Neck Pain Case Study

A 42 year old male presented to clinic suffering from a two day onset of right sided neck pain.

A 42 year old male presented to clinic suffering from a two day onset of right sided neck pain. Upon questioning, the pain occurred first thing upon waking in the morning and felt it was likely caused from the way he slept. He describes a sharp pinching pain in the neck with certain neck movements and has had to take two days off work as a result. Attempts with massage, heat application and pain medication provided only temporary relief. This is his first time trying Chiropractic after hearing positive results from his colleagues at work who suffered from a similar complaint.
