MindBody Med in Seattle treats patients suffering from neck pain caused by lifestyle and injuries. Many patients have tried multiple therapies and still have no relief from their neck pain. Chiropractic care can eliminate the root cause of neck pain through adjustments and education and more difficult and invasive treatments can be avoided.
A Drug-Free Solution
As a noninvasive and drug-free alternative to common chronic neck pain treatments, chiropractic adjustments help address the underlying issues associated with many neck problems. We can help you with some of the most common causes of constant neck pain, which include:
- Constantly Looking Down
- Improper Posture
- Herniated Discs
- Sitting Too Much
- Muscle Disorders
- Repetitive Motions
Treating The Root Of Your Neck Pain
The seven vertebrae in your neck are supported by ligaments, muscles, and nerves that surround and connect to the lower half of your torso. Neck pain can be part of a damaged sciatica region, which can run all the way down to your feet and toes. Inflamed and torn muscles can cause debilitating neck pain. Chiropractic care can help to uncover and address these issues so you can recover both your flexibility and quality of life.
Acute Versus Chronic Neck Pain
Acute pain is usually sharp and severe and has a sudden onset. When there is a sharp pain in your neck, that is something to take seriously. Acute neck pain comes from injuries related to car accidents, sports, falls or anything that impacts your neck. Acute pain can happen years after the actual injury, but is often times misdiagnosed because the primary cause is not remembered.
Chronic neck pain sets in after the initial neck injury has healed. There are many manifestations of chronic neck pain such as a reduced range of motion or mobility, muscle spasms, and overall lack of energy. Because of the increased pain and discomfort and strain on your body, chronic neck pain can lead to psychological manifestations of the chronic pain such as depression, anxiety, and anger. All of these problems lead to a lower quality of life.
Little Habits Can Also Cause Big Discomfort
Sometimes we sleep in an awkward position and wake up with a stiff neck and headache. Reading on small devices, with heads tilted in a downward position can lead to a neck injury commonly referred to as “tech or text neck.” The strain we place on our bodies with these little habits can lead to painful and even permanent damage as well.
Chronic Pain Relief With Chiropractic Care
Whether your acute neck pain is due to personal habits, a car accident, or your work, a chiropractic adjustment can help eliminate your symptoms by treating their root causes. We can also teach you ways to correct posture while sleeping, sitting at a computer desk, standing at work, and reading on small digital devices. Lifestyle modification goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care.
