Before visiting us, learn more about the cause of neck pain and how chiropractic care can help below:
What Causes Neck Pain?
Your neck works hard to support your head, which automatically puts you at risk for neck pain. If you spend long hours working at a computer, your neck is bent in an odd position and puts strain on your neck muscles. If you already have herniated disks or bone spurs in the neck, these press on the nerves of the spine and cause additional pain. Along with that, if you’ve been in a car accident, you could have whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head jerks backward and then forward. This strains the soft tissues of the neck and causes damage and pain.
Can Chiropractic Care Help with Neck Pain?
Our chiropractor can provide treatment for any neck pain that you may have. The treatments we offer are a safe and non-invasive alternative to medication. Our chiropractor utilizes adjustments to correct misalignments, reduce inflammation, and improve joint function in the neck. We also use hands-on spinal manipulation to adjust the joints in the neck and spine. Another method we use is spinal manipulation, which involves placing force with a thrust on the vertebrae that are out of place to get them back into place. When the bones are properly alignment, they move freely and reduce pressure on nerve, which improves neck mobility, range of motion, and function.
