Neck Pain Treatment

Neck Pain Treatment in Torrance

Your neck cannot do much more than hold up your head. Too much motion, weight, or strain can cause your neck muscles to tighten or sprain, resulting in irritation and pain. Neck pain can then lead to a headache. 

At South Bay Pain and Wellness, we provide natural neck pain treatment in Torrance to help you with any pain problems you might be experiencing.

Causes and Symptoms

Most cases of neck pain are mild and easy to treat. However, it can interfere with your daily activities and diminish your quality of life if you leave it untreated.

Patients with neck pain describe the sensation in many ways, such as persistent, burning, stabbing, or shooting. The pain may also travel from the neck to the shoulders or the arms.

Other symptoms involved in neck pain include the following:

  • Headache
  • Inability to turn or tilt the head
  • Stiffness in the upper back
  • Numbness or tingling in the shoulders or the arms

Since the neck is one of the weaker body parts, there are many things that can irritate it.

Muscle Strain

Performing repetitive and strenuous activities strains your neck muscles, which can result in pain.

Poor Posture

Poor posture may contribute to neck pain. Developing a “text neck” is one example of how posture impacts neck health. Spending long hours looking down at your phone can strain the muscles and ligaments in your neck, leading to pain and potential long-term issues. 


Trauma to the muscles, ligaments, disks, vertebral joints, and nerve roots in your spinal cord can cause neck pain. One common injury that results in neck pain is whiplash sustained in a car crash.

Underlying Medical Conditions

Neck pain can be a symptom of several conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, and cancer.

Misalignments in the Spine and Musculoskeletal System

When the neck vertebrae are not in their correct positions, they can compress nerves, leading to pain in the neck and surrounding areas. Addressing this cause of neck pain requires the help of Torrance neck pain specialists.

Our Approach to Neck Pain Treatment

Our patients at South Bay Pain and Wellness receive care from professionals who are well-versed in neck pain management. Our team consists of experts and specialists dedicated to understanding the underlying causes of neck pain and tailoring treatment plans to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Central to our diagnostic process is the utilization of advanced imaging tools such as X-rays and MRI scans. These allow us to obtain detailed images of the spine and surrounding structures for accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment planning.

We offer a comprehensive range of modalities designed to reduce pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall function. Our goal is to provide effective relief without the need for invasive procedures or medications as much as possible.

Finally, we believe patient education is essential for long-term success. We teach patients ergonomic principles, posture correction techniques, stress management strategies, and other lifestyle changes that can help prevent future episodes of neck pain and promote overall wellness.

Chiropractic Care

Our skilled chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and correcting spinal misalignments that can contribute to neck discomfort. Through gentle and targeted spinal adjustments, our chiropractic care for neck pain in Torrance can restore proper alignment to the spine, alleviate nerve compression, and promote long-term neck health.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

This innovative therapy utilizes traction techniques to gently stretch the spine, creating negative pressure within the discs and facilitating the movement of nutrients and oxygen into the affected area. By promoting disc hydration, spinal decompression therapy can help reduce inflammation and improve overall spinal health.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy provides therapeutic benefits for individuals experiencing muscle tension, stiffness, and discomfort in the neck and the upper back. Our acclaimed massage therapies include techniques such as myofascial release, Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, trigger-point massage, and shiatsu. These target tight muscles, improve circulation, and promote relaxation.

Pain Management

Effective pain management is essential for individuals experiencing neck pain. Our comprehensive approach encompasses a variety of low-risk techniques to address discomfort if nonsurgical treatment options fail to provide sufficient relief.

  • Medication. While medication is not our primary approach, we may recommend it in certain cases to manage acute or chronic neck pain. Our healthcare professionals carefully determine the most appropriate medication regimen, which may include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or muscle relaxants.
  • Radiofrequency/Rhizotomy. This minimally invasive procedure involves inserting a needle-like probe into the body. This probe sends radio waves to target and disrupt the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals from the neck.
  • Spinal Cord Stimulators: Spinal cord stimulators are implantable devices that deliver electrical pulses to the spinal cord, interfering with the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS). Minimally invasive spine surgery may be the last resort in rare cases where severe neck pain persists after exhausting conservative measures. MISS involves making small incisions in the back and using special instruments to access and repair the affected areas.
