Sacramento CA Chiropractor Treats Neck Pain

Our Sacramento CA Chiropractic Office treats countless patients with neck pain daily.

Barham Chiropractic focuses on finding the underlying problems causing neck pain and creating a personalized plan to correct it with care.

If you are experiencing chronic neck pain, we would love to perform exams and ascertain whether this is something we could resolve. Most patients we treat for neck pain experience immediate and long-term pain relief.

What are the common causes of neck pain?

Chiropractor Sacramento CA Steven K. Barham

Conditions that may cause neck pain include but are not limited to: Aging, Injury, Mental stress, Physical strain, Conditions that affect spine balance, and growths. The most common causes we see at our Sacramento CA Chiropractor office are conditions that affect spine balance, physical strain, and injury.

  • Aging: Degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis (the wearing down of joint cartilage) and spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spaces in the spine) can lead to neck pain as you age. Over time, stress and motion can lead to spinal disc degeneration, causing a herniated disc or pinched nerve.
  • Injury: Trauma from sudden forced movement of the neck or head and rebound in the opposite direction (whiplash) can cause pain and soreness. The muscles, ligaments, discs, vertebral joints, and nerve roots in the spinal cord in the neck can be affected by trauma injuries.
  • Mental stress: Tightening your neck muscles due to tension commonly causes neck pain and stiffness.
  • Physical strain: Overusing your neck muscles during repetitive actions or strenuous activities can lead to stiffness and pain.
  • Conditions that affect spinal balance: Poor posture (sitting for long periods of time; poor computer/keyboard/chair positioning), being overweight, and weak abdominal muscles can all affect spine posture and contribute to neck pain.
  • Growths: In rare cases, masses including tumors, cysts, and bone spurs can cause neck pain.

Very often, neck pain is caused by a condition that we can diagnose and correct through chiropractic adjustments. We follow a strict in-take process where we use diagnostic tools and other tests to find the root of the problem.

By focusing on what is causing the neck pain, we can improve systems but more importantly correct the underlying issue long-term.

Are Chiropractic neck adjustments safe?

Yes. The studies unequivocally show neck adjustments are unlikely to cause injury. We actually wrote an entire article called: Science Proves Chiropractic Neck Adjustments Are Extremely Safe (19 Reliable Studies Cited) because this question is so important and common.

Can Chiropractic care help with neck mobility?

Studies consistently show that consistent chiropractic care leads to predictable decreases in “Disability Index scores” within the upper back and neck.

The Disability index is a test that assesses different types of issues resulting from neck disability and weighs them within categories to help Doctors assess the severity of neck conditions.

The study listed below mirrors what we see in our office every day.

Many of our patients experience neck pain and assume that it is normal.

You do not have to live with neck pain. Our friend Eric here was performing just fine with his neck pain, but he absolutely didn’t have to deal with it.

We love that we were able to be there for Eric and help him reduce neck and back pain to get back to living pain free.

Can A Chiropractor Cure My Neck Pain?

Chiropractors may be able to reduce your neck pain significantly. It is important that Chiropractors make sure that they find what is causing your neck pain BEFORE committing to help you because not all neck pain can be treated with chiropractic care.

Thanks to our rigorous assessment and diagnosis process, you can rest assured that the neck adjustments you receive are safe and effective.

Our goal is to help you experience long-term pain relief WITHOUT medications or invasive medical procedures.

If you experience neck pain, please give us a call during office hours or consider our New Patient Offer.

We look forward to celebrating your success along with the rest of our friends shown here.
