Neck Pain Relief in Johnston

person with neck painA significant proportion of our patients seek our help to alleviate neck discomfort. Given the considerable time spent on computers at work or electronic devices at home, it’s little wonder that neck stiffness and pain are the predominant reasons individuals seek our treatment.

Caring for young children and the accompanying physical strain is the next significant cause of neck discomfort we treat. The recurrence of previous injuries, such as those sustained during school sports, whiplash incidents, and overuse, also frequently brings patients to our doors.

It’s uncommon for neck pain to indicate a more severe underlying health issue. However, if your neck pain is coupled with tingling sensations, weakness in your arms/hands, or if you experience shooting pain down your shoulder or arm, please consult a medical professional urgently.

Getting to the Root of Your Neck Pain

The neck’s main job is to support your head, and its flexibility makes it vulnerable to injuries and conditions that cause pain and limit movement. Here’s a look at some common instigators of neck pain

  • Muscle strains: spending hours hunched over your workstation or reading in bed without proper neck support can strain the neck muscles.
  • Worn joints: aging neck joints suffer considerable wear and tear. Osteoarthritis is a condition that wears down the cushioning (cartilage) between your vertebrae. As a response, your body might develop bone spurs that interfere with joint movement, resulting in pain.
  • Nerve compression: herniated disks or bone spurs on your neck’s vertebrae may put pressure on the nerves branching out from the spinal cord.
  • Injuries: whiplash injuries, often a result of rear-end car accidents or falls, can strain the neck tissues. This injury occurs when the head is rapidly jerked backward and forward, sometimes impacting the headrest or other structures in the car’s interior.

Whatever may have caused the injury, our team has solutions to relieve pain and restore function.
