Treating Your Neck Pain

Treating Your Neck Pain

Dr. Andrew Winger and the team at Redondo Family Chiropractic in Federal Way, WA, understand neck pain and its many causes. They’re ready to help you reduce or eliminate the pain and its underlying sources. 

A Real Pain In The Neck 

Neck pain makes everything more difficult. It usually indicates underlying damage or misalignment in the back or neck areas. Until the underlying problem is properly recognized and resolved, that neck pain isn’t going anywhere. 

Most neck pain originates in the cervical spine. That’s the area between the base of your skull and about midway between your shoulders. Your cervical spine acts as a critical connection between your brain and the rest of your central nervous system. It’s packed with blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. The bones in your cervical spine (or “neck”) are unlike those anywhere else in the human body. They allow greater mobility than any other part of the spine, including the ability to bend forward or backward or lean to either side or to rotate our heads to look in different directions. And they do all this while supporting our heads! 

What Causes Neck Pain? 

The most common causes of neck pain include: 

  • Stress or anxiety  
  • Poor posture  
  • Extended periods sitting at a desk or working at a computer 
  • Sleeping in an awkward position 
  • Sports injuries, falls, or other unusual strain or sudden extension  
  • Auto accidents (whiplash) 

In some cases, neck pain can be a symptom of something more systemic: 

  • Arthritis 
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Fibromyalgia  
  • Degenerative discs  
  • Inflammation or infection 

Many more severe ailments can produce neck pain as well. These are less common, but neck pain should never simply be masked with medication or ignored. You wouldn’t put a piece of electrical tape over the warning light on your dashboard and pretend that means the transmission has been fixed. When your body is telling you there’s a problem, let your family chiropractor in Federal Way, WA, help you find and resolve the source of your neck pain. 

Effectively Treating Neck Pain 

Dr. Winger offers a range of chiropractic services, including the specialized practice of Chiropractic Biophysics. Many sources of neck pain come down to the poor alignment of the spine, including the cervical region described above. By restoring proper alignment, pain is reduced or eliminated. Your body is then able to better heal itself the way it was designed to do.  

Quality chiropractic care is about treating individuals, not simply conditions. The team at Redondo Family Chiropractic wants you to feel as comfortable as possible. Nothing is decided without your participation and input. We’re always available to answer any questions you have regarding care, costs, or logistics.
