The neck is a very sensitive and vulnerable part of the human body. It can sustain injuries from sudden impacts, such as in car accidents, and it can be injured due to gradual overuse. Bad posture can also result in chronic neck pain. Here is a general overview of neck pain and how we treat it.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Car Accident – If you’ve been in a car accident and do not require emergency medical treatment, visit a chiropractor right away. Often, neck injuries are not immediately apparent following an auto accident. Auto accidents often result in whiplash. Whiplash happens when the head is suddenly jerked back and forth. This condition can be treated by a chiropractor using spinal manipulation, minimizing or eliminating your need for pain medication.
Poor Posture – Stress and anxiety can lead to poor posture. We tend to hold stress in our neck region. This can affect the muscles and nerves and can also lead to headaches. Treatment by a chiropractor can release tension in the tissues of your neck and improve the alignment of your body.
Bad Sleeping Position – When you “wake up on the wrong side of the bed” with “a crick in your neck” you know you have not slept well. Sometimes the position we sleep in throws our spinal column out of alignment. This can put pressure on nerves, resulting in neck pain. A visit to our chiropractor can help. A spinal adjustment can return joints to proper alignment without the use of pain medication or invasive treatment.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Acute neck pain should be treated immediately, especially if the pain is the result of an accident or injury. After a physical examination, our chiropractor will develop a plan of care tailored to your needs. Some of the treatments we regularly use alongside chiropractic adjustment are massage therapy, spinal decompression, and cold laser therapy.
