There’s nothing worse than waking up with a “crick in the neck” from sleeping wrong.

Choose holistic neck pain treatment in Fort Myers, FL, and Cape Coral, FL, at Edison Square Chiropractic Clinic. Our chiropractic neck pain services can help you find the relief you need to get back to work and back to health.
Here are just a few signs it’s time to give us a call:

- Sharp or stabbing pains
- Lasting tenderness in the neck, shoulder, or upper back
- Aches that seem to travel from your neck downward
- Frequent headaches or migraines
Common Causes of Neck Aches
The cervical spine is a wonder. Its flexibility allows us to check our blind spots while driving, track a pop fly at a ball game, and nod hello. Unfortunately, our heads are heavy. This combination leaves our necks vulnerable to painful pulls, strains, and trauma.
If you’ve recently been in a car crash, even a minor fender bender, your neck pain may be a symptom of whiplash. Often, however, what’s causing your stiff, achy neck is harder to pinpoint without the help of our specialists. Here are some examples of neck injuries.
- Car accidents - whiplash
- Bone or joint abnormalities
- Poor posture - tech neck
- Degenerative diseases
- Muscle strain
- Autoimmune disorders
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and non-addictive. After a thorough exam which may include a visual check, the use of specialized instrumentation, x-ray studies, and hands-on exam, we will help determine the right plan of action to treat the root causes of your discomfort.
