How to Seek Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Treatment

Written By Scottsdale Spinal Healthcare on October 17, 2018

At any given time, about 10% of the adult population is suffering from neck pain.

If you’ve ever experienced it yourself, you know how debilitating it can be. Your neck supports the full weight of your head and is constantly rotating. This flexibility, or lack thereof, makes your neck more susceptible to pain.

To relieve this pain, chiropractors offer neck pain treatment that focuses on the source. Through holistic techniques, chiropractors can improve the mobility of your neck, allowing you to live a painless and healthy life.

Do You Need Neck Pain Treatment?

Neck pain is caused by a range of factors both environmental and physical. Although injury is a common cause, repetitive motions that are constantly putting stress on your neck contribute more widely to neck pain.

Common factors that can cause neck pain include:

  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Repetitive movement
  • Whiplash, or sudden forced movement usually caused by accidents
  • Degeneration
  • Poor posture
  • Spinal stenosis

Unfortunately, neck pain symptoms do not dissipate on their own. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your best option is to seek treatment. If you’re looking for treatment without the use of opioids and surgery, then chiropractic care for neck pain treatment is the way to go.

What to Expect from Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment

Chiropractors like Dr. Martin W. Kollasch of Scottsdale Spinal Health develop neck pain treatment with you at the center. From the initial exam to the adjustments, every step of the treatment is customized to fit each patient’s individual needs.

When first seeking chiropractic care for neck pain, you will be asked questions about your daily habits and given a short exam to try and determine the source of your pain. This exam may include diagnostic imaging if necessary.

To treat your pain, most chiropractors practice cervical manipulation or manual adjustments made to correct the misalignment of your spine. Precise pressure is applied to specific joints in your neck to release the tension build up. Regular adjustments combined with physical therapy and massage will improve your mobility, reduce stiffness and restore the range of motion in your neck.
