Neck pain can be due to a variety of conditions. Some common causes of neck pain include arthritis, disc degeneration, muscle inflammation, trigger points, muscle sprains, and ligament strains. To determine what is causing your neck pain, we recommend a thorough examination by one of our doctors.
Chiropractic adjustments increase the joint range of motion in the neck, where tightness and stiffness are palpated upon a chiropractic examination. In some cases, chiropractic adjustments to the thoracic (or mid-back) region are utilized to relieve tension around the neck and upper back, an area where stress often accumulates. Our office utilizes multiple adjusting techniques for added comfort.
Manual therapy is also an excellent treatment option for neck pain, especially when trigger points are present. Manual therapy helps to relieve trigger points by using various treatment techniques to induce muscle relaxation and pain relief.
Dry needling is often a painless and effective procedure for neck pain. This treatment technique uses very fine filiform needles to penetrate the skin, resulting in muscle relaxation, increased microcirculation, and nervous system regulation. Check your chiropractor's licensing and certifications to ensure the highest quality outcomes.
We often provide tips for posture correction when necessary. Strengthening of the proper muscles is also essential to stabilize the head and neck musculature to prevent trigger points, pain, and dysfunction from occurring in the future.
