There are many potential causes of neck pain. Neck pain can range from mild to severe and debilitating. Neck pain that is considered chronic may linger for months. Chiropractic care is the best form of treatment for neck pain. We have put together a list of questions our chiropractor at Counselman & Wade Chiropractic frequently receives regarding neck pain. We are located in Topeka, KS, and have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with our patients for many years.
What Are Some Causes of Neck Pain?
Neck pain has many causes. It can result from poor posture or even an injury to the neck. If you work in an office chair for the majority of your day, poor office ergonomics can put unnecessary stress on your neck that can cause pain. Neck pain can also be caused by strained joints or muscles resulting from an auto accident, sports injury, or chronic medical condition. If you spend too much time on your laptop, tablet, cell phone, or another device, it can lead to text neck which can be extremely painful.
What Are Some Common Neck Pain Symptoms?
Neck injuries alone can cause symptoms such as headaches, arm or leg numbness, back pain, arm weakness, and even dizziness. You may experience sharp pain and not be able to move your neck in various directions without pain. Text neck can cause both neck and shoulder stiffness if you constantly lean your head forward to use a digital device. Depending on the cause of your neck pain, symptoms may vary.
How Can a Chiropractor Treat My Neck Pain?
Chiropractic care can be very beneficial for neck pain when it is related to joint, muscle, and connective tissue, or caused by ligament injuries. All treatments administered by a chiropractor are non-invasive and drug-free. There is no need to worry about becoming dependent on pain pills. Most of the time, chiropractors will perform adjustments to help alleviate neck pain and promote natural healing. These adjustments, also better known as cervical manipulation can help loosen up the joints of the cervical vertebrae in the neck. This can result in a reduction of pain caused by spasms, pinched nerves, and more.
