Whether you’ve been hurt on the job, in the big game or in an auto accident, our skilled and knowledgeable team is here to help relieve your neck pain and other symptoms naturally and without the use of prescription medications.
Your neck, also known as the cervical spine is made up of seven small vertebrae that begin at the base of your skull. The neck not only supports the full weight of your head but it is also tasked with moving the head in every direction, leaving vulnerable to pain and injury.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
During your initial comprehensive chiropractic exam, our chiropractor in Tracy will gather information on your health history, current symptoms and any previous treatment. Once a diagnosis has been made, we will then recommend a treatment plan that utilizes chiropractic adjustments to target the root cause of your pain. Additional treatment methods may also be recommended to supplement your regular spinal adjustments including massage therapy and corrective exercises.
Corrective exercise can easily be used to help strengthen the neck and spine areas and restore range of motion.
Begin by sitting upright in a chair, reaching your arms up and clasping your hands comfortably behind your head. Bring your elbows forward in front and gently pull your head downward, with your chin coming towards your chest until you feel a good stretch in the back of the neck. Hold for 15 seconds and return to start. Repeat for 3 sets and continue exercise several times throughout the day.
Start by standing with legs together, grasping both ends of the band and step in the center of the band with one foot. Stand upright with feet together, holding your hands at about thigh height, raise your shoulders up towards your ears and back down. Repeat 25 times for a total of 3 sets.
