Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain


Chiropractic neck pain treatment is an alternative therapy. The treatment focuses on the alignment of joints and vertebrae. Many medical professionals recognize it as beneficial for neck and joint pain. Chiropractors may work alongside other health professionals to improve their clients’ health. Chiropractic neck pain treatment is noninvasive. It also involves no medicines or external substances.

Chiropractic neck pain treatment should not be painful. Quite the opposite, its intent is to ease pain. Long-term injuries or bad habits of posture can leave a person suffering chronic pain for no good reason. Chiropractic neck pain treatment can help many of these aches. Chiropractic treatment can help with other joint problems as well. In some cases, adjusting a vertebra may take pressure off a nerve or blood vessel. Some patients report a noticeable and lasting effect, in such cases. Where the problem is an injury, chiropractic adjustments may assist the healing process. Sometimes, neck pain may be due to a bad habit of posture. Here, chiropractic treatment can help adjust the affected joints and improve their function.


If you work at a computer or a desk most of the day:

  • Stretch your neck every hour or so.

  • Use a headset when on the telephone, especially if answering or using the phone is a main part of your job.

  • When reading or typing from documents at your desk, place them in a holder at eye level.

  • When sitting, make sure that your chair has a straight back with an adjustable seat and back, armrests, and a swivel seat.

For some, neck pain does not go away and becomes a long-lasting problem. Managing chronic pain means finding ways to make your pain tolerable so you can live your life.


You can use one or more of these methods to help reduce pain:

  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin), naproxen (Aleve), or acetaminophen (Tylenol).

  • Apply heat or ice to the painful area.

  • Use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, then use heat.

  • Apply heat using warm showers, hot compresses, or a heating pad. To prevent injuring your skin, do not fall asleep with a heating pad or ice bag in place.

  • Try sleeping on a firm mattress with a pillow that supports your neck. You may want to get a special neck pillow. You can find them on our patient essentials list from Amazon or at your local retail store.
