Neck Pain Relief in Oak Creek

person with neck painNeck pain is a widespread complaint that many individuals experience. With the rise in sedentary lifestyles and increased screen time, it’s no surprise that more people are seeking solutions for their neck discomfort.

At Evolved Chiropractic, we understand the impact this can have on your quality of life. Our compassionate care offers practical strategies to diagnose, address, and correct neck discomfort, providing lasting relief and improved mobility.

Understanding the Problem

Dr. Jon prioritizes your safety and well-being. Before performing any adjustments, he takes the time to gather information about your medical history, including surgeries or pathologies that may influence our approach. If there are any contraindications, we can modify the adjustment to use a lighter force technique that is safe and effective for you.

It’s crucial to differentiate between minor discomfort and potentially severe underlying conditions. In most cases, this type of discomfort is not a symptom of a severe problem. However, if you experience additional symptoms, such as numbness or weakness in your arms or shooting pain in your shoulder or arm, it’s essential to seek medical attention immediately.

Symptoms and Common Causes

The symptoms associated with this issue can vary from person to person. Here are some common signs and symptoms you may experience muscle tightness and spasms, decreased ability to move your head, and headaches.

Several factors may contribute to discomfort in the neck area. By understanding these causes, we can better address and alleviate the problem. Here are some of the most common reasons:

  • Muscle strains: maintaining poor posture for extended periods or engaging in activities that strain the neck muscles, such as reading in bed without proper support, may act as triggers.
  • Worn joints: as we age, the joints in our neck naturally wear down. Osteoarthritis can cause deterioration of the cushions (cartilage) between the vertebrae, leading to bone spurs and restricted motion, and discomfort.
  • Nerve compression: herniated discs or bone spurs in the cervical vertebrae put pressure on the nerves branching out from the spinal cord, causing discomfort.
  • Injuries: auto collisions, particularly rear-end accidents, often lead to whiplash injuries. This type of injury occurs when the head is jerked backward and then forward, straining the soft tissues of the neck.
  • Tech Neck: with the increase in the use of computers, laptops, tablets, and cellphones, many people, especially our youth, have developed forward head posture, which puts additional strain on the neck.

Techniques and Therapies

Our practice uses the Diversified Technique when working with the cervical spine, as it has proven to be highly successful in addressing issues in this area. This targeted care helps realign the vertebrae, reduce pressure on nerves, and promote proper spinal function.

Some patients may feel nervous or apprehensive about chiropractic adjustments. Our caring doctor patiently explains the process and what to expect. Suppose a patient is not ready for a Diversified, high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) adjustment. In that case, we offer alternative techniques using lighter tonal force adjustments that do not involve any “cracks” or “pops.”

Patients will experience relief based on their age and the severity of their condition. While some may notice improvement after just one session, others may require multiple visits before experiencing significant relief. Everyone responds differently, and our personalized plans cater to your unique needs and body’s response.

Neck pain can be debilitating and impact various aspects of your life. Our team approach provides hope and relief with tailored care plans that address the root causes of your discomfort, allowing you to regain mobility and enjoy life to the fullest.
