Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Your neck contains several small vertebrae that provide range of motion for your neck and support your head. The structure of your neck is flexible but makes the area susceptible to injury.

The most common causes of neck pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Direct trauma
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease

You can also develop chronic neck pain due to the natural wear-and-tear on the vertebrae associated with aging. Bad habits, such as poor posture and lack of exercise, can also increase your risk for chronic neck pain.

How does chiropractic care relieve neck pain?

The team at HealthWise Chiropractic uses a variety of manual manipulation techniques to realign vertebrae in your neck. By ensuring alignment in your neck, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can reduce pressure on your nerves and stop vertebrae from rubbing together.

In some cases, adjusting instruments, like the Activator®, can improve alignment in your neck and other parts of the spine to alleviate chronic pain. These instruments deliver high-speed, low-force thrusts to vertebrae to encourage proper alignment. While highly effective, adjustments with chiropractic instruments are fast and painless.

What can I expect during my initial consultation for neck pain?

The providers at HealthWise Chiropractic discuss your health history and current condition to get a better understanding of your needs. They perform a physical exam of your neck, testing your range of motion and identifying areas of pain.

In addition to evaluating the structures in your neck, your provider examines your entire spine, surrounding muscles, and posture to determine if existing issues are contributing to your neck pain.

Depending on the cause of your pain or mobility issues, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider creates a treatment plan that may involve a combination of manual manipulations and chiropractic instrument adjustments. To further enhance your overall health, they may also suggest massage therapy to increase blood circulation and flexibility in your neck and spine.

Following your initial treatment, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider recommends a timeline for follow-up treatments to help you maintain your results.
