When should you see a Chiropractor for neck pain?


  1. Your neck pain or stiffness does not improve after a few days

  2. You cannot look to the right or left without severe neck pain

  3. You feel like you must use over-the-counter pain medications just to make it through the day and are using it regularly to treat your neck pain

  4. You’re worried that your neck pain may have a serious cause

  5. Your neck pain started in the neck but has moved to numbness or tingling in your hands or wrists

  6. Your neck pain started within a few days of a car accident

  7. Your neck pain is worse when you first wake up in the morning but then begins to feel a little better as the day progresses

At the Chiropractic appointment the Chiropractor will conduct a thorough consultation and examination asking you questions about the history of your neck pain, symptoms, what movements make it worse and what makes it better. The Chiropractor will also check to see how well you move your neck during the examination and will look for numbness or tenderness and tingling in your arms or hands.

If you are suffering from neck pain from lifting, falling, whiplash injury or simply feeling pains from sleeping in an uncomfortable position it’s a good time to see a Chiropractor for treatments before it gets worse. Injuries resulting from abnormal motion can cause muscles to become overextended and the vertebra in the neck to shift out of alignment. Chiropractic treatments can re-align your vertebra and restore normal motion in your neck.
