Chiropractic Care to Help Alleviate Your Neck Pain
Living with neck pain means that your ability to do daily activities will be severely limited. Even small motions, such as turning your head from side to side, can be painful. Fortunately, our chiropractor at Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Princeton Junction is ready to help you find relief from that neck pain by addressing the spinal misalignments that are at the root of the pain.
Causes of Neck Pain
There are many causes of neck pain, so determining the basis of your pain is a priority for our chiropractor. The cause of your neck pain or discomfort dictates the treatments our chiropractor uses. Some possible causes of neck pain include:
- Whiplash from a car crash
- Spondylosis, or arthritis of the neck
- Poor posture
- Pinched nerve
It’s also possible that your daily activities are causing neck pain. Things like carrying a backpack on only one shoulder or continually looking down at your phone can lead to considerable pain in the neck. Addressing those issues in conjunction with chiropractic care can help to reduce pain and prevent future issues.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Chiropractic treatment of neck pain includes several components. These all work together to provide you with optimal relief from neck pain. The primary component of neck pain treatment is spinal adjustments by our chiropractor. These adjustments slowly move the spine back into the proper alignment to reduce stress on any of the structures surrounding the affected area. Once the spine reaches optimal alignment, the chiropractic adjustments keep it in place.
Depending on the circumstances, our chiropractor will suggest heat or ice therapy to help alleviate the pain. You may also receive instructions about special stretches and exercises that you can do at home to improve your neck. It’s important to remember that chiropractic treatments don’t produce full results instantly. The results are cumulative, so you’ll start to experience relief after a few sessions. Each visit after that, you’ll experience more relief until you don’t notice the pain or discomfort anymore.
