Day to day desk life keeps the world going around, however, is it giving you neck pain, shoulder pain or headaches? Most likely the answer is Yes! Ouch! Help! At Bergamo Chiropractic and Nutrition Centre, we look after people from Boronia, Wantirna, Knox, Bayswater and surrounding suburbs with complaints like these.
We like to call this term desk neck because it is a combination of symptoms pertaining to sitting at a desk for prolonged periods of time. The reason these symptoms come about is because of a myriad of factors. These can be such things as prolonged periods of not moving, poor desk chairs leading to lack of support, forward head position and dysfunctional computer screen set up. The most common symptoms can be shoulder pain, neck pain, upper back pain, headaches, pins and needles and much more. Dr Heidi Haavik states that ‘the presence of pain itself has been shown to alter all sorts of aspects of how muscles are controlled by the brain, and therefore how they function’.
Dr Jessica Sexton will identify the cause of your problem, not just the symptoms. This means looking at your spinal function and how this translates into you experiencing the above symptoms.
Whether you are in crisis or looking to improve your overall health, we will be with you every step of the way! Call us to book an appointment and find out more.
