Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain

Neck pain is a growing problem in today’s workforce. More workers spend long hours in front of the computer, with their heads and necks held in the same position for many hours during the day. This enforced lack of natural motion can lead to chronic neck pain, headache and muscle tension that can interfere with normal activities. Dr. Robert Kuskin, an experienced chiropractor in Sarasota, can help relieve your neck pain, so you can enjoy life without chronic discomfort.

What Causes Neck Pain?

The neck is a delicate structure made up of seven small individual vertebrae that can become strained or damaged by everyday activities. Vertebrae can become compressed, leading to reduced blood flow and strain on supporting muscles and tendons. In some cases, osteoarthritis, the normal wear-and-tear that occurs with aging, causes bone spurs that affect motion and contribute to discomfort. Injury to the neck from auto accidents or athletic activities can also be the cause of neck pain. Chiropractic techniques can help return the structures to normal alignment so that they can move in their intended manner. When the nerves are no longer compressed, and blood flow to the muscles returns, the structures can function normally. 

Neck Pain and Chiropractic Care

Cervical manipulation is a chiropractic technique that can be used to re-align the delicate vertebrae of the neck. We can also provide massage, rehabilitative exercises or other techniques that provide relief for neck discomfort. A few treatments can help to correct the underlying strains that cause neck pain. Then, individuals can return for periodic treatments to maintain good neck structure.
