Neck Pain Q & A
What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain is a very common complaint among American adults. It can be caused by injury, poor posture, degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, and misalignment.
Another common cause of neck pain is spending too much time hunched over a cell phone, tablet, or workstation. This condition is commonly referred to as ‘text neck’.
Dr. Gehnrich believes that there is no reason to live in pain, as it can have a detrimental effect on the rest of your life and prevent you from doing the things you love. He offers comprehensive and compassionate care to identify the root cause of your pain and provide treatment to trigger your body’s healing response while also providing pain relief.
If you experience any loss of strength, numbness, or tingling in your arms or hands in conjunction with your neck pain you should seek immediate treatment with Dr. Gehnrich at Rhino Chiropractic & Wellness.
How is Neck Pain Diagnosed?
Dr. Gehnrich offers comprehensive diagnostic services to identify the true cause of your discomfort. He asks when you began to experience pain; if you have attempted any treatment or self-care and found any relief; if the pain is only in your neck or if it radiates to your arms or down your back.
He physically palpates your neck, feeling your cervical spine, muscles, and other soft tissues for swelling or abnormality.
He may run neurological tests to see if any peripheral nerves are affected or order diagnostic imaging tests to check for any herniations in the cervical spine.
How Does Dr. Gehnrich Treat Neck Pain?
Dr. Gehnrich offers individually customized treatment plans to address the specific needs of each patient. While relieving the painful area in your neck is his first goal, it’s important to thoroughly evaluate the full length of the spine to ensure whole-body healing.
Misalignment in the neck affects the rest of the spine. And if you didn’t suffer an injury that accounts for your neck problem, the underlying cause of the pain may come from misalignments somewhere along the length of the spine.
Treatment may involve chiropractic adjustments to release any subluxation in the neck and spine that are causing the pain. You may be taught stretches to release any subsequent tension in the neck or have hot and cold treatments to relieve pain and swelling.
Dr. Gehnrich may provide massage therapy treatments to relax muscles and relieve pain. He also evaluates your posture, physical activity, and keyboard habits to determine if repetitive motion or poor posture may contribute to your neck pain.
If you are suffering from any neck pain, don’t hesitate to make an appointment for treatment. Dr. Gehnrich’s holistic approach to caring for your health and well-being helps you to get back to your normal activities and feeling great before you know it.
