Neck pain is nearly impossible to ignore. If any kind of pain is interfering with your day-to-day tasks, come in for a complimentary consultation to find out more about the safe, effective, drug-free pain relief treatments available to you at our medical center.
For decades, we have been helping patients recover from neck pain with tried-and-true treatments, and now, we offer the most advanced pain relief treatments as well.
Neck Pain Relief
Our treatments offer more than just temporary pain relief; they promote natural healing and recovery from whatever condition is causing the pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are often just as useful for certain types of neck pain. The injection is prepared in the center during your appointment, using a small sample of your own blood. The platelets in our blood contain growth factors that are important to the body’s natural healing processes. When your platelets are concentrated and injected directly into the injured tissues of your neck, they provide a powerful stimulus that enhances the healing process.
Spinal Decompression and Chiropractic Care
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that is highly effective for chronic pain in the neck. A decompression table is used to gently stretch the spine, relieving pressure on the cervical discs and allowing them to receive more oxygen. Treatment can provide relief from a pinched nerve in the neck, and various other conditions causing neck pain, headaches, and migraines.
A manual chiropractic adjustment to correct misaligned vertebrae is sometimes all that’s needed to relieve neck pain. Our doctor will examine your spine to identify any problems, and if you’re misaligned, a gentle technique is used to restore balance.
Trigger Point Injections
If your pain feels like a “knot” in the muscle, a trigger point injection may be the solution. Treatment involves a precision injection directly into the muscle’s trigger point. The all-natural injection is made of an anti-inflammatory agent derived from the pitcher plant. This substance—called sarapin—relaxes the muscle and relieves pain to allow time for it to heal.
Neck Pain Causes
Many people guess that car accidents are the most common cause of neck pain. While certainly prevalent, car accidents are not responsible for most pain. The modern American lifestyle is hard on our necks. Many of us spend a good portion of the day sitting at a desk staring at a computer, then spend more time at home in front of the TV or computer. Nature did not intend for us to remain in these positions for any significant amount of time, and it is taking a toll on our necks and our overall health.
Whether your sore neck is a result of an accident or you think it may be related to your lifestyle, our doctors have the solution that’s right for you. Our doctors will design a fully customized care plan to address the root cause of your pain and treat it so that it never returns.
