There are many reasons why someone might be dealing with neck pain. Perhaps you slept funny the night before and woke up with a stiff and sore neck.

What is causing my neck pain?

Getting Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
When you first come into our office we will need to perform a physical exam. We will also ask you questions regarding your neck pain and other symptoms you are experiencing to help us make a definitive diagnosis.
Treating Neck Pain with Chiropractic Care
As you might already know, the goals of our chiropractors are to alleviate your symptoms and improve how your body functions without the use of medication or surgery. In fact, chiropractic treatment may provide you with the relief you need to prevent the need for surgery.
One of the most common techniques we use to treat neck pain is cervical manipulation. During manipulation, we will apply manual pressure to certain joints in the neck to help realign the cervical discs in the spine to improve mobility and range of motion. This will also take pressure off certain nerves and other areas of the neck while increasing blood flow to these areas, which will facilitate faster and more effective healing.
Along with cervical manipulation, we may recommend other treatment options such as massage therapy, rehabilitative exercises, physical therapy or mobilization. Everyone is different so we will chat with you during your evaluation to determine which treatments are ideal for you.
