What is neck pain?
Neck pain occurs at the top of your spine in the cervical vertebrae of the back of your neck. It is an area that is often affected because it is unprotected and may be subject to injury. The causes of neck pain vary and may include over or improper use, including heavy lifting, injury, or trauma, possibly from a car accident. It could be due to degeneration, poor muscle tone, obesity, arthritis, or other reasons. Neck pain can be acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long term lasting weeks, months, or years).
The good news is that there are many options for treatment. At Spin, Body, and Soul, serving residents of Greenwich, CT, suffering from neck pain, our treatments include:
Chiropractic adjustments are the manual manipulation of the musculoskeletal system by chiropractors using their hands or an instrument. The core tenet of chiropractic is that the body needs proper support to help heal and is based on the link between the proper alignment of the spine and the body's function.
Acupuncture uses thin, metal needles inserted just below the skin to release spasms that may be causing pain in the neck, back, or other areas. It is an ancient and traditional Chinese practice, and the needles are activated by the practitioner's hands or by electrical stimulation stimulating the central nervous system. Acupuncture is believed to work for several ailments, not only spasms and neck pain.
Massage therapy is the stimulation of the body's soft tissues to enhance wellness and relieve pain. It is one of the most widely recognized tools used to reduce back and neck pain, and there are different forms of massage therapy depending on your individual needs.
Active Release Therapy.
Active release therapy or technique (ART) is a chiropractic technique that works on the soft tissues of the body using compressive, shear, or tensile force with manual manipulation to relieve injuries, including repetitive strain and trauma injuries.
These techniques are only a few ways to address neck pain, and you must be correctly assessed and treated. Contact Dr. Piacente and her team at Spine, Body, and Soul, serving Greenwich, CT, at 203-941-0577 to book an appointment for your neck pain today.
