To effectively treat neck pain, we have to look deeper than just the pain. Pain is generally the “check engine light”. It tells us there is an underlying issue.

If you could benefit from something else, we’ll get you to the person who can help. We won’t waste your time or your money.
By far, the most common cause of neck pain is due to the effects of poor posture. We find that our lifestyles are becoming increasingly more sedentary, with more and more hours spent at a desk in front of a computer, on our phones, or slouched on a couch watching TV. In order to understand the link between neck pain and poor posture, we need to understand why spinal alignment is so important. Our neck specialist in Melbourne will happily explain to you how these things work in your consultation.
Our spine is very well designed and has 3 curves that work together to create shock absorbance, and more importantly, structural integrity to support our head and limbs. Our neck is made up of 7 vertebras which are aligned in a specific way to help balance and support your head, which weighs roughly 5kg. It is vital for our necks to have a proper curve.
If we lose the curvature in our neck, our heads sit more forward in relation to our shoulders and increase the strain to the joints and ligaments of our neck. Studies have shown that for every 5cms our head is more forward, it effectively doubles the weight of our head and strain on the neck! This is the kind of information a neck specialist in Melbourne can share with you to help alleviate your neck pain.
The New Zealand Government’s Inquiry found that chiropractic care is “remarkably safe” (1). Chiropractic enjoys an outstanding safety record. This is due to the fact that the approach does not use drugs or invasive methods such as surgery.
In relation to the treatment of neck and back pain, studies have shown that a course of chiropractic care was 250 times safer than a course of anti-inflammatory drugs (2). So rest assured, you are in safe hands.

Yes it can! A muscular problem is often caused by nerve irritation at the spine. The muscles can spasm and tighten where they connect to the nerves. As the most common cause of neck pain is due to poor curvature of the neck, muscle pain is a result of the strain to the nerves. After a chiropractic adjustment, the nerves usually go back to functioning well, and the muscles relax. Soft tissue techniques can go further to address muscle pain. In addition, we have a referral network we can draw upon if you need further help. If you’re looking for a neck specialist in Melbourne, a reputable chiropractor is a good place to begin.
Chiropractic adjustments are performed by chiropractors who are expertly trained in assessing and treating the spine. Chiropractors study for 5 years and have extensive experience on how best to treat the spine, meaning you’ll be in the best hands possible to be treating your spine and neck.
Your neck specialist in Melbourne will conduct an examination and formulate a plan of treatment that is best for you and your health. We will always explain to you what will be involved in your treatment before beginning. There are many ways we can treat your neck, so if you prefer a manual adjustment or a low force adjustment using an activator, our first priority is your comfort and requests. Adjustments are a high velocity, low amplitude force that is specifically applied to the spine. Adjustments tend to surprise rather than hurt patients.
Chiropractic has a very good safety record. As mentioned above, a Governmental Inquiry in New Zealand deemed chiropractic as remarkably safe. It’s noted as being 250 times safer than a course of anti-inflammatory drugs. So if you want a neck pain treatment in Melbourne that is very safe and effective, book in at My Health Chiro.
