What is neck pain?
Neck pain is a common health concern that can cause a range of symptoms. In addition to muscle soreness in your neck, you may also experience:
- Tingling in your arms or hands
- Muscle spasms
- Limited range of motion in your neck
In most cases, neck pain isn’t a serious health issue. However, the pain you experience can keep you from doing the things you enjoy. Dr. Weinberg specializes in the management of neck pain and can develop a plan that not only relieves your pain, but also may help prevent a recurrence.
What causes neck pain?
Your neck pain may simply be from spending too much time with your head bent and your shoulders scrunched as you work diligently at your computer, leading to muscle strain and soreness. However, you can also develop neck pain after an auto accident or sports injury. Neck pain can also result from an underlying degenerative condition, such as arthritis or cervical stenosis, which is a condition that causes a narrowing of your spinal canal.
When should I seek help for my neck pain?
Dr. Weinberg recommends you come to the office for an evaluation if your neck pain is keeping you from your daily activities, whether your pain is acute or chronic. He also recommends you come in for care if you’re experiencing neck pain following an auto accident. Rear-end auto accidents cause a jerking motion of your head that can lead to a severe strain of the soft tissue in your neck.
What can I expect during my neck pain treatment?
Dr. Weinberg takes a conservative approach to chiropractic care. His goal is to provide the relief you seek and improve your overall health and quality of life.
Before he recommends any treatment, he conducts a comprehensive examination to assess your overall health and needs. Based on the information gathered during your examination, Dr. Weinberg develops your treatment plan, which may include:
- Traditional chiropractic therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Massage therapy
- Active release technique (ART) muscle work
Dr. Weinberg is board certified in physical therapy modalities and may also incorporate traction, electrotherapy, or ultrasound into your treatment plan. You may also benefit from a rehabilitation program to get relief from your neck pain.
