Acute or chronic neck pain can result from a variety of issues. Fortunately, there are many non-invasive chiropractic treatment methods available that can reduce or even completely eliminate pain symptoms so that individuals can get back to their normal activities and routine.
Patients often report a myriad of neck (cervical) pain symptoms including:
- a burning sensation,
- numbness or weakness in one or both arms,
- a tingling or “pins and needles” feeling in the cervical region or along one or both arms,
- jaw pain,
- or just simple muscle pain and tension in the neck and shoulder area.
If you or someone you know are currently experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention. We will perform an examination, take an X-ray and possibly request an MRI or CT in order to make a complete diagnosis. Some patients simply have chronic muscle tension and pain due to poor posture or long hours working with their head in an immobile position, such as with officer workers or truck drivers. Other patients may have spinal structural issues such as osteoarthritis, cervical disc issues, bone spurs or joint issues. Some patients suffer pain in the cervical area from Fibromyalgia or the shingles virus.
Whatever the underlying issue, we have a variety of treatments to address these types of pain. Chiropractic adjustments can treat issues with spinal misalignments that irritate adjacent nerves. We can also recommend exercises to stretch and eventually strengthen muscles in and around the cervical region that will help provide the support necessary for the spine to become healthy and strong. Many patients report significant pain relief from our massage and laser therapy treatments as well.
