Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Neck pain can come from several sources, including an injury, a chronic condition or disease, or even simply having poor posture. All too often, traditional medical practitioners will prescribe medications or invasive surgery to cure your neck pain. However, chiropractic care provides a safe and natural alternative. At Maple Grove Family Chiropractic in Maple Grove, MN, we provide a variety of chiropractic treatment options to leave you with long-lasting pain relief.
Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain is either acute pain or chronic pain. Acute pain usually comes on quickly and is the result of an injury. This pain could be from a strain, sprain, or tear to the soft tissues, like the tendons and muscles, or a fracture in the bones that make up the neck. Chronic pain is usually associated with ongoing medical conditions or diseases. This pain is more gradual, becoming worse with time and age. Common conditions and diseases that can lead to neck pain include arthritis, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, or osteoporosis. Further, overusing muscles and poor posture can contribute to neck pain.
Symptoms of Neck Pain
Neck pain is different for everyone, and different injuries and conditions may impact people in different ways. An acute injury can be sharp and stabbing and can be quite severe. Chronic conditions and diseases may feel dull and aching. Pain may feel localized or only felt with movement. Further, sometimes numbness and tingling accompany neck pain. This sensation can be felt in the neck and shoulders and sometimes felt in the arms and hands. A limited range of motion and stiffness in the neck can be associated with ongoing neck pain.
Chiropractic Treatment Options
Luckily, our chiropractors can offer neck pain relief. We believe that pain management can be administered by bringing the body back into alignment, ensuring the muscular and skeletal systems are in harmony. To help with pain management, our team offers a variety of treatment methods. The most common is spinal manipulation and realignment. This technique takes pressure off your body and rebalances it, which often relieves pain in the neck, back, and even extremities. Other treatments include heat therapy, massage therapy, posture screenings, or even stretching and strengthening exercises. We also offer acupuncture and electrical stimulation. Our chiropractors may prescribe just one treatment option or may combine several.
