Neck Pain Q & A
Is neck pain serious?
Neck pain is incredibly common and affects most adults at some time during their lives. In most cases, neck pain isn’t dangerous. However, it can cause physical limitations, pain, and other problems that interfere with your life.
What causes neck pain?
Your neck is composed of a network of muscles, bones, cartilage, ligaments, and other tissues. Any time one of these components is damaged or irritated, you can experience neck pain.
Some of the factors that may contribute to neck pain include:
- Muscle strain
- Herniated discs
- Poor posture
- Bone spurs in the neck
- Problems with alignment
In many cases, people experience neck pain because of a combination of these issues.
How does South Shore Chiropractic diagnose neck pain?
Before developing a treatment plan, the doctors at South Shore Chiropractic work to figure out the cause of your pain. In most cases, this involves a physical exam, a review of your medical history, and questions about your symptoms. Your doctor also may order imaging tests to look for issues like bone spurs or herniated discs.
After Dr. Campo or one of his colleagues has reviewed all of this information, he develops a treatment plan to address each of the factors that contributes to your pain.
What treatments are available?
South Shore Chiropractic offers multiple treatments that may help with your neck pain. Some of these options include:
- Chiropractic adjustments - Chiropractic adjustments remove irritation from nerves that may make the pain in your neck worse. This treatment also improves communication between nerves and the tissues in your neck, which promotes healing.
- Massage therapy - Massage therapy loosens stiff muscles in your neck, allowing you to move more freely and experience less pain.
- Ultrasound therapy - Ultrasound therapy reduces pain and inflammation in your neck.
- Electrical muscle stimulation - Electrical muscle stimulation may improve muscle function in your neck, making it stronger and more resistant to injury. Studies have shown that this treatment may also give you relief from pain.
In most cases, the doctors at South Shore Chiropractic recommend a combination of treatments to help you get relief from your neck pain and improve the overall stability of your neck.
