Why Does My Neck Hurt?
Some of the primary causes of neck pain include osteoarthritis, pinched nerves, herniated discs, tendonitis, bone spurs, misaligned vertebrae, poor posture or sleeping position, muscles sprains and strains, whiplash and repetitive activities that affect the cervical spine.
When the joints and tissues become inflamed, the symptom is pain and it can range from mild to severe, affecting every aspect of your daily life. When you lose mobility in your neck and just looking to the side causes severe pain, all you want is a solution.
Chiropractic for Neck Pain
Surgery and drugs are common neck pain treatments, but for natural treatment that provides lasting relief, chiropractic care is effective. Pain medication will only cover up the symptoms of pain and won’t address the root cause of what is causing you so much discomfort.
You may experience some temporary relief, but once the medication wears off the pain will return and the cycle continues. And neck surgery can be risky, with prolonged recovery and rehabilitation.
With chiropractic adjustments, your cervical vertebrae are gently manipulated with short lever thrusts to help your body heal. Adjustments are performed manually using the hands, or with a specialized tool. Carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen are released from the joints during the adjustment, which results in the cracking sound that you can hear with each thrust.
Some common symptoms associated with neck pain that may be helped by a visit to our chiropractor include:
- Pain in your neck that radiates up into your head
- Severe headache
- Inability to turn your head from side to side
- Inability to look up to the ceiling
- Inability to look down to the floor
- A dull, aching pain in your neck that persists
- Tenderness in the neck, shoulders and upper back
- General stiffness in your neck area
