Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment in Omaha
At Chiropractic Health Clinic, we know how debilitating neck pain can be. Whether your neck pain is mild or severe, sudden or gradual, it’s always a sign that your body needs help to heal. Our family of Omaha chiropractors is committed to finding and eliminating the source of your symptoms.
Different Types of Neck Pain
Neck pain is a broad term for many different symptoms, and it may also be accompanied by pain or mobility problems elsewhere in the body. Your Omaha chiropractor needs to know as much as possible about your neck pain symptoms so that we can figure out what’s causing it instead of simply covering it up. Let us know if your neck pain is accompanied by headaches, upper back pain, lower back pain, or arm pain. We also want to know if your pain is dull or sharp, constant or periodic, and how long you’ve been suffering.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Your symptoms and spinal exam will help your chiropractor figure out the source of your neck pain. It’s important to know what’s causing your pain because our treatment methods are also designed to prevent the problem from occurring again.
Here are some of the most common causes of neck pain in Omaha:
Degenerative Disorders – Osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease are common causes of neck pain among older patients because as spinal discs begin to deteriorate, there’s extra pressure on the sensitive nerves in your neck. We offer neck pain relief by slowing down degeneration and stimulating the regrowth, or regeneration, of new cells in your upper spine.
Poor Posture – Over time, hunching over or tensing up will put extra pressure on your spine and neck muscles, forcing them to support more weight than they can handle. If you have chronic neck pain and your daily routine involves heavy lifting or long periods of sitting, you may have repetitive trauma that’s just as painful as a sudden injury. If you have “text neck” or stress-related neck pain, your chiropractor will also help you adjust your lifestyle to prevent further neck pain.
Auto Accident Injuries – Whiplash occurs when your head is rapidly jolted backward and forwards before your neck can anticipate this force. Even the most minor rear-end collisions may result in lingering neck pain because of tears or inflammation in the neck tissue.
Chiropractic Care Techniques
Our Omaha chiropractors offer a wide range of chiropractic care options and complementary techniques to resolve these issues for natural, lasting neck pain relief:
Chiropractic Adjustments—With extensive training in several chiropractic care techniques including Gonstead, Toggle, Distraction, Palmer Package and Thompson techniques, our chiropractors in Omaha will fully evaluate your condition and apply the combination of adjustment techniques that will most effectively and gently realign the vertebrae in your spine to release pinched nerves.
Physiotherapy and Therapeutic Exercise—Once your spine is realigned, tending to soft tissue strains and injuries is important. Your muscles, tendons, and ligaments need to heal so they can properly support correct posture to prevent the pain from returning. Physiotherapy techniques help to relieve inflammation, stiffness, and neck pain while therapeutic exercises help strengthen the muscles.
Cold Laser Therapy—This revolutionary therapy once reserved for Olympic athletes is now helping to reduce tissue inflammation, accelerate healing, and relieve neck pain in our Omaha chiropractic care office too!
Spinal Decompression—For neck pain stemming from herniated, bulging or degenerative discs, gentle, non-invasive spinal decompression can actually help discs heal, restoring them to a healthy shape, which removes pressure from painful pinched nerves.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Relief
Chiropractic care is a wellness approach that takes your whole body into consideration. Because your neck connects your head to the rest of your spine and body, it’s especially important to take a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment, and we do just that at Chiropractic Health Clinic. Our Omaha chiropractors help correct the spinal imbalances, stress, and inflammation that cause neck pain.
