Neck Pain

Our chiropractors may use a combination of spinal manipulation, manual therapy, and other techniques as part of your treatment plan for neck pain. Below are some spinal manipulation techniques your chiropractor may use.
  • Flexion-distraction technique is a gentle hands-on spinal manipulation that involves a pumping action on the intervertebral disc instead of direct force.
  • Instrument-assisted manipulation uses a hand-held instrument to allow your chiropractor to apply force without thrusting into the spine.
  • Specific spinal manipulation helps restore joint movement using a gentle thrusting technique.
Your chiropractor may also use manual therapies to treat your neck pain.
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy uses special instruments to diagnose and treat muscle tension.
  • Manual joint stretching and resistance techniques can help reduce neck pain and other symptoms.
  • Trigger point therapy is used to relieve tight, painful points on a muscle.
Other therapies may also be used to ease neck pain symptoms.
  • Inferential electrical stimulation uses a low frequency electrical current to stimulate neck muscles.
  • Ultrasound sends sound waves into your muscle tissues to help stiffness and pain in your neck.
