Symptoms of Neck Pain

It is important to recognize the symptoms of neck pain so you can seek out treatment for relief. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional experienced in muskoskeletal pain.

 

Symptoms can include:

  • Stiffness or tightness in neck muscles, especially after prolonged immobility.

  • Difficulty turning or tilting the head, indicating reduced range of motion.

  • Pain in the neck, shoulders, and upper back, ranging from dull aches to sharp pains, potentially radiating to arms or head.

  • Muscle tension or knots in the neck and upper back, often tender to the touch.

  • Headaches, particularly tension-type headaches originating from the base of the skull.

  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in arms, hands, or fingers, suggesting nerve or joint involvement.

  • Clicking, popping, or grinding sensations when moving the neck, indicating joint issues or muscle tightness.

 Treatment Therapies for Neck Pain Relief

We specialize in providing comprehensive solutions for neck pain relief. Our integrated approach combines traditional chiropractic techniques with innovative therapies.

Spinal Adjustments

Our chiropractors specialize in precise manual adjustments aimed at realigning the vertebrae of the cervical spine. By restoring proper alignment, we alleviate joint dysfunction and reduce nerve compression, which are common contributors to neck pain. These adjustments are tailored to your individual needs and are performed with skill and precision to ensure maximum effectiveness and comfort.

Soft Tissue or Muscle Release Therapy

Tense muscles in the neck can exacerbate pain and limit mobility. Our soft tissue or muscle release therapy techniques, including massage therapy, target these tense muscles to promote relaxation, improve circulation, and enhance tissue health. Through targeted manipulation and pressure, we release built-up tension, allowing for greater comfort and flexibility in the neck area.

Therapeutic Exercises

To complement our hands-on treatments, we prescribe customized exercises designed to strengthen the muscles supporting the neck and improve overall flexibility. These exercises are tailored to address specific weaknesses or imbalances, helping to reduce the risk of future injuries and promote long-term relief. By incorporating therapeutic exercises into your routine, you can actively participate in your own healing process and optimize the effectiveness of your chiropractic care

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a holistic technique that enhances blood flow and reduces muscle tension in the neck. By placing suction cups on the skin, we create a vacuum effect that draws blood to the surface, promoting circulation and facilitating the release of toxins and stagnant energy. This therapy can provide immediate relief from pain and discomfort, making it a valuable addition to our comprehensive treatment approach.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Release

IASTM is a technique that involves using a specialized tool to gently scrape the skin, breaking down scar tissue and adhesions in the soft tissues of the neck. This helps to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. Gua Sha can be particularly effective for addressing chronic tension and stiffness in the neck, allowing for greater mobility and comfort.

Dry Needling

Dry needling involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points in the muscles of the neck. This technique targets trigger points and tight muscles, releasing tension and relieving muscle spasms. By stimulating the body's natural healing response, dry needling can help to improve range of motion and reduce pain, offering effective relief for those suffering from neck discomfort.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to restore the flow of energy, or Qi, and alleviate pain. In the context of neck pain, acupuncture can help to reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and promote relaxation. By addressing both local and systemic imbalances, acupuncture offers a holistic approach to neck pain relief.
