Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

The neck bears the weight of the head and is responsible for turning, twisting, and bending in order to look in different directions. A pain in the neck can be the result of a pinched nerve or a herniated disc. This is when the vertebrae shifts out of alignment and pushes on the nerves in the neck. When this happens it can cause pain to radiate from the neck into the upper back and the arms. Vertebrae can shift out of alignment from:

  • Poor posture such as sitting hunched over your phone all day
  • Your neck being stuck in an awkward position for a long period of time
  • Your neck being forced beyond its normal range of motion
  • Sleeping wrong
  • Whiplash from auto accidents or injury can also cause neck pain to occur. The sudden movement from whiplash snaps the neck awkwardly, over stretches, and tears the tendons and ligaments in the neck.

Can neck pain can be prevented?

Some of the more common reasons for neck pain can be prevented by using a few simple techniques. These can include:

  • Using a firm pillow when you sleep
  • Sleeping on your side or on your back
  • Maintaining good posture when your sit or stand
  • Proper ergonomic posture in order to view your computer monitor while sitting at a desk
  • Getting regular exercise to maintain proper movement in your neck

What is treatment like?

Treatment for neck pain through the multidisciplinary practice of DMC Healthcare works on treating the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and bones that support the neck and allow movement. After an examination determines the direct root cause of your neck pain a specific treatment plan can be created to address your symptoms. Some of these treatments can include:

Medication – Prescription medications may be used to reduce inflammation, relax muscles, and relieve pain.

Massage Therapy –Myofascial release, by using a TENS unit, an electrical stimulation machine, pain in the muscles due to inflammation and tension can be alleviated.

Spinal Manipulation – Adjustments of the vertebrae in the neck can put the body back in proper alignment allowing its natural healing ability to take over.

Physical therapy and exercise – Your orthopedist might refer you to a physical therapist who will customize a program of stretching and strengthening to relieve your neck pain and help prevent future problems.

Patient Reviews About Our Chiropractic Treatment For Neck Pain

Here are some reviews from our patients regarding our chiropractic treatments for neck pain:

I visited Premier Health Chiro + Med for some neck and back pain and tightness after a few games of golf. I was very impressed by the care and professionalism of Dr. Cooper Brown, DC and his staff. He diagnosed the problem quickly and performed an adjustment that relieved most of the restricted movement and pain. He also used the pro adjuster to further loosen up the tightness in my neck. I then enjoyed some relaxing time in the recovery room with the muscle stem machine and spinal decompression table, where Dr. Hunter was very attentive and helpful. The facility was clean, modern and comfortable. The care was personalized and effective. I highly recommend Premier Health Chiro + Med to anyone looking for a quality chiropractic service.

Dr Cooper Brown is one of the best Doctors I have ever seen! He has really made an excellent impact on my back and neck. Highly recommend!

I see Dr. Cooper Brown, but others in the practice help if necessary. My sciatica is feeling much less painful and I’m walking better. Today was session #5, but I was feeling relief after the consultation and visit #2. Dr. Brown explained clearly what was going on with my spine and showed me where there were issues using the X-rays he took. I feel confident that my sciatica, neck issues, and shoulder issue can be resolved in the time frame of my treatment plan. I’m glad that I found this practice so close to home with reasonable rates and excellent staff. I highly recommend this practice.
