Common Causes of Neck Pain
There are many potential causes of neck pain, so we first recommend that you schedule a comprehensive evaluation with us. During this appointment, we will focus on getting to know you and your medical history, as well as any specific symptoms you are currently experiencing. From there, we can recommend any diagnostics needed to determine the cause of your neck pain and related symptoms. Some of the more common symptoms patients tend to report with their neck pain include:
- neck and muscle stiffness
- unexplained headaches or migraines
- back pain
One of the most common causes of neck pain and stiffness we see in our office is that of whiplash, an injury most often sustained during car accidents. When this injury occurs, the tendons and muscles surrounding the upper (cervical) spine become torn and damaged, with pain and stiffness resulting as the body heals. Headaches are also a common side effect or symptom of this injury, though not experienced by everybody with whiplash.
Another potential cause of neck pain is spinal strain caused by poor posture or lack of lumbar support in day-to-day activities. We commonly see this among those who spend a lot of their workdays on their feet without proper orthopedic and lumbar support from their shoes, although desk workers can also experience neck strain due to a poor workstation ergonomics.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Regardless of the specific cause of your neck pain, there are chiro treatment options to consider and that we can offer at Grosman Family Chiropractic Clinic. With chiropractic care, you can enjoy receiving non-invasive and drug-free treatment that actually targets your symptoms at their source rather than attempting to "mask" them, as may be the case with prescription painkillers. Furthermore, because these are holistic treatment methods, there are less risks and side effects that come along with them
Spinal adjustments and manipulation are the most common treatments we recommend for neck pain and similar symptoms, as these methods allow us to correct alignment problems in the spinal column while promoting better blood and oxygen flow to damaged muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the area. This treatment is highly effective in whiplash patients, as well as those with herniated discs and similar neck injuries. Our Greensboro chiropractic team can also advise you on therapeutic exercises and other methods to help you find relief and improve overall spinal health.
