Neck Pain

Neck pain is common and can have a significant impact on your quality of life. Simple tasks such as turning your head, driving, or even sleeping can become excruciatingly uncomfortable. At Chiropractic Centers of Drs. Campanella & Olivacz in Bel Air and Havre de Grace, MD, we provide various treatments to alleviate your discomfort and improve your health.


Common Causes of Neck Pain  

Understanding the underlying cause of neck pain is essential for effective treatment and management. Some common causes of neck pain include:

  • Whiplash: Whiplash occurs when your head is moved forward and backward, typically during a car accident. This sudden movement can strain the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the neck and result in intense pain.
  • Muscle strain: Poor posture, overuse of neck muscles, and sports injuries can cause strains or tension in the neck.
  • Degenerative conditions: Conditions like osteoarthritis, cervical spondylosis, and degenerative disc disease can strain the spine, resulting in neck pain.
  • Herniated or bulging discs: The discs located between the vertebrae can herniate or bulge due to a neck injury and put pressure on the nearby nerves.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, or spinal stenosis can contribute to neck pain. 
  • Stress and tension: Emotional stress or anxiety can lead to muscle tension and tightness in the neck and shoulders.

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Our chiropractors take a holistic approach to treatment, which addresses the symptoms and root causes of neck pain. Some methods we may recommend include the following:

  • Spinal manipulation: We perform gentle adjustments to the spine, particularly in the cervical region, to restore proper alignment and mobility. 
  • Mobilization techniques: Our chiropractors may use mobilization techniques to gently move the joints in the neck through their natural range of motion. This process helps improve flexibility, reduce stiffness, and enhance overall joint function. 
  • Soft tissue therapies: Soft tissue techniques, such as massage therapy, can address muscle tension, knots, and adhesions in the neck.
  • Therapeutic exercises: These exercises are designed to strengthen the muscles that support the neck. 
  • Ergonomic and lifestyle advice: Our chiropractors may provide guidance on proper posture and body mechanics to minimize neck strain.
