Live Free of Neck Pain without Surgery or Prescription Drugs.

Chiropractic care is one of the safest forms of treatment for patients with chronic pain, as treatment is provided without the risks of surgery or the use of prescription drugs.

The average American will experience some form of neck pain throughout points in their life. While neck pain ranges from mild to debilitating, no one should suffer in silence. Many patients who come to us say they are “managing” their pain. We do not accept this. When you are in pain, you aren’t operating at your full potential. You don’t need to miss any more moments, make any more excuses, or struggle through another day at work.

Chiropractic care restores the natural communication of the nervous system from the brain and the body by removing the interference that causes pain. A chiropractic adjustment will restore proper movement to the vertebrae, which allows the body to function properly. The body’s expression of pain is due to improper function in the nervous system.

A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive procedure that will offer almost immediate relief for your neck pain. During the adjustment, our doctor will be able to increase the mobility of your joints, while relieving tissue inflammation. As a result, patients experience increased joint function, that allows them to get back to their daily activities pain free.

At Achieve Balance, we take a holistic approach to any type of pain you may be experiencing. While pain usually originates from tissue damage, many factors may influence the location and severity of your neck pain. Diet, stress, and increased activity can all play a role in aggravating pain.

A consultation will help us determine the factors influencing your neck pain, as well as provide you with an understanding of our treatment approach. After your consultation, the doctor will create a treatment plan tailored to your lifestyle. This plan will include a chiropractic adjustment specifically targeting your spinal region.


What Is Neck Pain?

Much like back pain, neck pain can stem from a number of causes, presenting itself in pain levels ranging from moderate to severe. Common neck pain can range from stiffness or tightness to a sharp, aching, and/or radiating pain. In all instances the nervous system is subject to stress, which causes diminished function.

Your neck supports your head, which supports some of the most important organs in your body. For this reason, it is important to take any type of neck pain seriously. When neck pain restricts your movements, your daily activities may suffer or become impaired.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it may be time to visit a chiropractor.

  • Your neck pain is accompanied by numbness or tingling.
  • You are experiencing headaches or migraines along with you neck pain.
  • Your neck pain has become severe enough to restrict normal movements.
  • Your neck pain has persisted over a number of days.

Neck pain can be due to a number of causes, but the most common include:

  • High impact injuries like car crashes can result in whiplash or other damage to the neck.
  • Strained muscles can easily be triggered due to overuse. Spending too much time at your desk or on your smartphone, or simply having bad posture can easily result in a strained neck.
  • Advancing age can cause neck pain as the cartilage in your neck begins to wear down. As your joints wear down, they can begin to form bone spurs, which can cause neck pain.
  • Nerve compression is caused by pinched nerves.
  • Increased stress or anxiety from daily life.

Neck pain can be reduced or fully relieved through a number of adjustments. One chiropractic method used to treat neck pain is a neck adjustment or cervical manipulation. A neck adjustment will relieve pressure and will realign the joints, but should only be performed by your chiropractor.

During your consultation, Dr. Phelps will determine the best care plan for your treatment. In addition to treatment, she will be able to provide you with natural remedies and tips such as nutritional changes, that you can implement into your daily lifestyle that will prevent or lessen future neck pain.

Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and non-addictive. Most patients feel immediate relief upon leaving their chiropractic appointment. Chiropractic care is one of the safest forms of treatment for patients with chronic pain, as treatment is provided without the risks of surgery or the use of prescription drugs.

Surgical procedures often require a recovery period, which results in downtime where you miss out on activities and work. Chiropractic treatment can offer almost instantaneous relief without having to take time off from daily life. After a procedure, patients are often prescribed medications for pain. Pain killers generally come in the form of opioid drugs, which are highly addictive. Patients who self-medicate using NSAID painkillers such as ibuprofen or aspirin often run the risk of overmedicating, which increases their risk for other health issues down the road.
