Neck Pain Treatment

Neck Pain Treatment in Greensboro

A sore neck is nothing to scoff at. The neck and spine are closely interrelated, so spinal issues such as improper posture, unnatural curvature, or a misalignment can cause neck pain. Depending on how long you’ve had the neck pain, how uncomfortable it is (radiating pain versus stiffness), and which treatments you’ve tried, you may have to see a chiropractor for the pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

There are many neck pain causes. Some of these are related to a prior injury while others are caused by a medical condition such as:

  • Workplace injuries
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Stress
  • Improper posture
  • Myofascial pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cervical osteoarthritis
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Whiplash
  • Infection
  • Cervical foraminal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis

Diagnosing Neck Pain

Medical professionals break down neck pain intensity by three categories. If you’re suffering from neck pain for at least four weeks, this is acute. If the pain goes on for at least 12 weeks, this is subacute. Lastly, if you have dealt with neck pain for three months or longer, this is known as chronic pain.

When you see your chiropractor, they will first make that distinction. They’ll also ask questions about your history of injuries, your sleep habits, posture, your lifestyle, and your job. These can all play a role in neck health.

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain in Greensboro

Although chiropractic care is mostly spine-focused, as we mentioned above, the spine and the neck are closely interrelated. By treating spinal misalignments, posture issues, and other unnatural curvature, most sources of neck pain will vanish as well.

Your chiropractor will use such techniques as spinal decompressions, manipulations, and adjustments. None of these techniques are painful. In fact, you may feel relief from your neck pain in as little as one or two appointments.

With regular chiropractic care, you may be able to reduce your reliance on painkillers. Some patients have even decided against having surgery because their quality of life was restored through holistic treatments like chiropractic care.
