Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment


Has an accident injury become a real “pain in the neck”? Neck pain can have a serious impact on your quality of life, affecting your ability to comfortably sit at a desk, sleep through the night, and enjoy an active lifestyle. If you need a chiropractor for neck pain in Seattle, Optimal Health Chiropractic & Massage is here to help.

Neck and Shoulder Pain Treatment Available in Edmonds.

Common Neck Injuries

The cervical spine is both strong and delicate. It’s incredibly flexible and can move in almost every direction while supporting the weight of a bowling ball at the top of its curve. However, flexibility also makes the neck vulnerable to injury, especially from accidents that involve sudden forced movements like a car accident. Some of the most common causes of neck injury or pain include:

-Whiplash
-Osteoarthritis (deterioration of the cartilage)
-Spinal stenosis (compressing of the nerve passageways)
-Degenerative disc disease
-Poor posture
-Stress or emotional tension
-Obesity
(weak core muscles can affect spinal balance)

When the cervical spine becomes misaligned or damaged from these or other causes, the surrounding muscles and soft tissues contract and tighten, causing ongoing pain. In severe cases, pain, numbness or a tingling sensation can extend into the upper back, arms and hands.

Chiropractic Treatment Options for Neck Pain in Seattle

Chiropractic care is a cost effective, drug-free, non-invasive neck pain treatment that’s safe for people of all ages, including children and the elderly. At Optimal Heath Chiropractic and Massage Clinic we utilize conservative therapies to relieve pain without the use of potentially habit-forming drugs.

After a thorough evaluation, which may include a physical examination and diagnostic tests such as x-ray, our chiropractors determine which modalities will be the most effective for your specific neck or shoulder pain problems. Manual adjustments are frequently indicated to correct any misalignment of the cervical spine. When proper spinal alignment is restored, pain and inflammation naturally decrease and healing—not just pain management—can begin.

In addition to manipulations, corrective exercises, massage therapy and lifestyle changes may be needed to support complete wellness. Even if you’ve suffered with chronic neck pain for years or have been told that drug therapy is the only option to relive your pain, don’t give up. At Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage to the goals of our three-pronged approach are to first, reduce the pain you experience on a daily basis, second, to begin the healing process and third, to prevent future injury.
