Many patients develop neck pain after suffering an injury to some part of their neck. For example, you may have neck pain after a whiplash injury or another type of trauma. Other causes of neck pain include:
It’s also possible to develop neck pain because of a combination of different problems.
The chiropractors at Gallagher Chiropractic & Medical Wellness approach the treatment of neck pain holistically. Rather than attempting to cover up symptoms, they look for the underlying cause of your pain so you can get relief and experience fewer problems in the future.
When you come to Gallagher Chiropractic & Medical Wellness with neck pain, our chiropractors begin by performing a thorough physical exam, review of your medical history, and evaluation of your lifestyle to identify all of the factors that cause your neck pain. After isolating these factors, we develop a customized treatment plan that addresses each one.
In most cases, our chiropractors design treatment plans that include a combination of different treatment options. Some of the options we may recommend to help with neck pain include:
Some patients may also benefit from ultrasound therapy and Interferential electrical muscle stimulation.
If we determine that your lifestyle played a role in the development of your pain, we may recommend certain lifestyle changes as well.
Conventional medicine usually treats neck pain with medication, surgery, and other treatments that pose risks to your health and may cause uncomfortable side effects. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, is minimally invasive and generally safe. In addition, studies have shown that chiropractic care effectively relieves pain for many patients.
