neck pain Overview

Did you know 1 in 3 people experience neck pain at least once a year? The office of Dr. Jesse has seen neck pain that’s left untreated eventually leading to increases in its frequency and intensity. Our approach is designed for fast relief that lasts, to help people get back to enjoying life without pain.

neck pain feels like

  • Difficulty moving your head
  • Muscle spasms or tension
  • Strain that leads to frequent headaches
  • Pain that intensifies during prolonged positions, like driving or using devices

stages of neck pain

Pain varies by duration and impact:

  • Acute Neck Pain: Sudden, lasting a few days to weeks.
  • Subacute Neck Pain: Persistent, lasting up to 12 weeks.
  • Chronic Neck Pain: Ongoing, altering daily life, lasting beyond 12 weeks.

Common Causes of neck pain

The office of Dr. Jesse addresses all stages of neck pain and it’s many causes using personalized treatment plans focusing on long-term relief and not just temporary fixes. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:

muscle strains

In Shorewood, many residents spend extensive hours in front of computers and mobile devices for both work and leisure, leading to muscle strains. And bodily kinking positions while kicking back, watching TV or reading in bed can put loads of strain on your neck. Regular breaks, ergonomic adjustments, and therapeutic exercises recommended by our chiropractors can prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

bad posture

Poor posture is rampant among the workforce in Shorewood, especially those in desk jobs or using smartphones extensively. Our clinic offers personalized posture assessments and corrective strategies to help you maintain optimal spinal alignment and relieve neck tension.

joint wear and tear

As our community enjoys an active lifestyle, natural aging or overuse from sports and other activities can accelerate joint issues in the neck. Our chiropractic treatments are designed to help manage wear and tear, keeping your joints healthier for longer.

nerve compression

The hustle of urban life in Shorewood can contribute to conditions like herniated discs or bone spurs, leading to nerve compression. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools help pinpoint these issues, and our tailored treatment plans address the root cause of your discomfort.


Shorewood sees its fair share of auto accidents and sports injuries, with whiplash being a common result. We specialize in treating these types of injuries, offering comprehensive care plans that support healing and prevent long-term damage.

rheumatoid arthritis

Inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis affects many individuals in our area. Our chiropractic care includes treatments that reduce inflammation and pain, improving mobility and quality of life for those suffering from RA.

Love Dr. Jesse!!!! He is compassionate, understanding, and flexible!!! I’ve been seeing him for over three years for my chronic upper back/neck pain and he knows exactly how to help you feel better fast. I recently moved and I still drove 30 minutes to see Dr. Jesse because my back has been really flared up for the last few days… After some time on the traction table and a few expert adjustments I can stand up straight again!! Thank you Dr. Jesse!!!!!

I am so very happy that I found Dr. Jesse Lang online! My husband was having some back pain and we have always used a natural approach to healing over conventional. Dr. Lang got to the root of his problem and felt better after his first visit. I too was having pain in my hip and started going for weekly visits and I feel so much better! Dr. Lang listens to all your concerns and helps to find the answers to alleviate your pain & discomfort. We always refer Dr. Lang to friends and family! Awesome!

Dr. Jesse Lang at Shorewood Elite Healthcare is the BEST! You will not be disappointed. I have many health issues and he has relieved so much of my pain. I was going to a pain Dr. and getting shots in my back, hip, leg with no success. Started going back to Dr. Jesse and with a few treatments feel so MUCH better. Plus he has a great personality, very upbeat, always a pleasure to be in his company.

Love Dr. Jesse and staff! Always friendly and super accommodating! Dr. Jesse works hard to make sure you always leave feeling better than when you walked in. I never feel rushed, as he always takes the time to talk. He really gets to know his patients and treats them like family. As an added bonus, there are incredible massage chairs to sit in while you wait for your adjustment! I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

tips to Prevent Neck Pain

An ounce of prevention may be worth a pound of cure

tip 1: perfect your posture

Mastering good posture is crucial for preventing neck pain. Implement these key strategies to maintain alignment:

  • Avoid Slouching: Consistently ensure that your head is aligned directly above your shoulders and that your shoulder line is perfectly parallel with your hips.
  • Use a Footstool: When standing for prolonged periods, place one foot on a low stool to reduce the strain on your neck and shoulders. Switch feet periodically to evenly distribute the pressure.
  • Correct Sitting Posture: Sit with your feet flat on the floor, knees at a right angle, and hips either level with or slightly higher than your knees to maintain spinal alignment.
  • Ergonomic Device Handling: Always bring your phone or tablet to eye level to prevent bending your neck, which can lead to strain over time.
tip 2: employ good ergonomics

Optimize your workspace to support your neck and reduce the risk of pain:

  • Monitor Height: Adjust your computer screen to be at eye level, ensuring that you’re not tilting your head forward or looking downward, which strains the neck.
  • Chair Adjustment: Use an ergonomic chair that supports your lower and upper back, and adjust the armrests so that your shoulders can remain relaxed.
  • Desk Setup: Keep frequently used items within easy reach to avoid unnecessary stretching or straining. Arrange your desk to promote efficient, comfortable postures.
tip 3: take frequent breaks

Minimize stress and strain on your neck with regular breaks, especially during long work sessions or travel:

  • Scheduled Breaks: Set a timer to remind you to stand up and move around every 30 minutes. Stretch your neck and shoulders to relieve tension.
  • Active Resting: Use break time to perform gentle neck stretches or shoulder rolls that promote blood circulation and loosen tight muscles.
  • Variety in Motion: Alternate between sitting and standing if you have a height-adjustable desk, or take a short walk around your office or living area.
tip 4: lift heavy things properly

Avoid neck strain from lifting or carrying heavy loads by using proper techniques:

  • Use Your Legs: Always lift from your knees, not your back or neck. Keep your spine straight and lift without twisting.
  • Evenly Distribute Weight: If you carry a bag or backpack, ensure the weight is evenly distributed to avoid leaning to one side, which strains the neck.
  • Limit Weight: Reduce the amount you carry. Instead of one heavy load, make multiple trips with lighter loads when possible.
tip 5: quit smoking

Smoking not only harms your health broadly but specifically exacerbates neck pain by damaging spinal tissues, discs, and joints:

  • Seek Help to Quit: Consult with a healthcare provider for guidance on smoking cessation programs that include counseling, medication, or nicotine replacement therapy.
  • Support Groups: Join a support group to connect with others who are also trying to quit. This can provide motivation and practical advice on overcoming the habit.
tip 6: get higher quality sleep

Good sleep habits and positions can significantly prevent neck pain by maintaining proper alignment and relaxation of the cervical spine:

  • Appropriate Pillow: Use a pillow that maintains the natural curve of your neck. Memory foam or feather pillows that mold to the contour of your head and neck might be beneficial.
  • Sleep Position: Try to sleep in a position that supports the spine’s natural alignment. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, which can put pressure on your neck.
  • Mattress Quality: Ensure your mattress supports your spine adequately. A mattress that is too soft or too old may not provide the support your neck and back need.
