Neck Pain Relief Is Still a Possibility, No Matter How Long You've Been Dealing With Discomfort
Everything in your body is connected, which is why neck pain treatment is important for overall health. If you've ever experienced trauma or injury to the neck, whether in a car accident, sports collision, or random fall, the impact can last for years, and you may be thinking, "Ah, yes, that's why my neck hurts." However, your neck pain could also be caused by years of poor posture, stress, repetitive movements, micro-trauma (like sleeping in a strange position or taking a minor bump to the head), and more.
In the end, you're probably not as concerned with why your neck hurts as you are with how you're going to fix it. That's where we can help. We start by determining the "why" and developing a neck pain treatment plan that addresses it. That program is personalized to you and takes a big-picture approach to wellness. It may include gentle hands-on adjustments using specialized tools and techniques as well as guidelines for lifestyle changes that will help you maintain a happy, healthy neck!
Dr. Alison Bremner (an upper cervical specialist) and Dr. Colby Wilson of Atlas Chiropractic are trained and experienced in providing neck pain treatment for patients in Erie, CO, and throughout the Boulder area. We focus on reversing the original damage, no matter when it occurred, to restore proper nerve function and range of motion. As a result, you may enjoy neck pain relief as well as better sleep, improved clarity and focus, and enhanced mood. Don't resign yourself to a life of neck pain. If you haven't visited us yet, you're not out of options.

What is Cervicalgia?
Your doctor may have diagnosed you with cervicalgia, a general term for pain in the cervical spine. If you've been taking medication without relief, or if you've been avoiding your favorite activities in an effort to avoid the pain, you should know there's another way. Erie, CO, residents tend to live active outdoor lifestyles, and you don't have to limit yourself when there are neck pain treatment options available.
What Causes Neck Pain?
There are many potential reasons you could be experiencing neck pain, and they range from the obvious—like a car accident or a blow to the head—to the less obvious—years of poor posture, chronic stress, or a not-ideal sleeping position. At Atlas Chiropractic, we discuss your health history and lifestyle habits during our comprehensive evaluation to determine what might be causing your cervicalgia and how we should proceed with neck pain treatment.
The sudden forward and backward motion of the neck, often experienced in car accidents or sudden stops, falls, or physical assault is a type of sprain that can cause lasting trauma and neck pain.
WHAT DOES MY NECK PAIN HAVE TO DO WITH THE REST OF MY BODY?
Your cervical vertebrae protect your spinal cord and help support your head. The nerves that originate in your cervical spine are responsible for muscle movement in your upper body (from your head and neck to your shoulders, forearms, and fingers), feeling in your face, and even breathing. If the vertebrae are damaged or misaligned, they can interfere with the nerves' ability to communicate, leading to vertigo, migraines, numbness, pain in other parts of your body, and insomnia. Neck pain can disrupt your posture and movement patterns, which can create more pain and limit your range of motion in other joints over time. You may also notice a decrease in your mood and energy levels, particularly if your cervicalgia makes it hard to sleep or forces you to avoid activities you enjoy.
You could be experiencing a number of symptoms you don't even realize are connected to what's happening with your neck, so you may be surprised when your neck pain treatment also leads to fewer headaches, more restful sleep, improved energy, and better overall health and quality of life. If you've visited doctors about those symptoms and they haven't been able to help, it may be because they haven't considered the true cause of the symptoms.
Because all neck pain is different, all neck pain treatment plans are different. At Atlas Chiropractic, we start with a thorough assessment of your symptoms and health history, listening carefully to your concerns and experiences to determine the most probable cause of your pain. Your wellness program includes suggestions for environmental and behavioral modifications to help you avoid re-injury along with hands-on cervical chiropractic treatments. These treatments are gentle, non-invasive, and precise, and we only do what's necessary for you when we agree together that it's the most useful path toward neck pain relief.
FIND THE NECK PAIN TREATMENT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR IN THE ERIE, CO AREA
We always start at the source: what's causing your neck pain? If we make physical adjustments to your spine, but you don't address the habits that are contributing to the misalignment, your neck pain will likely return. That's why we provide specific neck pain treatment as necessary as we help you create awareness around habits and movement patterns that may be contributing to that pain. As cervical specialists, we have training and experience that most doctors and even other chiropractors don't have when it comes to neck issues, and that's why we've been able to successfully treat so many patients in Eric, CO, for neck pain.
Dr. Bremner and Dr. Wilson believe in treating people, not conditions. We seek to understand your lifestyle, your goals, and your idea of optimal health before we design your treatment plan. To find lasting neck pain relief, the program has to be tailored specifically to you, and that's what we do best.
