Neck Pain & Stiffness Treatment


As society increasingly relies on technology, it’s normal for many of us to spend hours on our computers or mobile devices. This sedentary lifestyle can put unnecessary stress on our necks and spines. A common issue that arises because of this is neck pain and stiffness, especially after a stressful day at work or from browsing social media for prolonged periods.

You may also deal with other issues, such as the neck or cervical spine weakening due to poor posture. It may also tighten because of whiplash or wear out due to age. A severe neck injury, in particular, can prevent you from doing daily tasks such as driving safely since moving your neck may trigger intense pain and discomfort.

Typically, cold packs can help relieve a stiff neck. Changing your pillow and adjusting your sleeping position can also provide relief from discomfort. However, serious neck pain and stiffness may eventually become debilitating and chronic. There are only so many at-home remedies you can try before you’ll need expert care to properly address your condition, like the kind we offer at LifeClinic.

Chiropractic care or physical therapy is the best way to manage neck pain and spine problems. Our experienced physical therapists and chiropractors are well-equipped to help you in this area. LifeClinic aims to restore, maintain, and optimize your neck and spine’s mobility and function. After a thorough examination, we’ll identify the root cause of your problems to provide the appropriate treatment for your condition.

At LifeClinic, our team is dedicated to providing relief and helping you manage discomfort. We’ll ensure you get the best chiropractic, physical therapy, or rehabilitation service for a full and speedy recovery.


Treat Neck Pain & Stiffness with Chiropractic Care & Physical Therapy

LifeClinic uses different methods to help you manage pain and discomfort. Here’s how our skilled chiropractors and physical therapists help you recover from neck pain.

Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain and Stiffness

Our expert chiropractors will recommend a specific type of treatment for your cervical spine. The types of neck conditions we treat include:

Chronic neck pain –  Persistent neck pain is usually a sign that your cervical spine needs better support. We can perform spinal adjustments to ease discomfort and improve your spine’s mobility and strength.

Cervical muscle strain –  Neck muscle strain may develop gradually due to poor posture or can result from whiplash due to a car accident or sports injury. Our treatments at LifeClinic can help improve your muscle’s healing process and relieve tension around the affected area.

Cervical degeneration – Cervical degeneration, also known as spinal osteoarthritis, is a condition where the facet joints and spinal discs break down. At LifeClinic, we offer treatments that reduce inflammation and restore your range of motion to minimize neck pain.

Manage Your Pain Through Chiropractic Treatment

Our treatment approach may vary depending on your condition and medical history. We perform the following: 

Cervical Spine Adjustments – This treatment is also called Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT). It involves using specialized tables and chairs to locate and adjust problem areas.

Cervical Spine Mobilization – This approach is characterized by the absence of cracking sounds or cavitation that usually occurs during CMT. Cervical spine mobilization involves gently moving or pulling the neck to stretch the cervical spine and reduce tightness.

Physical Therapy for Neck Pain

Our physical therapists will ask about your medical history and lifestyle to identify the appropriate treatment. Several imaging tests may also be conducted to ensure an accurate diagnosis.

Among the many benefits you can look forward to from our treatment methods include:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improved posture
  • Restored mobility
  • Strengthened cervical spine

Reduce Pain and Stress with Physical Therapy

Our team can perform a combination of active and passive therapy, depending on your needs.

Active Physical Therapy –  We teach you corrective exercises designed to strengthen your neck tissues and improve your posture. This can also include stretching activities that target muscles that support your cervical spine.

Passive Physical Therapy –  Passive physical therapy includes hot or cold therapies and deep tissue work that can reduce swelling or loosen stiff neck muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

A stiff neck is usually caused by muscle strain. People usually get this strain from awkward sleeping positions, slouching or poor posture, and persistent stress. It can also be caused by injuries or conditions such as arthritis and repetitive movements such as turning your head from side to side.

Your neck may hurt because of pinched nerves, whiplash, degenerative conditions, or a herniated disc. It’s best to seek the advice of our physical therapists to determine the root cause of your pain and discomfort.

Mild neck pain and stiffness often subside and heal on their own within a few days. However, performing home remedies like applying ice packs can also provide faster pain relief.

Moreover, you can alternate between using cold and warm compresses to reduce swelling. Ample rest and a firm mattress or pillow that provides proper neck support when sleeping are necessary for pain management.

We also recommend speaking with our physical therapists, who can teach you corrective exercises and perform the appropriate spinal adjustments to relieve you of neck pain and stiffness.

Chiropractors and physical therapists can recommend the right treatment to help address neck pain and stiffness. These techniques effectively restore your neck’s mobility and function.
