Chiropractic for Stiffness and Pain Relief

Stiffness in the neck and back are common problems. Sometimes people wake up with a stiff neck after sleeping or they come home from work with a stiff back after sitting in the office all day. Stiffness can affect just about any part of the body, and is often accompanied by pain as well. Fortunately, our chiropractors have had great success in helping patients get relief and regain full range of motion through all-natural, drug-free chiropractic treatment.

Stiff Neck, Back or Otherwise? Our Chiropractors Can Help

Starting your journey to relief from stiffness and pain to smooth, easy, and pain free movement involves finding out why you are feeling this way in the first place. Our chiropractors can diagnose your condition and then provide an individually-tailored chiropractic treatment plan to help you recover from the underlying reasons you feel and move uncomfortably. The most common root causes of stiffness include:


Vertebrae in the spine can be pulled out of alignment gradually through either poor posture habits or injury. When this happens, nerves become pinched and muscles start to develop poor movement patterns and weakness that can lead to stiffness to any part of the body.


For example: one of the classic symptoms of whiplash, which are commonly caused by a car accident, sports injury or personal injury, is a stiff neck. This is because the sudden whipping motion strains the soft tissues, causing inflammation, stiffness and pain.


Joint pain and stiffness are often the result of long-time, uncorrected mechanical imbalances in the spine and tissues.

Chiropractic Treatments for Stiffness

Depending on the cause, or causes of your stiffness, our chiropractor can recommend the following courses of treatment to help you move and feel better:

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

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

Therapeutic exercises

Our chiropractor will teach you stretches and exercises to help you support proper neck posture and improve range of motion through the upper back, shoulders and arms. They can also advise you on better ergonomics at work or write a letter of recommendation to have your work station assessed.
