There’s a reason for the old saying, “It’s a pain in the neck”. Although neck pain is a common condition, it can make even the simplest movements involving the neck, head, and shoulders extremely difficult.
Mild neck pain can be an annoyance, but if left untreated, it can lead to debilitating pain, headaches, arm pain, and eventually numbness, tingling, and weakness. Understanding the root cause of your neck pain is a crucial step towards finding the proper treatment.
Symptoms of neck pain can vary in severity and duration. Neck pain can be quite severe and last several days or weeks, or your neck pain may be minor and not interfere with your daily activities at all. Either way, it is important to address what is causing your neck pain. Here are some ways patients describe the pain:
These symptoms make it difficult for those with neck pain to participate in normal daily activities, reducing the quality of their life.
In order to properly treat neck pain, it is important to understand the underlying condition causing it.
There are several factors that could be contributing to your neck pain. During our consultation, we’ll help to identify the underlying cause of the pain. Some of the common reasons for neck pain include:
Over-the-counter drugs and similar medications are normally used to treat or get relief from neck pain. You might be using some of these to treat your neck pain, but they do not have long-lasting effects and may still have negative side effects. Chiropractic care is holistic and natural. It targets the root cause of your pain and addresses it, providing long-lasting relief without any of the side effects that pain relievers may have
Avoid putting your head down and bending your neck in uncomfortable positions for long hours. Always take a break to stretch your neck and adjust your posture. Add a little neck exercise to your routine to keep the neck muscles strong and healthy.
It is possible that neck pain might indeed go away over time on its own without causing much harm. However, neck pain should never be dismissed. In some cases, ignoring neck pain can lead to long-term problems and even irreversible damage.
I was referred to Dr. Mike Kronaizl at Cornerstone Chiropractic by a friend at a time I was experiencing extreme back pain. I was afraid I was facing back surgery and wanted to avoid it if at all possible. I "hobbled" into his office, and we set up a plan for treatment. I am almost pain free now. His staff is very accommodating, and he is a very understanding and a truly caring person. He has my 100% endorsement.
Dr. Kroinazl has been exceptional in the care he has provided me. When I started seeing him I was dealing with neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, and sciatica that was not only limiting my ability to enjoy my job along with my hobbies but also the joy and happiness that had come with them. He sat down with me and laid out a transparent plan and timeline to help me reach my goals. I must admit, as skeptical as I was initially, he knew exactly what he was talking about and what he was doing. I am now pain free and able to not only do my job and my hobbies, but enjoy them as well.
Dr. Mike is working wonders on my neck n shoulder blades. I went from having numbness in my arms constantly to hardly any symptoms at all. I'm in the construction business n in constant pain so I'm glad I found him n his staff . Greatly appreciated.
I have had scoliosis since a child. I have been in severe pain for years. I started going to Dr. Mike in late August. He already has me feeling so much better. The sciatic nerve pain is gone and the slipped disc is healing. I was in so much pain that getting out of bed was difficult. I could barely make it through the day without taking natural pain killers. I am able to do so much more in just a few weeks of care!
I’d been having terrible sciatic pain for 6+ months. It was to the point I could barely walk, my leg would give out, I needed 2 hands on the railing to use steps, couldn’t sit, I was miserable, and I should add I’m only 41! A coworker recommended Dr. Mike and I wish I would’ve taken her advice sooner! Everything I thought I knew about chiropractic care has gone out the window- what Dr. Mike is doing is amazing! I’m 1 month into treatment and feel amazing! I can do stairs without using the railing, can sit on my couch again, and my limp is almost gone! I recommend Dr. Mike to everyone!!!
I was sceptical regarding chiropractic care until I started treatment at Cornerstone Chiropractic with Dr. Mike. Pain in my left hip that sometimes shot down my leg is virtually gone, and I am halfway through the treatment process. I have had muscle tension and soreness in my neck and shoulders for years and that is greatly improved too.
Dr. Kronaizl cares deeply about others achieving great health and he goes the extra mile to make sure you get the best care possible. He's honest, genuine, and great Dr. to work with!
I've had back pain for nearly three years and after many failed attempts with other therapies and chiropractic care, I decided to go see Dr. Kronaizl. After only a few weeks of treatment, I feel like I have my life back again! I highly recommend Dr. Kronaizl! Schedule that appointment, the only thing you'll regret is not scheduling it sooner.
I’ve been struggling with shoulder pain for quite some time and it had been gradually getting worse. The pain made it difficult for me to sleep at night and it got to the point where it was difficult to lift my grandson. After seeing Dr. Kronaizl I have no issues lifting my grandson and I’m no longer waking up in the middle of the night due to the pain, which is huge! I highly recommend Dr. Kronaizl. He’s performed wonders on my shoulder!
Dr. Michael is wonderful! I've had back pain and weaknesses for years, after each visit I'm getting stronger and feeling better! No back pain is my new normal!
Dr. Michael is someone I fully trust with my body. His adjustments feel great and get awesome results, especially after a car accident injury!
Dr. Mike was very helpful and knowledgeable and took time to explain things so I could understand and make an informed decision on my care and I thoroughly trust his knowledge and skill. I look forward to continuing my care and finding the relief I’ve been needed.
Dr Kronaizl is very knowledgeable and kind. He states exactly what he is doing and why. His concern is me and my pain and improving my problems. I I highly recommend him to everyone
Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.
Dr Kronaizl is wonderful! He goes above and beyond to help get you out of pain. I would 100% recommend him!
Dr. Michael is phenomenal! Great adjustments, great bedside manner, and he really cares. Cannot recommend his care enough!
Dr. Michael was very professional and personable. I finally went in after experiencing back pain for nearly a month and felt so much better after one adjustment. Highly recommend!
Dr. Michael is a true professional who not only provided me with adjustments that worked, but did so in such a caring and polite manner with my health top of mind. I highly recommend Dr. Michael to anyone seeking chiropractic care!
