Neck Pain Relief

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Relief

Neck pain is one of the most debilitating musculoskeletal complaints in the world because of how much movement is required for normal activities such as turning to drive, looking overhead or looking down to read or work on our phones! Many of us have experienced neck pain or will in the future. Neck pain is attributed to various causes such as:

  • Chronic Poor Posture / “Text Neck”

  • Whiplash / Car accidents

  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Working at a desk for long periods of time

  • Straining a muscle

  • Sleeping Wrong

  • Conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, nerve entrapments, etc.

Conservative Techniques That Help with Neck Pain

Chiropractic and manual therapy are non-invasive therapies that provide pain relief, a better balance of joint mobility and stability, and improved activities of daily living. Our doctors recommend soft tissue therapies and functional rehab exercises as an adjunct to chiropractic adjustments to offer relief from neck pain.

Our most common techniques used are:

  1. Active Release Technique (ART) – ART is a highly effective method for releasing scar tissue around muscles, ligaments and nerves. Scar tissue is much like velcro and velcro makes movement hurt. ART is THE technique for releasing the velcro. Few doctors are certified, and we are part of ART's "Elite Provider Network.

  2. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization – An instrument is used to perform “cross fiber massage” over a problematic area while the patient moves to stretch, provoke or challenge the tissues.

  3. Motion Palpation Adjustments – This chiropractic technique is the state-of-the-art in assessing and adjusting the spine and extremities. Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine is part of an elite network of chiropractors certified by the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI).

  4. Functional Rehab Exercises – Our elite treatments change the way you move so you stop hurting and stop the "pattern" that made you start hurting. Stretches, that are unique to each patient, help us loosen what is tight or heal what is injured. Exercises train your brain to stabilize where stability is lost or move / sit / stand the way you were intended, so you stop the vicious cycle of causing your own pain. If you will help us by doing what we ask, we will keep you better, longer!

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain

  1. It improves range of motion! Excessive muscle tension, myofascial adhesions, and restricted joints all cause restricted movement. Chiropractic care helps free up the muscles and joint, improving range of motion and making movements feel smoother and easier.

  2. It decreases pain! When range of motion is restricted in one area of the body, other areas can become overworked to compensate or the body could be put into a stressful poor posture, which leads to inflamed and painful tissues. Chiropractic care provides mobility to the restricted joints and stabilized the overworked ones!

  3. It releases endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals in the body that promote happiness and reduce pain and anxiety.
