Best Ways to Relieve Neck Pain

A woman sitting at desk holding her neck in pain, schedule an appointment with a massage therapist for Dyer Neck Pain Therapy.

If you’ve ever woken up with a sore neck, you understand just how limiting neck pain can be. Neck pain refers to any pain or discomfort that happens through your neck. More time than not, neck pain radiates through the shoulders and even the head, too, leaving you feeling miserable and frustrated. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to relieve your neck pain and get back on track. 

At Motus Integrative Health, we take an integrated approach to healing chronic pain. We start with holistic services that utilize scientifically-backed strategies to deliver the results you are looking for. Here’s how a chiropractor can help you feel better, as well as some self-help strategies you can consider. 

Stretching

Stretching is one of the most basic ways to reduce pain. Sometimes, neck pain is muscular in nature. A sore neck can be due to any kind of neck strain or injury, including those caused by:

  • Whiplash
  • Poor posture
  • Improper sleeping position
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Excessive electronic use (particularly smartphones)

Neck pain might sneak up on you and catch you off-guard, especially if you have unhealthy habits. Once you feel that pain radiates through your neck, be gentle with yourself. Try some basic neck stretching exercises to gently loosen the muscles. Be sure to speak with our health professionals before trying any stretches. 

While seated in a chair, hold the bottom of your seat. Slowly pull your head to the side opposite from the side you are grabbing. Hold for a few seconds, then carefully return to a neutral position. Do the same with the opposite side. 

Massage

You can try an at-home massage, but we recommend visiting our massage therapists! Massage is one of the most effective ways to release tension in the neck since it improves circulation and relieves stress. Our therapists use several kinds of medical massages, which are firmer than you may be used to. We do Swedish massage, sports massage and more depending on the nature of your neck pain. 

Rest

Neck pain is no joke. No matter what’s causing it—be it arthritis or an injury—you need to take a break from strenuous activities, such as sports. Our team can help you manage the injury in the meantime. We offer a wide range of sports injury treatment, including physical rehabilitation. 

Chiropractic

Nothing beats the natural benefits of chiropractic. A chiropractic adjustment provides long-term health benefits as your pain gets relieved both in the present and in the long term. Our chiropractors are highly experienced in treating neck pain, as it’s one of our patients’ most common complaints. Chiropractic relieves issues originating in the spine, which is true for many individuals with neck pain. With chiropractic, you’re making an investment in your current and future health.
