Signs and Symptoms Associated With Neck Pain:

It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms asssociated with neck pain to seek the right treatment in a timely manner. The symptoms of neck pain may include:

  • Soreness along the side of neck to the shoulder
  • Migraine or headache
  • Difficulty rotating the neck
  • Stiffness
  • Numbness down the arm
  • Poor sleeping quality
  • Poor focus while working

Recognizing these symptoms can be key to addressing neck pain effectively and ensuring appropriate care.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Various factors can contribute to neck pain, necessitating an understanding of the root cause for effective treatment. Common causes include:

  1. Poor Posture: Improper posture while working on your smartphones, laptop, or PC over an extended period can strain neck muscles repetitively, leading to microtrauma in muscles, joints, or ligaments. This is prevalent in office workers, those working from home, and students.
  2. Cervical Spondylosis: Also known as osteoarthritis or “wear and tear” within the neck’s spinal joints. It may cause joint stiffness and limited range of motion in the neck. 
  3. Slipped Disc (Cervical Herniated Disc): The disc within the spine acts like a watery cushion to absorb shock. When the disc herniates, it may pinch the nerve, causing numbness or weakness down the arm.
  4. Previous Injury: Untreated injuries from the past, such as motor vehicle accidents (causing whiplash injuries), morning neck stiffness, muscle strain, and sports injuries, can result in inflammation within spinal joints and surrounding tissues, leading to scar tissue accumulation over time.

How Can Chiropractic Help Manage Neck Pain?

At Renew Chiropractic, we offer a comprehensive approach in neck pain treatment through safe and effective chiropractic care. Here are some of the services or techniques that may be used by our chiropractors to help manage your neck pain:

  • Consultation and Assessment: Before commencing any treatment, our chiropractors conduct a personalized one-on-one consultation and comprehensive assessment to fully understand your neck pain. This process encompasses postural evaluation, orthopedic tests, static palpation, motion palpation, muscle testing, X-ray imaging analysis, and more. The objective is to formulate a personalized neck pain treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Our chiropractors utilize their hands to perform specific, high-speed yet gentle thrusts to the spine and joints. This technique aims to restore and enhance communication between the nervous system and the body.
  • Trigger Point Therapy: This therapy targets sensitive, tight knots that develop over time, with the goal of releasing muscle knots and restoring the original length and strength of the muscles.
  • Dry Needling: By using thin needles to stimulate trigger points in the neck and shoulder, this method induces muscle twitch responses, promoting muscle relaxation.
  • Exercise and Rehabiliation: Tailored exercise programs may be recommended to pinpoint specific muscles and strengthen neck muscles, not only helping to restore the cervical spinal curve, but also preventing the recurrence of neck pain.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Our chiropractors provide expert advice on ergonomics, orthotics, nutrition, and stress management to address contributing factors and enhance overall well-being.
