Help With Neck Pain

by Dr. Eric Pirrone D.C.

Why Does Neck Pain Happen?

The most common reason’s for neck pain are accidents, bad posture and traumas, like slip and falls or sports injuries.
Auto accidents are a frequent reason for neck pain. The pain can occur immediately or sometimes manifest years or month’s later.
In an auto collision, the neck can experience what is called “whiplash”. Its a sudden motion one way and then the opposite way with considerable force.
Whiplash can cause the muscles to tighten and contract and it may also cause damage to joints, vertebral discs and ligaments.

Here are several other causes of neck pain:

  • Poor posture
  • Sprains from falls
  • Muscle strain from exercise
  • Trauma
  • Degenerative diseases

 

What Does Your Chiropractor Need to Know About Your Neck Pain?

Dr. Eric Pirrone will ask you a series of questions about your neck pain, that can help him to accurately diagnose and correct the problem.

Things like:

  • When did the neck start bothering you?
  • What makes it feel better?
  • What makes it feel worse?
  • When during your day does it bother you the most?
  • How long does it last for?

 

How Does Chiropractic Help With Neck Pain?

The most common method used by Dr. Eric Pirrone to treat neck pain is called an adjustment.
The adjustment uses accurate pressure and precise motions on the joints of the neck.
The increased movement of the spine and the muscles attached will improve mobility in the neck, reduce soreness and stiffness.
A treatment program will be created by Dr. Eric Pirrone. The program may also combine multiple type’s of care, depending on your condition.
The treatment can also include massage, mobilization, laser, tigger point therapy and/or rehabilitative exercises.
