Neck Pain Relief Q & A

What is neck pain?

 

Your neck is made up of many bones, ligaments, and muscles that support your head and provide a range of movement. Any injuries, inflammation, or other abnormalities in these tissues can lead to neck pain and stiffness.

Common symptoms of neck pain include:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle tightness
  • Decreased range of motion

Your neck pain may become worse after holding your head in the same position for long periods of time, such as while working at a computer.

What causes neck pain?

Your neck is vulnerable to a host of injuries and conditions that can cause pain and reduce your range of motion. Dr. Frank, Dr. Sarah, and the team at Grayhawk Family Chiropractic treat a full spectrum of neck conditions, including:

  • Injuries such as whiplash
  • Diseases like arthritis
  • Muscle strains
  • Nerve compression

Even minor things such as gritting your teeth or sleeping on the wrong pillow can put stress on the structures of your neck and cause pain. If you experience long-lasting neck pain and are unsure of the cause, Dr. Frank or Dr. Sarah can identify the problem and set you on the path to relief.

How is neck pain treated?

Both Dr. Frank and Dr. Sarah are highly trained in numerous chiropractic methods that effectively manage neck pain. They begin with an initial consultation, during which Dr. Frank or Dr. Sarah thoroughly evaluates your condition and medical history.

Depending on your situation, they may refer you to get an X-ray at nearby Scottsdale Medical Imaging to confirm a diagnosis. Then, they develop a personalized treatment plan to relieve your neck pain. This may include:

  • Diversified manual chiropractic adjustments
  • Gentle non-force techniques
  • The Graston Technique®

They also offer cupping therapy, which involves applying suction to the musculature of your neck, shoulders, and head. Cupping therapy is proven effective at treating chronic neck and shoulder pain.

Aside from manual methods, they also offer passive physical therapies for additional pain relief, including:

  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
