In some cases, the pain contributes to back pain and headaches, so it is important to handle the discomfort before it gets out of control. Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A.offers realistic solutions that help reduce pain without using harsh medications.
Causes of Neck Pain
The reasons that you experience pain in your neck depend on several factors. In general, five primary factors contribute to the pain that you experience, which include:
- Strains and sprains on the muscles
- Damage to your joints from normal wear and tear or injuries
- Herniated discs or compression in the nerves
- Injuries during an accident
- Pain from sicknesses or chronic conditions
Regardless of the underlying cause, appropriate treatment options focus on helping realign your neck and spine. It also helps address pain from whiplash or similar strains on your muscles so that you can easily move your head and neck.
Chiropractic Treatment Options
Treatment options available at our clinic help address the underlying causes of neck pain. Spinal manipulation alleviates the pressure on joints and the muscles while also reducing the way that nerves are pinched in the neck. As a result, you experience less pain after a chiropractic treatment.
Other treatment options we offer for neck pain include:
- Massage therapy, which helps with muscle strain and whiplash
- Electrical stimulation therapy, which uses electrical impulses to reduce pain and inflammation in the neck
- Laser therapy, including the use of infrared to help alleviate pain

Whether you need chiropractic treatments to straighten your spine and improve your overall health or you need therapies that help relieve pain from muscle strains, we have the tools to address your concerns and help with your goals.
Improving Mobility and Function
Chiropractic care assists with several underlying factors that contribute to neck pain. By treating the neck and spine, you reduce pain from pinched nerves, poor posture and certain types of injuries. When combined with other treatments, you treat inflammation and stiffness that limits your mobility in the neck. With an appropriate treatment plan, the mobility of your head and neck improves. Furthermore, you will notice positive changes in the symptoms associated with neck pain.
Neck pain stems from multiple factors. It can start after an injury, as part of the aging process or when you must stay in the same position for an extended period. While the underlying causes of your pain depend on the situation, chiropractic treatments help address the reasons that the pain persists. The treatments allow you to move easily and manage the pain without using medications.
