Chiropractic for Neck Pain
Care for Neck Pain in Yuba City & Surrounding Areas
Do you often experience stiffness or discomfort around the neck area? You’re not alone.
Acute or chronic neck pain affects many people around the world. In many instances, this is caused by poor posture and sleeping positions, falling, or injuries from sport or whiplash. Another major cause of most neck pain issues is our sedentary and technology-heavy lifestyle which puts a great deal of stress on the joints, muscles, and ligaments in the neck, especially when we hunch on our computers or sit for prolonged periods.
Who Are We?
Dr. Gurj Kalay is thoroughly trained to diagnose and address a wide range of neck pain conditions to bring quick relief and restore long-term health to the neck and the entire body.
As the preferred chiropractor in the Yuba-Sutter area, Dr. Kalay will be able to assess your pain and provide a solution you’ll love.
What We Do for Neck Pain & Injuries
When you visit our practice for neck pain, our chiropractor, Dr. Gurj Kalay will do a thorough examination to diagnose the specific cause of your neck pain. We’ll evaluate your spine as a whole, note its curvature and alignment, and feel for muscle spasms. Besides the physical exam, we will review your past medical history and order imaging tests (e.g., an x-ray or MRI) where necessary to help diagnose the exact cause of your neck (cervical) pain.
All these steps will help us to design a customized treatment plan to treat your neck-related issues. We use a combination of spinal manipulation, joint mobilization, muscle release techniques, therapeutic exercises, and other techniques to loosen up the joints of the cervical vertebrae in the neck and snap your spine back into alignment. By restoring mobility in your joints through chiropractic care, you get to address the source of the pain instead of treating the symptoms only.
Long-Term Care for Neck Pain
For most people, neck pain goes away after a few days or weeks.
But there are those whose neck pain persists for months and years and may require a long-term commitment to ongoing chiropractic care. For instance, patients who experience neck pain due to sports injuries, auto accidents, or arthritis may need long-term care. Working with your Yuba City chiropractor can help ensure your musculoskeletal system’s continued health for improved quality of life beyond keeping you free from pain.
