Neck Pain

If you are experiencing pain in and around your neck, you likely want to find an effective neck pain treatment to eliminate the discomfort. Contact Discover Life Chiropractic in Tacoma to make an appointment with Dr. Hendrickson or Dr. Devin for an assessment.


Why Neck Pain Occurs

There are several ways that your neck can become injured, leading to discomfort and pain. If you use more than one pillow when you sleep, your neck may be curved throughout the session, leading to overstretching of the muscles. If you perform repetitive motions involving your neck and head, pain is likely to occur over time. If you look down at a cell phone or tablet regularly, you may experience pain in the base of your neck due to the weight of your head. Neck pain happens when someone is involved in a vehicular accident or if they experience trauma involving an injury to the head.

How To Alleviate Neck Pain

When your neck hurts, it is important to stop performing any activities that could exacerbate the symptoms. Instead, it is best to rest as much as possible, so your neck has time to heal properly. For extreme or constant pain, contact our chiropractors for an assessment. Discomfort can be relieved in the short term by applying heat to the affected area. Use a heating pad on the area for up to twenty minutes before removing it for at least twenty more minutes and then reapply as needed.

What Happens During A Neck Pain Treatment Session

Our chiropractors will evaluate your condition to determine the range of motion of your head and neck. Be sure to let us know of any pain you experience during the testing process. In most cases, spinal adjustments are performed to aid in the healing of the neck muscles.

When the spine is manipulated, it allows for the easing of pressure placed on the joints in the body. When this happens, blood flow becomes unrestricted, allowing for the flow of essential nutrients to circulate in and around the injury, helping the recovery process. In addition to the adjustments, physical therapy, massage, or electric stimulation of the area may be used by our practitioners to reduce your pain.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I have been going to Discover Life Chiropractic for 5 years. I am an athlete who went in with low back pain and some knee issues. It did take time but to this day I do not have low back pain or knee pain as long as I am staying healthy with periodic adjustments. Dr. Dave knows his stuff and is attentive to concerns (if you are feeling something make sure you tell him). I feel so aligned and feel like I am functioning at a high level each day. If I can, I like to use Dr. Daves partnering doctor for extremity adjustments (feet, arms, legs) he is exceptional especially with those! Like with anything you have to be consistent, can't just go 3 times and expect to be healed. Hope this was helpful! Best, Alex

    So... I have had back pain all my life and neck pain from a car accident causing severe and frequent migraines. Other chiropractors just did a "quick fix" that lasted a couple days at most. This chiropractor, David, has practically eliminated my neck pain and migraines and my back pain had decreased tons. Now usually when I have pain it is because I have bad posture or I need to stretch or build up muscle to keep my spine in place. I understand he can only do so much but to be pain free you have to put in work also. WITH ALL THAT SAID, the pain has gone down from constant to occasional and from severe pain to mostly mild and we are still working on it. Would recommend the chiropractic service there to anyone.

    I have experienced fairly sever neck pain for the last few years. Have been to my doctor, had ultrasounds etc. Nothing was working. I started going to David at Discover life a few months ago as a last resort to deal with the pain and the difference is amazing even with just this short amount of time. He explains everything very clearly and even has me doing stretching and work while at home. His staff is great and always friendly when I come in. I would highly recommend Discover Life Chiropractic.
