What is the best treatment for neck pain?
Neck pain is a common medical issue that most people will probably experience at some point in their lives. Treating neck pain can be tricky, as there can be many different causes, and various treatment options may have to be tried out to find what works best.
Treating neck pain can sometimes be as simple as learning how to adjust your posture or finding a more supportive chair, to more intensive interventions like physical therapy or a brace. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we have services and treatments available that can address the various causes of neck pain, including massages, chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and more. Some people may need a combination of certain treatments in order to achieve the best results. Even if your neck pain is mild or not interfering too much with your daily life, it’s important to identify the cause and adjust your lifestyle so as to mitigate risk and not put further strain on or injure your neck.
How can I permanently relieve my neck pain?
Whether or not you can permanently relieve your neck pain will have to do with factors specific to you, including the cause and severity of your neck pain, your health history, as well as various lifestyle factors that can influence your neck pain. In some cases, you may be able to permanently relieve your neck pain by adjusting your lifestyle, including improving flexibility, your posture, the kind of chair you sit in, or the types of shoes you wear for consistent support, for example. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we offer various treatments for neck pain that, when done consistently, have relieved many of our clients of their chronic neck pain. It all starts with determining what the best course of action is for you, and following through with consistent treatments and approaches.
In some cases, you may have to manage your neck pain over a longer period of time in order to see results. This doesn’t mean that living with pain should be part of your life, or something you should just accept. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, our goal is to have you feeling better as soon as possible, so you can participate in daily life activities to the fullest extent. We will work with you to determine the best course of action.
Is there a specialist I should consider seeing for my neck pain?
There are various physicians and specialists that can address neck pain, including primary care practitioners, surgeons, physiotherapists, and more. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we have an array of specialists on hand, from a chiropractor to physical therapists that can help address your neck pain. It all starts with a consultation with us, where we’ll get to know your personal health history as well as the symptoms and onset of your neck pain, and what other treatments you may have already tried. If you need other services or need to see a different type of specialist, we can be sure to help you find the right information for next steps.
What can I do to further prevent my neck pain?
Preventing further neck pain will usually depend on the cause of your neck pain as well as the advice of your specialist, but in general, it’s good to try and avoid or diminish the activity that may be causing or contributing to the neck pain, such as vigorous exercise, a poor posture, or sleeping in a certain position. If your neck pain is related to your posture and sitting for long periods of time, for example, you may have to get a new, more supportive chair, or make sure you stand frequently enough throughout the day and take a break with either stretching or walking around briefly.
