Neck pain can range in severity from slightly uncomfortable to debilitating. You may struggle to move your neck through the full range of motion. Consider visiting a chiropractor for neck pain treatment. At Dr. Haque's Chiropractic Center, serving Livermore, CA, and the nearby regions, our chiropractor provides chiropractic adjustments and other treatments to naturally and effectively eliminate your neck pain.
You could have pain that worsens when you hold your head in one place like when you work on the computer or drive. You might also experience spasms or muscle tightness. You could also notice you have trouble moving your head. Headaches could occur as well.
If you have whiplash, which is a neck injury that arises when your neck is propelled forward and backward rapidly, you might have more symptoms than just neck pain and a limited range of motion. Whiplash may lead to tenderness and pain in your shoulders and arms. You might also have fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, memory problems, depression, tinnitus, irritability, or sleep disturbances.
Neck pain could stem from poor posture. Grinding your teeth could also contribute to neck pain. Arthritis can lead to pain in your neck as well. If you sustain an injury during a car accident or other personal injury, you can develop whiplash.
At the start of your appointment, you'll need to fill out a complete medical history report. This will include information about your current health conditions and any medications you take. Our chiropractor will ask you questions about your neck pain like when it started and when your pain is most severe.
Our chiropractor will ask you to move your neck in different directions to assess your range of motion. Your chiropractor may press on different areas of your neck to determine where the pain is and if you have any tender spots. Once the source of your neck pain has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan to address it.
Our chiropractor may recommend you receive chiropractic adjustments. With chiropractic adjustments, your practitioner will move the vertebrae in your neck so they align with one another. This will result in reduced pressure on your nerves and surrounding soft tissues. Our chiropractor may also guide you through corrective exercises that enhance the benefits of chiropractic care and reduce its chances of returning. The exercises draw blood to the area to help with healing. The exercises also increase the strength and range of motion in your neck.
