Neck and Shoulder Pain Treatment
Your neck, also known as the cervical spine, is made up of several small vertebrae that begin at the base of the skull. The cervical spine supports the weight of the head and allows for movement in nearly every direction. However, this great amount of flexibility makes the neck extremely susceptible to injury and pain. Whether these injuries arise due to everyday use or something more traumatic, they can become very bothersome and prevent patients from enjoying a full range of motion.
Shoulder pain is often attributed to common neck injuries and can cause patients to experience a decreased range of motion. Common shoulder injuries can make it nearly impossible to complete everyday tasks and are often accompanied by sharp pains, numbness, tingling, and stiffness in the neck area.
Common causes of shoulder and neck pain include:
- Auto Accident and Sports Injuries (including whiplash)
- Spinal Stenosis
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Poor Posture
- And More
Neck Pain Symptoms
With this type of injury, patients often complain of pain in one or both sides of the neck, at the base of the skull and down into the shoulder area. The pain can range from dull to sharp and may spread down into the arms and hands. Typically, if you begin to experience neck or shoulder pain that lasts for more than a few days, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our chiropractic care specialists.
How Does Chiropractic Care Work?
Chiropractic adjustments work by targeting the root cause of your neck and shoulder pain. These gentle spinal adjustments are designed to treat your pain without the use of painkillers and are safe enough that they can be used on young children and expectant mothers.
Before recommending a treatment plan to relieve your neck muscle pain, we will complete a comprehensive chiropractic exam that includes details about your medical history and current health concerns and a physical examination. In certain cases, additional examination steps may be needed to get an accurate diagnosis, including X-rays. Once we have a complete diagnosis, we will then recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific health and lifestyle needs.
