Neck pain can make it uncomfortable to even sit and relax. You may experience discomfort trying to turn your head in a particular direction. And when you try to sleep at night, you might notice it's difficult, especially if you have a poor quality pillow. Fortunately, Dr. Rosalie Login and Dr. Steven McMahon of McMahon Chiropractic, serving Chelsea, NY, and the nearby region, offer treatments to assist.
While neck pain is a symptom of a condition, you may have other symptoms besides neck pain. Your pain may range from a dull pain to a sharp, shooting one. It might worsen when you hold your neck in the same position for a prolonged period, particularly, if it's a stressful one, such as leaning over an electronic device. Additionally, the pain may extend down one or both arms.
Besides pain, you may also experience spasms and muscle tightness. It could also limit your range of motion and contribute to headaches.
In addition, you could feel numbness, burning, or tingling. These both stem from damage to the nerves or something pressing on a nerve.
When you visit our Chelsea, NY, office for neck pain, one of our chiropractors will thoroughly examine you. You'll undergo a physical examination where one of our practitioners looks at your neck for swelling.
During the examination, our chiropractor will ask you to move your neck in different directions to assess your range of motion.
Part of the appointment will also consist of our practitioner gently pressing on different regions of your neck to look for tenderness.
If this isn't enough to diagnose your neck pain, a chiropractor from our practice may schedule you for imaging.
Our practitioner may recommend you undergo spinal adjustments. The pressure caused by misaligned vertebrae can cause soft tissue pain. Since this is an issue with your cervical spine, a chiropractor from our practice will gently move the vertebrae so that they line up. This may also relieve pressure on your nerves and optimize your circulation. As a result, your tissue receives the nutrients it needs for the healing process.
Other treatment options include exercise therapy, massage therapy, lifestyle advice, electrical stimulation, and more.
You don't have to bear neck pain. At McMahon Chiropractic, serving Chelsea, NY, and the nearby region, we offer natural remedies to help. We even take the initiative to make sure it's an appropriate treatment for you.
