What Causes Neck Pain?

The neck is an extension of the spine. The vertebrae of the neck are under a tremendous amount of pressure each day, holding up your head and moving your head in all the directions you need. Pain can originate in the vertebrae of the cervical spine. This can happen because of an injury or because the discs between the vertebrae are damaged or inflamed. 

Another factor in neck pain can often be the muscles and ligaments that connect with the cervical spine. Your shoulders and back muscles all interact with the cervical spine all day. If these muscles are experiencing pain or tightness, it can cause pain in the neck as well.  Other conditions such as a pinched nerve or sciatica can also contribute to neck pain. 

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Our chiropractors can help you get the relief you need. Chiropractic care focuses on treating the root cause of pain rather than masking it with prescription medication. Chiropractors will use diagnostics to pinpoint exactly what is causing your pain. After this, a treatment plan will be developed for you. Regular cervical manipulations will relieve your neck pain, restore your range of motion in your head and neck, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care sessions will relieve your neck pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Types of Treatment Used

Many different types of treatment can be useful for neck pain. Cervical manipulation is one of the most common types of treatment used in our office. This procedure will realign the vertebrae of the neck so that the spine can function properly. Massage therapy is also very useful to release pent-up tension in the muscles of the back and neck.  You can talk with our doctor about other treatment options that may work for you as well.
