Neck Pain Relief

Neck pain can be a debilitating condition that affects your day-to-day life. Whether you have stiff muscles or a pinched nerve, pain in your neck can make it difficult to move your head, sleep, or even stay focused. If you’ve been suffering from neck pain and conventional medicine hasn’t worked, holistiq treatment may be the answer.

What Causes Neck Pain?

One of the most common causes of neck pain is poor posture, which puts a strain on your neck muscles and ligaments. Another common factor is the repetitive motion of your neck, such as hunching over a computer for hours or cradling your neck while talking on the phone. Other significant factors could be an injury from a fall or an accident, such as whiplash, or strain caused due to sports.

Degenerative diseases such as arthritis or osteoporosis can also lead to chronic neck pain. Additionally, more serious underlying problems like infections around the spinal cord and tumors or growths on the spine can cause neck pain.

Symptoms

The most obvious symptom of neck pain is discomfort or pain in your neck. The level of discomfort can vary from a mild, dull ache to sharp, intense pain that radiates down your arm. Some people also experience stiffness in their neck, resulting in difficulty turning their heads. Chronic neck pain can take a toll on your everyday life, leading to depression, difficulty sleeping, and decreased quality of life.

Treatments for Neck Pain

Doctor treating neck injury

The best course of treatment for neck pain depends on its underlying cause and severity. In most cases, conservative therapies like ice or heat application, deep tissue massage, and physical therapy may be sufficient. Over-the-counter painkillers or prescription medication may also help alleviate the pain. In some cases, spinal injections may be necessary.

If these treatments don’t provide significant relief, a more invasive approach like surgery may be required. However, surgery isn’t always effective and can have risks that need to be discussed with your healthcare provider.

Preventive Measures For Neck Pain

Preventing neck pain begins with correcting your posture and avoiding repetitive motion. Ensure that your computer screen is at eye level and use a hands-free device while talking on the phone. Participating in activities that strengthen your neck muscles and incorporating gentle stretches throughout your day can also help prevent neck pain.

How Holistic Pain Management Can Help

Neck pain can be caused by several reasons, including poor posture, excessive use of electronic devices, injuries, and even stress. Many individuals seek out pain management services to alleviate these symptoms but traditional treatment options are not for everyone. If you are one of those individuals, seeking a holistic approach to pain management may be the right choice for you. In this section, we will thoroughly explain how our holistiq care combines different treatment methods to provide comprehensive neck pain relief to patients.

Anti-inflammatory food plan

Holistiq typically begins by recommending an anti-inflammatory food plan to reduce inflammation in the body. The diet is primarily composed of whole foods, healthy fats, and fresh fruits and vegetables. This approach has proven to be effective for individuals with chronic pain, including neck pain. By making changes in the diet, the chance of survival from such chronic pain is increased.

Virtual Physical Therapy

In addition to dietary changes, physical therapy is another popular pain treatment method recommended by Holistiq. Patients with neck pain can still receive physical therapy, even from a distance. Physical therapy can be done virtually with experienced trainers who cater to neck pain relief exercises and stretches. Physical therapists work closely with patients to help them reduce pain, improve range of motion, and decrease the need for medication intervention.

Medications (Oral & Topical)

Holistiq can prescribe oral or topical medications for pain relief if it’s necessary. The most common over-the-counter pain relief drugs include acetaminophen or NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen or supplements. Additionally, topical medications are pain-relieving creams primarily composed of capsaicin cream that can be applied directly to the affected area.

Health Coach

Trauma can have a significant effect on chronic pain. Some patients with severe neck pain can have soft components of trauma in their brains that need to be treated separately. A health coach, the quarterback of our team, helps address these soft components of trauma in the brain. They work closely with patients to reduce stress levels and identify any physical or emotional factors that may be causing their pain.

Interventions (Nerve Blockers, Surgeries – Worst Case Scenario)

Finally, you must understand that the use of nerve blockers, surgeries, or other types of invasive treatments is generally a last resort at Holistiq for neck pain. Should these treatments be necessary, we will ensure that you benefit comfortably and tailor a healing plan that works for you. Invasive treatments, such as surgery or nerve blockers are required for severe neck pain cases and can provide lasting relief.
