Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain

Neck pain is the most common type in our patients, with about 50% of the population experiencing it. The neck has seven vertebrae stacked on top of each other—the spine curves like the letter ‘C’ to the front and back. The natural curvature of the spine helps to absorb shocks from walking and running, but if this curve is too extreme or too little, it can cause problems in the neck.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

Torticollis – Torticollis is a condition affecting the neck muscles that causes the neck to sink.

Fibromyalgia – Fibromyalgia is an illness that manifests as generalized musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. The condition is also associated with sleep, fatigue as well as mood and memory issues.

Osteoporosis – Osteoporosis makes bones weak and brittle. So brittle that even minor stresses like coughing or bending over can result in fractures.

Rheumatoid Arthritis – It’s an inflammatory and autoimmune disease. It means that your immune system attacks healthy cells within your body and causes inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected regions of your body. RA typically targets joints – typically multiple joints at a time.

Tech Neck – Also known as Text Neck – the bent neck places an undue strain upon the muscles of the lower cervical spine, which can cause repetitive stress injuries.

Poor Posture – A poor posture can lead to neck pain due to pulling ligaments and muscles which support the neck, which can lead to injury in the future.

What is Better for Neck Pain – Massage or Chiropractic Care?

The difference between massage and a chiropractic neck adjustment is that massage focuses on relaxation. As a chiropractor, we offer both.

Do not wait until your neck pain becomes unbearable before you seek treatment. It is better to get a chiropractic neck adjustment when your pain is manageable to enjoy a higher quality of life.

We use our hands to apply pressure and manipulate the cervical spine to relieve tension in the muscles and joints of the spine to give long-lasting relief.

We are experts in diagnosing neck pain and treating it with various techniques such as adjustments, manipulations, and massage therapy. We can also provide exercises and advice on how to prevent future episodes.

Consultation for Chiropractic Neck Adjustments

In the initial examination, we will ask several questions to determine the root causes of your neck discomfort. You’ll answer questions regarding your symptoms, your history of pain, and the type of movements you’re unable to perform. Physical examinations will detect any tenderness or swelling in the neck or arms.

The first visit is crucial since it assists us in identifying the best treatment option. Reach out today to schedule your initial consultation.
