Head and Neck Pain in Ottawa
Poor posture, overuse, auto accidents and sports injury are common causes that can affect regions near the neck, including the head, jaw, shoulder and upper arms. The term “stiff” neck is often used to describe the pain that occurs when moving your neck, especially from side to side.
Did you know chiropractors can treat severe head and neck pain and injuries? Injuries such as jaw locking or pain in the jaw while eating, migraine or stress-related headaches, locked-up neck, text neck syndrome, neck disc herniation and arthritis can be successfully managed and healed through chiropractic care.

We are one of the few clinics in Ottawa who do Shockwave Therapy which is a therapeutic device designed to increase the growth of new blood vessels, break down scar tissue and calcification. The added circulation will promote tissue healing in the injured site. Shockwave Therapy sends high-pressure sound waves into the tissues in pulses. Conditions such as calcification of Achilles tendon, rotator cuff injuries, Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and chronic myofascial pain syndrome can be successfully treated via Shockwave Therapy. Only chiropractors at Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic can perform this treatment. Shockwave Therapy may be claimed under your chiropractic insurance.
We’re always very excited to bring new advanced medical technology to our clinic. We will announce the arrival of “Spinal Decompression” through Facebook, website and email when it is finally installed within our facility. A lot of family doctors choose specific clinics to refer their patients for Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression. It is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain, neck pain, sciatica, spinal stenosis and cervical radiculopathy. Spinal decompression works by stretching the spine. Subsequently, this modifies the force and position of the spine, taking pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. In turn, this retraction helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
The model of decompression bed we are using is Triton DTS®. Visit their company’s website to learn more about it.
The more acute the injury is, the more frequent you may need Chiropractic sessions. That’s because we want to stimulate healing as soon as possible before the body starts to adapt to the injury erroneously and lead to more problems. If you are coming to the clinic for preventative care, a one-a-month treatment at your chiropractor’s office should be sufficient.
