Neck Pain in Bellingham

Sleeping wrong, sports injuries, too much tech time. These are some common causes of neck pain, which prompt people to seek chiropractic care. At Noble Chiropractic, we provide natural, effective and gentle care to relieve patients’ neck pain and get them back to what they love in life.


What Are Some Causes?

Neck pain is typically inflammation. Something is out of alignment, coupled with inflammation.

A rib issue

Neck pain can also stem from a rib not articulating well with the upper spine there. Ribs 1, 2, 3, or four will cause neck pain and neck stiffness.

Digital device use

Texting, talking, streaming, surfing. Given the considerable time most people spend on their smartphones, tablets and other digital devices, it’s no wonder neck pain or tech neck is a common complaint.

Gentle Adjustments & Laser Therapy

Our approach is to reduce inflammation, which often helps neck pain considerably. To address neck pain chiropractically, Dr. Noble uses Torque Release Technique (TRT), which is a gentle method. He doesn’t adjust someone manually with neck pain. After all, when your neck hurts, the last thing you want is to get it “cracked” or “popped.”

Dr. Noble first addresses the muscles of the shoulder, as they have an intimate connection to the neck. “When you start to work on the shoulders, you often start to see changes in the neck,” he says. He can get the muscles firing in the shoulders. Once the muscles start firing, not only do the shoulders feel better, but the neck can also gain range of motion.

Getting those muscles to work using cold laser therapy also plays a big part in balancing the neck and getting the neck to work better.

Home Care

The first thing anyone should do when they experience pain is apply ice and use anti-inflammatories.
