If neck pain is keeping you up at night, consider chiropractic care for neck pain relief. At Spine One Chiropractic Center, we have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Egg Harbor, Northfield, Atlantic City, and Cherry Hill for many years. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding neck pain and its treatment.
Why Do I Have Neck Pain?
There are numerous reasons people suffer from neck pain. Poor posture, sleeping on too many pillows, and bending over your cellphone or tablet for long periods will strain muscles in your neck, causing pain and immobility. If you were in a rear-end collision, you may have whiplash, a neck injury caused by your head being thrust forward and back uncontrollably. This strains muscles and tissues in your neck, causing pain that can become chronic if left untreated.
Why Should I See a Chiropractor for Neck Pain?
Neck pain is often due to injury of your muscles, tissues, or joints or an imbalance in your spinal system. Our chiropractor specializes in these types of afflictions. Chiropractic treatments are safe, non-invasive, and drug-free. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your neck pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
How Does Chiropractic Care Treat Neck Pain?
Chiropractic care is a holistic means of treating neck pain. No drugs or surgery are involved in chiropractic treatments. After evaluating your condition, our chiropractor will outline a treatment plan suited to your healthcare needs. This plan may consist of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massage, hot and cold treatments, and corrective exercises to relieve pain and restore neck flexibility.
Adjustments help realign vertebrae or joints in your spine to relieve pressure on your muscles and joints. Restoring balance to your spinal system will promote natural healing. Massage is used to circulate blood to neck injuries for quicker healing. It also relaxes muscle tension in your neck to relieve stiffness and restore mobility. Stretches and corrective exercises will restore neck flexibility and mobility.
