These regions consist of the Cervical Spine (head & neck) and the Thoracic Spine (shoulders down to your last rib)

The Cervical Spine has to carry the weight of the human head - between 8 and 15 lbs. Doing that day in and day out when you are awake and when you are asleep is enough to put stress on the sturdiest of necks. Added to the fact that its the most mobile part of the spine it is inevitable that from time to time problems will arise. Dysfunction in this area can lead to referred pain in the head and arms as the nerves that originate in the Cervical region feed those areas. Problems in this area may result in one or more of the following- all of which we can treat:

  • Cervicogenic headaches
  • TMJ disorders (Jaw)
  • Facial 'Bells' palsy

The Thoracic Spine is the upper and middle back. It is built for stability and has limited flexibility compared to the Cervical Spine. Problems in this area may result in one or more of the following- all of which we can treat:

  • Disc pathologies- degenerative/bulging/slipped/ruptured
  • Trapped nerves and referred pain
  • Nerve root pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Whiplash
  • Postural/ work related neck pain
  • Torticollis
  • Post operative spinal issues
  • Costochondritis ( Rib and breast bone pain)
