Neck Pain Treatment

Neck pain seems to be a common complaint that most individuals shrug off as a normal part of daily life. However, neck pain should not be ignored as it is typically the result of one or more issues that can be successfully treated with exceptional chiropractic care. If you suffer from neck pain, it’s time that you start feeling relief – the expert team of Family Chiropractic Care, led by Dr. Rick Still, can relieve your neck pain and address the root cause of your discomfort to improve your overall health.

Causes of Neck Pain

The neck is often a site of discomfort as spinal and postural problems cause the neck to contort as it is one of the ways in which the body attempts to compensate for misalignment and discomfort elsewhere. There are many causes of neck pain, such as poor posture, repetitive movements, spinal misalignment, injury, poor hydration and/or an active inflammatory disease.

  • Poor posture and repetitive movements: Constant bending of the neck in order to look downwards is a commonplace motion performed in the course of working for many people, including those involved with computer work and certain skilled trades. When the body is also in a state of poor posture while performing repetitive movements the stress to the neck is compounded.
  • Spinal misalignment: Subluxation, or misalignment, of the spine often results in neck pain. Chiropractic adjustments performed by the Family Chiropractic Care team can realign your spine and relieve neck pain, as well as back and shoulder pain.
  • Injury: Trauma to the body can cause pain and discomfort in various locations throughout the body, including the neck. Aside from whiplash, the neck can also be a source of pain and discomfort when an injury occurs elsewhere in the body as the spine may be bent or twisted in order to decrease pain at the site of the trauma, such as with a knee injury.
  • Poor hydration: Failing to maintain proper hydration can lead to dehydrated muscles, ligaments and tendons that cause pain, tension and stiffness in the neck.
  • Active inflammatory disease: Autoimmune disorders, such as arthritis, can result in widespread inflammation, which can be a culprit of neck pain.
