Neck Pain


Overview of Neck Pain

Although neck pain can be caused by injury, such as ‘whiplash’ injuries, it is often caused by the cumulative effect of improper sitting posture, reading in bed, poor work habits, stomach sleeping, previous injury and falls, stress, lack of proper exercise and other lifestyle-related factors. All of these factors cause misalignments in the spine, muscular adhesions and eventually pain. In fact, neck pain is one of the single most common causes of disability worldwide.  Neck pain can have a wide range of causes and symptoms, from localized pain to pain that radiates down the back, shoulders, or hands and fingers.

Treatment of Neck Pain

Neck pain is not always easy to fix!  Most cases have developed over time and require more than just a “quick fix.” Here at Discover Soft Tissue and Spine we help patients who are suffering from neck pain without the use of anti-inflammatory medicine, muscle relaxers or pain killing drugs. We use complete functional movement screenings of the neck so we can narrow down the exact problem and tissue(s) that need to be fixed. We utilize  manual soft tissue treatments, spinal manipulation, exercises and stretches to work on relieving pain and correcting complications associated with neck and upper back pain.  A better diagnosis in our office, means better treatment, and faster results for you!
