Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

With about 15% of Americans experiencing neck pain every year, there are numerous reasons for its cause. They include:

  • Sitting at the computer in an ongoing position
  • Pinched nerve
  • Whiplash from an accident
  • Herniated or bulging disc
  • Poor posture
  • Muscle strain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cervical stenosis
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Arthritis, quite often osteoarthritis

To find out the source of your neck pain, visit Dr. Keys at Keys Chiropractic for a thorough exam to have your pain evaluated and diagnosed.

How can neck pain be prevented?

Although neck pain comes with aging and the normal wearing down of the body, several preventive measures may help you stop the onset of symptoms. 

To limit your chances of developing neck pain, avoid the following.

  • Carrying heavy bags over your shoulder
  • Cradling your phone between your shoulder and ear
  • Sleeping on your side or stomach instead of your back
  • Poor posture

If you have neck pain that isn’t getting better, it’s important to see Dr. Keys for an assessment of your condition. He can give you the attention needed.

How is neck pain diagnosed?

Dr. Keys begins your examination with a consultation. He looks at your medical history, answers your questions, and assesses your condition.

He may order imaging tests such as a digital X-ray to determine the severity of your diagnosis. Once your condition is conclusive, Dr. Keys creates a personalized treatment plan to relieve your neck pain for the long term. 

How is neck pain treated?

Depending on your symptoms, treatment options for your neck pain may vary. They include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Electrostimulation
  • Aspen class IV laser therapy
  • Triton DTS® Traction

After a thorough, hands-on examination of your entire neck and spine, Dr. Keys tackles your pain with the most holistic, conservative, and noninvasive approach to make sure you’re getting the safest treatment.
