What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain can be acute and go away on its own, or become chronic and cause people to suffer every single day with pain. If the root cause of neck pain isn't found, neck pain can keep coming back.
Common causes of neck pain can include:
- Poor posture
- Spinal misalignment
- Herniated Discs
- Muscle degeneration
- Traumatic injuries like whiplash
- Certain tumors
- Muscle overuse
- Muscle spasms
- Cervical neuralgia, or pinched nerves
Some of these causes can be readily apparent. For instance, you might be suffering from whiplash after a car accident that includes neck pain. However, sometimes it's difficult to know what exactly is causing your neck pain, especially if you can't seem to find any relief.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractors are medical professionals that have an intimate knowledge of the neuromusculoskeletal system. They are trained to understand the root causes of pain, which might not be apparent and can radiate from other parts of the body. For instance, you might not only be suffering from neck pain but also headaches that are directly related to pinched nerves.
Only a trained chiropractor will be able to determine the cause of your pain. This is done through comprehensive physical exams, imaging tests such as x-rays, and spinal and postural screenings. After the root cause of your pain is determined, our staff will help you understand what treatment is appropriate for you.
Effective and natural chiropractic treatments for neck pain include:
- Manual adjustments
- Spinal adjustments
- Muscle stretches
- Muscle exercises
- Trigger point therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Kinesio tapping
Studies have shown that chiropractic treatment is effective at not just treating neck pain, but also lower back pain! Most people feel relief in as little as one to three weeks of adjustments and treatment.
