Neck Pain can range from dull and throbbing to nagging and nasty. It can make even the simplest movements feel impossible -- turning your head, nodding, even finding a comfortable position to rest your head when lying down. Neck pain may or may not be an indicator of a more serious problem, but it can certainly throw a wrench into your day's plans. Dr. Jeff Jenkins of Jenkins Chiropractic in San Jose, California can help banish this constant, unwanted companion.

Neck Pain Q & A

What are the most common causes of neck pain?

A number of factors can be causing your neck pain:

  • Muscle strain: Poor posture, repetitive movements, overuse
  • Wear and tear on your joints: Arthritis, normal aging
  • Compressed nerves -- Injury, bone spurs
  • Disease -- Cancer, meningitis

Some causes are more serious than others, but all can be effectively managed through chiropractic care. Simple joint manipulation, spinal adjustments, massage and exercise are all treatments that can alleviate or at least lessen chronic neck pain. All can be performed right at Jenkins Chiropractic, allowing you to leave after your appointment with increased range of motion and less discomfort.


What are the symptoms of chronic neck pain?

Neck pain is, of course, one symptom of this chronic condition, but so are headaches, stiffness, tightness, decreased range of movement and muscle spasms in and around the affected area. This can make driving difficult or nearly impossible. It can make caring for your children a hardship. Even daily chores such as cleaning, shopping, or gardening may become impossibilities when your neck is compromised. If you suffer from this nagging disability, you need relief quick. Jenkins Chiropractic can help.


What is the standard, chiropractic treatment for neck pain?

Neck pain responds well to chiropractic care. The simple act of manipulating the joints and muscles of the upper spinal column go a long way toward alleviating neck pain. Physical therapy can help, so can exercise performed both in the office and at home. When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Jenkins to address pain in your neck area, you may experience these types of treatments. Dr. Jenkins may also provide you with a list of activities to avoid, such as sitting for long periods of time without taking breaks, slouching, or overusing the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of your neck area. You'll learn easy exercises that you can do at home or at the office to help strengthen the muscles of your neck and to prevent the same condition from occurring on a regular basis.
