Neck Pain Treatments in Brooklyn NY 11223

The neck, also referred to as cervical spine, supports the weight of the entire head. It is very flexible and can move the head in all directions. This flexibility makes it vulnerable to all manner of injuries and pain. You are likely to experience neck pain at some point in your life if you have not yet. 

Whether mild or severe, this pain causes significant discomfort. There are many treatment options for neck pain relief. One such method is chiropractic adjustment. Unlike traditional neck pain treatments, it safely reduces neck pain without relying on drugs or surgery.

Symptoms of Neck Pain

Observing the symptoms will help the chiropractor to identify the cause of the pain, which will determine the type of treatment plan to follow. Other than the mild, moderate or severe pain, other symptoms usually associated with neck pain that you are likely to experience may include:
  • A stiff neck – You may have difficulties turning your head from one side to another.
  • Headaches – You can experience headaches when the neck muscles tighten or when the pinched occipital nerve causes pain to radiate to the head.
  • Reduced motion range – Your neck movements may be limited. It might be difficult to lower your head towards your chest or to move it from side to side.
  • General soreness – You can experience a tender or achy pain. It usually affects a particular area on the neck.
  • Nerve pain – The pain you experience in the neck can radiate down to the arms and legs causing tingling, numbness and weakness.
  • Muscle spasm – Your neck muscles can become stiff and knotted. You are not able to move your neck during this time.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

  • Whiplash - It is the sudden movement of the head in a particular direction followed by a quick displacement in the opposite direction. You can experience whiplash during an accident. This sudden motion causes injury to the tissues of your neck. The muscles contract and tighten leading to pain and stiffness.
  • Age – When you advance in age, you become more susceptible to degenerative disorders such as spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, and degenerative disc disease. These conditions directly affect your spine.
  • Poor Posture - While you are sitting at your desk and using the computer for long hours, you are overworking your neck muscles. This poor posture is likely to trigger muscle strain leading to stiffness and chronic pain.
  • Sports and Hobbies - Activities such as playing tennis, baseball, and football, or gardening and working around the house can result in spraining and straining of your neck muscles.
  • Diseases and Infections - Diseases and infections may include fractures, spinal cord compressions, spine tumors and spinal meningitis. All these infections can lead to neck pain.
Chiropractic Treatment for Relief of Neck Pain

Chiropractic treatment usually begins with a procedure known as cervical manipulation. The method is applied by hand to your neck joints. The cervical manipulation helps to improve your mobility and restore your range of motion. After the procedure, you will be able to turn or tilt your head without experiencing much pain. Soreness and stiffness will also reduce.

Most patients do not realize that neck pain is a manifestation of a severe underlying issue. Although pain is the first symptom you are likely to see, it mostly comes after the development of a critical condition. Rather than just dealing with the symptom of pain, I identify and address the underlying problem for long-term neck pain relief. Here are various treatment techniques and manipulations that may be used:
  • Flexion-Distraction – A gentle, hands-on approach during the spinal manipulation.
The specific neck pain treatments I decide to use can likely be a combination of treatments. Apart from spinal manipulation techniques, I can also choose to use manual therapy. Here are some of them:
  • Instrument-assisted Soft Tissue Therapy – tension in your muscles is diagnosed and treated using special tools.
  • Manual Joint Stretching and Resistant Techniques – which can help to eliminate neck pain and other symptoms.
  • Trigger Point Therapy – Proven to be useful in relieving tight and painful areas on your muscles that may be transferring pain to your neck.
  • Nutrition Response Testing - This healing modality helps to identify any chemical imbalances that may be contributing to your body's natural healing process.
