What are common reasons for neck pain?

Neck pain can stem from various factors, including poor posture, injury, or underlying medical conditions. Some common specific culprits behind neck discomfort include: 

  • Sitting for long periods
  • Hunching over electronic devices
  • Auto accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Sleeping in an awkward position

The Atkins Chiropractic team finds the root cause of the neck pain so they can customize the right treatment for you.

What types of chiropractic treatment can help neck pain?

Chiropractic care offers non-invasive and drug-free solutions to ease neck pain. The Atkins Chiropractic team is board-certified in a special approach called Advanced Orthogonal. It focuses on gentle and painless neck adjustments without cracking, popping, or twisting. 

The team uses X-rays to pinpoint the areas that need adjustment. Then, they use a state-of-the-art instrument to deliver percussion sound waves. 

This shifts the Atlas bone at the top of your spine into the right position and restores normal nerve signaling and flexibility. Ultimately, this helps improve spinal alignment, ease pain, and improve your life quality. 

The team provides other effective treatments, like therapeutic massage and cold laser therapy. They can work alongside adjustments to help you recover faster.

What lifestyle modifications can help relieve neck pain?

Lifestyle modifications can work along with chiropractic care to relieve and prevent neck pain. Some habits that can help include: 

Corrective exercises

The team prescribes special exercises and stretches. This helps strengthen the muscles supporting the neck and improve flexibility. These exercises help prevent future injuries and promote long-term neck health.

Ergonomic adjustments

Choosing an ergonomically designed chair, desk, and other equipment at work can help support your neck and spine properly and prevent pain. 

Regular movement

Frequent stretching breaks throughout the day can help prevent neck pain. These short stretching sessions can help you avoid stiffness and tension buildup.

Stress management

Stress-reducing techniques like deep breathing, meditation, or yoga can ease neck muscle tension and promote relaxation.

Healthy sleep habits

A supportive pillow and mattress can help you maintain ideal spinal alignment and keep neck pain at bay long term.
