Has sitting at your office desk become a literal pain in the neck? Chiropractic care can help.

With the millions of Americans who sit at their desks day in and day out at work, it's no wonder that neck pain is one of the most common neck paincomplaints that our Tampa, FL, chiropractors, Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz, and Dr. Elizabeth Gionfriddo, hear about. Poor ergonomics and bad posture are two of the most common reasons people end up dealing with back and neck problems—fortunately, our chiropractors offer several ways to alleviate your neck discomfort.

How can chiropractic care help me?

If you are dealing with neck pain and looking for an effective, non-surgical option for treating your symptoms and reducing discomfort, it might be time to turn to a chiropractic specialist in Tampa, FL, for help.

When you first come into our office, we will perform a thorough evaluation and examine the spine as a whole to look for other areas besides the neck that may be affected. This is because we focus on providing comprehensive care that treats the whole person, not just one specific injury or symptom. Once we determine the cause of your neck pain, we can create a treatment plan that will help you manage your discomfort.

One of the most common treatment options for handling neck pain is a chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation. By realigning areas of the spine that are out of whack, we take added pressure off certain nerves and tissue within the body, which in turn can get rid of neck pain. Chiropractic adjustments can also be therapeutic and relaxing, which can ease any tension you may have that could be causing your neck pain.

There are specific spinal manipulation techniques and other treatment options that can improve your neck pain including,

  • Specific spinal manipulation
  • Flexion-distraction technique
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Manual joint stretching
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Exercises
