Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Relief

Neck pain is a common source of stress and suffering among the American population. However, no matter how common it might be, it’s not normal, and it’s not something you have to live with. In this guide, Dr. Dinsmore and the team at Dinsmore Chiropractic Clinic in Ontario, OR, share some of the most common sources of neck pain and how chiropractic care can provide natural neck pain relief.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

If you’re suffering from neck pain, there could be several issues that are causing it. For many people, the main cause is actually poor posture. As you lean your head forward, your neck has to hold up more weight than usual. This causes tension, misalignment, herniated discs, and more. Other common causes include:

  • Whiplash
  • Conditions like spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and osteoarthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Sleeping in an awkward position
  • Carrying heavy objects, especially backpacks and purses

Additionally, neck pain can be caused by issues outside of the neck. A herniated disc or pinched nerve in the back, for example, can lead to neck pain.

Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatments

Below are some of the most effective and natural methods for neck pain.

Adjustments and Manipulation

Chiropractors utilize their hands as well as small instruments to adjust and manipulate the spine. This restores proper alignment, which relieves pressure on nerves, muscles, and other soft tissues.

Spinal Decompression

When nerves become compressed, the most effective method of relief is to release the compression. Decompression therapy gently stretches the spine, which does indeed take pressure off the nerves. Additionally, it relieves tension and releases strain on the spine. It also pulls blood and healing nutrients to the spine, which help plump up the discs and stimulate the body’s healing processes.

Chiropractic Massage

Tension is often at the core of neck pain, and chiropractic massage can effectively reduce or eliminate that tension. It can also break up scar tissue and release trigger points, both of which can cause chronic neck pain.

Therapeutic Exercise

For almost any cause of pain, therapeutic exercise can help. These stretching and strengthening exercises will help your tissues heal properly, as well as help prevent neck pain from returning.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation therapies send small electric pulses to your muscles or nerves. This relieves muscle spasms, tension, and pain while reducing inflammation, improving blood flow, and stimulating healing.
