When your neck hurts, it can be the result of many different things. A chiropractic adjustment can help to get the vertebrae in your neck back into alignment. This allows the messages from the brain to get through easily. When the neck is out of alignment, it puts stress on the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the neck. This can result in soft tissue pain.
When the soft tissues in and near your neck are sore, chiropractic massage can help to get them to relax. Deep tissue massage gets deep into the knots and tension you are feeling. The soreness may extend into your shoulders and upper back in addition to your neck, depending on what caused the neck pain.
Interferential Current Therapy
Electric current is a known therapy for muscle and other soft tissue pain. Interferential is a higher level of electrical stimulation therapy. It stimulates the tissue to accelerate the healing process as well as relieves pain.
Exercise, especially stretching, can help to restore your range of motion as well as allow your body to be restored after a painful accident or condition. Your chiropractor will give you a personalized set of exercises to treat your individual condition. This allows you to work on your pain and stiffness while you are at home.
Ultrasound is a well-known treatment option for pain in joints and soft tissues. It uses sound waves to heat and vibrate the tissues and to promote healing at a cellular level. It reduces inflammation and stimulates your endorphins, which are natural; pain relievers.
