Neck Pain

Most of us know what it's like to wake up occasionally with a stiff neck. But for some people, neck pain and stiffness become a disruptive and frustrating part of day-to-day life. Put an end to your neck pain with natural, personalized care with our Bakersfield chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Tatsuno. 


Causes of Neck Pain

What causes neck pain can vary from person to person. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your pain and immobility. Once the source of your discomfort has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs. Potential causes of neck pain include:

  • Degenerative disc disease (progressive thinning and damage to cervical discs and surrounding joints)
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Cervical radiculopathy (compression of a nerve root in the cervical spine)
  • Whiplash (pain and other symptoms due to rapid flexion and extension of the neck)
  • Muscle strain

We've found that people are more likely to experience neck pain if they have certain risk factors, including:

  • Poor posture, especially forward head and rounded shoulders
  • Advanced age
  • Smoking habit
  • High stress
  • A history of trauma or injury to the neck area
  • Sedentary lifestyle

How Our Bakersfield Chiropractor Alleviates Neck Pain

Medications and rest may temporarily alleviate your neck pain, but they likely won't address the root cause of your symptoms. Our Bakersfield chiropractor accelerates your body’s natural healing process through natural and non-invasive treatment options such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Adjustments from our chiropractor will restore your spinal alignment and improve your body’s ability to repair itself
  • Acupuncture: This ancient technique triggers biochemical changes in the body that promote health and natural pain relief
  • Massage therapy: Massage therapy will promote relaxation and improve circulation throughout your body
  • Nutritional counseling: Learn what foods and supplements can assist your body's tissue healing and lower inflammation
  • Corrective exercises: Dr. Tatsuno can teach you specific exercises to maximize core stability and strength
  • Lifestyle counseling: Learn how your daily habits, beliefs, postures, and even workspace setup may exacerbate your neck issues
