Chiropractic Care For Neck Pain and Stiffness

October 17, 2018 0

Are you suffering from pain and/or stiffness in the neck? Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for back and neck pain and other musculoskeletal issues.

It is common to treat neck pain with a ice pack and/or stretches, but sometimes more severe pain or the inability to turn your neck past your shoulder can mean a chiropractic visit may be necessary. Here are signs that will tell you need to see a chiropractor.

  • Neck pain or stiff doesn’t go away after a few days.
  • You can not turn your neck without feeling pain.
  • You are using pain relief drugs on a regular basis.
  • Your instincts are telling you there is a serious cause to the pain.
  • Neck pain has led to numbness or tingling in your hands or wrists.
  • Neck pain as a result from a card accident.
  • Neck pain is worse in the mornings.

A chiropractor will examine your neck and spine and ask questions to diagnose your problem. A treatment program will be tailored for your specific condition. For example, a neck adjustment is a common treatment for neck pain and focuses on re-aligning your vertebra and restoring motion in your neck. Neck stretches are recommended to loosen stiff muscles.

Causes of neck pain can be:

  • A pinched nerve
  • Poor posture
  • Bad sleeping habits as sleeping on your stomach or bad pillow
  • Putting your neck in awkward positions for long time periods
  • Whiplash

You can prevent neck pain by:

  • Practicing good posture
  • Keeping your computer monitor at eye level
  • Using a firm pillow
  • Sleeping on your side or back
  • Take steps to relieve stress
  • Regular exercise
  • Take micro-breaks if you have a desk job
