Neck pain is one of the most common health complaints in the United States. According to recent scientific studies, more than 10% of America’s adult population suffers from neck pain at any given moment. Many things can contribute to neck problems. Fortunately, most neck pain does not have a serious cause.

Muscle strain is probably the biggest cause of neck pain today. Overuse, such as too many hours hunched over a computer keyboard or automobile steering wheel, triggers muscle strain. Poor posture and long periods of sitting are also common factors.

Worn joints caused by daily wear-and-tear, age or osteoarthritis also cause neck pain. Nerve compression caused by bone spurs or herniated disks are another common cause. Neck pain can also result from injury, accidents and disease.

Chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial for people with neck problems. Unlike prescription medications, chiropractic relief for neck pain comes through procedures that address the pain’s cause rather than the symptoms. Chiropractic care is a safe and natural solution with no lingering side effects.

The doctors on the Old Bridge chiropractor team at Plaza Chiropractic perform numerous examinations to locate a patient’s pain. They ask questions regarding current symptoms and treatment remedies. They conduct physical and neurological tests to observe a patient’s physical condition, posture, range of motion and pain-causing movements. In some cases, they may order additional tests such as x-rays and computerized imaging tests.

Neck pain relief typically comes in the form of neck adjustments that improve mobility and range of motion. Chiropractic care includes a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment therapy may include massage, rehabilitative exercises or something else the doctor prescribes.
