People who don’t suffer from neck pain often underestimate how severe it can be and how it limits your ability to function. Here at The Joint® in North Carolina, we are all about understanding your issues and getting them resolved – and getting rid of your pain.
Understanding the Pain Causes
The first step though with any pain when you visit one of our locations is to discover the source of the pain. Once we discover the source, then we can come up with a plan of treatment. Your neck pain could be part of another disorder such as arthritis, or it could be from sitting at your desk all day with incorrect posture. Neck pain can be serious, especially if it’s not treated, so you should be examined by a professional. If you don’t want to be given traditional medicines or possibly even more extreme measures, you may want to see a chiropractor. However, finding a good chiropractor is important, which is why you should remember these tips when deciding which one to work with.
If any of your acquaintances have suffered from problems such as back or neck pain, or perhaps sciatica, one of them may be able to tell you about a good chiropractor. If you can’t think of anyone, you can still ask everyone you know if they know anyone who has had these problems. When possible, try to get a recommendation from someone who has been to a chiropractor and is now pain free. Short of this, someone who is currently being treated and is feeling improvements, can also be a good source to ask.
Ask Your Doctor
You could also ask your regular doctor for help finding a good chiropractor, even if you don’t want him or her to treat your neck pain with conventional medicine. It’s likely that your doctor can recommend someone, or at least know someone else who can refer you to the right chiropractor. Your doctor is a trustworthy source for a recommendation, and won’t suggest anyone who is not well qualified. Likewise, most doctors prefer taking a more conservative approach to curing neck pain and your general practitioner is more likely to recommend you seek help from a chiropractor before they suggest medication or more complicated solutions.
An Introduction to The Joint?
It would be well worth your time to visit The Joint so that our licensed chiropractors can evaluate you better. If you would like to learn more and have an introductory session, contact us!

The fact is, you can find relief for your neck pain. The Joint is a great place to start in any of our North Carolina locations. It’s not a good idea to disregard any kind of pain, as it will most likely not get better on its own. So instead of living in pain, and risking it turning into something more serious, you should use the above tips to find a good chiropractor.
