Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment From Gateway Family Chiropractic

If you are experiencing neck pain, you are not alone. Neck pain is one of the most common complaints of people seeking chiropractic care. Also referred to as the cervical spine, the neck is remarkably complex and flexible. The neck is also quite prone to injury. Poor posture, sudden impacts, degenerative diseases, old age – there are many different things that can lead to neck injury and neck pain. Fortunately, at Gateway Family Chiropractic, we can provide effective neck pain treatment that can help you get back to leading the life you love.

What Causes Neck Pain?

There are a number of different causes of neck pain, including:

Poor Posture and Repetitive Motions

Years of poor posture or thousands of repetitive motions can take their toll on the neck. Sometimes the damage can occur relatively quickly, too. Today many children and teens complain of neck pain caused by staring at handheld screens for hours on end. Correcting poor posture and retraining the body to make healthier movements can greatly reduce neck pain from these sources.

Sports Injuries and Auto Accidents

Both sports injuries and auto accidents typically involve sudden impacts that can cause neck injuries. Auto accidents in particular can lead to whiplash, a painful injury resulting from the whipping of the head after impact.

Old Age and Degenerative Diseases

As people age, they are more prone to degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis. These diseases, as well as the wear and tear that life brings, can cause neck pain.

How to Tell if Neck Pain Requires Medical Care

Neck pain is incredibly common. Research tells us that 15% of people experience at least a day of neck pain each year. So, when is neck pain serious enough to require medical care?

Twisting your neck the wrong way, spraining it or injuring it in some other way may be painful, but often minor injuries can be treated with over the counter pain medication and rest. However, if your pain persists for more than a few days, you should seek help from your chiropractor.

Neck pain that results in numbness, loss of sensation, difficulty gripping objects or weakness should be checked out by a doctor. Such symptoms could indicate a problem with the spinal cord or nerve problems, so it is important to seek medical care to catch any serious problems early on.

How Chiropractic Care Helps

Chiropractic adjustments are a preferred treatment method for neck pain because they get to the source of the problem. Neck adjustments align your cervical spine to alleviate pressure from nerves and discs, improve blood flow to the area, and can aid the body’s natural healing process. Massage therapy can also help to alleviate pain and stiffness, and can make it easier for adjustments to remain in place.

After 4 visits the pain has dramatically reduced and is now at a 2/10 from a 10/10 on a pain scale. Now I come in one a month for maintenance and have no complains!"

On a regular basis here recently I encounter a rib problems where they were pushing on a nerve to where it became hard to breath I couldn't deal sith the symptoms.

  • "I came to this office a year ago with debilitating hip problems. I was so missed up it took about 6 months to get it to hold. After my first appointment, I no longer was needing pain medication. The most amazing part about this office is that Dr. Dave and Dr. Mike really take the time to know what was happening in my body. They recommend much needed supplements that helped in me get my life back. I could not function before I started coming here and will always be grateful for their knowledge and expertise in their field. THANK YOU GATEWAY.

  • "Our Infant, Merrick, was placed with ear infection, congestion, and cough. Antibiotics were not helping and made things worse. He began vomiting. We were all exhausted & frustrated. We couldn't find anything that worked! We brought him to Gateway Chiropractic in Loveland. With steady treatments his ear infection and other symptoms went away. He is healthy and now growing without ear infection complications. This was a blessing for our baby and our family! We are so grateful!"
    C. Muth - Loveland, CO
  • "After a thorough and thoughtful review of the x-rays of my back and hips, Dr. Hughes adjusted me from my head to my knees. Yep, my knees! I was able to kneel down on the floor with my kids for the first time in years with no stiffness or achy knees. During the adjustment I felt unhurried and relaxed. I left with more range of motion in my neck, shoulders... & knees. Thank you! I recommend Dr. Hughes as a qualified and caring chiropractor!"
    Richard T. - Loveland, CO
  • "The staff is amazing. The practitioners were more than happy to try and treat my severe neck pain and limited range of motion. I could hardly move my head and upper back 2 weeks ago. After a series of x-rays to I.D. the problem, some other quantitative testing, both chiropractors were able to treat my PROBLEM in addition to diminishing my SYMPTOMS. After 2 weeks, I have full range, hardly any pain, slept better and more energy. I would HIGHLY recommend beginning ANY un-wellness at this clinic prior to MD approach to medication. THANKS FOR MAKING ME BETTER!"

  • "Drs' Mike and David are competent, concerned, and caring chiropractors. I am impressed with the tables they use to administer adjustments. The dropping mechanism makes the adjustment so focused and exact. I feel less pain and have more flexibility and range of motion now than before I began my treatments."
    Diane L. - Berthoud, CO
  • "I have severe arthritis. The pain getting worse & I thought I might need to have a hip replacement. Even after the first adjustment my hip felt better and I could finally sleep all night without waking in pain. Now I have almost no pain most nights and I am walking without limping. I am now doing yoga and Zumba, two activities I ahd stayed away from because my hip pain just wouldn't allow it! I had never gone to a Chiropractor before, now I don't think I will ever stop!"
