Neck Pain Relief With Our Newark Chiropractors

5 Ways to Treat Neck Pain

Most people who experience neck pain can find relief without undergoing surgery. In fact, home remedies are often effective in treating this common issue. At Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, our chiropractic professionals specialize in treating neck pain, shoulder pain, whiplash injuries, and other related problems. Here are some home remedies you can try for neck pain.


1. Reduce Stress

When dealing with neck pain, managing stress is crucial. Whether your pain is a result of a car accident injury, sports injury, or other factors, stress can exacerbate the symptoms. Incorporating meditation and mindfulness practices into your daily routine can help calm your mind, body, and spirit, facilitating better healing.

2. Apply Heat and/or Cold Therapy

Using heat therapy can promote healing by improving blood flow, delivering essential nutrients to the injured area, and reducing pain and swelling. Conversely, cold therapy can reduce inflammation and swelling while constricting blood vessels. For optimal results, apply cold therapy immediately after an injury, followed by heat therapy. Apply ice or heat for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, and allow your skin to recover with a two-hour break between applications.

3. Perform Neck Exercises

Engaging in daily neck exercises and stretches can be beneficial for relieving neck pain and improving your range of motion. However, individuals with a pinched nerve or a severe neck injury should consult a trusted chiropractor or healthcare professional for guidance on appropriate exercises. A chiropractor may recommend exercises such as chin tucks, forward neck bends, or other specific movements. Additionally, incorporating cardio exercises like swimming (back-crawl or back-stroke), walking, or rowing can contribute to overall neck health.

4. Practice Yoga

Basic yoga poses can help strengthen and stretch your neck muscles, alleviating stiffness and tension. Yoga poses such as downward-facing dog, cat-cow pose, sphinx pose, and child's pose can be particularly beneficial for relieving neck pain, including whiplash resulting from a car accident injury. Yoga not only aids in injury recovery but also promotes overall well-being. Attending a yoga class can provide additional guidance for injury prevention.

5. Change Your Position

Prolonged periods in the same position can contribute to neck tension and discomfort. To improve your range of motion, make it a habit to gently rotate your head in different directions every couple of hours. Additionally, avoid sitting for extended periods by incorporating regular activity breaks into your routine. Be mindful of your sleeping position as well, as it can significantly impact neck pain. Experiment with sleeping on your back or side to find the most comfortable and supportive position.
