Your chiropractors in Tampa, FL, can help with your neck pain.
Acute or chronic neck pain can have a dramatic effect on your life. The constant stabbing pain when you turn your head can make it hard to move. The dull ache of your neck muscles can make it difficult to concentrate. In short, neck pain can make you miserable. The good news is, your chiropractor can help you feel better.
The experienced doctors at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL, offer comprehensive chiropractic and wellness services, including treatment for neck pain.
Acute neck pain can be caused by suffering whiplash due to a car accident, trauma from a sports injury, and more. Chronic neck pain can be caused by poor posture, degenerative joint disease, arthritis, or other medical conditions.
Whether your neck pain is acute or chronic, there are a few simple tips you can try to get relief, including:
- Applying ice to the area several times each day to decrease swelling
- Applying heat to the area to relax tense muscles
- Gently stretching to relieve stiffness and retain range-of-motion
- Taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and pain medications
For moderate to severe neck pain that isn’t relieved with home therapies, it’s best to visit your chiropractor. At Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy, your chiropractor will examine your neck and cervical vertebrae, check your posture and range-of-motion, and possibly order x-rays of your neck.
After a thorough evaluation, your chiropractor will develop an individualized treatment plan to help you get relief from neck pain. Your treatment plan may include:
- Cervical adjustment
- Therapeutic massage
- Laser therapy
- Physical therapy
- Stretching and exercising
