Should You Get Chiropractic Treatment For Neck Pain?


Many people with neck pain wonder if they should seek chiropractic treatment for neck pain. There are many causes of neck pain. We all know what it’s like to have neck pain—whether it’s after a long drive, pinching the phone between our head and shoulder, star-gazing, or from talking to someone who is seated off to the side. So how do chiropractic treatments help neck pain? Let’s take a look…

When chiropractic treatment is applied to a specific bone or vertebra in the spine, it has the following effects:

  1. It restores mobility in an area with restricted movement.
  2. It stimulates the sensory “neuroreceptors” in joint capsules, which has a muscle relaxing reflex effect.
  3. It can affect surrounding neurological structures in certain parts of the spine such as the parasympathetic (cranial & sacral regions) and sympathetic (mid-back) nervous systems. This can have beneficial effects on the digestive system, cardiovascular system, and other body systems not typically thought about when seeking chiropractic care.

The joint manipulation that chiropractors do is not new. Joint manipulation can be traced back to as early as 400 BCE. The profession of chiropractic began in the later 1800s and has grown in popularity ever since. There is now an overwhelming body of evidence that supports spinal manipulation as both a safe and highly effective treatment for neck pain, back pain, headaches, and many other conditions.

It’s important to note that there are many different types of chiropractic treatment for neck pain. Some of our patients like the manual chiropractic treatment that results in a popping noise in their neck. Other patients who don’t like their neck twisted or popped get the instrument-guided treatment. Some patients need both types of treatment to get neck pain relief. If you have a preference, be sure to let us know. The technique we use is not important. The important thing is that you get neck pain relief.
