Effective treatment of neck pain
Neck pain can affect your daily work, your leisure time or overall quality of life. Pressing on the sore muscles may help in the short term, but it is rarely a long-term solution.
The causes of neck pain can be many and come from different places in the body. We have helped many before you and can also find YOUR cause of neck pain.

The structure of the neck
The neck consists of 7 cervical vertebrae with associated discs in between each vertebra. There are many small muscles and ligaments in the neck that move the head with great precision and give the brain feedback on the position of the head. In the area there are also many nerve pathways that supply the head and upper body with signals, as well as receive signals from the same area. Therefore, pain in the neck, shoulder and arms can easily occur if the muscles are tense and press on the nerves.
Neck pain or pain in the neck can come from an acute hold in the neck, muscular imbalance in the neck region, an injury such as a whiplash / whiplash or from pinching of nerves in the neck area. The muscles typically tense up and specific or more diffuse pain can be experienced, sometimes up in the head, down between the shoulder blades or out into the arms.
We treat all problems related to the neck.
A crick in the neck can come suddenly due to a specific movement or without immediate cause. This is typically due to a lock in the small joints between the vertebrae. The treatment is without manipulations, cracks or twists and you can typically notice improvement soon after.
Migraines can occur from many different causes and it is complex to treat it - but not impossible. Many people experience various triggers for a migraine, but the cause is in the nervous system, which is overstimulated and the brain responds with migraines.
A concussion can be a violent experience and many people experience different symptoms. For some, it may be becoming sensitive to light and sound. Others become dizzy or have reduced mobility in the neck so as not to overload the nervous system.
Here is an example from the clinic: A client experienced immediate improvement in the mobility of the neck after treating a single imbalance in the nervous system after a concussion a few years earlier.
A whiplash occurs when head accelerates rapidly back and forth typically in connection with a collision with a car. In connection with whiplash, there may be headaches, light and sound sensitivity, pain in the shoulder and neck region. A neck that has experienced whiplash will be extra sensitive to violent movement, which is why the gentle treatment with P-DTR is an effective form of treatment.
In the small joints between the vertebrae, the cartilage in the joint can be worn so that the bones move toward each other. This typically causes pain and the recommendation is to strengthen the muscles around. Our experience is that the joints typically wear unevenly on one side compared to the other, due to a muscular imbalance around the joint. This imbalance and the unbalanced load on the joint will persist until the cause is found. I do this with the help of muscle testing and gentle treatment of the findings.
In between each vertebra there is a disc, which consists of a soft core surrounded by a hard shell. A protrusion is a bulge on the hard shell and a herniated disc is when the hard shell breaks and the soft core comes out into the spinal canal. Both a protusion and a herniation can easily affect the nerves as space is minimal.
Seek medical advice
If you experience heaviness or radiating pain in the arm / arms or have difficulty holding urine or faeces, seek medical attention.
