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.
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.

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:
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.
