Neck Pain Relief Q & A

The Wellness Center PDX

What Causes Neck Pain?

Common causes for neck pain involve muscle strains where a person may sit hunched over a computer screen or reading a book for long periods of time. They may also feel pain from gritting their teeth while sleeping. Other neck problems that can cause significant pain issues are accidents that create whiplash motions of the head and neck area, nerve compressions, joints that are worn out, and certain diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or cancer.

What Are Some Common Symptoms of Neck Pain?

People can experience a wide range of symptoms from neck pain. They may first show signs of a headache and feel pain that becomes worse when they hold their head in one specific place for long amounts of time, such as when they are at work. Then a person may feel spasms or feel a tightness in their neck muscles. Another neck pain symptom is when a person can barely move their head without experiencing difficulty.

When Should a Person Seek Treatment?

If a person has slight neck pain that happens occasionally and responds well to home treatment, they often won't seek out additional care. Yet a person should speak with their doctor if they have mild to severe pain that is chronic in nature or that hampers a person's abilities to perform daily activities. A person should also seek out treatment if the neck pain starts to move down their arms or their body.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Portland, OR
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Gabriel and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Portland, OR
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
