Seeing a chiropractor can help you relieve chronic neck pain. Chiropractors focus on making sure your spine is aligned correctly and that the many nerves in your neck are working as they should.

A misalignment (or subluxation) is when one or more of the bones in your neck becomes displaced, which can put pressure on the brachial plexus (nerves to your arm and hand) and cause a variety of arm and hand symptoms including numbness and tingling, muscle weakness, and even can contribute to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). To get relief from neck pain, it’s important to work with a Chiropractor in getting to the root cause, relieve the pressure on the nerves and soft tissues, and promote healing.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Neck pain can come from a number of different sources. In many cases, it’s the result of a problem with your spine that may have been there for some time without you realizing it.

Neck pain can be caused by:

The longer neck pain and misalignment goes untreated, the more likely that you’ll begin to experience a combination of muscle spasms, tension, or stiffness. Neck pain can also lead to headaches and difficulty sleeping at night, even arm and hand symptoms.  If this sounds like something you suffer from on a regular basis, chiropractic treatment could help speed up your recovery so you can feel better in no time.

Symptoms of a misaligned or subluxated vertebra may include:

  • Neck pain that gets worse when you turn your head or look up or down
  • Stiffness in your neck
  • Tingling, numbness, burning, or weakness in one arm (usually but not always on the same side as the problem)
  • Headaches
  • Poor circulation in arm and hand with or without weakness
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Our chiropractic team in Vista will do an examination to find out where your spine is causing problems and causing neck pain. Then we’ll work with you on treatment options to get you on the path to recovery.

Stretches to Help with Chronic Neck Pain

At home, you can try to alleviate some neck pain issues by doing stretches on a regular basis. Here are some good stretches for your neck that can often help with the symptoms of discomfort. It is advised to seek an evaluation from a chiropractor or medical doctor in advance of exercising to rule out underlying neck issues that may be aggravated by exercise.

  • Neck Flexion Stretch
  • Neck Extension Stretch
  • Chin Tuck Stretch
  • Scalene Stretch
  • Upper TrapStretch
  • Sternocleidomastoid stretch
  • Pectoralis Minor stretch

Doing your own stretches does not necessarily fix the underlying problem. It’s still recommended to see Dr. Elliott to determine the underlying cause of your neck pain, make sure your spine is aligned properly, and promote proper healing.

Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain in Vista

If you’re experiencing neck pain, you need to see Dr. Elliott for an exam. Dr. Elliott will work with you on developing a treatment plan that includes stretching, strengthening exercises, and specific chiropractic adjustments to help fix the problem. This helps to restore your spine to its proper alignment so you can feel better now and in the future. Of course if you have an underlying disc injury or spinal stenosis then our Spinal Decompression (computerized traction) treatments have produced excellent results over the past 16 years of treating the Vista and surrounding communities.

Chiropractic care is different than medical treatments because it focuses on restoring normal function to your body through your spine and nervous system instead of masking or suppressing symptoms with medication. Dr. Elliott will determine the cause of you neck pain, create a time tested treatment plan to address your problem, prescribe stretches and exercises like those above, and help get things back in working order.

If you’re experiencing chronic neck pain, don’t wait another day before scheduling an appointment with our Chiropractic team.
