Neck pain is a common problem here in Stillwater. Dr. Klug is here to help. There are many causes of neck pain including poor posture, sleeping habits, sports injuries, work injuries, and auto injuries, to name a few.

It can lead to headaches or even numbness or weakness in the extremities.


Neck Pain Treatment in Stillwater

Here at Anchored Health Chiropractic, we strive to understand the root cause of the problem. There are many complicated structures supporting our necks and heads along with extremely important neurological structures in that area.

Our goal at Anchored Health Chiropractic is to understand the underlying cause of neck pain and find a solution to the problem. Adjustments to the spine can improve nerve function, blood flow, and motion, all while reducing inflammation and pain.

Although the neck is a relatively small area of the body, it is comprised of some complicated structures which do the important job of holding your head up. The small size of the vertebrae of the neck allows for a lot of mobility, but can also make the neck more vulnerable to injury and pain. Some of the causes of neck pain include:

  • Trauma, such as whiplash
  • Sleeping position
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive stress
  • Abnormalities in the bone structure
  • Joint issues
  • Muscle strains and pulls

Most of these issues are either caused by, or impact, the alignment of the spine. When muscles in the neck go into spasm, the spine gets pulled out of alignment. When the spine is misaligned, the nerves become irritated and cause further tension and other systemic problems. Because every nerve in the body has its root in the spinal column, issues that have their source at the neck can have a major impact throughout every other system.

Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected in Stillwater. They hope that if they wait long enough the pain will simply go away. In some cases it will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is usually still there. Over time, that area can become aggravated, and the pain can return. If the problem is not corrected it can become much more serious. Some patients let things go to the point where surgery may be the only option.


Conventional vs. Holistic Treatments

Most commonly, people try to deal with their neck pain using prescription or over-the-counter medications. This may help to relieve the symptoms in the short-term, but not only are patients dealing with side effects, the underlying issue goes unaddressed. Massage Therapy has become more popular over the years and this can help to relieve some muscle tightness. If the issue is in the bones or joints, the problem will remain.

Chiropractic treatment is a holistic practice that addresses the structural cause that leads to the majority neck pain. Following a thorough chiropractic assessment aimed at ruling out other issues and finding the exact source of the problem, a personalized recovery plan is developed. Gentle adjustments to the spine can bring instant relief and restore long term health to the neck and the entire body.
