What is Neck Pain?
People experience neck pain at some point in their lives. Working on the computer, using our mobile devices, participating in sports, and living an active lifestyle are linked to neck pain. Most cases of neck resolve within a few days, but chronic neck pain can last for weeks or even months. The other areas of your body may suffer because you change your posture or body mechanics to compensate for the pain.
What Causes Neck Pain?
- Poor posture and body mechanics
- Auto accidents and other types of trauma
- Sports injuries
What is Neck Pain Treatment?
Our neck pain treatments are intended to alleviate your discomfort and other symptoms by helping your body heal naturally and restoring function to your neck and other affected areas. We offer treatments for many types of neck pain, such as:
- Pinched nerves
- Stiff neck
Whiplash is most often considered and auto accident condition, but it can occur in several situations. What happens when you develop whiplash is that your head is thrust forward and backward in a sudden and jerking motion. This can cause tears in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the neck, as well as inflammation, pinched nerves, and other problems.
Pinched Nerves in the Neck
Pinched nerves in the neck are caused by inflammation or a slipped disc. This places pressure on the nerve that may result in persistent pain or pain when you move your neck, arms, and shoulders.
Stiff Neck Treatment
Someone who has a stiff neck typically cannot move the head from side-to-side without pain. You may also have shoulder pain, headaches, and other symptoms. The stiffness may feel as if it originates in the muscles, but in most cases, a stiff neck is an issue in the cervical spine.
