Neck Pain Treatments

Dr. Gail Hepburn and the team at Hepburn Chiropractic in Boston, MA, offer customized and effective treatment techniques to provide comprehensive and lasting relief from neck pain.

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Neck pain is more than just an irritation or an annoyance. It can be completely intrusive, interfering with all aspects of one’s life. As it often comes in conjunction with headaches – as well as shoulder and upper back pain – sufferers often find themselves desperate for relief. That relief can seem hard to come by, leaving many relying on painkillers to do the trick.

Unfortunately, medication only provides temporary relief, and the pain continues once it has worn off. Chiropractic care, however, is an alternative that offers lasting relief. Learn more about how in the guide below from Dr. Hepburn and the team at Hepburn Chiropractic in Boston, MA.

The Root of Neck Pain

Pain is not a condition itself. It’s a signal that lets you know that there is a problem. Painkillers might temporarily block those signals, but they don’t address the cause of those signals. This is why the pain returns.

Chiropractic care is a much different approach. While the goal is to rid you of your symptoms, that is accomplished by identifying and addressing the cause of the symptoms. In regards to pain in the neck, the cause is often one or a combination of the following:

  • Misalignment
  • Herniated disc
  • Tension
  • Nerve compression
  • Whiplash

Chiropractors locate the root of your pain and develop a treatment plan to address it.

What’s Included in a Treatment Plan for Pain in the Neck?

Treatment plans are customized to the needs of the individual to ensure the best combination of techniques is utilized. For example, someone suffering from an injury such as whiplash will receive a different overall plan than someone suffering from a herniated disc, even if some of the same techniques are used.

The following are some of the most common methods provided for pain in the neck:

  • Adjustments to restore alignment
  • Electrical muscle stimulation releases muscle spasms and improves blood flow
  • Therapeutic exercises to stretch out tense areas and strengthen weakened ones
  • Spinal decompression to stretch the neck and back, relieving pressure from the discs and nerves
  • Therapeutic massage to help relieve tension and restore range of motion

Don’t keep suffering from neck pain. If you live in Boston’s Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Roxbury, South End, or South Boston neighborhoods, schedule an appointment with Dr. Hepburn at Hepburn Chiropractic in Boston, MA, by calling (833) 550-0443 today.
