Many patients experience neck pain caused by various conditions. Whether acute or chronic, neck pain can prevent you from fully participating in daily life. If your pain worsens or other symptoms develop, it is essential to contact our Chillicothe clinic for professional medical help. Chiropractic care can effectively treat neck pain caused by injuries, poor posture, stress, osteoarthritis, or other health-related issues. Our chiropractic staff at Hanes Total Health Care Center offers a wide range of treatment methods to naturally alleviate your neck pain and help prevent it from reoccurring.
Neck Pain Symptoms
Symptoms of neck pain often include pain that worsens when holding your head in a specific position for extended periods. For example, neck pain occurs when driving, gardening, or working on a computer. Additional neck pain symptoms include muscle tightness, neck spasms, decreased mobility, and headaches.
When to See a Chiropractor
If your symptoms worsen or you develop other symptoms, it's essential to contact our chiropractic team right away. However, even if you don't experience immediate symptoms, a chiropractic exam after an accident can diagnose any health issues early on before symptoms life neck pain set in. Contact us for a consultation if you are experiencing:
- Severe pain
- Pain that lasts for several days without relief
- Pain that spreads down the arms and legs
- Headache, numbness, tingling, or weakness
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Chiropractic care offers non-surgical, non-invasive treatment options to help reduce neck pain and related symptoms. Our chiropractors may use various manipulation techniques to help provide effective pain relief. Techniques used may include flexion-distraction technique, instrument-assisted manipulation, specific spinal manipulation, and manual therapies. Dry needling is another technique our chiropractors may use for neck pain relief.
How Dry Needling Can Help
Dry needling is a treatment our chiropractors use to provide pain relief. Dry needling is similar to acupuncture and uses stainless steel needles inserted into the skin. This technique improves range of motion while helping treat discomfort and pain associated with neck pain or neck injury. During your first consultation, our chiropractors can determine if dry needling is a good treatment option for you.
