Neck Pain Relief
Chiropractic treatment is the answer to your neck pain
If you experience uncomfortable or painful neck pain on a daily basis, you are not alone. Nearly 10% of Americans experience neck pain every day for one reason or another.
Chiropractic care combined with massage therapy gives you the best chance to recover and relieve pain fast. These modalities target and treat the source of your neck pain, rather than cover it up. Painkillers and other prescriptions may temporarily relieve pain, but they are not a long term solution. You can look forward to lasting, holistic recovery when you engage in chiropractic treatments.
When treating neck pain patients, our primary goal is to use spinal adjustments and techniques to repair ligament, or collagen, tissue. Once corrected, you should experience a decrease in joint pain and an increase in mobility.
Some common reasons why you may experience neck pain include:
- Whiplash injuries resulting from vehicle or work accidents
- Trips or falls that compromised the structural integrity of your neck, causing ligament damage to occur.
- Long-term exposure to neck or spinal stress due to poor posture or other lifestyle habits.
With these instances, your joints, tissues, and surrounding muscles may feel painful or restricted. Loss of function due to pain or loss of mobility can make work and everyday life much more difficult.
We help you correct faulty biomechanics that have led to tissue damage. Through chiropractic techniques, adjustments, and massage therapy sessions, we restore proper joint motion in your neck while triggering the reflexive relief you need from your pain.
Medical massage therapy supports your smooth & effective recovery
Our massage therapists use techniques like trigger point therapy, cupping, and neuromuscular facilitation to target your neck pain, ease discomfort, increase mobility, and help neck muscles relax.
In addition to complementary therapies like massage, we also support you with at-home exercises, stretches, and other bodywork practices to perform in-between clinic visits. Every self-care plan we create is customized to your needs, abilities, and goals. We work with you to create a long-term plan that supports healing and sustained recovery.

Headache relief is one of the most common reasons why patients visit us at our clinic. Headaches are often triggered by tensions and strains in other parts of your body, such as your shoulders or upper back. When these muscles become tight, they can cause headaches to form. Luckily, chiropractic care and massage therapy can alleviate tension and diminish headaches.
Headaches are triggered by physical and environmental factors, such as:
- Neck and upper back spasms
- Illness or allergy
- Poor nutritional choices
- Muscle tension
- Overuse of painkillers
- Chemical exposure
- Stress and other emotional triggers
- Whiplash (post-traumatic headache)
- Neck problems (cervicogenic headache)
One or more of the factors listed above may contribute to your headaches. There are many different types of migraines and headaches, so it is important to come in for a consultation. We’ll evaluate your pain and discomfort through a comprehensive exam and a review of your health history. Then, we’ll recommend a course of treatment based on our assessment and diagnosis.

Here are some helpful tips we frequently recommend to our patients to help prevent and alleviate neck and headache pain:
Good lifting techniques & proper posture
Whether you are working out or simply going about your daily life, remember to mind your posture. Everyday tasks such as sitting or lifting can lead to neck injuries. We support your posture and lifestyle changes with guidance and education.
Walking, biking, swimming, and other physical activities provide the endurance and endorphins you need to maintain recovery and prevent stress or strains. Exercise also keeps your heart, joints, and spine healthy.
Proper diet & nutrition
A healthy and nutritious diet gives your body the fuel it needs to perform and recover. A proper diet will also reduce your risk of injury and illness. We can help guide you towards the right diet that will help you feel your best.
Managing stress is one of the best ways you can manage pain and improve recovery times. Self-care practices such as yoga, meditation, journaling, and other stress-relieving techniques are an important part of your rehabilitation.
