Neck Pain Treatment in Solana Beach
Neck Pain Treatment in Solana Beach, CA: Any abnormalities, inflammation or injury in the bones, ligaments or muscles of your neck can cause neck pain or stiffness. This can be due to daily activities, or injury. Neck pain is very common among adults and can occur in younger people as well. Annually about 15% of United States adults have neck pain that lasts at least one full day.
Neck Pain Can Become Chronic if Untreated
Neck pain is often located in one spot. In some cases, the pain can become constant or radiates into other body parts such as the shoulder and arms. Taking medication can mask the pain, but the root cause is not healed on its own. The neck is very vulnerable to injury. During a fall, car accident, sports activity or injury, the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced to move outside of their normal range. If the neck bones or cervical vertebrae are fractured, the spinal cord may also be damaged.
Neck pain can be minor and easily ignored, but it can still cause long term pain. Neck pain can potentially become excruciating to the point where it interferes with important daily activities. It can also lead to sleep issues, poor posture and other areas of the body becoming injured due to tension and over-compensation of the injured area. The pain might be brief, sporadic or turn into constant pain. In rare cases, neck pain can also be a signal of a serious underlying medical issue.
Symptoms of Chronic or Acute Neck Pain May Include:
- Mild reoccurring pain in the neck
- Delanyed pain or pain immediately after injury
- Tingling, numbness or weakness in the arms
- Stiff neck or throat pain
Stop Neck Pain without Medication Through Chiropractic Care

This can help alleviate pain as well as reduce tension, headaches and sharp shooting pain caused by pinched nerves. Our office is certified in the ART® (Active Release Techniques).
