Neck Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
There is an increasing need for educating people about proper posture and spine health.
Some studies suggest that up to 80% of people will experience some type of neck pain this year. Neck pain rarely resolves on its own and when it does, you can be sure it will return if you don’t seek proper chiropractic treatment.
Dr. Michael Irhin of Commons Chiropractic Center in Denville will dig deep to get to the root of your neck pain and develop a personalized treatment plan with your input to support long-term recovery.
Neck Pain Causes Serious Long-Term Problems
Neck pain isn’t just a mild nuisance – it’s a symptom of severe spinal damage.
Your head weighs about 10 or 11 pounds. When you tilt your head downwards to look at a phone, computer, book, or workstation, the angle created multiplies the pressure on your cervical spine anywhere from 10 to 60 pounds.
If poor posture wasn’t enough, injuries from sports, work, and car accidents can also cause a wide range of neck injuries – whether you notice pain right away or not.
Other common causes of neck pain include
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
If left untreated, conditions like text neck and whiplash can wreak havoc in the form of chronic neck pain and other conditions.
Many people don’t realize that recurring headaches and migraines are often the result of cervical spine damage, tension, pinched nerves, or weak neck muscles.
Comprehensive and All-Natural Neck Pain Treatment in Denville
Dr. Irhin of Commons Chiropractic Center in Denville will first ask questions about your symptoms and neck pain. He’ll also order x-rays so he can gain a comprehensive understanding of any subluxations in your cervical spine such as bulging discs, herniated discs, muscle tension, or soft tissue damage.
Vertebral subluxations are imbalances or vertebrae that don’t function properly due to damage or injury.
Once Dr. Irhin has found the source of your symptoms, you’ll work together to develop a custom neck pain treatment plan. Dr. Irhin always uses the gentlest treatment method possible and will never prescribe you dangerous narcotics.
Depending on your specific pain, your treatment plan may include
- Spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve range of motion and relieve pressure
- Physiotherapy to strengthen neck muscles and prevent pain from returning
The goal is to relieve your immediate pain and set you up for long-term recovery. Dr. Irhin has 20+ years of professional experience helping patients like you heal from neck pain.
