Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain in Boston, MA

Your neck, or cervical spine, is very delicate and is home to many nerves, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels and soft tissues. Your cervical spine holds the spinal cord, which sends messages to your brain to control different parts of your body.

At Charles Street Family Chiropractic, Dr. Quigley understands that an injured or strained cervical spine can cause great bodily discomfort. Chronic neck pain can cause radiating pain down your arm, which may move along to the arms and fingers and cause numbness or tingling in the area. Sometimes, degenerative changes may occur in the cervical spine, also causing chronic neck pain. For people who have sustained car, sports or work-related injuries, whiplash, or an unexpected jerk or movement, could be the culprits of your neck pain and injury. Whiplash causes the muscles in your neck to tighten, often resulting in other symptoms such as headaches and shoulder pain. MDs may prescribe medication that treats the symptoms, but not the root of your neck pain. At our Boston chiropractic clinic, we address the cause of your pain and treat your whiplash or other neck injuries with our expert chiropractic services.

Causes of neck pain

  • Cervical stenosis
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Muscle strain degeneration
  • Osteoarthritis
  • A sprain of the muscles, ligaments or tendons in your cervical spine
  • Car accidents
  • Repeated carrying of heavy items
  • Sleeping positions

Most minor ligament or tendon injuries in the neck will subside with proper care, including rest, ice or heat application and rehabilitation, such as chiropractic care and physical therapy.
