Common Causes of Neck Pain
There are a variety of reasons why your neck is causing you pain such as:
- Poor posture
- Jerking neck during exercise
- Sleeping with the neck in a bad position for too long
- Working at a desk too long in the same position
- Muscle strain and tension
Sports, car accidents, and falls result in neck injuries. This is due to the ligaments and other muscles of the neck being forced to move outside of what is considered a normal range. A whiplash injury can also cause neck injuries and pain.
Heart attacks have many symptoms, neck pain is one of them. Alongside neck pain, there are various other symptoms one will notice if they are indeed suffering from a heart attack such as shortness of breath and sweating.
- Spinal stenosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
How can a chiropractor help?
Neck pain treatment is based on a variety of different things depending on your unique situation. Normally chiropractors will typically use neck adjustments, which are also called cervical manipulation to help in reducing neck pain. This method helps by loosening the joints of the cervical vertebrae. This method also works better for people that are dealing with muscle spasms and pinched nerves in their neck. Chiropractors will also use other adjustments that will consist of applying force to the joint in a way that is beyond the range in which the neck is used to moving. This is a great method for tissue damage and joints that poorly move.
Keep in mind that if you are feeling numbness or pain in your arm, leg, or shoulder, you should avoid any chiropractic care for your neck. This is because these signs indicate a possible spinal cord injury. Also, if are suffering from vomiting, headaches, or fever in addition to your neck pain, you should avoid chiropractic care. Instead, you should go to the emergency room.
