What is Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common medical condition characterized by discomfort or pain in the neck area, which includes the cervical spine, muscles, and surrounding structures. It can range from mild discomfort to severe, debilitating pain and can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term). Neck pain can result from various causes. The symptoms of neck pain can vary and may include stiffness, limited range of motion, headaches, radiating pain into the shoulders or arms, and sometimes numbness or tingling. The treatment for neck pain depends on its cause and severity. It may include rest, physical therapy, medications, heat or cold therapy, exercises, and in some cases, surgical intervention if conservative treatments are ineffective or if there is a structural issue that requires correction.

What are common symptoms of neck pain?

Pain in the neck or cervical spine can be dull and achy, sometimes can be a burning sensation, or there can be sharp stabbing pain as well. There can also be intense pain that radiates from the neck into the arms or even the upper back and shoulder blade region as well. Stiffness and reduced mobility in the neck can exist at the same time as pain or even separately. 

How can a chiropractor help with neck pain?

Soft tissue work and spinal manipulation are helpful for reducing most neck symptoms quickly. Rehabilitation exercises can help to keep those symptoms from coming back.
