Neck & Back Pain
Neck & Back Pain in Midtown & Downtown Manhattan
Is neck or back pain stealing the show these days? If you find that your daily routine is impacted by your pain, this is where our Midtown and downtown Manhattan, NY, chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists Dr. Julie Cho, Dr. Alissa Agarwal and Dr. Nasim Aghayan can help. Here at Apex Acupuncture & Chiropractic, we offer a full range of chiropractic care to pinpoint the cause of your neck and back pain while also providing tailored-to-you treatment.
The Causes of Neck and Back Pain
Neck and back pain are two of the most common issues we see at our Midtown and downtown Manhattan, NY, practices and with the number of people sitting for hours on end at a desk, we aren’t too surprised. A sedentary lifestyle combined with poor posture is a recipe for aches and pains. Of course, poor posture and poor ergonomics can’t shuttle all of the blame. Other causes include injuries, diseases and disorders including,
- Strains and sprains
- Broken bones
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Bulging or herniated disc
Should I Turn to a Chiropractor?
A crick in the neck from simply sleeping in an awkward position probably can be addressed with simple rest and home care; however, when neck and back pain become the norm and aren’t responding well to home remedies, this is when you should turn to our chiropractors. You should also turn to us if you’re unsure why you’re dealing with pain in the first place. Neck or back pain that’s the result of an injury should always be evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Neck and Back Pain
First and foremost, we need to figure out what’s causing your pain so that we can provide you with the best treatments and therapies to target and eliminate the root cause (rather than simply treating the symptoms themselves).

- Take pressure off the ligaments, muscles, nerves and spine
