The Most Commonly Used Treatments for Neck Pain

Neck pain can be a real pain in the rear. While it’s a fairly common ailment, it can still really get in the way of everyday life. Have you ever tried to run, work, or drive with a stiff neck? It can range from annoying to impossible! To get rid of neck pain, check out these commonly used treatments and determine which one might work best for eliminating or preventing your neck pain.


This is probably the most often used treatment plan. While it can do a sufficient job in reducing both inflammation and pain, it doesn’t actually treat the cause of the pain. It simply gets rid of the symptoms. For  temporary elimination, medication can get the job done. If you want to rid your body of pain for good or would like to prevent neck pain from occurring, you might want to look at some other options for managing pain in the neck.


For a lot of neck pain, a heating pad may be sufficient. If you have a simple crick in the neck or a sore muscle, applying heat may do the trick. Heat reduces inflammation, which can ultimately reduce pain in an afflicted area. If you don’t have time for a heating pad, try a topical gel like IcyHot. This will give the heat effect without having to sit still. Another great option is to take a hot shower. This heat can provide relief in the area by releasing tension and reducing inflammation.

Chiropractic Care

An excellent choice for eliminating and preventing neck pain is to get chiropractic care on a  regular basis. More and more people are finding relief from nagging neck pain with this option. A chiropractor is often able to use spinal manipulation in order to align misalignments of the spine that cause problems such as pain. Along with repairing these misalignments and managing that pain, they may also be able to help prevent future pain from occurring in the first place.
