You want out of pain fast. Our team of chiropractors & massage therapists are here to help.
Your neck pain is undoubtedly disruptive & uncomfortable. Know that you are not alone. More than 10% of all Americans are currently experiencing neck pain right alongside you.
Chiropractic and massage therapy treatments are non-invasive therapies that are ideal for relieving pain and treating the underlying cause or condition leading to your discomfort. These remedies effectively ease your neck pain without the need for surgery or prescription painkillers.
When you receive a chiropractic adjustment for your neck pain from SE Portland Chiropractic, we use spinal adjustment techniques to repair ligament (collagen) tissue to correct joint pain and increase movement.
You may experience neck pain for one of the following reasons:
- You suffered an accident injury like whiplash
- You fell or tripped and the structural integrity of your neck was altered and ligament damage has occurred.
- You were exposed to a long period of neck and spinal stress, such as poor posture.
In these cases, the joints in your spine are attached to one another through ligament tissue. When this tissue suffers structural damage, you may experience painful joints. Essentially, your vertebrae and the surrounding structures lose function. Thus, movement occurs in a stressful and damaging manner.
The best way to correct faulty biomechanics that result from tissue damage is to restore proper joint motion with spinal manipulation. This is achieved through chiropractic spinal adjustment. A spinal adjustment restores mobility while also triggering reflexive relief from your pain.
Therapeutic massage & bodywork techniques support your healing
SE Portland Chiropractic is made up of more than just chiropractors. We work collaboratively with on-site massage therapists to provide comprehensive, non-invasive pain relief all in-house. We believe that bodywork techniques complement chiropractic treatments perfectly. Our chiropractors work on your joints and functional movement, while our massage therapists focus on reducing muscle tension.
Our practice also utilizes manual therapies such as trigger point therapy, cupping, and neuromuscular facilitation. These techniques target and ease neck pain, increase cervical spine mobility, and help relax the muscles.
In addition to our clinic support, we also provide you with at-home exercises, stretches, and other practices you can employ between visits. We also offer physical therapy techniques and dietary education to further facilitate your healing. Our self-care plans are customized to you, your injuries, your health concerns, and abilities. Our goal is to work with you to encourage long-term healing, pain-relief, and a solid recovery.
Obtain rapid headache relief with SE Portland Chiropractic
Second to back and neck pain, headaches are a common reason why individuals visit our clinic. Headaches are often caused by triggers in other parts of the body. If the muscles in the top of your neck become tight or irritated, this tension can trigger a headache. That is why you may find your headache disappears when joints in your neck are treated.
Headaches are triggered by both physical and environmental factors including:
- Illness or allergy
- Chemical exposure
- Overuse of painkillers
- Poor nutritional choices
- Muscle tension
- Neck and upper back spasms
- Neck problems (cervicogenic headache)
- Whiplash (post-traumatic headache)
- Stress and other emotional triggers
All of the issues listed above can cause migraines & tension headaches — all of which can have a negative impact on your daily life. There are many different types of migraines and headaches, which is why it is important to receive a comprehensive examination, obtain a diagnosis, and follow the recommended course of treatment.
If you are unsure why you are experiencing frequent or debilitating headaches, give us a call. Our thorough examinations, adjustments, massage therapies, and other supports will give you the immediate and long term pain relief you deserve.
NATURAL NECK AND UPPER BACK PAIN RELIEF
We provide holistic methods that resolve your upper back and neck pain
Your upper back pain or neck pain can result from a number of factors. Fortunately, many of these causes can be addressed and resolved with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and at-home self-care like proper nutrition and exercise.
Common causes of neck pain include:
- Prolonged use of non-ergonomically designed equipment
- Improper workstation setup
- Whiplash-type injuries
- Prolonged sitting.
- Physical inactivity
- Excessive repetitive neck motions.
- Excessive mental stress.
- Poor diet and nutritional practices
- Incomplete rehabilitation of past injuries
SE Portland Chiropractic uses both chiropractic and massage therapy techniques to resolve the issues listed above. We also support you in doing therapeutic work at-home so you can take proactive, daily steps to improve your overall health.
Here are some important tips we regularly share with patients that help heal and prevent damage to your neck and back:
Practice good lifting techniques & mind your posture
Proper posture, safe lifting techniques, and paying attention to ergonomics are all tactics we recommend to help our patients reduce back and neck injuries while at work or at home.
Increasing muscle strength, maintaining physical endurance, and keeping your heart healthy through exercise keep your spine and joints healthy, too.
Proper diet and nutrition
Fueling your body with the right nutrients leads to better performance, decreases the chance of injury or sickness, accelerates recovery time, and keeps you feeling your best.
Practice good stress management techniques
Along with proper nutrition and exercise, you should also use other techniques such as yoga, meditation, and self-care practices that reduce your stress. Since stress is most often carried in your back, neck and shoulders, you can reduce pain in these areas by controlling your stress levels.
