What Causes Neck Pain? – Pain Care Associates

What causes neck pain in Little Rock?

In our modern and fast-paced world, there are many potential causes for neck pain, from a simple motion to a traumatic event. It may be caused by muscle strain from cradling phones or carrying a heavy bag on one shoulder, from trauma caused by sports injuries, falls, or automobile accidents, or from chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and TMJ disorders. Whatever the cause, our chiropractors and physical therapists are ready to take on your case. We know that you have a busy lifestyle, and don't have the time to be slowed down by neck pain!

Diagnosing neck pain

At Pain Care Associates, our chiropractors and physical therapists know that each patient's case is unique. We will work with you to determine the optimal treatment to help alleviate your neck pain. During your visit your chiropractor will first ask you questions about your pain, such as "When did it start?" "Have you done anything to treat it?" and "does anything cause the pain to become better or worse?" These questions are designed to help us pinpoint the causes of your pain. Your chiropractor will examine the alignment of your neck and vertebrae, paying close attention to your posture and range of motion, and note any motions or positions that may be a trigger of your neck pain.

Treating your neck pain

The chiropractors at Pain Care Associates are experienced in a wide array of techniques to help alleviate neck pain. Based on the results of the examination, your chiropractor will suggest a suite of treatments that are tailored to best treat your neck pain. These therapies include chiropractic adjustment, which can be performed either manually or using our state of the art ProAdjuster system, massage therapy, deep tissue massage, and physical therapy.

Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate the strain on your spinal cord, nerves, and surrounding muscles that may be causing your discomfort. A quick adjustment can bring your vertebrae back into their correct positions and allow your muscles to relax, alleviating pain - many times right away - and activating the body's natural healing mechanisms.

Massage therapy may sound like it's more at home in the day spa, but deep tissue massages can be an effective therapy for pain management. Deep tissue massage targets muscles that are inflamed or knotted up, using pressure and massage to relax the muscle fibers and promote blood flow to the region, speeding the body's healing process.

Physical therapy can help correct the causes of neck pain that result from poor posture, sports injuries, car accidents, and the general wear-and-tear that everyday living can have on your body.
