Neck Pain

Neck Pain Relief

The neck is the most flexible and most vulnerable part of your spine—this is where the spinal cord leaves your brain to deliver messages to the rest of the body, so it also does a crucial job. Imagine trying to hold up a 10 to 12 lbs. bowling ball all day with the help of only a few rubber bands. Your head weight ranges between 10-12lbs and the rubber bands are your muscles. Using this analogy, it’s easy to understand why the neck is so easy to injure. Thankfully, our chiropractors are neck specialists. With their expertise and specialty training they will be able to recommend a detailed treatment plan that will not only provide pain relief but provide the appropriate environment for your body to heal as correctly as possible.

Common Neck Pain Causes

Our chiropractors diagnose and provide neck pain treatment that remedies the underlying causes of pain without drugs or other invasive procedures. These effective, natural treatments restore correct spinal alignment, release pinched nerves, alleviate soft tissue sprains and strains and help you improve posture so you can prevent future injuries and premature degeneration like arthritis. The treatments offered depend on what is causing the pain in the first place:

Neck Injuries like Whiplash

When the head is suddenly whipped back and forth due to a car accident, sports injury or other personal injury, the vertebrae can be forced out of alignment. The muscles, ligaments and tendons are also strained when this happens. Neck pain, stiffness, headaches, difficulty focusing and even blurred vision can result. Our chiropractors provide spinal adjustments to correct subluxations in the vertebrae, combined with therapeutic exercises to heal the soft tissue injuries, relieve the painful symptoms and restore full range of motion in the neck.

Poor Posture Habits

Frequent “forward head posture” (FHP) from looking down over a computer or other work surface, as well as poor sleep posture, etc. can slowly deform the neck by pulling neck vertebrae out of alignment and cause the neck’s supporting soft tissues to become incorrectly trained to hold abnormal, nerve-pinching posture. Spinal adjustments and therapeutic exercises, as well as ergonomics counseling are effective at retraining the soft tissues, strengthening neck muscles and providing neck pain relief.


Stress often causes tension in the neck muscles and prevents people from concentrating on good posture.

Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatments

After diagnosing the causes of your neck pain, our chiropractors can provide treatment options for natural, lasting relief.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our doctors gentle, precise spinal adjustments realign vertebrae to remove pressure from discs, which relieves nerve pressure and pain.

Therapeutic exercises
