Can whiplash be the cause of my neck pain?
If your neck pain was the result of a recent car accident, you could have whiplash. Whiplash is a neck injury that can occur when your head is thrust around uncontrollably due to a sudden impact, like that of a car collision. The force of your head movement can tear muscles and tissues in your neck or dislocate joints in your cervical spine, causing pain.
What are some other causes of neck pain?
Poor posture or improper neck alignment can put a strain on neck muscles, causing pain. Text neck is a prime example. Most people let their head droop forward when using digital devices for long periods of time. This puts undue stress on neck muscles, causing neck pain and stiffness. Spinal conditions like herniated discs and degenerative disc disease can also cause neck pain by pressing on spinal nerves.
Are there any common symptoms that accompany neck pain?
In addition to pain, neck pain can be accompanied by neck stiffness, dizziness, headaches, arm numbness or weakness, and loss of neck mobility.
How does chiropractic care provide neck pain relief?
Our chiropractor makes use of holistic techniques and therapies to treat neck pain and help your injury or condition heal. If your pain is caused by displaced muscles or joints in your cervical spine, adjustments help ease these structures back into alignment to reduce muscle tension and restore pain-free neck mobility. Pain caused by herniated disc can be relieved with spinal decompression. This technique shifts the disc off of spinal nerves to reduce painful symptoms. Soft tissue massage, acupuncture, and stretching exercises can also help with neck pain recovery. We’ll teach you exercises you can do at home to improve neck flexibility and range of motion.
