ABOUT NECK PAIN

Neck pain is something we have all dealt with in one way or another. Whether you woke up randomly with neck pain one morning confused about how it happened or got in a car accident and now have horrible whiplash pain, neck pain can have a significant impact on quality of life. Neck pain often impacts more than just the neck.

Many people also experience headaches and upper back pain when they have a neck problem. Depending on which part of the neck is affected, some people can develop shoulder pain and some even have tingling and numbness in their hands or arms. Some pre-existing conditions like degenerative disc disease, spinal arthritis, and disc herniations can cause neck pain to develop. Even conditions like TMJ and rotator cuff injury can lead to neck pain as the body will begin to rely more on neck muscles to move since the other areas aren’t working properly.

CAUSES OF NECK PAIN

Neck pain can originate from many different causes which generally lead to pain and stiffness around the neck area. Most commonly, neck pain happens when poor posture and spinal alignment issues are left untreated for more than a few weeks. This can lead to increased pressure on nerves and joints which will inevitably cause pain and stiffness in the neck and surrounding areas. The longer these problems are present the higher the chance for pain to occur. 

RISK FACTORS

Poor posture and spinal alignment problems often develop from lifestyle and work environment. If a person is seated for a long time or doing work which causes their neck to be in an unbalanced position, neck pain will likely happen sooner rather than later. Think of a person who takes phone calls or works at a computer all day, or has to work with their hands overhead looking up, all of these scenarios will put the neck into poor positioning and will lead to neck pain.

Just think of that stiff, sore feeling we all get across the neck and upper back after a long day. This is the chief example of how neck pain develops happening in real-time. Don’t just ignore these symptoms or imagine they will go away on their own. Pain like this almost always worsens over time, so don’t wait for that moment to happen.

The sooner these problems are addressed the easier it is to treat these types of conditions. Your best bet is to get checked out the moment this type of pain occurs so it can be treated quickly and effectively before any further damage is done.

TREATMENT OPTION

The good news is that neck pain is highly treatable and responds exceptionally well to chiropractic care. At Blue Mountain Wellness, a skilled team will work with you from start to finish to ensure your problems are addressed effectively.

One of our doctors will meet with you to listen to your problem and discuss what your goals are for care. Your doctor will then take x-rays of your spine and perform a detailed analysis of spinal motion and alignment to accurately diagnose the root cause of your condition. 

After thoroughly evaluating the information obtained during the examination, the doctor will design a customized treatment plan to treat your specific needs and go over treatment options with you.

Treatments for neck pain may include various therapies such as neck decompression, mechanical traction therapy, laser therapy, electric stimulation therapy, vibration plate therapy, home stretching, and strengthening exercises depending on your unique needs. The doctor will also perform spinal adjustments to correct spinal alignment and posture issues, relieve pain, and take pressure off irritated joints and nerves.

Our Treatment options for Neck Pain


Chiropractic Care

Our approach to Chiropractic begins with a comprehensive exam to look at the structure and the function of the spine. We have several ways to correct that through non-invasive chiropractic techniques.

Decompression

Decompression is a non-surgical and non-invasive therapy that can help reduce back, neck, leg, and arm pain. It works by reducing the pressure on the discs and joints.

Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR)

Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR) is a therapy intended to restore movement patterns and stabilize the spine. Our office is equipped with balance machines used by our patients after manipulation to reset the neuro-muscular pathways.

Electric Stimulation Therapy

Electric Stimulation Therapy targets the muscles in the treatment area. It sends a current into the muscle that ultimately helps it to relax and treat inflammation and irritation. Electric Stimulation Therapy is not a painful treatment and is extremely effective. Typical Treatments are 10 minutes.

Exercises and Stretches

Exercises and Stretches are a great way to improve posture and range of motion as well as decrease back pain and prevent injury while decreasing muscle soreness.

Mechanical Traction

Mechanical Traction is a great way to reduce inflammation and swelling of joints by increasing mobility in the spine. This form of therapy is typically about 10 minutes and is much like getting a massage
