Neck Pain Treatment in Frisco

neck pain treatment FriscoWithout a doubt, neck pain is one of the most common complaints we see at our Frisco practice. Considering the amount of time people spend at their workstations or on their digital devices at home, it’s no surprise that many suffer from this issue.

It’s rare for neck pain to be a symptom of a more serious problem. If, however, the pain is accompanied by numbness or loss of strength in your arms or hands, or if you have shooting pain into your shoulder or down your arm, seek medical care immediately. With our neck pain treatment Frisco, we have helped thousands of patients receive much-needed results.

Common Symptoms Of Neck Discomfort

Signs and symptoms of neck pain include the following:

  • Muscle tightness and spasms
  • A decreased ability to move your head
  • Headache

Common Causes Of Neck Pain

Because your neck is flexible and supports the weight of your head, it can be susceptible to injuries and conditions that result in pain and restricted motion. Here are some of the most common causes of this pain:

Muscle strains—Things like sitting for many hours hunched over your computer often trigger muscle strains. Even reading in bed—especially if you don’t have proper neck support—can strain neck muscles.

Worn joints—As you age, your neck joints tend to wear down. Osteoarthritis causes the cushions (cartilage) between your bones (vertebrae) to deteriorate. Your body then develops bone spurs that affect joint motion and result in pain.

Nerve compression—Herniated discs or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your neck can put pressure on the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord.

Injuries—A rear-end auto collision often results in a whiplash injury. This type of injury
occurs when the head is rapidly jerked backward and then forward, resulting in strain of the soft tissues of the neck.

Chiropractic Techniques For Neck Pain Treatment Frisco

Chiropractic, in general, is successful in neck pain treatment Frisco. Patients commonly complain of a crick in the neck, producing sharp pain, so they can’t move their head, usually from a pinched nerve. Patients feel the muscle spasm, but the impact on the nerve is what causes the pain.

We have to get the pressure off the nerve. Using Gonstead, we can adjust the area gently, without twisting. The faster we do that, the faster we restore normal movement. Some patients feel relief immediately, even after not being able to move their neck at all, with typically about a 50% or more range of motion. Other, more severe issues may take longer to resolve.

Before any adjustment is made, the first step is to take an X-ray to see which bone needs to be adjusted, and what caused the problem, so we know which way to move it.

We had a patient come in with a crick in their neck for months, causing them to lock up. None of the medicine or muscle relaxers they had taken worked. After their week one adjustment, they saw a slight improvement. By week two, improvement was up to 80%. With continued care, they’re now back to normal range of motion.
