Neck Pain Q&A

What causes neck pain?

You might have neck pain from poor posture or sitting in front of a computer. Other times, neck pain comes from an injury or medical condition. No matter the cause, one thing’s for certain, you just want relief. Your neck pain might be caused by:

  • Muscle strain
  • Degeneration in your bones or joints
  • Trauma or injury
  • Repetitive stress
  • Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Incorrect posture
  • Disc issues

Will chiropractic adjustments improve my neck pain?

Chiropractic adjustments can lessen and resolve neck pain, especially if the small bones in your neck are not moving correctly. During your adjustment, Dr. Payne will use therapeutic manipulation to deliver restore motion to specific joints in your neck, shoulders and spine. If you have a whiplash type injury causing your neck pain, Dr. Payne will use milder non-force techniques to help realign your neck.

Is chiropractic care safe for neck pain?

Millions of Americans seek chiropractic care for neck and back pain. The spinal manipulation that Dr. Payne delivers is designed to relieve your pain by adjusting the discs in your neck to correct pinching and misalignment. While you may feel a little sore after your visits, chiropractic care is generally considered safe, and Dr. Payne ensures that he thoroughly understands your problem areas before he starts treatment.

Are chiropractic adjustments the only treatment?

No. Your chiropractic visits aren’t all about adjustments. You may also get a variety of soft tissue and rehabilitative treatments. Dr. Payne can add electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or corrective therapy to your treatment plan, so any damaged tendons, muscles, or ligaments in your neck can begin to heal. These treatments help decrease inflammation, which lessens pain and allows for healing.

Since ProForm Clinics provides everything you need to recover, your dedicated team will likely talk with you about your diet. Finding foods that keep inflammation at bay is a key part of your recovery.

If you need help with weight loss, the ProForm Clinics Wellness Academy program can help you get your weight back on track. When you feel healthier, you’ll walk with your head up and have better posture that strengthens your muscles to keep neck pain at bay.

Can I exercise when I have neck pain?

Dr. Payne’s philosophy is to keep his patients doing as much activity as possibly during treatment. He will make exercise recommendations after your exam. He’ll get to the root of your neck pain, and make sure the exercises you’re doing won’t make it worse. Dr. Payne can teach you exercises to do at home to build up your neck strength and improve your neck posture and mobility.
