Neck Pain

Neck Pain Relief:

Dr. T is the best! I’ve been seeing her since I was post-partum with my 2nd child 11 years ago. My neck and alignment was so badly damaged that I would end up in the ER a few times a year in so much pain that I would need hospital grade muscle relaxers. Since seeing Dr. T on a fairly consistent basis for adjustments, I’m healthy and happy to say no more ER runs!

Neck Pain Relief:

Unfortunately, neck pain is a very real problem for many— it can occur because of working at your desk all day, commuting to work for more than 30 minutes a day, pulling a muscle  when you turned too quickly, or sometimes just by sleeping with an unsupportive pillow.

And, when that pain happens,  all too often people make the decision to take pain meds to find relief.  However, medications just mask the pain.  And,  by covering it up temporarily, the actual issues causing the pain are rarely addressed.

Our health care team is experienced in offering real solutions to help end your need for pain meds.  We treat neck pain for our Sussex County, New Jersey patients using personalized and comprehensive treatment plans designed for the best possible patient outcomes. Once we perform a thorough history and assessment, our doctor will recommend treatments that can include:

Finding Relief from Neck Pain Through Chiropractic Care at Vitality Health Center

Neck pain is a prevalent complaint that can significantly impact daily life, causing discomfort, stiffness, and limited mobility. Whether it stems from poor posture, muscle tension, injury, or underlying conditions like cervical disc herniation or arthritis, neck pain can disrupt your well-being and productivity. Dr. T. Uses a combination of methods including neck adjustments. These gentle adjustments will target your cervical vertebrae to help restore range of motion and ease pain. She will identify vertebral subluxations (bones that are stuck out of place and causing nerve pressure) and work to address those areas to allow you to comfortably tilt and move your head again. At Vitality Health Center, we specialize in providing effective, non-invasive solutions for neck pain through comprehensive chiropractic care. Our approach focuses on addressing the underlying causes of neck pain and restoring function, mobility, and comfort to our patients.

Understanding Neck Pain

The neck, or cervical spine, is a complex structure consisting of seven vertebrae, intervertebral discs, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Due to its flexibility and range of motion, the neck is vulnerable to various injuries and conditions that can lead to pain and discomfort. There are many potential causes of neck pain which is why it is vital to have a proper evaluation, common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle Strain: Overuse, poor posture, and muscle tension can lead to strain and discomfort in the neck muscles.
  • Whiplash: Trauma from motor vehicle accidents or falls can cause whiplash injuries, resulting in pain and stiffness in the neck.
  • Degenerative Conditions: Conditions like cervical osteoarthritis, cervical disc herniation, and cervical spinal stenosis can cause chronic neck pain due to degeneration of the spinal structures.
  • Misalignments: Subluxations, or misalignments of the vertebrae in the neck, can irritate nerves and contribute to pain and dysfunction.
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Vertebral Subluxations
  • Neck strain/ sprain or micro-traumas caused by repetitive injury such as those contained in repeated tackling/ blocking while playing football.
  • Text Neck (Cell Phone Syndrome)— repeatedly bending neck downward while using your phone.
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Cervical spondylosis which is age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal disks in your neck. As the disks dehydrate and shrink, signs of osteoarthritis develop, including bony projections along the edges of bones (bone spurs).  It is very common and worsens with age.
  • Poor posture and/ or weakened muscles
  • Neck injuries 
  • Viral infections of the throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Improper support from pillows and mattresses
  • Ergonomically incorrect chairs, computer monitor height etc.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to managing neck pain, addressing both the symptoms and underlying issues contributing to the discomfort. Here’s how chiropractic treatments at Vitality Health Center can provide relief:

  1. Spinal Adjustments: Chiropractors use precise, gentle adjustments to realign the vertebrae in the neck, reducing nerve irritation and restoring proper joint function. This can alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall spinal health.
  2. Soft Tissue Therapy: Massage therapy, myofascial release, and other soft tissue techniques are used to reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and enhance relaxation in the neck and surrounding areas.
  3. Corrective Exercises: Targeted exercises and stretches are prescribed to strengthen the muscles supporting the neck, improve posture, and prevent future injuries.
  4. Postural Correction: Poor posture is a common contributor to neck pain. Chiropractors provide guidance on ergonomic adjustments, lifestyle modifications, and proper body mechanics to reduce strain on the neck and promote spinal alignment.
  5. Lifestyle Modifications: Lifestyle factors such as diet, hydration, and stress management can impact neck health. Chiropractors offer personalized advice on making healthy lifestyle choices that support overall well-being and reduce neck pain.
