We Treat Neck Pain
Neck pain can vary from mild to severe pain that interferes with your daily activities and lowers your quality of life. The pain might just start as aching, stiff shoulder muscles that seem to get worse with time. Most people go for painkillers to stop the symptoms but the longer the problem is left untreated, the more the damage can be to the discs and bones in your neck.
With the long hours of computer use, poor posture and lack of proper exercise, neck pain has become a major problem in the society. Neck pain is among the most common problems that bring people to Wellness In Motion Chiropractic Center.
The neck has seven vertebrae from the base of the skull to the shoulder. There are discs that work together with the bones to make it possible for you to move your neck and head. The neck is highly flexible, and this makes it vulnerable to injuries such as damages to the muscles, ligaments, and discs.
Causes Of Neck Pain
Before we look at the treatment of neck pain through chiropractic care, it is important to highlight a few causes of neck pain.
Poor Spinal Function: If the vertebral joints in the back and neck are not working as they should, they can greatly affect nerves, muscles and the discs in the neck.
Injuries: Injuries like whiplash or repetitive injuries to the neck can lead to neck pain. Some injuries can cause pain long after they happen.
Postural Change: Poor work ergonomics, poor muscle strength, and tone, prolonged sitting ad reduced spinal movement can lead to pain in the neck.
Spinal Degeneration: The wear and tear of discs and vertebrae over a long period is another neck pain cause.
Medical Conditions: There are medical conditions such as infections, fractures, and tumors that can be the underlying causes of pain.
Symptoms Of Neck Pain
Headaches are the most common neck pain symptoms. The headaches occur on both the back and the front of the skull. There is also pain with movement and muscle spasms and aches. If there is pressure on the nerves going to the shoulder and arms, there will be radiating pain in the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. Other symptoms may include ringing in the ears, dizziness and visual problems.
