NECK PAIN

Neck pain is characterized by stiffness and soreness in the neck region. As a result, simple movements like turning the head become difficult and can be quite debilitating for performing everyday activities such as driving or sports. Most neck cases are the result of awkward positioning during sleep or sudden movement. Both put strain on the neck muscles while creating tension and pain. More serious cases may include damage to the vertebrae or nerve disks. If neck pain doesn’t improve after a week of low activity combined with anti-inflammatory medication, it’s advised to get checked out by a doctor. We offer several non-invasive neck pain treatment options including Chiropractic care, Acupuncture and Physical Therapy.

Treatment Options

  • Chiropractic: Chiropractic is an alternative health care profession that focuses on treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system. A common cause of headaches and head pain is subluxations, or a slight misalignment of the vertebrae, in the upper back and neck which is effectively treated with chiropractic adjustments.

  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is designed to promote a patient’s overall health and fitness, prevent injury and maximize quality of life. Physical therapy is a treatment method for improving limited body movement and functionality and is effective for head pain caused by musculoskeletal issues including muscle tension and tightness, disc pathology, lack of neck motion, poor posture, and tightness in the back and shoulder blades.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a thousand year old traditional Chinese treatment for chronic pain. It is very effective treatment for head pain and has been used for head pain since the earliest beginnings of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is not only effective for migraine headaches, but also is greatly effective in treating tension headaches, cluster headaches, post-traumatic headaches, and disease-related headaches due to sinus problems, hypertension, or sleeping disorders.
