Unfortunately, neck pain and tightness is becoming more prevalent as we become less active and rely more on technology.
Aside from the usual neck injuries and poor posture, stress is playing a bigger role in ongoing neck pain and dysfunction.
When we get stressed, the 'fight or flight' system is activated in our bodies, sending messages to our muscles to contract. This muscle tension becomes chronic and the tightness reduces our flexibility, leading to neck pain, stiffness and sometimes headaches.
Our downtown Ottawa Integrative clinic focusses on the following treatments with an emphasis on one-on-one personalized hands-on care. Our goal is to:
restore proper function to the muscles and joints around the neck and upper back
In addition to effective hands on manual therapy, we utilize specific neck strengthening exercises to help get your neck to the point where you can self-manage in the long run. Our goal is to increase neck region resilience so that eventually you won’t need us!
