At Brevard Chiropractic & Injury Center in Rockledge, FL, we offer various treatments to relieve your aches and help you heal. Prior to visiting us, learn more some causes of neck pain below:
Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can occur due to a variety of causes. Some of these causes include:
- Poor posture
- Auto accidents
- Sports injuries
- Herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
Treatment for Neck Pain
When you visit us, Dr. Bortz will fully assess your neck to learn more about your condition and identify the root cause of your neck. The evaluation is important, as it also helps determine the necessary treatment. For example, if you have a stiff neck due to whiplash, it can be painful to move your neck at all. Therefore, we will first use certain techniques to address the stiffness. Otherwise, treatment can be more painful than helpful. Some treatments we may recommend to help you heal include:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: Properly aligning the neck and back helps relieve muscle strain, pressure off of the discs, and compression from the nerves.
- Decompression Therapy: Decompression therapy gently stretches the spinal column, which reduces tension, pulls the discs back into place, and relieves pinched nerves.
- Massage Therapy: Therapeutic massage can effectively increase your range of motion, improve blood flow in the neck, and release endorphins.
- Corrective Exercises: Targeted exercises help stretch the neck, which strengthen the muscles for better support and alleviate your discomfort.
