Neck Pain FAQ
Neck pain is one of the most common conditions that we see here at Optimum Health Chiropractic Center. We've become experts in treating neck pain and associative headaches. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked regarding neck pain and the chiropractic care plans associated with them.
What are some of the causes of neck pain?
Neck pain can come from both sports-related and personal injuries such as slips and falls and sprains. There can be trouble when sleeping on a bad mattress and other ergonomic problems. Neck pain is commonly found to be a symptom of holding the neck in a strain for a prolonged period.
Poor posture is another source of neck pain that chiropractors can see regularly. Lastly, in today’s technological advances, we see a lot of “text neck” where headaches and neck pain are associated with a stooped-over appearance while texting. Keeping the head and neck at a texting angle is harsh on the muscles and stresses the vertebrae.
How does chiropractic care help neck pain?
There are many benefits to receiving chiropractic care for your neck pain and stiffness. There isn’t medication involved and you will not be given a surgical treatment plan. Chiropractic care is an all-natural way to get relief and is non-invasive. We use both spinal manipulation and soft-tissue work to realign the body to where there is no pain.
What are methods that can be used along with chiropractic care to help lessen neck pain?
Used in conjunction with a good chiropractic care plan, using massage therapy can help loosen tight muscles and increase circulation. Doing other forms of stretching and exercising the area can help maintain muscle strength and will help prevent future injuries. Lastly, some lifestyle modifications can help you prevent neck pain and help prolong the benefits of your chiropractic care plan.
