Neck Pain Q&A

What causes neck pain?

Acute neck pain that lasts less than three weeks is often the result of strained muscles due to overuse or poor posture.

Chronic neck pain typically lasts longer than six months and can be serious enough to interfere with your quality of life. Common causes of chronic neck pain include:

  • Bone spurs
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

The team at Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center also treats whiplash, a chronic neck condition that occurs during a car accident or other violent event.

Whiplash describes an injury that’s caused by the forceful back and forth movement of your neck. This movement can cause tears in your muscles or damage in the discs that protect your cervical (upper) spine.

How does chiropractic care relieve neck pain?

Chiropractic care for whiplash and other painful conditions focuses on relieving the pain and accelerating your overall healing process. The team also focuses on improving the flexibility and function of your cervical spine to prevent additional pain.

Dr. Gould uses a variety of manual manipulation techniques to realign your cervical spine and prevent herniated discs and bone spurs from pressing on surrounding nerves. 

He also offers spinal decompression therapy that uses a traction table to better stretch your spine to relieve persistent neck pain and back pain.

In addition to manual techniques and decompression therapy, the team at Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center also offers other advanced chiropractic services to help relieve your pain and encourage your body to heal from the inside out.

What other treatments are available for neck pain?

The Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center office is equipped with advanced, state-of-the-art technologies and services to complement chiropractic manipulations, including laser and massage therapies.

Laser therapy

Laser therapy uses laser energy to trigger your body’s natural healing ability. The team directs warm, class 4 laser energy into the deep tissues of your body, which floods the area with photons to stimulate healing. 

Laser therapy re-energizes your cells and boosts your blood circulation to reduce inflammation and pain.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy uses manual techniques to manipulate your muscles and other soft tissues to release tensions and knots. Massage also improves your blood circulation and promotes deep relaxation within your body.
