Managing Your Neck Pain

Your State College Back Pain Chiropractor

The neck comprises seven vertebral bones, and a shock-absorbing disc separates each bone. The seven vertebrae in the neck are called the cervical spine.

The joints and muscles of the cervical spine provide a substantial range of motion, allowing for all head and neck movements. The cervical spine also carries the weight of the head.

The health and proper function of the cervical spine are important to almost all of our daily activities. 

Neck discomfort is becoming a consistent problem for many.

With device use, remote workstations with poor ergonomics, and everyday stress and strain, neck pain is rising. Every day, our chiropractic clinic helps patients put an end to their neck pain and get more enjoyment out of life.

The health of your cervical spine is vital to your overall health and wellness. At Brummert Family Chiropractic, we have the solution to your pain.

Our treatments work quickly and have been proven to be safe and effective. With chiropractic care, you are treating the source of the problem, not just simply masking the pain.

Using a variety of noninvasive chiropractic services, we can get you the results that you’ve been looking for.

Why do I have neck pain?

Neck pain can decrease the quality of your days. Neck pain can disrupt sleep, make it difficult to focus on tasks at work and home, and can even cause difficulty while driving. 

Our team uses safe, proven techniques that resolve neck pain by treating the cause. A comprehensive approach helps us to identify exactly which tissues (muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, etc.) are causing your pain. Using this approach, we can deliver a treatment that gives you relief quickly.

Some common neck injuries we can help with include:

  • Sprains or strains
  • Inflammation
  • Whiplash  
  • Nerve irritation
  • Disc generation
  • Arthritis
  • Herniated cervical discs
  • Spinal stenosis


Neck pain can impact anyone. Whether your neck pain is acute or chronic, dull or sharp, mild or severe, we have the solution.

Neck pain patients

When your neck is stiff and painful, simple tasks such as brushing your teeth can be challenging. Our State College chiropractic clinic can help you find relief as soon as possible.

With a thorough evaluation of your pain and a tailored care plan, we know you will feel confident in our approach to your treatment. 

Whether you are experiencing neck pain for the first time or have been dealing with it for years, we want to help. Don’t let neck pain interfere with your everyday life.


Common reasons for neck pain include:

  • Poor workstation setup
  • Poor posture and ergonomics
  • Using a handheld device for extended periods (AKA “Tech Neck”)
  • Sport or exercise-related injury
  • Auto accident
  • Repetitive movements or overuse
  • Improper sleep positions
  • Improper lifting


At times, neck pain can onset from a simple movement, such as checking your blind spot while driving. Other times you may feel like you strained your neck due to heavy exercise or strenuous chores around the house.

Regardless of the cause, chiropractic care can help you return to your usual, pain-free life.


Common complaints of neck pain include:

  • Neck stiffness
  • Muscle tension in the neck that extends to the shoulders
  • Dull and/or throbbing neck pain
  • Sharp neck pain
  • Neck pain that worsens when turning head
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Pinched or compressed nerves
  • Pulled/strained neck muscles
  • Headaches
  • Pain at the base of the skull


Sometimes neck pain can go away on its own; however, if you are experiencing a new complaint of neck pain, severe neck pain, or neck pain that has been present for more than a couple of days, don’t hesitate to call our office.

In addition to helping you get out of pain, we will provide home care education so that you can prevent further injury.

“Dr. Brummert is exactly what my husband and I are looking for in a chiropractor. He does quality work that helps me feel my best, and he takes the time to instruct me on what I can do at home to improve neck and back pain as well as general physical wellness. He does not follow the gimmicky approach of many chiropractors who push patients to come in for adjustments on a monthly basis, regardless of the need for treatment. I appreciate that Craig only gives services that are needed and he's both personable and professional. Highly recommend!”

“I've been going to Dr. Brummert for my neck and low back pain for a few years. My experience has been flawless. The care is second to none. He is very straightforward when it comes to treatment and the costs associated with it. I've had chiropractic treatment from 4 or 5 different doctors in the central Pennsylvania area, and Dr. Brummert is by far my most preferred. He's definitely earned my continued business.”
