Neck Pain Treatment From Our Stillwater Chiropractor
At Northland Chiropractic Clinic, we take great pride in being the area's go-to Stillwater chiropractor. Our very own Dr. Oscarson and Dr. Rachel serve the areas of Oak Park Heights, Bayport, St. Croix, and many more! One of the more common reasons patients come into our office is due to neck pain. If you've been experiencing ongoing neck pain that's interfering with your life, we may be able to help.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
There are many potential causes of neck pain, with auto accidents being among the most common. Specifically, an auto accident can result in a whiplash injury, which occurs when the tendons, muscles, and ligaments around the upper (cervical) spine are damaged. Fortunately, our auto accident injury chiropractor in Stillwater can help relief neck pain associated with whiplash.
In addition to car accidents, neck pain can also be caused by poor posture in your everyday life. This is especially common among those who work desk jobs without the proper ergonomics. In some cases, an ergonomic desk chair in addition to some lifestyle changes is all that is needed to help you find relief.
We're also beginning to see "text neck" as a more frequent cause of neck pain in our office. This condition occurs when your neck is strained due to being hunched over, such as while looking down at your smart phone or tablet screen. Over time, the strain can cause damage to the muscles and tendons around the neck area.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Your specific treatment will depend on the cause of your neck pain, but chiropractic care can help you find relief without the need for prescription drugs or invasive procedures. Some of the treatment methods we provide in our office include:
- massage therapy
- chiropractic/spinal adjustment
- spinal decompression
