Your neck and spinal column include many bones, connective tissues and other structures to provide support for your body as well as accommodate the elements of your peripheral nervous system. Unfortunately, there are a variety of things that can affect these important components, including the muscles, connective tissues and cartilage of the neck.
Chronic neck pain can take a variety of forms and range in severity. Even if the discomfort seems minimal at first in the long term it can start to affect your overall quality of life and potentially lead to other musculoskeletal complications.
Here at the Health and Wellness Clinic in Layton, Utah, our Dr. Daniel Hendricks, D.C. and Dr. Spencer Rollins, D.C. have years of experience helping to restore a quality of life for chronic neck pain sufferers.
The first step in developing an effective treatment plan calls for comprehensive diagnostics to determine the nature and severity of the problem. Many cases of chronic neck pain can be related to conditions such as degenerative disc disease, neck muscle strain, a herniated disc, pinched nerve or neck injury like whiplash.
There are a variety of treatments which can help treat chronic neck pain, including manual or instrument-assisted adjustments, daily stretching exercises and massage. Our chiropractors will help you understand any other potential treatments to restore your comfort and general quality of life.
