How Our Chiropractor Can Provide Neck Pain Relief
The neck or cervical spine has several important jobs, including supporting your head and any movements it makes. Each of those vital tasks can be challenging when living with neck pain. At Mael Chiropractic in Allston, MA, our team is committed to providing safe, natural, and effective neck pain relief. Learn more about how below.
Causes of Neck Pain
Many things can lead to neck pain. Something as simple as sleeping in an odd position can have you living with pain for days.
Nowadays, one primary source of neck pain is using digital devices. Most people sit with poor posture as they work at a computer or scroll through their phones, leading to neck tension. That tension can lead to headaches and many more undesirable symptoms. Other familiar sources of neck pain include, but are not limited to:
- Pinched neck nerve
- Herniated discs
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care provides several methods for natural neck pain treatment, which typically include a combination of the following:
- Adjustments to restore proper alignment
- Mobilization to gently stretch the neck
- Decompression therapy to relieve pinched neck nerve
- Soft tissue therapy reduces tension and inflammation and restores mobility
- Corrective exercises to stretch and strengthen the neck muscles
- Daily recommendations to help build better habits that help prevent the pain from reoccurring
The methods used for neck pain depend on the cause of the pain. For example, with a whiplash injury, the first phase of treatment will focus on relieving pain and inflammation. This relief is because whiplash often creates so much stiffness in the neck that other treatment techniques can be too painful or uncomfortable.
After you can move your neck more freely, adjustments and other methods are added to your treatment plan. Regardless of the pain's source, a chiropractor addresses it in the most comfortable way possible.
