At Active Health Clinics, we recognize the debilitating effects of chronic neck pain. Such pain can hinder one's daily activities and overall quality of life. Even though neck pain is commonly experienced by many, it's crucial not to disregard it, especially if it's severely impacting your well-being.
You might have tried multiple remedies like stretching, rest, or heat applications, but they didn’t bring lasting relief. Dismissing neck pain as just an age-related ailment or something that'll go away by itself is a common misconception. We recognize that chronic neck pain can be intricate and necessitates expert care.

What is Neck Pain?
The neck, or cervical spine, is a network of nerves, bones, joints, and muscles directed by the brain and spinal cord. It is designed for strength, stability, and nerve communication. However, because it's less protected than the rest of the spine, the neck can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion.
Our dedicated clinical team at Active Health Clinics is esteemed for its approach to determining the primary cause of your neck pain and addressing it effectively.
Whether your neck pain arises from an old injury, a recent accident, or wear-and-tear, it can lead to muscle strain, nerve compression, and other complications. Our primary approach involves accurately diagnosing the root cause of your neck pain by assessing the function and state of your cervical spine, and then mapping out a detailed plan for recovery.

Why Risk Neck Surgery?
Why opt for surgical intervention when potent non-surgical solutions exist? Neck surgeries can be expensive, with variable success rates and potentially extensive recovery times. Even if insurance covers some costs, post-operative care can be financially draining.
Thankfully, Active Health Clinics offers expertise in managing neck pain and related conditions, with a groundbreaking non-surgical neck pain relief program. This program aims to relieve your pain, restore spinal function, and enhance your life quality, bypassing the pitfalls and costs of surgical procedures.

- Injuries from incidents like whiplash.
- Medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or herniated discs.
- Repetitive strain or overexertion.
- Poor posture leading to spinal misalignment and pain.
- Lifestyle habits, like prolonged screen time, inadequate exercise, or sleeping in incorrect positions.
