Neck pain involves a feeling of discomfort in your neck, head, shoulders, or upper back. Neck and arm pain often originate from injured or irritated joints, discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, or nerve tissue. The expert team at Makda Chiropractic Health Center offers holistic treatments to relieve neck pain.
Neck pain can present in various forms. You might experience headaches, muscle tension, pain that worsens while working at a computer or driving, muscle spasms, or a limited range of motion of your head. Neck pain can be severe or mild. It may come and go, subside on its own, or be long-lasting.
The following causes can contribute to neck discomfort:
Smoking, continuous computer use, and carrying heavy bags over your shoulder can increase your risk of developing neck and shoulder problems.
Dr. Getachew and her team review your symptoms and medical history to diagnose neck pain. They complete a physical exam and may use blood tests or imaging tests, such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans, to determine the root cause of neck pain and establish the most effective treatment.
After identifying the source of neck pain, Dr. Getachew and her team treat it accordingly for long-lasting symptom relief. They offer:
The Makda Chiropractic Health Center specialists use a series of chiropractic adjustments to manipulate your cervical spine, relieve nerve pressure, and realign the spine for lasting comfort. They use state-of-the-art chiropractic tables and procedures to help you achieve almost instant relief.
Massage helps eliminate neck pain associated with muscle tension and nerve compression. Your Makda Chiropractic Health Center specialist uses a variety of innovative massage techniques that best suit your personalized needs.
During physical therapy sessions, exercises and stretches strengthen muscles and joints to relieve chronic neck pain and prevent it from returning.
At-home neck pain treatments help alleviate discomfort, too. Heat and ice therapy reduces inflammation associated with a neck injury. Wearing a neck brace limits range of motion while your injury heals.
