What Does Your Neck Pain Feel Like?

Though it’s all a pain in the neck, there are several ways to characterize neck pain. Is it chronic neck pain or acute pain, such as a simple muscle strain from sleeping awkwardly on your neck?

Knowing how to describe your neck pain is important so your chiropractor can help discover and remedy the root cause and provide you with the most effective chiropractic care. 

Neck area pain is often described as— 

  • Acute or chronic: Is your neck pain a recent experience, or have you been feeling it for a long time?
  • Consistent or intermittent: Are you always in pain, or does the pain come and go?
  • Localized or radiating: Does the pain happen in one small area, or does it radiate out to a different location in the body?
  • Severe or mild: Would you describe your pain as severe or mild?
  • Sharp or dull: Does the pain feel sharp and sudden or dull and achy?

Why Is Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Important?

The neck is a vital area that contains many muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, veins, and arteries. It plays an important role in helping you maintain balance and posture.

Chiropractors are uniquely suited to identify the cause of your neck pain and use various treatment methods such as spinal manipulations, massages, and other therapies to help deliver relief and treat the root cause(s) of your neck pain.  

Dr. Monte Venis will thoroughly assess your neck pain and develop a unique and personalized chiropractic care treatment plan involving various chiropractic techniques and additional forms of treatment to help reduce inflammation in the injured areas. 

What Causes Neck Pain?

There are many potential causes for neck pain—from simply sleeping in an uncomfortable position to genetic musculoskeletal disorders, overuse injuries, acute trauma, or degenerative musculoskeletal conditions. Here are some of the most common causes of neck pain.

  • Joint arthritis
  • Disc degeneration and nerve compression (degenerative disc disease)
  • Narrowing of the spinal cord (spinal stenosis)
  • Inflammation of the spinal joints and spinal muscles
  • Repetitive strain
  • Accident, injury, or trauma (exercise or accident related—like car accidents or work-related accidents)
  • Bone diseases, such as cervical spondylosis, herniated disc, osteoarthritis, or tumors
  • Poor posture

Our Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Methods

Diversified Technique (Hands-On Spinal Manipulation)

The diversified technique is also known as hands-on spinal manipulation. This is what most people think of when they imagine chiropractic treatment. The diversified technique involves high-intensity, low-amplitude thrusts to the affected joint. 

Hands-on spinal manipulation helps relieve tension and stress in the joint and brings your bones, tendons, and ligaments back into alignment to restore range of motion and relieve pain. 

Activator Instrument Technique

Activator instrument technique—Dr. Venis uses a small, handheld device called the Activator instrument technique for certain patient conditions. The Activator instrument applies gentle pressure to the spinal vertebrae, improving vertebral spinal alignment to help relieve neck pain and improve spinal function.

Chiropractic Massage Therapy

Dr. Venis offers two types of massage therapy—trigger point therapy and myofascial release.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are areas of tight muscle fibers that will be painful when pressure is applied.  They are caused from overuse of said muscle or traumatic injury and can cause sharp spasms, dull aches, tightness, and other painful symptoms. Trigger points can form in your neck, shoulders, back, buttocks, arms, and legs. 

Trigger point therapy targets trigger points or painful areas of tight muscle tissue. Trigger point therapy can involve any of the following:

  • Trigger point massage
  • Anti-inflammatory cream
  • Heat or cold therapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Chiropractic spinal manipulation

Myofascial Release

Myofascial tissues surround and support the muscles in the body—think of it like a thin, protective layer of tissue that encases your musculature. When myofascial tissue becomes tight due to injury, chronic pain, repetitive movement, or other factors, you can experience deep, persistent muscle pain or stiffness. You can also experience loss of range of motion.

Dr. Venis will examine the muscles to identify areas where your myofascial tissue is tight or inflamed. Various therapies can be recommended, including massage, to release myofascial tightness and inflammation.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

During electrical muscle stimulation treatment, Dr. Venis uses mild electrical impulses delivered directly into the problem area to relieve pain and muscle spasms.
