Neck Pain FAQs from Ringer Chiropractic
If neck and back pain are getting the best of you, Ringer Chiropractic in Tracy CA can help.

The following FAQs can give you greater insight into the causes and symptoms of neck pain and how chiropractic care can help with neck pain treatment.
Why do I have neck pain?
You may have neck pain for any number of reasons. A recent car crash, sports injury or slip and fall could have caused spinal misalignments or neck injuries that are causing pain. Chronic conditions like osteoarthritis can cause pain due to the deterioration of bones and joints. Poor posture is one of the greatest culprits of neck pain due to strained muscles in your neck. After a thorough evaluation, your Tracy CA chiropractor can pinpoint the source of your pain so you can get treatment.
What other symptoms does neck pain cause?
In addition to neck pain, you may experience numbness in your arms or legs, back pain, headaches, and restricted mobility. Your symptoms may be ongoing or come and go at different intervals.
When should I seek chiropractic care?
If you’re experiencing debilitating pain, seek help from your Tracy CA chiropractor right away for diagnosis of your condition and neck pain relief. If your pain comes and goes, but is getting progressively worse each time it returns, see a chiropractor. If your neck pain is accompanied by numbness or weakness in your arms and legs, come to our clinic for a diagnosis. Chiropractic care offers a safe, non-invasive means of getting neck pain relief.
How can chiropractic care help with neck pain?
If your pain is due to misaligned cervical vertebrae in your spine, we’ll use spinal adjustments to correct the problem and reduce pain. Auto accidents, sports injuries, and slip and falls are more likely to cause misalignment issues.
Therapeutic exercises and massage therapy are also effective in providing neck pain relief. Therapeutic stretches and other rehab exercises can loosen tense muscles and reduce inflammation to restore your range of motion. We’ll teach you exercises you can do at home to help speed up your recovery.
Massage therapy improves blood flow to the injured areas to promote faster healing. If your pain is caused by poor posture, we’ll teach you ways to improve your posture and work ergonomics to avoid a relapse of your condition. By adopting a healthy living lifestyle, you can reduce your risk of future injuries.
