Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain in Cheektowaga, NY
Neck pain is common, but it should never be thought of as normal. Patients with neck pain experience symptoms like:
- Muscle tightness and spasms
- Migraines and headaches
- Limited range of motion
- Pain that is aggravated by holding the head in the same position for extended periods of time (as with sitting at a desk using a computer)
Our neck pain treatments start by determining the root cause of your pain. These may include:
- Car accidents
- Strains and sprains
- Too much screen time
- Improper sleep position
- Bone misalignments
- Cervical disc problems
With the cause of your pain identified, we then assess the current health of your neck. Has it lost part of its curve? Do we see degeneration in the discs?
It’s critical that your neck has the proper curve. In a healthy body, this curve puts the head in a position right above the shoulders. This distributes the weight of your head evenly, which exerts equal amounts of pressure on each of the discs in your spine. If your head is moved forward slightly—something we see often in patients who spend a lot of time on computers and screens—there is more pressure on the neck and upper back, leading to chronic neck pain, back pain, and headaches.
