Neck Pain Q & A

What is neck pain?

Your neck connects your head to your torso and consists of ligaments, muscles, tendons, bones, your spinal cord, and other tissues. If any such tissues become worn down or damaged, neck discomfort can result. Neck pain treatments at Dr. Hipp’s Chiropractic can reduce your discomfort. 

What can it feel like to have neck pain?

Neck pain may appear right above your shoulders or even in your head. Its symptoms range in severity from mild to severe and can present as:

  • Dull aching
  • Burning discomfort
  • Sharp pain
  • Weakness
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Headaches
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Radiating pain
  • Tingling
  • Weakness

Treating neck pain naturally helps restore ideal musculoskeletal functioning, allowing you to resume typical daily activities without bothersome discomfort.

What can contribute to neck pain?

Neck pain may result from:

  • Age-related wear
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Disc herniation
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowed spinal canal)
  • Whiplash
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Scoliosis
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive motions
  • Text neck

Finding the root cause of the discomfort is vital to determining the most appropriate treatment.

How does my specialist diagnose the cause of neck pain?

Diagnosing the cause of neck pain often involves a physical exam and a review of your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle habits, and medications. Your Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic provider may recommend nerve testing, blood tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures before customizing a treatment plan. 

How is neck pain treated?

Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic offers holistic neck pain treatments, including:

Physical therapy

Your provider completes targeted exercises and stretches that optimize tissue healing and reduce neck pain. Your specialist teaches you exercises to complete at home between in-office sessions to minimize your discomfort and reduce the risk of re-injury.

Chiropractic adjustments

Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic offers chiropractic adjustments that realign your spine to eliminate many causes of neck pain. The practice specializes in Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP), a research-backed method that restores ideal spinal curvature. The treatment combines physiology, geometry, biology, physics, and anatomy to treat the root causes of neck discomfort.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy uses manual pressure and manipulation to relieve soreness, reduce muscle tension, ease nerve pressure, and promote natural healing. 


Traction stretches your spine and improves its alignment using manual manipulation or a specialized machine. Traction reduces spinal cord pressure, alleviates neck pain, and eases pressure placed on spinal discs.

® treatments

K-Laser treatments use painless red light energy to regenerate cells, optimize healing, and diminish neck pain naturally.
