There’s a reason we call unpleasant things a “pain in the neck”. It’s no fun when your neck hurts. In our years of practice, neck pain is one of the most common conditions we treat. I remember doing a health fair at the EPA one year. There were 3000 federal employees working there, all toiling away in front of computers. Of the 400 people who came through our booth that day, 90% of them complained of having chronic neck pain! If you suffer from neck pain, the best neck pain treatment is acupuncture.
We have had dentists and hygienists come to us with chronic neck pain from years of doing root canals and teeth cleanings in awkward positions. Pain completely resolved with acupuncture. Computer programmers who thought neck pain was unavoidable, happily shocked when their pain went away, never to return. Car accident victims suffering from whiplash, totally recovered after getting acupuncture. So how it this possible? What makes our neck pain treatment so successful? Let’s take a look.
Best Neck Pain Treatment – The Physics of Neck Pain
Chronic neck pain can come from a traumatic injury that does not properly or does not completely heal. It can come from years of doing something that strains the neck and upper back muscles to the point where they are perpetually tight or in spasm. In both of these cases there is very poor blood circulation in the muscles. In Chinese medicine terms there is also poor qi circulation through the channels passing through the muscles. Muscles cannot function properly without good qi and blood flow. They cannot heal, cannot be soft and elastic, cannot stretch properly, without good circulation.
Acute neck pain most often comes from sleeping on the pillow wrong. Waking up with a kink in your neck (called wry neck) is very painful. It typically involves one of two muscles that have gone into spasm due to sleeping in the wrong position. Whiplash is another acute onset type of neck pain brought on by trauma. Muscles in the neck are injured from over extension.
How Does Acupuncture Heal Neck Pain?
The acupuncture neck pain treatment restores the muscles to their healthy state. Acupuncture needles are placed at specific locations to release spasmed and tight muscles, to open blocked channels and to improve qi and blood circulation to the affected area. The result is breathtaking. Pain melts away, stiffness and tightness vanish and muscles return to their healthy state. It’s the comprehensive nature of our neck pain treatment that brings long lasting results.
Best Neck Pain Treatment at Raleigh Acupuncture
Our neck pain treatment is custom made for the specific needs of each patient. We always get cases of neck pain that are more complicated and involve issues other than tight muscles. Sometimes neck pain is caused by chronic sinus problems. Other times neck pain and headaches overlap and need to be treated simultaneously. Neck pain can sometimes be related to sciatica and other hip issues. As with all conditions we treat, patients must be examined when they first come in and given a proper diagnosis. That will determine our neck pain treatment.
Does The Acupuncture Hurt?
Acupuncture for neck pain is quite relaxing. Since the needles are releasing chronically tight muscles, patients describe feeling like a weight is being lifted from their shoulders during the treatment. They often fall asleep in the table and don’t want the treatments to end. If your neck hurts, come in for the best neck pain treatment – acupuncture.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a dentist and over the last 20 years the nature of my work and positions required by my work had resulted in chronic neck pain. It affected my sleep, limited my ability to exercise, and was just a real pain in the neck! A friend at church recommended Raleigh Acupuncture and I gave it a try. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical, but gave it a try because I had tried a number other therapies with no success. I’m glad I did. They resolved my neck pain completely!
Very professional and really clear on what needed to be addressed. I made great progress. My neck pain was resolved in three treatments! Wonderful to find them.
Raleigh Acupuncture resolved my neck pain in six treatments! It was so bad I was taking prescription pain medications three times a day for a month. When that started upsetting my stomach I knew I had to find another solution. I thought I was afraid of needles, but after one treatment I saw how relaxing it was. I fell asleep during most of the treatments!
