Emergency Care

To help reduce any inflammation and pain it can help to apply ice packs or a frozen bag of vegetables to the affected area for 10 minutes on and off, but make sure the pack is covered either by a damp cloth or a towel. Gentle exercise and stretching, such as walking or doing everyday tasks, will help your recovery. Don't take to your bed and lie still as this can further aggravate the condition and may slow recovery.

You can take painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen (check with your pharmacy), if you feel the need to. Hot compression packs may also help reduce the pain

Emergency appointments are available.

I had suffered from neck and shoulder discomfort for nine months as a result of a whiplash injury and although I had other manipulative treatment which helped in the short term, it didn't get to the root of the problem. After one treatment the effects were apparent: I used to dread a night's sleep because my neck would be so painful in the morning. After two treatments the pain was gone and I felt like a new woman.
