Common Questions about Neck Pain Relief

Do you suffer from frequent bouts of neck pain? Good news for you: our team at the Synergy Oviedo Chiropractic clinic has devised a way of dealing with that. We know that our patients have a lot of chiropractic-related questions when it comes to neck pain. Here are your most commonly asked neck pain questions, answered.

Frequently Asked Questions for Neck Pain Relief

1. What is causing my neck pain?

Neck pain can be the result of a disease, a disorder, an injury, or just general wear and tears. Conditions that have been known to cause neck pain include arthritis, poor posture, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, herniated spinal discs, pinched nerves, fibromyalgia, and viral infection.   The most common cause of neck pain occurs when the spine gets out of alignment.  This misalignment is called a vertebral subluxation and this is what Chiropractors are trained to locate, detect, and correct.  

2. What are some symptoms of neck pain?

Expect the following symptoms: pain, aching, swelling, tingling, stiffness, tenderness, and weakness. Sometimes the symptoms will spread to other parts of the body, like the shoulders, arms, and hands often mimicking a shoulder problem or carpal tunnel or tennis elbow.  Another common result of pinched nerves in the neck are headaches.  In fact, most headaches are actually a referral pattern of an underlying neck issue.

3. What are the types of neck pain?

According to Harvard Health Publishing, there are several types of neck pains: muscle pain, muscle spasm, headache pain, facet joint pain, nerve pain, referred pain, and bone pain. Your chiropractor should be able to narrow down the type of pain you are experiencing based on signs, symptoms, and diagnostic evaluation.

4. How is neck pain diagnosed?

A chiropractor will perform a series of diagnostic tests to determine the cause of the patient's neck pain. X-ray testing, CT scanning, bone scanning, EMGs, and NCVs may be used among those tests. In our office, we use state of the art digital x-rays that offer the patient a convenient way for us to accurately assess the cause of your neck pain.

5. How can a chiropractor help with neck pain? 

After delivering a diagnosis, your chiropractor should offer a treatment plan that is appropriate for your situation. Chiropractors are trained to provide specific, gentle spinal adjustments to help correct the misalignment in the neck.  In our office, we use a combination, or “synergy” approach, to help our patients by combining chiropractic adjustments with physical therapy and home exercises.  More aggressive treatment options range anywhere from medication and topical ointments to cervical surgery. The treatment plan will largely depend on the severity of the patient's neck pain.
