Chiropractic & Neck Pain
Neck pain is an epidemic in today's society. Millions of people suffer daily. Everyone from children, teens, adults, and the elderly are at risk. Statistics show that people are likely to suffer from neck pain at least once during their lifetime.
Neck pain is a "mechanical" problem due to spinal misalignment(s) and fatiguing posture. Neck pain is not a "chemical" problem. It's not due to a lack of pain-killers and/or muscle relaxers. That's not to say that pain-killers and/or muscle relaxers aren't helpful for painful flare-ups. Its to say that the drugs aren't the solution to the root cause of the problem. One study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who received chiropractic care reported significant improvement in their function and a reduction in their neck pain whereas those withpain-killers did not.
Common causes of neck pain:
Trauma / Injury - A one-time injury such as a motor vehicle accident, sporting injury, and or slip and fall.
Repetitive stress - Improper nightly sleep positions, occupational ergonomics, prolong sitting/standing/typing/mobile phone use.
Neck pain is often associated with such symptoms as headaches, migraines, pain across the shoulders, numbness/tingling into the arms, hands, and/or fingers (carpal tunnel syndrome), and TMJ problems.
The Chiropractic approach focuses on correcting spinal and postural misalignments and restoring the body's balance. A thorough Chiropractic treatment plan should consist of specific Chiropractic adjustments, stretches, strengthening exercises, and ergonomic considerations.
