The neck is supported by many muscles and ligaments. Neck pain most often occurs when the joints, muscles and ligaments in the neck become irritated or inflamed. Further, it can range from minor and easily ignore, to excruciating and debilitating. In brief, here are some common symptoms of neck pain include:
- Neck stiffness with limited range of motion
- Concentrated sharp or stabbing pain
- General soreness or tenderness
- Radiating pain (can eventually lead from the neck to shoulders, arms, fingers and head)
Some causes of neck pain include sleeping in an abnormal position, poor posture, falling, sports injuries or whiplash. In rare cases, it is also caused by growth abnormalities, infections, tumours and even cancer.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Neck Pain?
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve discomfort caused by neck pain. Furthermore, routine chiropractic care provides patients with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications.
Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive therapy known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions in the spine with the goal to reduce inflammation and improve function of the joints. By improving your joint and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage the discomfort in the neck.
Below are some of the benefits chiropractic care can provide patients with neck problems:
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved flexibility
- Increased activity and lifestyle
