Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Any injury or condition that affects the bones, ligaments, nerves, muscles, or joints in the neck can cause pain. The most common of these issues are:

  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive motion
  • Whiplash
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spinal stenosis

 

How do you treat neck pain?

Paragon Physical Medicine takes a multimodal approach to neck pain. Treatment starts with relief for pain and then progresses to corrective care. Once your body heals, Paragon Physical Medicine promotes periodic preventive care.

During the pain relief and corrective phases of treatment, Paragon Physical Medicine incorporates the following treatments:

Spinal adjustments

When your cervical spine is out of alignment, it can cause pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility. With manual chiropractic adjustments,  Paragon Physical Medicine helps restore alignment in your neck.

Acupuncture

Paragon Physical Medicine inserts thin needles into the skin at various places on your body. The process is meant to restore the flow of qi, or life force, in the body. The treatment is also thought to increase the body’s natural painkillers.

Physical rehab

Paragon Physical Medicine helps you heal from injury or muscle imbalance with targeted stretches and strength exercises. These methods help restore your neck’s normal function and prevent future pain.

How can I prevent neck pain?

Besides physical rehabilitation to restore your muscle balance, Paragon Physical Medicine also counsels patients on proper ergonomics and posture. Slumping over a computer or straining during physical work puts you at risk for neck pain, but Paragon Physical Medicine can give you pointers to prevent it.

Paragon Physical Medicine also provides advice on nutrition and physical activity to promote overall health and balance.

Proper neck support, especially during sleep, goes a long way toward preventing neck pain. A pillow that keeps your spine in a neutral position helps keep you from wrenching your neck during the night.
