NECK PAIN RELIEF
Achieve pain relief fast with help from our experienced chiropractors and massage therapists.
Neck pain is disruptive, uncomfortable, and keeps you from enjoying your life. At Oregon City Chiropractic, we treat patients with neck pain of varying degrees. Studies show that nearly 20% to 70% of adults experience neck pain that interferes with their daily activities at least once during their lifetime.
Although this may seem like a daunting statistic, chiropractic treatments combined with massage therapy offer a non-invasive and effective way to relieve pain. These treatments target and treat the underlying cause of your neck pain, rather than mask it.
When you work with our team at Oregon City Chiropractic, you will receive spinal adjustments and other chiropractic treatments that help repair ligaments, correct joint pain, and increase mobility.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
- Whiplash injuries from car accidents
- Trips or falls that result in ligament damage
- Poor posture
These incidents can leave your neck feeling painful, stiff, or uncomfortable. The joints in your spine attach to one another through ligament tissue. When this tissue experiences trauma or structural damage, your joints may feel quite painful. Vertebrae in your neck may lose function and restrict movement.
The best way to fix tissue damage and restore proper joint motion in your neck is through spinal manipulation. Chiropractic spinal adjustments trigger your body’s reflexive relief response and are the best route to restored mobility.
Massage & other bodywork techniques facilitate your healing
Oregon City Chiropractic provides more than just chiropractic treatments. Our chiropractors work in close conjunction with on-site massage therapists. We believe in a comprehensive approach to your healing and find that bodywork techniques, such as massage, complement chiropractic treatments very well.
While you work closely with a chiropractor to address joint pain and work on functional movement, you will also work with a massage therapist to reduce muscle tension and help you relax. Our massage therapists use non-invasive techniques such as cupping, neuromuscular facilitation, and trigger point therapy to ease neck pain, increase mobility in your cervical spine, and relax surrounding muscles.
In addition to massage and chiropractic treatments, our experts also provide at-home exercises and stretches you can perform on your own between visits. Physical therapy techniques and healthy habits further facilitate your healing. We work with you to customize a self-care plan that helps you establish and meet your goals.
Regardless of your injury, health concerns, or abilities, we are eager to help you on the road to long-term healing and pain relief.
Rapid headache relief is closer than you think
New clients often seek out our services for relief from persistent headaches or migraines. Headaches can be especially bothersome. The exact origin may be difficult to pinpoint, adding to the stress that headaches cause.
Trigger points in other parts of your body can cause headaches, as well as tight or irritated muscles at the top of your neck. When a chiropractor works on your neck joints, you may find that your headaches are diminished or disappear.
Physical and environmental factors that trigger headaches include:
- Overuse of painkillers
- Chemical exposure
- Neck & upper back spasms
- Stress & other emotional triggers
- Poor nutritional choices
- Muscle tension
- Illness or allergy
- Neck problems (cervicogenic headache)
- Whiplash (post-traumatic headache)
Migraine and tension headaches can have a negative impact on your daily life. At Oregon City Chiropractic, we treat patients with varying degrees of headache or migraine pain through comprehensive examinations, correct diagnosis, and a follow-up course of treatment.
Through a combination of massage therapy and chiropractic care, you can experience relief from debilitating or frequent headaches. Our support will offer immediate, short term relief, and set you on the path towards long-term rehabilitation.
ALL-NATURAL NECK & UPPER BACK PAIN RELIEF
We use holistic methods to effectively treat & manage neck & upper back pain
You may experience neck or upper back pain for a variety of reasons. Luckily, most of these causes are addressed effectively through chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, and ongoing at-home exercises, self-care, and proper nutrition.
Common causes of neck pain include:
- Excessive mental stress
- Prolonged sitting
- Improper workstation setup
- Excessive repetitive neck motions
- Physical inactivity
- Whiplash-type injuries
- Incomplete rehabilitation of past injuries
- Poor diet & nutritional practices
- Prolonged use of poorly ergonomically designed equipment
Oregon City Chiropractic combines massage therapy and chiropractic techniques to resolve neck and upper back pain caused by the issues listed above. We support your continued recovery and rehabilitation with at-home exercises, empowering you to take daily steps to improve your health and decrease pain.
Here are some of our most recommended practices that can help prevent and heal neck and upper back pain:
Use Good Lifting Techniques & Mind Your Posture
When lifting boxes, furniture, or weightlifting for exercise, be sure to mind your posture. Proper ergonomics prevent neck strain and injuries, whether at work, the gym, or at home.
If you want to protect your neck and upper back, work on building muscle strength, endurance, and overall heart health. Regular exercise is great for the joints in your spine, neck, and elsewhere in your body.
Eat a Proper Diet
Without the right nutrients, your body is more susceptible to illness, injury, and other long term problems. The right diet will accelerate your recovery time and decrease your chances of recurring injury.
Use Stress Management & Self-Care Techniques
In addition to maintaining a proper diet and exercise routine, you can also incorporate other self-care practices into your lifestyle. Yoga, meditation, and similar activities reduce stress. Excess stress can exacerbate pre-existing injuries or cause new ones to flare up more easily. Controlling your stress levels as much as possible will help ease upper back and neck pain.
