Types of Neck Pain

The types of neck pain you may experience depend on your situation and the underlying cause of your pain. Generally, you may notice a feeling of tension and discomfort when you turn your head or move your neck. You may also notice sharp pain from specific neck injuries. Consistent or persistent pain that does not fade may also occur with specific injuries.

In most cases, you will notice the pain and other symptoms. The discomfort and symptoms help a chiropractor in our clinic identify the cause of your pain and develop a personalized plan to help with healing and recovery.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

Because there are many possible causes of neck pain and similar symptoms, we always recommend a thorough evaluation in our office to determine the specific cause of yours. This will involve a discussion with our chiropractic team of your symptoms and lifestyle, as well as a physical examination and possibly diagnostic tests, such as X-rays.

One of the most common causes of neck pain that we see in our office is that of whiplash, which most often occurs as a result of car accidents. If you have recently been in an auto accident or similar incident, the abrupt motion could have damaged the muscles, tendons, and ligaments surrounding your upper spine. As a result, you will likely experience neck pain and stiffness.

Your lifestyle and posture can also cause neck pain. For example, if you work a desk job and spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen without proper support, you could be putting excess strain on your neck and back. Overall poor posture can also contribute to neck pain.

Sports injuries are another common contributor to neck pain, so if you’ve recently injured your back while playing a sport, we may be able to help.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic treatment for neck pain is ideal because it is holistic, non-invasive, and drug-free. Furthermore, it focuses on targeting and relieving your pain at its source while preventing the same issues from returning.

All of our treatment plans are custom built based on your needs, injury, lifestyle, and other factors. However, one of the most common treatment we’ll recommend for neck pain is that of spinal adjustments, which focus on correcting alignment problems in the spine as well as relieving tension caused by “stiff neck.” We can perform these adjustments manually right here in our office, and we may also recommend them in conjunction with massage therapy or other techniques. Many patients find that they experience some relief after just one or two sessions, though we often encourage multiple sessions to ensure optimal healing.
