher psychological stress, lack of daily mobility and exercises.

At Cleveland Chiropractic we take a functional approach to care because there can be many factors involved in treating low back pain. First, we need to establish what is causing your pain and dysfunction. Orthopaedic, neurological, and functional movement examinations are performed to establish an accurate diagnosis.
Once we have an idea of what is going wrong, we will discuss and explain these findings with you. We want to create a treatment plan to get you moving well again ASAP and an environment where we can work together for the best possible outcome. Each treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s individual needs and will include not only your care at Cleveland chiropractic, but home rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle modifications needed to get you back on track.
Getting out of pain is great. But how do we keep it away? The final step is building a strong and healthy body, lowering your injury risk and building confidence within our patients to get back to moving well and achieving their goals.
