How do I know if my neck pain is serious?
If you have acute neck pain, it probably isn’t serious, but neck pain can be a sign of something serious, so it’s important to pay attention to your symptoms and get professional advice.
If your neck pain spreads from your neck down to your arms and even your legs, then it requires medical attention. Also, if you have symptoms that accompany your neck pain, like headaches, weakness, numbness, or a tingling sensation, then they also require medical attention. In fact, these other symptoms could be caused by a serious medical condition, so it can be really important to address them.
If your neck pain is severe or long-lasting, then you definitely should do something about it. It could be an indication of a serious underlying issue. Neck pain lasting longer than six weeks is considered chronic neck pain which requires professional care.
What is the best treatment for neck pain?
For acute or chronic neck pain, a professional may look for the underlying cause, like an acute trauma or a chronic condition. Sometimes, however, it’s difficult to identify an underlying cause. The best treatment for you may be the treatment that addresses the cause of your neck pain, or the treatment that addresses the neck pain itself.
For many patients, chiropractic care is the best treatment. With this kind of care, a professional will apply a controlled force to a patient’s spine in the back or the neck. The practitioner will use their hands or a small instrument for this. The treatment is done to improve the patient’s back or neck motion and function, and as a result, the patient may have better movement and less pain. Chiropractic care may also help with headaches, arthritis, sports injuries, repetitive-use injuries, other injuries, nerve problems, and other issues.
What are the other treatments for neck pain?
There are other treatments for neck pain, like physical therapy, spinal decompression, and others. Physical therapy can help a lot if there isn’t a known cause for a patient’s neck pain, or if a patient is recovering from injury or surgery. Spinal decompression can stretch the spine and relieve pressure in the neck.
Any one of the treatments we’ve mentioned could help you with your neck pain, or a combination of treatments could help even more. You’ll be able to find out during a simple consultation with one of our professionals here at Back Pain & Joint Center.
What doctor should I see for a stiff neck or neck pain?

We welcome you to contact us if you have any other questions or if you’d like a consultation with one of our chiropractors. During a consultation, the chiropractor will ask you about your pain, investigate the cause, and tell you more about our treatments.
