Maybe you're experiencing acute pinching or stabbing pain when you move your neck a certain way, perhaps after an accident. Or maybe the pain has been progressively getting worse, day-by-day, to the point that nothing seems to help. If any of these describe your neck pain, the Dr. Goozdich of Tukee Lifestyle Chiropractic in Ahwatukee is ready to assist you. We have provided residents of the Foothills of Arizona with neck pain treatment for many years. Read on to learn more about what causes neck pain and how we treat it.
Causes of Neck Pain
Our chiropractor will help determine why you're experiencing pain to reduce inflammation and prevent further damage while strengthening your muscles improving your body’s natural ability to heal itself. But why does your neck hurt? The answers could be any of the following:
- Improper posture while standing, sitting, or sleeping
- Reoccurring injuries that were never treated or healed properly.
- A herniated disc or another injury to the neck that pinches nerves.
Our chiropractor will assess your condition to determine the root cause of your neck pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Treatment for Neck Pain
Treatment options recommended by Dr. Goozdich will depend on the cause, location, and severity of your neck pain. Your treatment plan may include the following:
Nutritional Advice: Nutrition is a key component of pain recovery. We focus on foods that won't irritate or prolong affected areas where the pain is concentrated while promoting muscle and nerve growth and regeneration.
Chiropractic Adjustments: Our chiropractor will relieve your neck pain by restoring your body’s natural alignment. Adjustments also encourage the body to release pain-neutralizing endorphins.
Manual Therapy: Manual therapy includes targeted treatment through the use of trigger point treatment, electrical stimulation (E-STIM), and massage therapy.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercises: Corrective exercises will target areas of neck pain, improve mobility, and strengthen areas that may have experienced atrophy due to immobility.
