    What could be causing my neck or back pain?

    It is tough to answer this question completely without seeing you in person, as there are many factors to consider in the causation of pain. In the absence of injury, trauma, and other outside factors, pain can arise from poor posture, repetitive movement, inactivity, and even from nutritional deficits.

    How do chiropractors generally treat neck and back pain?

    Chiropractors typically treat neck and back pain through manipulating or adjusting immobile segments of the spine and extremities, treating the muscles and other soft tissues involved, and through the application of specific rehabilitative exercise plans.

    Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

    Simply put, yes. Chiropractic adjustments are among the safest and most effective treatments available for acute and chronic musculoskeletal complaints. Recent studies confirm that in combination with regular exercise, chiropractic care is safer and more effective than NSAIDS and other (more serious) medications in terms of long term use and lasting benefits.

    What if I need surgery?

    Very few problems that present to a chiropractic office result in the need for surgical intervention. Remember, we are the people that try to keep you away from drugs and surgery, so we will do all that we can to help you avoid that route. However, in the event such problems requiring additional care do surface, we will take the appropriate steps in making sure you get the care you need, even if that means surgery.


    How do patients generally pay for chiropractic care?

    CHIROWORx Spine & Rehab is committed to a pricing structure that allows care for all budgets. We participate in most insurance programs and also accept auto accident and workers compensation cases. Flexible payment plans are an option for those who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage. To learn more about our payment options and to discuss your specific situation, feel free to call our office directly.

    Computer neck syndrome

    What is computer-neck syndrome?

    Tech neck syndrome (or stiff neck) is a result of a combination of poor posture and prolonged periods sitting at the desk in front of a computer performing repetitive motions. It typically presents with pain in the neck and shoulder region with tender “knots” throughout the area, reduced range of motion, headaches, and pain between the shoulders.

    What can I do to prevent computer-neck syndrome?

    Computer or tech neck syndrome can and will happen to most people who have desk jobs. Preventative measures include proper desk posture and posture awareness, adjustable or standing desks, regular exercise, and frequent breaks from the monitor.


    Should I sit a certain way to avoid computer-neck syndrome?

    The best way to avoid computer-neck syndrome is to avoid excessive time staring at your computer screen or hovering over your smartphone screen. In the workplace, this means – when possible – using standing or adjustable workspaces. If you must sit, make sure you are in an upright position, feet flat on the floor, facing forward, and using as much lumbar and shoulder support as possible. Also, make sure you aren’t reaching for your keyboard, as that can tack on additional problems quickly.

    When should I seek help from a chiropractor if I feel I have “tech neck”?

    If you are experiencing frequent pain in the head, neck and shoulder region, tight or spasmed muscles, pain between the shoulder blades, frequent headaches, noticeable posture faults, stiff neck, or numbness, tingling, or pain in the upper extremity, contact CHIROWORx for an evaluation.

    Dr. Riley Barrett, DC

    I see Dr. Barrett regularly for chronic back and neck pain. I came to him in really bad shape and I have improved big-time over the past 6 months. My M.D. had suggested surgery, but I’m so glad I chose chiropractic instead!
