Neck Pain Q & A

Progressive Therapy and Rehabilitation Center

What causes neck pain?

The neck consists of a delicate structure of vertebrae, joints, nerves, and muscles that’s responsible for supporting the head and moving through a considerable range of motion. Any health condition or injury that disrupts that structure can lead to neck pain.

Some of the problems that affect the neck include:

  • Strain from heavy bags and cell phone use
  • Poor posture
  • Occupational injury or overuse
  • Automobile accident
  • Sports injury
  • TMJ disorder
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis

When should I see a chiropractor about my neck pain?

The occasional stiff neck or minor strain usually isn’t a problem and resolves within a few days. However, any injury to the neck from an accident requires immediate medical attention.

The following scenarios warrant a trip to the chiropractor:

  • Your neck pain doesn’t go away or worsens after a few days of rest and self-care
  • Your neck pain starts to radiate down into the arms or legs
  • Your neck pain interferes with your ability to perform your daily tasks
  • Numbness or tingling accompanies your neck pain

If you’re unsure whether or not to see a chiropractor about your neck pain, it’s always okay to err on the side of caution. You can always call Progressive Therapy and Rehabilitation Services for recommendations.

The earlier you seek treatment for your neck pain, the more responsive your body will be to treatment.

Which treatments help with neck pain?

The specialists at Progressive Therapy and Rehabilitation Center use multiple treatment tactics to improve your neck health. The most effective treatments include:

Physical therapy

A physical therapist works with you to make structural corrections to your neck using targeted stretches and exercises. They can also help you make ergonomic and postural corrections to prevent pain.

Chiropractic adjustments

Your chiropractor may use cervical manipulation to realign your cervical spine, restore range of motion, and reduce pain. Cervical adjustments involve quick, precise force to the neck joints to improve alignment.

Massage therapy

Manual manipulation of the muscles in your neck and surrounding tissues helps relieve the tension that contributes to your neck pain. By targeting soft tissue, massage therapy complements cervical spine adjustments that target the spine and ligaments.
