  2. Neck Pain? Your neck is composed of cervical vertebrae, nerves, and muscles that are responsible for support your head. There are seven cervical vertebrae that make up your neck, starting at the base of the skull and extending down to the thoracic vertebrae. It has a flexible range of motion and can move up and down, and side to side. It’s high level of flexibility, however, makes the neck highly susceptible to injury.

  3. Neck Pain Caused By? • There can be many reasons behind your neck pain like due to some activities such as extended sitting. • Repetitive motion. • Accidents, falls. • Blows to the body or head, aging, and everyday wear and tear can result in neck pain.

  4. Acute neck pain is usually the result of muscle, ligament, or tendon strain. • Constant neck straining can occur when the spine is not balanced due to poor posture, obesity, or weak abdominal muscles. • Additionally, it can occur due to the constant contracting of muscles associated with stress and tension. • Chronic neck pain that lasts beyond three months or is accompanied by arm pain, numbness, or tingling, could indicate a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, or osteoarthritis

  5. What Should I Expect At My Chiropractic Appointment? At your first chiropractic appointment, Dr. Foss will perform and exam to locate the source of your pain and ask you questions about how long it’s lasted, how you’ve tried to remedy it, whether or not it occurs elsewhere, and possible pain triggers or alleviators. Diagnostic images such as x-rays, a CT-scan, or an MRI may also be required. Once the source of your pain has been identified, Dr. Foss will begin by making neck adjustments. Using his hands, he will apply a controlled but sudden force to specific joints of your neck. This force will push the joints beyond their normal range of motion in order to loosen them. These adjustments will improve your mobility, reduce your pain, and restore your range of motion.

  6. In Addition, Several Other Manual Therapies May Be Used. These Can Include: • Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy • Manual joint stretching and resistance techniques • Therapeutic massage • Trigger point therapy • Interferential electrical stimulation • Ultrasound • Therapeutic exercises

  7. How Can I Prevent Future Neck Pain?


  9. Is chiropractic care safe? Chiropractic care is considered one of the safest drug-free and non-invasive therapies for neck pain. However, as with any medical treatment, there is always the possibility of risk. The majority of risks associated with chiropractic care stem from misdiagnosis. You can minimize this risk by being as detailed as possible when discussing your symptoms, current medications, and medical history with Dr. Foss.
