Whether you sit at a desk or work outside, neck pain can impact every aspect of your life. Neck pain often resolves on its own with proper rest and stretching, but for some, the condition is chronic. Common causes of neck pain include:
Poor posture strains the muscles and tendons in your neck. If you hunch over a computer all day, drive frequently, or travel often, Dr. Arevalo can teach you techniques to reduce stress in your neck.
Sprains and strains can cause long-term damage to the tendons and muscles in your neck. Dr. Arevalo uses several chiropractic treatments to restore function to your neck’s damaged or inflamed tissues.
The discs in your cervical spine (neck) act as shock absorbers in between each vertebra. If the soft center inside the discs pushes through small cracks in the outer shell, it can irritate surrounding nerves.
Whiplash is a serious neck injury that occurs when the head whips back and forth forcefully, damaging the muscles and tendons in your neck. Car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash. Even after the soft tissues heal, you can suffer chronic neck pain.
With extensive experience in acupuncture and chiropractic care, Dr. Avelo provides comprehensive treatments for neck pain, such as:
Acupuncture is a nonsurgical treatment that involves inserting small, thin needles into specific points around the body. It may help relieve pain, relax muscle tension, and improve nerve function.
A spinal adjustment is a hands-on chiropractic treatment in which Dr. Arevalo places pressure on your spine to shift it into alignment.
Soft tissue therapy is another chiropractic hands-on approach that can improve blood circulation and promote healing in damaged tissues.
Trigger point therapy is a technique that places direct pressure on specific areas of the body to alleviate pain.
