A Pain in the Neck
There’s a reason for the saying “it’s a pain in the neck.” That’s because the reality of neck pain is uncomfortable and can cause a lot of grief for people.
Your neck is made up of vertebrae that are directly linked to the rest of your spine. If you incur an injury like whiplash, or if you have repeated stress like poor posture, you can develop neck pain that can range from mild to severe.
If your neck pain is caused by a vehicle accident, whiplash, a sudden injury, or poor posture, it is always a good idea to see a chiropractor. Your chiropractic practitioner will be able to assess your injury and ensure there are no other issues. From there, we can offer manual adjustments and other treatments like massage therapy to help restore your range of motion.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Sometimes, the cause of neck pain is obvious. Other times, it is more subtle. Even if you’re unsure of what has caused your neck pain, a chiropractor will be able to assist you and help you find more comfort.
Muscle Tension & Strain
Poor posture, sitting still for too long, poor sleeping posture, and lurching your neck during exercise can all lead to muscle tension and strain in your neck.
You can avoid straining or tensing your neck by ensuring you have an ergonomic office set up, performing daily stretches, and ensuring you use proper exercise techniques. A chiropractor can help suggest lifestyle changes that could ease muscle tension and strains in your neck.
Injuries to your neck can occur from car accidents, sports, tripping and falling, and other high-intensity activities. It doesn’t always take a big accident to injure your neck; you could bump into something and accidentally throw it out.
When to Seek Help
Any type of neck pain is uncomfortable. Our licensed chiropractors will be able to assess and diagnose your pain and provide a specialized treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery. An untreated neck injury can become worse over time. If you have fallen or been in an accident, you should seek care as soon as possible.
