Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain is associated with several structural or systemic problems. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strains from poor posture or carrying heavy bags
  • Slipped or herniated disc
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis, or a narrowed spine
  • TMJ or other sources of tension
  • Whiplash

When should I see a chiropractor for neck pain?

Any time you have neck pain, Dr. Carollo and Dr. Bilitsis provide comprehensive diagnostics with state-of-the-art testing equipment. After diagnosing the underlying cause of your neck pain, they can treat you when appropriate or refer you to another specialist.

If your neck pain worsens, doesn’t go away on its own, radiates down your arm, or causes headaches, you should see a doctor or chiropractor. Chiropractic care may help you recover faster, so you don’t have to continue to suffer.

Finally, you can consult with Dr. Bilitsis or Dr. Carolla any time you want to try alternative therapies before resorting to medication or surgery. Chiropractic therapies provide a non-invasive, drug-free solution for neck pain.

How do you treat neck pain?

The premier experts at Prestige Chiropractic and Rehabilitation take multiple treatment approaches, depending on the cause of your pain. Among their specialties are cervical spine adjustments, ultrasound therapy, mechanical traction, myofascial techniques, and electrical stimulation.

Spinal adjustments

Cervical spine adjustments realign the vertebrae in the neck. Putting the vertebrae back into place allows your neck to function normally again and relieves undue pressure from the surrounding nerves and muscles.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create heat. That ultrasound heat works deep into your layers of muscle tissue to increase circulation and relieve stiffness.

Electrical stimulation

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) sends electrical currents through nerve fibers to loosen neck muscles. By stimulating the nerves, the therapy also helps reduce pain in the neck.

Myofascial techniques

Similar to massage, myofascial techniques involve hands-on manipulation to target trigger points and relax the muscles. This therapy also breaks up adhesions and diminishes tightness in myofascial tissue that wraps around your neck muscles.

Mechanical traction

During mechanical traction, you lie on a table as special pulley equipment stretches your spine. By reversing the pull of gravity, traction relieves pressure on the cervical spine.
