Neck pain often starts as an ache that eventually goes away. These aches and twinges often result from poor neck posture, sleeping with your neck at an unnatural angle, and repeatedly hunching your shoulders. Minor sports injuries could also cause mild neck pain.
You might get headaches and find your neck is uncomfortable when sitting at your desk or searching the internet on your smartphone. You might assume your discomfort is inevitable because you’re aging, but that’s not necessarily true.
People with neck pain often try to massage the muscular knots from their necks and upper shoulders. Some also look for exercises online to help reduce pain and stiffness. Often, these exercises are ineffective or make neck pain worse.
If your neck pain is severe or doesn’t go away, contact Repair Recover Restore for an expert assessment. You might have a problem requiring specialized treatment; for example:
These conditions commonly affect the neck, especially in later life. They’re chronic problems that develop slowly, but one of the leading acute neck pain causes is whiplash.
Whiplash injuries can occur when playing sports, but the most frequent cause is auto accidents. A vehicle bumping into you, especially from the rear, can make your head move violently back and forth, pulling the muscles and connective tissues.
Doctors typically prescribe rest and painkillers for neck pain. Physical therapy can often help, too.
However, the best way to address musculoskeletal neck pain is to correct misalignments and/or repair damaged tissues. The Repair Recover Restore team offers first-class chiropractic treatment and massage therapy to help you overcome neck pain.
Techniques the team uses include the following:
Chiropractic adjustments and instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy techniques restore spinal range of motion. They also re-educate your nervous system and improve posture and biomechanics.
Massage therapy lessens tension and pain in the neck muscles and connective tissues. It uses deep kneading plus muscle and soft tissue manipulation.
Physical therapists use localized manual therapy, specific one-on-one exercises, patient education, soft tissue mobilization, and other treatments tailored to your needs.
You might also benefit from acupuncture for neck pain.
