Many people experience neck pain at some point in their life. Your neck’s wide range of motion and all the weight it must support make it susceptible to injury. At Cleveland Chiropractic and Massage, Dr. Michael Elliott has been treating the neck pain of Garner (40/42 area) residents for over 20 years. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will identify and address the root cause of your pain and immobility.
Causes of Neck Pain
One common cause of neck pain is whiplash. This can affect many parts of your neck, including the vertebrae, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and discs, to cause you pain. As you age, you may have neck pain due to arthritis or spinal stenosis. In the case of spinal stenosis, the small nerve pathways in your vertebrae compress to trap nerve roots, causing pain in your neck that can radiate down your arms. Other common factors of neck pain include poor posture, obesity, weak abdominal muscles, stress, and tension. Chiropractic adjustments performed will vary depending on which of these conditions are responsible for your discomfort and immobility.
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
When you first visit our office, Dr. Elliott will ask you questions about your health history and the history of your neck pain. Our chiropractor will also observe how you carry yourself when you walk and sit. Your range of motion will be tested. Our chiropractor may also order an imaging test to produce the most accurate possible diagnosis.
Chiropractic adjustments will restore your neck’s natural alignment, relieving your pain, improving your mobility, and promoting healing. Other treatments include massage therapy to increase your blood flow and relax muscles in the affected area. Corrective exercises will strengthen your body, enhancing the benefits of chiropractic care and reducing the likelihood of your pain returning in the future.
Chiropractic care is based on holistic healing of the entire body without invasive procedures such as surgery or harmful and addictive pain medications. Instead, a chiropractor treats the root of the cause of pain instead of just the symptoms.
