Neck Pain

The neck is one of the hardest working parts of your body. This link between your head and the rest of your body performs a difficult job and does so with a small amount of muscle mass. Having a healthy neck is imperative to your daily life and activities. At Cuttler Chiropractic serving Wynantskill, North and East Greenbush, Rensselaer, and the surrounding areas, we make it our top priority to help you maintain optimum neck health. Keep reading to find out how we can help you with neck pain.


What Causes Neck Pain?

The neck is made up of many muscles, ligaments, and discs. When these tissues or discs become irritated or inflamed, it can cause you problems. Many things can contribute to this inflammation or irritation. Overuse of the muscles is a huge contributor to neck pain. When these muscles become fatigued, they cannot relax, and will stay in a constant state of spasm. More serious forms of neck pain can result from issues with the intervertebral discs.

Some symptoms of neck problems include a stiff neck, limited range of motion, pain, soreness, tenderness, or radiating pain that moves down into the shoulders, arms, and even fingers. Occasional neck pain is not uncommon. If your pain persists, however, it may be time to seek out chiropractic care.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

One of the big challenges associated with neck pain, especially with chronic neck pain, is finding a way to manage that pain drug-free. Often times, the medications which are used to treat the pain have very harsh side effects or can mask the problem which is not beneficial to the patient’s health. Chiropractic care offers a drug-free option for neck pain relief.

The most common types of neck pain, which is caused by tight muscles, often responds quickly to chiropractic manipulation. Manipulation is very effective at loosening these tight muscles to relieve inflammation.

More serious neck pain issues can also be treated through spinal adjustments. During spinal adjustment, Dr. Cuttler will manipulate the spine and surrounding tissues in order to improve the function of your neck as well as to increase blood flow and decrease inflammation in the neck which causes you pain.

Other Benefits of Chiropractic Care

In addition to pain management, chiropractic care is often very helpful in treating stress and contributing to the overall wellness of patients.
