Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment for Burien, Des Moines & Normandy Park

At Optimal Health Spine & Wellness Clinic, your local Normandy Park neck pain clinic, we work with hundreds of people just like you who may be struggling with acute or chronic neck issues. We understand that true health requires not just absence of disease or pain, but also the presence of optimal well-being and function within every major bodily system. This is part of the reason why a healthy cervical spine is so crucial to your overall health since the neck region serves as the first point of contact between the spinal cord and the rest of your body.

Top 5 Most Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can happen for a variety of reasons, some of which may be less obvious than others. Here are the top 5 most common causes of neck pain observed by our Burien neck pain doctor:

  1. Auto accidents.
  2. Slips, trips, and falls.
  3. Poor posture, body mechanics, and/or workspace set-up.
  4. Stress.
  5. Advancing age.

In addition to neck pain–which is often described as sore, achy, or sharp–signs and symptoms of neck dysfunction include:

  • Neck stiffness
  • Sore and/or tight muscles in the neck, upper back, and shoulders
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms and hands
  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain

How Chiropractic Care Can Improve Your Neck Pain

Injury within the neck can interfere with your nervous system’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body and lead to significant disruption of a person’s normal day-to-day life. Chiropractic care can make a dramatic positive impact on neck pain by focusing on several main treatment goals:

  1. Reduce inflammation.
  2. Promote tissue healing.
  3. Restore normal spinal alignment and joint mobility.
  4. Reduce pain.
  5. Reduce swelling and pressure on nearby spinal nerves.
  6. Improve the strength and motor control of important postural muscles.
  7. Prevent recurrence and/or chronic dysfunction.

Specific chiropractic care techniques used to achieve such treatment goals for neck pain include:

  • Spinal adjustments and joint mobilizations
  • Massage therapy, including trigger point release
  • Home exercise prescription
  • Neuromuscular re-education and postural retraining
  • Lifestyle counseling, including workspace modification and stress management techniques

These techniques are effective, non-invasive, drug-free, and safe for you or any loved one struggling with neck pain.
