Neck Pain Q & A
Have questions about neck pain? Here are some of the most common questions we get with some quick answers.
What are the common symptoms of neck pain?
Patients experience neck pain in different ways. You might have constant neck pain that’s mild or dull, or you might have neck pain that’s sharp and severe, especially when you move your head. You can also have neck pain that builds up during the day as you keep your head in a certain position while working on a computer. You might also experience:
A stiff neck
What are the causes of neck pain?
You can get neck pain from several possible causes, including muscle strain and chronic conditions that affect your joints.
Daily activities, including looking at your phone or laptop screen for long periods of time, can cause muscle strain in your neck.
You can also have neck pain from osteoarthritis or other conditions that cause joint inflammation.
Herniated discs, rheumatoid arthritis, and neck injuries, such as whiplash, can also make your neck hurt.
Jacobs Chiropractic will give you a thorough evaluation to find the cause of your neck pain.
What does diagnosing neck pain involve?
Jacobs Chiropractic conducts exams and uses imaging tests to determine what’s causing neck pain. Exams assess how severe your pain is, where it occurs, and whether it gets worse with certain movements.
Imaging tests offer detailed images of the affected part of your neck, which provides important information for making a diagnosis.
What are the treatments for neck pain?
Conventional treatments for neck pain include
- Chiropractic adjustments to help restore proper function of the cervical vertebra
- Biophysics to help restore posture and structure to proper alignment.
- A neck brace for support
If conventional treatments aren’t helping your neck pain, surgery is another option. However, surgery comes with the risk of infection and other complications. Chiropractic care offers a safe option for neck pain relief.
