Neck pain is a common condition that can affect older adults, younger adults, children and adolescents alike. Neck pain, although common, can still pose a significant problem if not treated by a chiropractor. Neck pain can make it difficult to even sit, stand, or lay in bed comfortably. There are different causes of neck pain that can vary and can determine which treatment is best to provide effective pain relief.

What Causes Neck Pain?
Although it may not feel like it, the neck is one of the most used muscles in the body. The neck muscles hold up the head and are responsible for twisting your head from either side, making it one of the most susceptible muscles to injuries. Neck pain is commonly associated with a pulled muscle, known as a muscle strain, and it can happen from simply sleeping in the wrong position.
However, other more complex issues can also cause neck pain such as muscle inflammation of the upper back, herniated discs that can affect the upper spine, and misaligned spine. In addition, if you've been involved in an auto accident, whiplash is a condition that can cause headaches as well as neck pain. In order to effectively treat your neck pain, it's important to get the proper diagnosis from a chiropractor.
How Does a Chiropractor Provide Pain Relief?
Our chiropractor will help determine the best chiropractic treatment for your neck pain depending on the root cause. He will help determine the cause of your neck pain by providing a comprehensive physical exam and asking questions about when your neck pain started and if anything makes it better. He may also use or order x-rays to be taken
Using this information, our chiropractor can help determine if muscle massages, muscle stretches, or gentle adjustments can help alleviate your neck pain. He will also conduct follow-up care to make sure your neck pain is staying at bay.
