Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

The neck’s biomechanics make it vulnerable to dysfunction and pain. Sitting a lot or suffering an accident cause the vertebrae to subluxate — or move out of position — and pinch nerves, leading to pain and discomfort. Reasons for neck pain may include:

  • Osteoarthritis — degeneration of connective tissue that happens with time
  • Injury or accident — such as a car wreck in which your head jerked forward and backward suddenly
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Bulging cervical vertebrae
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • Stress and tension

What are the symptoms of neck pain?

You may experience discomfort in your neck — finding it hard to turn it side to side or up and down. Neck pain may also manifest as general pain and stiffness.

Injury to your neck doesn’t only affect the immediate head and neck area either. You may end up with tingling and numbness in your arms, upper back, and shoulders due to pinched nerves.I

How is neck pain diagnosed?

Dr. Lobacz does a thorough physical and neurological exam. He also reviews your medical history and any recent events that may have prompted your current discomfort. He’ll observe your range of motion, physical condition, and posture and will note movements that cause the pain. Any spinal misalignments, curves, and spasms also inform diagnosis.

How is neck pain treated?

Dr. Lobacz treats misalignments of the vertebrae in the neck and upper back with adjustments. These realign the spinal column so as to free up nerves and relieve discomfort associated with your neck pain.

A neck adjustment, or a cervical manipulation, involves applying pressure to the joints of the neck. Dr. Lobacz uses his hands to restore range of motion, improve spinal mobility, and increase the movement of adjoining muscles. You should notice an improvement in your ability to turn and tilt your head, as well as a reduction of pain and stiffness.

Research demonstrates that spinal manipulation provides significant pain-level improvements in people with chronic neck pain. It usually takes more than one visit to alleviate pain and keep you pain-free in the future. Dr. Lobacz puts you on a treatment plan based on the cause of your neck pain and your goals for prevention.
