Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Neck Pain

Are you Experiencing Neck Pain?

At Chelsea Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand how neck pain can significantly impact your daily life. We’re here to help you create a tailored treatment plan to address and alleviate your neck pain so that you can regain comfort and mobility.

Causes of Neck Pain:

Neck pain can result from various factors, ranging from minor issues to more serious medical conditions. Here are some common causes of neck pain:

  • Muscle Strain: Overuse or sudden movements of the neck muscles can lead to strain, often referred to as a “stiff neck.” Poor posture, sleeping in an awkward position, or holding the neck in an uncomfortable position for extended periods can contribute to muscle strain.
  • Poor Posture: Sitting or standing with poor posture can place excessive stress on the neck muscles and spine, leading to chronic neck pain over time. (Text Neck)
  • Whiplash: Rapid back-and-forth head movement, often occurring during car accidents or sports injuries, can cause strain and damage to the neck’s soft tissues.
  • Pinched Nerve: Pressure on a nerve in the neck, often caused by herniated discs, bone spurs, or inflammation, can lead to radiating pain, tingling, or numbness that extends down the arm or into the fingers.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: As people age, the discs in the spine can degenerate, leading to chronic neck pain and reduced mobility.
  • Tension Headaches: Emotional or physical stress can lead to muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, triggering tension headaches and neck pain.
  • Injury: Falls, sports-related accidents, and other traumatic events can cause direct damage to the neck, leading to pain, discomfort and restriction.
  • Infections: In rare cases, meningitis or deep neck space infections can cause neck pain and stiffness.

The Chelsea Chiropractic & Wellness Approach

Chiropractic care is a holistic and non-surgical approach to addressing neck pain and its underlying causes. Our team of doctors and our masseur are experienced in assisting in managing neck pain and neck-related injuries by performing neck adjustments and treatments to ensure that your symptoms and conditions are managed effectively.

Personalised Assessment and Treatment

We understand that each individual’s experience with neck pain is unique. Our highly trained chiropractors begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment to understand the root cause of your discomfort. This may involve discussing your medical history and lifestyle and conducting physical examinations and diagnostic tests if necessary.

Following your assessment, our chiropractors develop a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs. This plan may include a combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, therapeutic exercises, and ergonomic recommendations. Your care will help to alleviate pain, restore proper spinal alignment and function and enhance your body’s natural healing processes.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Chiropractic care is a complementary and alternative approach to managing musculoskeletal issues, including neck pain. While its effectiveness can vary from person to person, many individuals have reported experiencing benefits from chiropractic care for neck pain. Here are some potential benefits:

  • Pain Relief: Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate neck pain by improving spinal structure and function, reducing pressure on nerves, and promoting better blood circulation. (Many patients find relief from acute and chronic neck pain after undergoing chiropractic treatment.)
  • Improved Mobility: Misalignments in the spine, known as subluxations, can restrict movement and lead to pain and dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper alignment and function, improving neck mobility and range of motion.
  • Non-surgical Approach: Chiropractic care is non-surgical and doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. This can appeal to individuals who prefer a natural and holistic approach to health.
  • Customised Treatment Plans: Chelsea Chiropractors create individualised treatment plans based on a patient’s specific condition, medical history, and goals. This personalised approach can lead to more effective outcomes.
  • Drug-Free Pain Management: Chiropractic care focuses on addressing the root cause of pain rather than relying on pain medications. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who want to avoid the potential side effects of medications or who prefer not to take painkillers.
  • Preventive Care: Regular chiropractic visits can help identify dysfunction before future episodes of neck pain and help proper spinal alignment and posture. This can be especially valuable for individuals prone to recurrent neck issues.
  • Patient Education: Chiropractors often provide education and guidance on maintaining good posture, ergonomics, exercise, and lifestyle changes that can support overall spinal health and reduce the risk of future neck pain.
  • Reduced Muscle Tension: Chiropractic adjustments can help release muscle tension in the neck and surrounding areas, relieving muscle knots and spasms contributing to neck pain.

At Chelsea Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand that you may have questions and concerns about neck adjustments, a technique commonly used in chiropractic care. We’re committed to providing accurate information and addressing any doubts you may have, whilst adapting to what you are comfortable with.

Here are some frequently asked questions about neck manipulation: 

What is a Neck Adjustment?

Neck adjustments are a chiropractic technique that involves applying controlled force to the cervical spine joints (neck) to restore proper function and mobility.

Why are neck adjustments performed?

Chiropractors often perform neck adjustments to address joint dysfunction and subluxation, causing neck pain, stiffness, reduced range of motion, and headaches. The goal is to improve function and mobility of the spine and nervous system.

What can I expect during a neck adjustment session?

A chiropractor will apply quick, controlled movements to the cervical spine during a neck adjustment. You might hear cracking or popping sounds, which are normal and caused by the release of gas bubbles from the joints. At times a gentle adjusting instrument called an activator might be used instead.

Does a Neck Adjustment Hurt?

Some individuals may experience mild discomfort during or after a neck adjustment, but it’s typically not painful. Your chiropractor will ensure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure and understand what is happening before the treatment.

At Chelsea Chiropractic & Wellness, your well-being is our top priority. If you have questions about neck adjustments or any other aspect of chiropractic care, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to provide you with the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your health.
