Neck Pain Treatment in Lynnwood

Dr. Belinda Eddy and Dr. Ewen Macaulay DC

Neck Pain Specialist

Neck pain can be the result of a sudden traumatic injury, such as a car accident, or a blow to the head. In addition, it could also be caused by chronic strain from activities like a long-term computer or cell phone use or poor posture. An awkward sleeping position might also lead to neck pain.

Treating neck pain depends on the underlying cause. Conventional treatments may involve physical therapy to strengthen muscles and improve posture, medications to reduce inflammation or pain, and in some cases, surgery.

Chiropractic care is a useful alternative treatment for neck pain that can be used in conjunction with other treatments. Chiropractors use hands-on techniques such as spinal manipulation and soft tissue therapy to help relieve tension and improve mobility in the area. Chiropractic neck adjustment is often used to relax muscles, improve the range of motion and reduce pain.
