Say Goodbye to Stiff Necks: Expert Tips from Stackis Chiropractic

neck pain at the deskAre you constantly battling a stiff neck? You’re not alone. At Stackis Chiropractic, many patients struggle with this common issue. Dr. Jeff, our experienced chiropractor, shares his insights on the causes of neck stiffness and how chiropractic care can help you find relief.

The Causes of Today’s Stiff Necks

In today’s digital age, the most common causes of a stiff neck are often very evident. The most common causes are posture and technology-related, meaning people on computers, tablets, and cell phones constantly look down. This downward gaze puts extra stress on the neck, leading to stiffness and discomfort.

Other factors contributing to neck stiffness include poor sleeping positions, prolonged sitting or standing in one position, and lack of regular movement and stretching.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractic care
offers effective solutions for those struggling with stiff necks. At Stackis Chiropractic, we take a comprehensive approach to treating neck stiffness by evaluating the spine for balance, alignment, and motion. Where we find imbalances, we make adjustments to restore function, helping the nervous system, muscles, and joints work better.

Our treatments are tailored to each patient’s needs and preferences. Dr. Jeff notes, “All the techniques we use work well; it just depends on the patient. Some people prefer different types of techniques.” Whether you’re comfortable with manual adjustments or prefer gentler methods like the Activator® technique, we have options to suit your comfort level.

Adding Complementary Exercises and Stretches to Your Plan

Dr. Jeff recommends incorporating at-home exercises and stretches to enhance the effects
of chiropractic treatments. These may include posture retraining exercises, mobility and range of motion stretches, or simple shoulder rolls and neck rotations.

Taking frequent breaks from the computer and doing simple exercises can make a big difference. For patients with noticeable postural distortions, we recommend strengthening exercises to help bring the head back over the shoulders.

Preventive Measures and Lifestyle Changes

Preventing recurring neck stiffness is just as important as treating it. Here are some tips from Dr. Jeff to maintain a healthy neck

  • Practice proper ergonomics—ensure your computer monitor is at eye level and maintain an upright seated position
  • Mind your mobile device use—bring your phone up to eye level instead of looking down at it
  • Choose the right sleep position—sleep on your side or back, avoiding stomach sleeping, which may strain the neck
  • Take regular breaks—change positions often to avoid being stuck in one posture for too long
  • Stay active—regular exercise and stretching help maintain neck flexibility and strength

Don’t Let a Stiff Neck Hold You Back

A stiff neck may significantly impact your daily life, but you don’t have to live with the discomfort. At Stackis Chiropractic, Dr. Jeff and our team are committed to helping you achieve a pain-free, flexible neck.
