Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment in Stamford, CT

Is it hard to look over your shoulder? Is there a constant pulling or throbbing pain in your neck? Do you notice a “grinding” sound as you turn your head? Does it feel stiff or in spasm?

Your neck has to balance and support your head – the equivalent of a 10 lb. bowling ball. Forward head posture, caused by such factors as working on a computer, frequent texting, and poor sleeping habits, contributes to neck pain. Other causes include traumatic injuries, degenerative changes, and stress.

A popular response to neck pain is taking aspirin or other painkillers to cover up the problem, or treat its symptoms with muscle relaxers. But neck pain isn’t caused by a lack of aspirin or drugs! The chiropractic approach to neck pain is to locate the underlying cause and correct the problem.

Special attention is given to the structural alignment of the spine, and its affect on the nervous system. Is the proper spinal curve present? Are the nerve openings between each pair of spinal bones free and clear? Is posture good and the head balanced? Are the shoulders level?

These and other considerations are used to create a plan of specific gentle chiropractic adjustments to help improve the motion and position of spinal vertebrae… naturally.

With improved alignment and taking pressure off the nerves in the neck, pain often diminishes or totally disappears. You have other choices besides taking drugs… Chiropractic is safe, natural, gentle, and effective at locating the cause of neck pain, correcting it, and giving you relief.
