There are a number of factors that can cause neck pain, from mild strains due to bad posture, to a spine condition or injury. Depending on the situation, many instances of neck pain usually go away on their own with time and conservative at home treatment. However, if the pain becomes persistent or results from a car accident, fall or other forms of trauma, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. The chiropractors at NH Chiros, Dr. Ken George and Dr. Nickolas Rost in Stratham, NH, offer a number of treatment options for neck and back pain relief.
Neck Pain Relief and Treatment in Stratham, NH
Muscle strains are one of the most common causes of neck pain. Factors like bad posture, and leading a predominantly sedentary lifestyle can lead to neck pain over time. Whiplash, which results from a sudden backwards and forward jerking motion of the head, causes mild to severe neck pain and other symptoms depending on the extent of the damage. Whiplash is most common from rear end collision car accidents, but can also result from trauma while playing a contact sport or from other forms of violent physical impact. Other common causes of neck pain include osteoarthritis, a herniated disc in the cervical spine or spinal conditions like cervical stenosis.
Chiropractic treatment and adjustments can help to manage symptoms and offer relief for the discomfort associated with muscle strains and other spinal issues. For mild to moderate pain caused by a temporary soft tissue injury or muscle strain from lifestyle factors like slouching over a computer or sleeping in an awkward, your chiropractor might recommend conservative treatments like ice, heat, rest, and massage. It is import to seek treatment after a car accident or injury, even if there are no initial symptoms, to get an accurate diagnosis.

Back pain should never be a normal part of your everyday life. Find out how we can help.
You wouldn’t believe how many people have to put up with chronic back pain. It’s a problem that many people suffer through in silence. Who knows, a friend, loved one or even your cubicle mate may be suffering. Perhaps you are the one that’s been dealing with back pain for far too long. Our Stratham, NH, chiropractors Dr. Ken George and Dr. Nicholas Rost believe that pain shouldn’t become the norm.
So, how exactly can getting chiropractic care in Stratham, NH, help your back pain?
Spinal manipulation is just one of the ways to provide relief for those dealing with mild-to-moderate back pain. This is a completely safe and effective way to treat your discomfort.
What is spinal manipulation?
Perhaps you’ve heard of it before but you aren’t quite sure what it is. This therapy requires applying a controlled amount of force over the spinal joints. Our chiropractors may apply pressure by using their hands or with special instruments. By applying this specific amount of force we can help to realign the joints in the spine, take pressure off these areas, improve blood flow and healing, reduce pain and enhance range-of-motion and function.
What other ways can I treat my back pain?
While you will continue to come in for spinal manipulation therapy whenever recommended, there are certain things that we will also advise you to do on a regular basis such as making ergonomic changes at work, exercising regularly or changing the type of exercises you perform to accommodate your back problems.
We may also recommend heat/ice therapy, massage, or even dietary changes to help you lose weight (if being overweight could be causing or exacerbating your back pain).
