Your neck houses part of the spinal cord in addition to muscle tissue that helps it move. Sometimes, accidents, injuries or repeated stress lead to neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain is usually from stress, especially caused by poor posture. This particular issue can lead to migraines in addition to general neck pain. It's also possible an automobile, sports or personal injury will lead to neck pain. In fact, these issues can lead to whiplash, a condition caused by the neck propelling forward and then backward rapidly. The force of the impact can damage the nerves and soft tissue in the neck. People who have whiplash may experience neck pain, a loss in the range of motion in the neck, fatigue, headaches, difficulty sleeping or trouble concentrating, just to name a few issues. Other potential causes of neck pain include degeneration, nerve compression or arthritis. Our chiropractors will take a thorough evaluation of your medical history and will conduct a physical examination and possibly other testing to determine the root of the problem in order to treat it effectively.
Treatment for Neck Pain
A spinal alignment from a chiropractor realigns the vertebrae in your neck, which reduces pressure on the soft tissue and nerves surrounding your neck. The treatment promotes the flow of blood to the area, which means you receive more nutrients to the region to speed up the healing process.
Our chiropractor may recommend you participate in exercise therapy. This treatment consists of the chiropractor walking you through various neck exercises that reduce your pain and inflammation, increase your flexion, and even speed up your recovery time. It's possible our chiropractors will recommend massage therapy. The treatment consists of using stimulation to loosen tight muscles. It reduces your pain for this reason as well as because the treatment reduces inflammation. By stimulating the muscles, more nutrient-rich blood reaches the area in order to promote healing.
Chiropractic care has the potential to detect poor posture and provide you with lifestyle advice to combat the problem. For instance, our chiropractors may perform an ergonomic assessment and make recommendations on how to set up your workstation to minimize the risk of neck pain or injury and maximize your comfort.
