Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

With all the ways you turn, hold, and use the muscles in your neck, it can be easy to strain muscles or pinch nerves and cause pain. Many times, the pain is chronic or slowly builds up over time, but in some cases, such as trauma, the pain is sudden and severe.  

Esoterra Acupuncture welcomes men, women, and children who suffer from neck pain due to:

  • Whiplash
  • Overuse
  • Sleeping position
  • Car accident
  • Sports injury
  • Recreational accident
  • Herniated disc
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cervical spondylosis
  • Poor posture

During your medical evaluation, Dr. Rastrygina checks to ensure that the cause of your pain is not blocked energy throughout your meridians.

What are the symptoms of neck pain?

The symptoms of neck pain are varied. Common complaints associated with neck pain include:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Headaches
  • Muscle aches
  • Limited mobility
  • Muscle spasms

If your symptoms are the result of a sudden accident or injury, you should seek immediate care at a local emergency room.

How can you treat neck pain naturally?

Dr. Rastrygina examines your neck and back to determine the underlying cause of your pain. Her preferred method of treatment for neck pain — acupuncture — is rooted in ancient Chinese medicine and has centuries of proven benefits.

She’ll ask you questions and examine you to determine the location and type of pain you’re having. This helps identify your best acupuncture points.

Whether your pain is from overuse, a pinched nerve, or stagnant energy flow, acupuncture works to decrease inflammation, relieve pain, and rebalance and restore your overall health.

Other options for your neck pain may include breathing exercises, stretching, and joint mobilization. In addition to these methods, Dr. Rastrygina might also recommend a combination of aromatherapy, craniosacral therapy, and sound therapy.

Is there a risk associated with using acupuncture for neck pain?

Unless you are pregnant or have a pacemaker, there’s no risk in using acupuncture to solve your neck pain. Dr. Rastrygina has 13 years of experience as a master acupuncturist and is passionate about helping you optimize your health in every way.
