Neck Pain Treatment with our Houma-Thibodaux Chiropractor

Man sitting at his desk at work with neck pain

The neck is made up of the upper vertebrae of the spine from the upper back to the skull. The bones, muscles and ligaments of the neck allow for motion and also support the head. The cervical discs of the upper vertebrae help to absorb shock between the bones.

When the neck suffers any inflammation, injury or other issues, this can, in turn, lead to pain and stiffness in the neck. Fortunately, chiropractic neck pain treatment along with neck pain relief exercises can bring rapid neck pain relief.

Neck stiffness and pain can affect just about anyone occasionally. Some of the main causes of neck pain include:

  • Poor posture
  • Overuse
  • A fall
  • Sports injury
  • Sitting at a desk for too long
  • “Text neck” from heavy smartphone use
  • Whiplash or other auto accident injury   
  • Poor ergonomics
  • Stress/muscle tension
  • Sleeping in an awkward position

In many cases, neck pain will resolve on its own through avoiding strenuous activities, correcting posture and getting enough rest. However, in some cases neck pain can be persistent and chronic. In these cases, chiropractic care can help to treat neck pain at its root and pave the way for deep healing.

In rare cases, neck pain can be a symptom of a heart attack, but when it is, it is often accompanied by sweating, shortness of breath, nausea and/or vomiting, arm pain or jaw pain. If you have neck pain along with other symptoms of a heart attack, you should seek medical help immediately.

Meningitis

Meningitis refers to inflammation of the tissue around the spinal cord and brain. Neck pain is a symptom of meningitis, but it is often combined with fever and headache. Meningitis symptoms should be treated as a medical emergency, as meningitis can be fatal.

Some of the other causes of beck pain include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis  
  • Osteoporosis  
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Fibromyalgia  
  • Herniated cervical disk
  • Spondylosis (osteoarthritis of the neck)
  • Infection
  • Congenital abnormalities
  • Tumor/spine cancer

When neck pain does not resolve on its own and is present with other symptoms such as fever, nausea, swollen glands, tingling, numbness, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, it’s time to seek medical help.

Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Brings Neck Pain Relief

Fortunately, chiropractic neck pain treatment can bring neck pain relief in many cases. A visit to your Houma and Thibodaux chiropractor will start with a diagnosis to determine the exact cause of the neck pain. From there, an ideal treatment protocol will be prescribed and implemented, including neck pain relief exercises.

Some of the chiropractic techniques that can bring neck pain relief include:

  • Cervical spine adjustment
  • Address/correct misalignment and subluxations
  • Decompression therapy
  • Treatment for ruptured or bulging disc


Additional effective treatments for neck pain can include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Stretching
  • Neck pain relief exercises
  • Heat and ice therapy
  • Wearing a neck collar for stability
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
