Neck Pain Q & A
How common is neck pain?
Most patients experience neck pain at some time during their lives. While many of these patients experience a mild case of neck pain that resolves on its own, others continue to experience severe symptoms that interfere with their lives.
Why does neck pain occur?
Neck pain may occur for many different reasons. One of the most common causes of neck pain is whiplash, which may occur even after a minor car accident. Other patients may experience neck pain because of structural problems in the neck, such as a herniated disc, bone spur, or poor alignment of the vertebrae. Chronic conditions, such as arthritis, may contribute to neck pain as well.
How does Back to Health Chiropractic treat neck pain?
When a patient comes in with neck pain, the doctors at Back to Health Chiropractic begin the treatment of neck pain by determining the cause of the patient’s symptoms. Once the doctors identify the cause of the pain, they create a treatment plan designed to address the underlying issue and improve the pain.
Depending on the specifics of the patient’s condition, the doctors at Back to Health Chiropractic may use several different therapies to treat neck pain. Some of the therapies include:
- Spinal manipulation: The purpose of spinal manipulation is to resolve any problems with the alignment of the patient’s spine, which may contribute to the development of neck pain.
- Soft tissue manipulation: Soft tissue manipulation breaks down scar tissue and adhesions in the neck muscles that may exacerbate neck pain. This therapy also loosens tight muscles that add to sensations of pain.
- Corrective exercises: In some cases, patients experience neck pain because of problems with their posture or the way they move. Corrective exercises resolve these issues and help the patient improve the stability and strength in the neck.
- Physiotherapy: Patients with neck pain may also benefit from various physiotherapy techniques, including moist heat therapy, cryotherapy, and mechanical traction.
How effective is neck pain treatment?
For most patients, symptoms of neck pain improve gradually with treatment. Many patients notice some results immediately, but patients won’t reach their full potential until they’ve attended several treatment sessions.
