Questions And Answers: Neck Pain Relief
What Is Neck Pain?
The neck is a part of the body that consists of numerous muscles, ligaments, and bones which provide range-of-movement and support the head. Any inflammation, abnormalities, and injuries inside the tissues often result in stiffness and neck pain.
The common symptoms associated with pain in the neck include:
– Muscle tightness
– Muscle spasms
– Decreased range-of-motion
The pain in your neck can worsen when you keep your head in one position for extended periods, like sitting in front of your computer.
What Are The Causes Of Neck Pain?
The neck is an area that is susceptible to various conditions and injuries which not only causes pain but can also decrease range-of-motion. Dr. Barry Matthisen and the rest of the team from Alaska Back Care are experienced in treating several neck conditions, which include:
– Injuries caused by whiplash
– Muscle strains
– Conditions such as arthritis
– Nerve compression
Even minor activities such as using the incorrect pillow to sleep on or gritting or grinding your teeth can cause stress to the structures in your neck which can result in pain. If you are currently experiencing neck pain that has lasted for a while, and you are not sure about the cause, we are able to diagnose the issue and start with a treatment plan to assist you with pain relief.
How Is Neck Pain Treated?
Both our chiropractors are experienced and highly-trained in various chiropractic methods which effectively deal with neck pain. They start off with the initial consultation, where they will examine your condition thoroughly along with your medical history.
Dependent on your condition, you may be referred to get an X-ray from a closeby medical-imaging office in order to confirm your diagnosis. From here they are able to set out your customized treatment plan in order to relieve any pain in your neck. This can include:
The Graston Technique®
Non-force and gentle techniques
A variety of manual-chiropractic adjustments
We also provide cupping therapy. This technique involves the application of suction over the musculature across your head, shoulders, and neck. Cupping therapy has been proven to be highly effective when it comes to treating chronic shoulder and neck pain.
In addition to manual methods, the chiropractors also provide passive-based physical therapies, for added pain relief, which includes:
– Ultrasound therapy
– Cold laser therapy
– Electric muscle stimulation
