Neck Pain Q&A

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain develops from many causes, including poor posture, an injury, or from the general wear-and-tear that occurs as you age. Common conditions that lead to neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Whiplash
  • Arthritis

While neck pain isn’t usually a serious health condition, the pain you experience can affect your quality of life. The team at East Falls Chiropractic designs a plan to relieve your pain and works closely with you to design lifestyle modifications that prevent a recurrence.

How can chiropractic care help my neck pain?

The chiropractors at East Falls Chiropractic specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Many pain conditions that occur in the neck generate from muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves. 

Using conservative methods, the chiropractic team helps improve the health, function, and strength of your neck and its supporting muscles to reduce pain. Some of the treatments the team may suggest include manual manipulation, physical therapy, and massage therapy.

East Falls Chiropractic is equipped with advanced chiropractic tools, including the ProAdjuster and electrical stimulation, which may be incorporated into your treatment plan. 

What can I expect during an evaluation for my neck pain?

You can expect a thorough evaluation from the team at East Falls Chiropractic when you come in with concerns about neck pain. The information gathered during your evaluation helps direct your personalized treatment plan. 

During your evaluation, the team reviews your symptoms and onset of pain, as well as your medical history. They also perform a physical exam that may include special tests to assess the function and range of motion in your neck.

Diagnostic images, such as an X-ray, may be needed to rule out or confirm the underlying cause of your neck pain. 

Can chiropractic care help my headaches?

Unfortunately, neck pain may not stay localized in your neck. Many times, headaches and migraines develop due to issues related to your neck. If you suffer from headaches or migraines, the team at East Falls Chiropractic can develop a plan to alleviate your head pain. Treatment may include spinal manipulation and nutrition therapy.

Neck pain can be debilitating, but you don’t have to suffer from it. Call East Falls Chiropractic or book an appointment online today.
