Learning the Important Facts about Neck Pain
Your neck is the bridge between your torso and head and is responsible for the precise movements of your head. It has seven vertebrae and uses several ligaments and muscles for support. Neck pain is often caused when your neck ligaments, joints, and muscles become inflamed or irritated. You can ignore the neck pain when it is minor and subsides itself, but if it gets debilitating and excruciating, it could be due to some other reasons which require a chiropractic examination and warrant immediate medical attention. Common symptoms include:
• General tenderness or soreness
• Stiff neck and limited motion, headaches, migraines
• Radiating pain that reaches shoulders, head, arms, and fingers
Listed below are some causes of neck pain:
• Accidents and injury
• Growing age
• Degenerative disc
• Spinal stenosis
• Daily lifestyle
Dr. Allen Conrad will examine your entire spine to see whether or not other areas of the neck, low back, and mid back are affected or not. Depending on the findings, he will design a chiropractic neck pain treatment plan. We will also educate on other aspects, such as stress management, lifestyle goals, and nutrition as well.
Our neck pain chiropractic care is a great way to relieve and manage discomfort and swelling. We will help you provide a non-addictive, safe, and non-surgical alternative to medications and surgery, which are usually what doctors recommend for managing swelling and pain.
We use gentle and non-invasive chiropractic adjustment to reduce misalignments and restrictions of joints in the body, including the joints in the spine, to improve function and reduce inflammation of the joints in question as well as the entire nervous system. As your joint becomes more mobile and your nervous system starts functioning as it is supposed to, your body is in a better position to manage the discomfort and pain.
