Neck Pain Q & A

What Treatments Are Available For Neck Pain?

Just as there are many different causes of neck pain, there are also a number of different neck pain relief treatments available. Depending on the cause of a patient’s neck pain, they may benefit from:

  • Numbing neck muscles with cold packs or relaxing them with heat packs

  • Managing the pain with over-the-counter or prescription medication

  • Relaxing neck muscles with massage therapy

  • Adjusting misalignments in the spine with chiropractic adjustments

  • Correcting the patient’s posture

In rare cases, surgery is necessary. Surgery is usually reserved as a final option, though.

Who Offers Neck Pain Relief?

Both medical doctors and chiropractors provide neck pain relief treatments for patients who have neck pain. Patients who want to pursue non-invasive and natural treatments may want to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors specialize in adjustments and other non-invasive procedures. Their treatments can be used in conjunction with the neck pain relief treatments provided by a medical doctor or without additional treatments from a medical doctor.

What Is a Neck Pain Relief Appointment Like?

Seeing a chiropractor for a neck pain relief treatment is a lot like seeing any other healthcare provider. Appointments typically begin with paperwork and some other preliminary items. After these are taken care of, the chiropractor will review the patient's symptoms with them and perform an exam. They’ll then recommend any treatments that they think will provide relief. Sometimes these treatments are performed during the same appointment. Other times they are scheduled for a different visit.
