Chiropractic care is often synonymous with back pain due to the treatment of the spine, but did you know that a chiropractor can also treat neck pain through realignment and other chiropractic techniques? As your spine connects your entire body and is responsible for your nervous system, chiropractic care means treatment for any issues you’re experiencing anywhere in the body, including neck pain.
If you’re new to chiropractic treatment or wondering how your neck pain can be treated by a professional, we can help explain.
What Causes Neck Pain?
There may be many reasons you are suffering from neck pain, and your chiropractic advisor will investigate these reasons before treatment commences. The causes of neck pain may not be immediately obvious to you. A common cause of neck pain is a pinched nerve elsewhere in the body: the spine. This pinched nerve can result in numbness or pain radiating through your neck, as well as causing other discomforts such as headaches.
This is why chiropractic care is ideal for neck pain: to realign the spine, relieve the tension on any trapped nerve, and find relief for your neck.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
A professional walk-in chiropractor, like with our team at Miami Beach chiropractor SnapCrack, will consult with you regarding your neck issues and carry out a physical exam to find the source of the pain. You will then have neck adjustment options presented to you to choose your preferred level of adjustment treatment option (such as thrust intensity and manipulation technique).
This will serve to have your spine realigned and in its healthiest condition, which in turn will find the rest of your body and joints in better condition, too. Any excess pressure in the spine, causing neck aches or discomfort will be relieved from spinal manipulation.
It’s also important to note that chiropractors don’t have to touch a client’s neck to treat neck pain. If a client’s preference is for their neck not to be touched, that is not a problem. Neck pain can be treated by other chiropractic manipulations, and not by manipulating or handling the neck themselves. Your treatment plan needs to be what will help you and no one else.
How to Prevent Pain in Future
There are many lifestyle scenarios that might prompt pain regularly. This could be a particular job that finds you sat at a desk with excess pressure on your spine or perhaps bad posture, which can promote neck pain or discomfort in the future.
As much as we love treating our patients, we prefer they don’t require constant visitation because of returning pain. You want to live a life free of pain, and so we try to make the possible for you; not just by providing excellent chiropractic care, but also long term solutions. Therefore, there are a few things you can do to give yourself the best chance for avoiding persistent neck pain and having a full range of motion again:
- Seek regular spinal adjustment to keep your spine in its best condition and avoid ongoing pain

- Regularly stretch out your back, such as with exercises
By carrying out these above, you can ensure that the adjustments that you receive from us will offer long term results.
