What causes Neck Pain?

Many things in life including stress, injury and internal health problems can cause neck pain. More people in society are spending long hours in front of their computer monitor or in front of the television without paying proper attention to their posture and the strain it can have on their necks.

Your neck is one of the weakest points of the spine with a very intense job. It holds up your heavy 8-10 pound head on the curved tip of the spine and is in constant motion.

There is a cause and a cure to your neck pain. Dr. Jere will find both, and he will get you on the road to a strong and pain-free neck.

Locating the exact source of the problem

For effective treatment, it is important that the exact source of the pain is isolated in order to effectively treat it.

Dr. Jere uses diagnostic tests to get to the root cause of your neck pain. He studies your medical history, a detailed questionnaire of your symptoms and lifestyle and takes low-dose x-rays as needed. If you have MRIs, he will review these. A principal tool Dr. Jere uses is Applied Kinesiology, colloquially known as muscle testing.

The importance of muscles in solving Neck Pain

Applied Kinesiology is a type of diagnosis that uses muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to determine how a patient’s body is functioning. Muscles are the stabilizing forces for bones, including the vertebrae of your spine. In muscle testing Dr. Jere can find the muscle systems that are not doing what they should be.

Once the exact cause of your neck pain has been isolated, Dr. Jere applies his tools to fix it. Sometimes it can be as easy as an adjustment or two, and other times a course of treatment might be needed.

Effective treatment for relieving Neck Pain

Chiropractic adjustments are extremely successful in handling neck pain as well as the entire body. Dr. Jere will make sure you get the treatment you need for fast and lasting relief of your neck pain. He uses a variety of techniques to help his patients.

Here are some of the treatments Dr. Jere uses to help handle neck pain:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments bring motion back to stuck joints, reducing nervous system disruption and allowing the body to heal and return to normal. There are a variety of methods of adjustment in existence, named by the chiropractor that developed the adjustment (such as Gonstead or Palmer technique). Dr. Jere uses whichever will work best for the individual. He makes sure that the adjustment is acceptably gentle for the patient.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is proven to painlessly stimulate tissue growth and repair. The cold laser accelerates healing, and decreases inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional assistance is key to full relief of pain and recovery from neck pain or any spinal-associated pain. The combination of chiropractic adjustments and nutrition is very powerful. While the chiropractic adjustments open up the nervous system flows, proper nutrition supplies the necessary nutrients needed for full healing.

Dr. Jere has extensive training and experience in nutritional counseling. He gives specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and diet choices to relieve your neck pain and return you to optimum health.

Tips for preventing Neck Pain

Nearly seven in ten adults develop neck pain at some point in their lives. Most neck pain is associated with poor posture on top of age-related wear and tear. Here are a few tips for preventing neck pain:

  • Do not sit in the same position for long periods of time. Do not hunch on the computer. A proper chair with arm rests and a supportive back can help you maintain good posture while remaining comfortable. And if you have to stay in this position for many hours, make a practice of stretching regularly.
  • Position your computer or television monitor in front of you to avoid twisting your neck when viewing it. These should be positioned at close to eye level or just above eye level
  • Do not carry a lot of weight on one side of your body. Always favor back packs over one-sided bags or any bag that goes over the shoulder
  • Warm up and stretch before doing any exercise
  • Invest in a good pillow and mattress
  • Stretch your neck if you are sitting for long periods
  • Try to practice self massage before you start feeling pain, and if you can afford it have someone massage you. It is a good idea to get regular massages and chiropractic adjustments.
