Auto accidents, repetitive strain injuries, and staring at smartphones or computers for a long time can put a strain on the neck, causing misalignment. Once the neck pain starts, it can be challenging to resolve without proper treatment. At Dr. Walter E. Mendoza Chiropractor P.C. in Freeport, our team can help you get the relief you seek with gentle and effective chiropractic techniques.

What Is Neck Pain?

The neck, also known as the cervical spine, has multiple ligaments, tendons, and muscles that work with each other to help you move. When these soft tissues get irritated or inflamed, you can feel sensations like sharp pain, stiffness, tenderness, soreness, and pain that radiates around your neck and upper body. You may also have limited motion of your neck. If your neck pain is persistent, severe, or accompanied by other symptoms like numbness and headaches, it is time to see us for chiropractic treatment.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

With more people working from home, neck pain is on the rise. Most people ignore their posture in the comfort of their own space. The act of looking down at a smartphone also puts pressure on the soft tissues and neck vertebrae. Whiplash from a car accident is another cause of neck pain. Repetitive motions that result in the overuse of the neck muscles can create a stiff neck. Another cause of neck pain is due to pinched or trapped nerves. A trapped nerve can make it difficult to move your head in specific directions because of the pain and irritation it causes.

How A Chiropractor Can Help

Chiropractic care for neck pain involves using gentle adjustments and stretches to release trapped nerves, loosen stiff muscles, and reduce restrictions caused by tight tendons and ligaments in the neck. During treatment, our chiropractor treats the source of your pain and looks for other areas that may have been affected by neck pain. Releasing all of the impacted tissue through chiropractic treatment effectively reduces or eliminates the dependency on painkillers for relief. Seeking treatment early on prevents existing conditions from worsening.
