Have you got a pain in the neck? The vast majority of patients that come to see us are coming in for one reason – chronic pain. Our local Gold Coast acupuncture clinic has keen interests in pain management.
Chronic pain is an increasingly common ailment or condition and most often patients are suffering from lower back pain, general joint or arthritis pain or neck pain. For those living with chronic pain, neck pain is the third most common cause, according to a survey conducted by the National Institute of Health Statistics.
There are many causes for neck pain, which include muscle strains, worn joints, nerve compression, injuries and not to mention stress. This could be due to over use or injury from work or sport. Stress can play a huge part in the progression of neck pain, it usually starts at the back of your head where the muscles become very tight and can also cause minor headaches or migraines.
Herbal remedies can also be used on their own or as a liquid rubbed into the skin to increase blood flow and produce a warm or cool feeling that soothes muscles and eases aches.
So, while having chronic neck pain can be…well, a pain in the neck, acupuncture can make a significant difference and Traditional Chinese medicine offers a wide range of treatments that can reduce inflammation and pain. Here at Haynes Acupuncture Gold Coast we can help develop a plan that is customized for you and eases that ache.
