Chronic Neck Pain

What Are the Main Causes of Daily or Chronic Neck Pain

Do you suffer from chronic or daily neck pain? Are you waking up with a stiff or sore neck after a night’s sleep? Have you suffered a sports-related injury or recently been in a car accident that is causing you neck pain? 

If you’re experiencing neck pain, you’re not alone. In fact, according to Harvard Health, approximately 80 percent of Americans suffer from some form of neck-related pain at least once in their lifetime. (Health, 2016)

Here Are Some of the Main Contributors of Neck Pain:

  • Poor Posture
  • Stress Related
  • Tech Neck (Neck Pain Caused by Prolonged Computer or Phone Screen Use)
  • Car Accident or Whiplash
  • Sports-Related Injury
  • Arthritis
  • Disc Degeneration
  • Age Related Pain

Although neck pain may be a common symptom of a neck injury, prolonged pain, and discomfort are not normal and should be diagnosed and treated by a spinal specialist to ensure that your neck and spine are functioning properly. 

If left untreated neck pain can become a more serious issue that will lead to debilitating pain, a loss of mobility, and other symptoms like headaches. 

At Advanced Sports and Family Chiropractic and Acupuncture, our top-rated doctors specialize in treating many health issues, especially those related to the spine and musculoskeletal system.

What Happens to the Neck When an Injury Occurs

A strong neck and a healthy spine support the human head. The constant strain that is put on the neck from carrying the weight of the average human head can lead to pain and discomfort, especially if an individual has poor posture, has slept awkwardly, or was involved in an accident that caused violent trauma to the head or neck. 

We typically see tense muscles, strained ligaments, and spinal misalignments when a neck injury occurs.

If a neck injury is left untreated, these common neck pain symptoms can lead to more serious health concerns. Strained muscles and ligaments can lead to daily or chronic pain, and spinal misalignments can become a serious issue like a bulging or herniated disc.  

Be Aware of “Tech Neck” and How it Affects Our Posture

Tech neck refers to a modern phenomenon where individuals experience neck pain and damage to the spine due to the prolonged use of desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other handheld devices.

The term “Tech Neck” is derived from the posture exhibited by those using these devices, which involves looking down at the screen for extended periods.

If not monitored correctly, tech neck can lead to various musculoskeletal issues and discomfort in the neck and upper back.

ASFCA Offers Relief from Neck Pain with Safe, Natural Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture & Physical Therapy Treatments

At ASFCA, we take pride in treating neck-related injuries or conditions through various disciplines, including Top-Rated Chiropractic Care, Board-Certified Acupuncture, and Physiotherapy.

Top Rated Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Our chiropractic treatments for neck pain are designed to correct misalignments in the spine, particularly the cervical spine (the neck area).  

At ASFCA, our top-rated chiropractors use gentle manual manipulation techniques, also known as adjustments, to address neck pain naturally.

Here’s how ASFCA chiropractic care can help with neck pain:

  • Spinal Adjustment – This gentle treatment will realign joints that may be out of place or not moving properly. Restoring proper spinal alignment can reduce joint dysfunction and alleviate neck pain.
  • Improved Joint Mobility – Chiropractic adjustments enhance joint mobility and flexibility. When the joints in the neck move more freely, it can reduce stiffness and improve the range of motion, reducing pain and discomfort.
  • Muscle Relaxation – Manual techniques, such as chiropractic adjustments can help relax tight muscles and reduce tension.
  • Enhanced Blood Flow and Healing – Spinal adjustments improve blood circulation. Increased blood flow promotes the natural healing process.
  • Nervous System Influence – Chiropractic adjustments can impact the nervous system. Proper spinal alignment can reduce interference with nerve function, alleviate pain, and promote optimal health and wellness.

If you are suffering from neck pain, make an appointment with one of our top-rated doctors and experience the healing power of chiropractic care.

Board Certified Acupuncture Treatments for Neck Pain

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to promote healing and relieve pain at its source.

Many people seek acupuncture as a complementary or alternative therapy for various conditions, including neck pain.

Here’s how we utilize acupuncture at ASFCA:

  • Pain Reduction – Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. By inserting needles into specific points, our board-certified acupuncturists influence the nervous system and reduce pain.
  • Muscle Relaxation – Acupuncture treatments can help relax tense muscles in the neck. We can release muscle tension and improve blood circulation by targeting specific acupuncture points.
  • Inflammation Reduction – Acupuncture is a great way to reduce inflammation in the areas surrounding the neck naturally.
  • Enhanced Relaxation and Stress Reduction – Acupuncture sessions are a relaxing experience that will reduce stress and anxiety. Stress and tension are major contributors to neck pain.

Our board-certified acupuncture treatments are great for patients of all ages; schedule your appointment now to experience the relaxing healing power of acupuncture.

Physiotherapy Sessions Offer Relief from Neck Pain 

Physical therapy is a commonly recommended and effective treatment for neck pain. A physical therapist will assess your condition and design a personalized treatment plan to address the underlying causes of your neck pain.

Here’s how ASFCA physical therapy treatments for neck pain can help maintain and prevent pain:

  • Neck Exercises – Our team of physical therapists utilizes a set of specific exercises that improve the strength, flexibility, and endurance of the neck muscles.
  • Posture Correction – Poor posture is one of the most common contributors to neck pain. Our team of experts can help you maintain good posture during daily activities and while sitting at a desk or using electronic devices.
  • Manual Therapy – Manual therapy techniques, such as joint mobilization and soft tissue manipulation, can help improve the neck joints’ mobility and reduce pain.
  • Heat and Cold Therapy – Applying heat or cold to the affected area can help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Soft Tissue Manipulation – This involves massaging and stretching the soft tissues, including muscles and connective tissues, to reduce muscle tension and improve flexibility.
  • Electric Stimulation and Cold Laser Therapy – At ASFCA, we utilize electrical stimulation and cold laser therapy to relieve pain and promote healing.
