Chiropractic care can eliminate the root cause of your pain through adjustments and education, which means difficult and invasive treatments can be avoided.
A Drug-Free Solution For Neck Pain
As a noninvasive and drug-free alternative treatment, chiropractic adjustments help address the underlying issues associated with many neck problems. Modern technology is now a major contributor to neck discomfort and pain. Other people have poor sleeping habits or injuries from sports or car accidents. There may be many causes of your neck pain, but we can help you find the source and ease the pain.
- Constantly Looking Down
- Improper Posture
- Herniated Discs
- Sitting Too Much
- Muscle Disorders
- Repetitive Motions
- Whiplash Or Car Accident
Treating The Root Of The Problem
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 sciatic region, which can run all the way down to your feet and toes. Inflamed and torn muscles can cause debilitating pain. Chiropractic care can help to uncover and address these issues so you can recover both your flexibility and quality of life.
Acute vs. 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 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 oftentimes misdiagnosed because the primary cause is not remembered.
Chronic pain sets in after the initial neck injury has healed. There are many manifestations of chronic 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 pain can lead to psychological manifestations such as depression, anxiety, and anger. All of these problems lead to a lower quality of life.
Little Habits Can 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. Some of the habits to avoid include:
- Text Neck Or Repetitive SmartPhone Use
- Long Hours Staring At Computers
- Improper Exercise Techniques
- Sleeping With Too Many Pillows
- Sleeping On Your Stomach
Pain Relief With Chiropractic Care
Whether your acute 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.
