Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain in Alexandria, VA
Neck pain is a very common condition, but that doesn’t mean it’s normal. Patients with neck pain may experience:
- Muscle tightness and spasms in the neck
- Migraines and headaches
- Limited range of motion
- Pain that is aggravated by holding the head in the same position for extended periods of time (as with sitting at a desk using a computer)
Chiropractic treatment for chronic neck pain begins by identifying the underlying cause of your discomfort. Neck pain can be caused by:
- Car accidents
- Strains and sprains
- Too much screen time
- Improper sleep position
- Bone misalignments
- Cervical disc problems
After we understand why your neck hurts, we assess its current state. Has your neck lost part of its curve? Do we see degeneration in its discs?
The curve in your neck is important because it’s designed to position your head just above your shoulders, which distributes its weight evenly and exerts the same amount of pressure on all of the discs in the spine. If your head is moved forward, there is more pressure on the neck and upper back, which is what leads to chronic neck pain, back pain, and headaches.
At Palmercare Chiropractic, our treatment for neck pain includes spinal adjustments and at-home stretches and exercises to support better posture.
