Neck Pain, Whiplash and Headaches
Neck Pain is a very common problem. At Dapto Osteo, treatment for neck pain involves a detailed assessment to determine the source of the pain, mechanism of injury and contributing factors that have lead up to the development of the pain. Osteo, chiro, massage, exercise and dry needling can all be very helpful for treatment and long-term management of neck pain. We have hands-on treatment options and exercise-based treatment options that not can not only help eradicate the neck pain, but help you prevent it from happening again.
Whiplash is a soft-tissue injury that commonly occurs in the neck following a fall or motor vehicle accident. This can lead to tension, reduced neck range of movement, pain, headaches and in more severe cases, neurological symptoms or fracture. Our team are trained to assess and grade Whiplash Associated Disorders and manage the injury accordingly. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered an injury associated with the accident, you can receive medical treatment for that injury paid for by the insurance company of the at fault driver (even if you were at fault). At Dapto Osteo, we are very well equipped and experienced in managing these problems, as we offer hands-on and exercise-based treatment options. All billing is done directly to the insurance company (conditions apply).
Headaches are very common and can be caused by different factors. At Dapto Osteo, we identify the type of headache you are experiencing and treat them accordingly. Tension headaches, cervicogenic headaches (coming from the neck), TMJ (jaw) dysfunction and Migraines are the most common forms of headaches. Hands-on treatment is very effective at helping with all of these conditions. We always aim to address all the contributing factors as much as possible to enable long-term relief from headaches.
