Neck pain in Ashburn occurs in all sorts of forms. It can range from dull aching or burning tenderness to severe sharp, stabbing pain. Neck pain often includes symptoms of stiffness, burning, tingling, and numbness in the neck often accompanied by similar symptoms which radiate throughout the shoulders, arms, and hands, making it difficult to grasp objects. In addition, neck pain can lead to jaw pain and headaches, while blocked nerves in the neck also affect regions of the body further away.
Common Causes of Ashburn Neck Pain
Neck pain is a symptom itself. This means that before treating neck pain, our chiropractor must first diagnose the root cause of the pain. Ashburn neck pain occurs for several reasons which typically fall into three categories: injuries, illness, and structural problems.
Injuries are the most common cause with sprains and strains occurring due to sports, slip and falls, and vehicle accidents. Poor posture, text neck, and sleeping in a strange position can also injure the neck. Conditions which lead to neck pain include, but are not limited to fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and herniated discs. Diseases such as meningitis, spinal infections, and tumors also cause neck pain.
Neck Pain Treatments with Keegan Chiropractic
At Keegan Chiropractic, we offer a wide range of natural, non-invasive treatments for neck pain. Dr. Keegan works individually with each patient to assess the root cause of their neck pain symptoms and to devise a personalized wellness plan tailored to the patient’s individual needs. Wellness plans consist of one or more neck pain treatments or therapies used independently or in tandem to best treat a particular condition. Our neck pain treatments include:
Spinal adjustments to treat neck pain typically focus on the cervical portion of the spine which includes vertebrae in the upper back and neck regions. Mobilization, manipulation, and adjustment of these vertebrae directly improves neck pain, accelerates healing of soft tissue injuries in the area, and reduces pain.
Massage therapy reduces muscle tension, swelling, and pain and increases mobilization by breaking up and expelling scar tissue from the affected area. Used alone or in conjunction with additional treatments, massage therapy is an effective method for reducing neck pain and associated symptoms.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses light signals to stimulate circulation and healing in soft tissues on a cellular level.
