There are many things that can cause neck pain. Since it supports your head, it is in a precarious position and at risk for injury. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include muscle strain, worn joints, nerve compression, injury from accident and diseases (such as cancer or arthritis). While a chiropractor can help in some cases, in others you may need to visit a neck doctor or general practitioner to get a better idea of the full range of care necessary to get you back to good health.
Since there are many causes of neck pain, there are many ways to achieve neck pain relief. In many cases, our chiropractor can serve as your neck doctor. Chiropractic care for neck pain can take many forms. Gentle manipulation can include mobilization, manual traction or the more commonly known neck adjustment. Each chiropractor will have a preferred system of treating pain and may not use the same methods as another.
One common way a chiropractor helps you deal with pain is with a neck adjustment. This is a manipulation of the head and neck. This creates a “popping” sensation that many people associate with chiropractic care. It is important to realize that this type of care routine is highly technical in nature and should only be completed by chiropractors. Additionally, not all chiropractors will recommend an adjustment in all cases of neck pain. In some instances, other forms of gentle manipulation may be the preferred manner of dealing with the pain.
