Neck Pain | At some point in life, we’ve all dealt with a stiffness or soreness in our neck. This pain usually solves itself within a day or two but if the pain does not go away, it can be an indication of something more severe and lead to significant pain in the neck. The occasional neck pain can quickly lead to a tingling sensation in the arms or hands or even headaches and migraines.
Living with neck pain can cause challenges in all areas of life. Some of the pain may come from pore posture, improper stretching before a workout, lack of proper neck support while sleeping or other impromptu movements can pinch or irritate the nerves in the neck. The pain may dull in nature or be a sharp, stabbing sensation. It may feel worse when moving your head, rolling your head or looking to the left or right.

Our licensed providers can diagnose your condition and find the root cause of your neck pain. We take important factors into consideration, such as patient history and xrays to put together a personalized care plan to treat the root cause of your neck pain. Neck pain may be treated with a combination of physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory agents, a massage or chiropractic care. If none of these methods are helpful, other measures can be discussed. You should never ignore neck pain or delay treatment. This could cause the pain in your neck to worsen and treatment to be more involved.
