Neck pain has many causes. Some are associated with other issues, but no matter what the cause, neck pain can become chronic and it can be disruptive to your life. Residents of Fort Lee, NJ, count on Dr. Lawrence Altman to provide the chiropractic treatments and therapy to provide relief. 

Neck pain causes

Neck pain is often caused by a misalignment of the vertebrae in the neck. This can be the result of whiplash from an auto or sports accident. Other causes of neck pain include sleeping in the wrong position, poor posture, spinal stenosis, and disc problems. 

Chiropractic treatments for neck pain

Chiropractic adjustment can help with neck pain by getting the vertebrae in the neck back into alignment. When the vertebrae in the neck are out of alignment, they can put stress on the soft tissues in the neck and the nerves may be pinched. Getting the spinal column back into alignment helps to improve overall health and well-being.

Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to vibrate and heat both soft tissue and joints. It not only reduces inflammation and pain, but it promotes healing at the cellular level. Even though it vibrates the tissues, you will likely feel no heat at all. 

Electrical stimulation therapy uses low-level electric current to stimulate the muscles. This works for muscular issues in the neck by causing the muscles to contract. After they contract for a while, they get tired and relax, which can improve the level of pain. 

Therapeutic exercise helps to maintain the improvements that have been made in the long run. The personalized exercise program will include stretching exercises and strengthening exercises to ensure your spinal column has more support. 

Lifestyle suggestions may also be made to help you resolve some of the issues that may be causing your neck pain. You may need to adopt a more ergonomic work environment. Your chair and desk need to be correctly aligned and not putting the phone on your shoulder or looking down at it is also helpful. How you sleep may also contribute to your neck pain. By making a few small changes, you can have good results.
