Cervicalgia and upper cervical care in Boise

Cervicalgia, commonly referred to as neck pain, is a prevalent condition that can disrupt daily activities and lower the quality of life. This condition can arise from various causes and present a range of symptoms, from mild discomfort to severe pain. At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we focus on upper cervical care, providing targeted treatment to manage and alleviate cervicalgia.

What is Cervicalgia?

Cervicalgia is a term used to describe pain and discomfort in the neck area. This condition can result from various factors, including poor posture, injuries, degenerative diseases, and stress.

Common Causes of Cervicalgia:

  • Poor Posture: Prolonged use of computers and mobile devices can lead to poor posture, causing strain on the neck muscles.
  • Injuries: Whiplash and other traumatic injuries can cause neck pain.
  • Degenerative Diseases: Conditions like osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease can lead to cervicalgia.
  • Stress: Emotional stress can cause muscle tension in the neck, leading to pain.

Symptoms of Cervicalgia:

  • Sharp or dull pain in the neck
  • Stiffness and reduced range of motion
  • Headaches, often originating from the neck
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms or shoulders
  • Muscle spasms

Managing Cervicalgia:

Conventional Treatments:

  • Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs can provide temporary relief.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises and stretches can help strengthen the neck muscles and improve flexibility.
  • Hot/Cold Therapy: Applying heat or cold packs can reduce inflammation and ease pain.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care:

At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we take a specialized approach to treating cervicalgia by focusing on the alignment of the upper cervical spine. This approach involves:

  1. Precise Adjustments: Gentle and targeted adjustments to realign the upper cervical vertebrae, reducing nerve interference and improving function.
  2. Comprehensive Care Plans: Personalized care plans that include lifestyle and ergonomic advice to prevent further strain on the neck.
  3. Advanced Diagnostic Tools: Utilizing advanced imaging techniques to assess and monitor spinal alignment and the effectiveness of treatments.

Patient Success Stories:

Many patients at Peak Chiropractic in Boise have experienced significant relief from cervicalgia through upper cervical care. One patient, for example, reported a substantial reduction in neck pain and improved mobility after a series of upper cervical adjustments.

Cervicalgia is a common and often debilitating condition, but it doesn't have to be a permanent part of your life. Upper cervical chiropractic care offers a targeted and effective approach to managing neck pain. At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we are dedicated to helping you achieve better health and relief from cervicalgia.

My son has had one headache in 4 months. One! And his sensory issues are not even a thing anymore.
Dr. Jon and Kyara are amazing!!! I lived with severe neck and shoulder pain for 5 years, trying everything you can think of for relief. Nothing helped. One day I saw a video on Instagram that just spoke to me. It was everything I was experiencing. The videos are so informative. I called that day and set an appointment. Kyara asked me before my first adjustment if I was ready for the first day of my new life and in my mind I truly wasn’t convinced that it was going to be as magical as it has been. I’ve been there and tried that so I was hopeful but not 100% convinced. She was right, it was the first day of my new life. My pain is nothing like it was, it used to be all I could think about. I’m not perfect yet but I’m on my way there. Peak Chiropractic has changed my life. Best decision I have ever made for myself. My son (13) got a scan for frequent headaches and sensory issues. Dr. Jon had me bring him in for a scan and again was hopeful but not fully convinced and once again they were right. My son has had one headache in 4 months. One! And his sensory issues are not even a thing anymore. It has been amazing for him and I’m so grateful he is getting treatment as well. On top of all the goodness we have had since starting we also feel cared for by both Dr. Jon and Kyara. They feel like family and care about us. Kyara is also super into all around health and I am always learning things from her each time I go. Definitely life changing all the way around and I highly recommend checking them out. You will not be disappointed!

Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me.
Peak has been a game changer for me. I have struggled with migraines for years. After a lot different trial and errors I found Peak and now I can say I have found a solution. Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me. They were super flexible and understanding with my busy schedule. I am more than grateful not be losing a day a week to migraines. I am excited to continue seeing them and experience even more health benefits.

I am personally scared of being twisted and popped and that’s not part of their practice.
Peak Chiropractic is an amazing place. Jon and Kierra are very knowledgeable and friendly! They take the time to explain everything and make sure you’re well taken care of. They specialize in starting at the root of the cause and not over doing it. I am personally scared of being twisted and popped and that’s not part of their practice. They made me feel very comfortable and the recovery room is very comforting after the adjustment. I highly recommend Peak!

They are so amazing and caring. Spend time to explain any questions and make sure you are super comfortable with everything.
I have been seeing Jonathan for several weeks now. I came in because of dizziness and headaches. Which I am so happy to say that I am seeing improvement on both. They are so amazing and caring. Spend time to explain any questions and make sure you are super comfortable with everything. I highly recommend everyone to go see them. I know I’m glad I am.
