Looking Over Your Shoulder Can Hurt

By Tom Herrin

The ability people have to move their heads and look around is something very simple.  They often take it for granted. Certain mobility is a given to so many people that they may never think of what such an impairment is like. Loss of that mobility can happen in an instant to any of us. A sudden turning of the head, when those same muscles have been severely worked, can end up with a chain of events that may result in pain in the neck.  There is nothing quite like pain in the neck because it is so close to the head. That pain may intensify and make a person feel as if they are destined for a painful existence. If this sounds too familiar to you, a trip to a chiropractor may turn your pain away.

Strained Muscles Can Happen

Overworked muscles are not just the ones that lift heavy objects.  People move their heads almost unconsciously, especially when they are driving or doing something that requires a lot of looking left and right.  The simple training most have to look both ways is good -- you often have to cover the blind spots manually -- but in heavy traffic or something similar, it can wear or stretch the muscles. When this happens, a joint dysfunction can occur in which pressure is placed on a nerve.  This causes pain.

Chiropractors Are Good with Relieving Pain

With an adjustment, chiropractors can gently manipulate the spine so that the injured joint is restored to its natural position.  This can relieve pressure from the nerve that is causing discomfort. It is a natural form of pain relief, so no pain medications are needed.  There is no risk of side effects or addiction. Chiropractors often suggest exercises that can help to strengthen the muscles that support the injured joint.  Healing can be faster.

Regular Visits Can Protect Health

Many people who experience the relief provided by chiropractors choose to have regular visits as they like the feeling of the joints working well.  At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans that can work the way you need them to. No insurance is required, no appointments are necessary. They are open days and evenings, weekdays and weekends at all of their more than 400 locations nationwide.  If you have pain from looking over your shoulder, or from anything else, drop in at The Joint Chiropractic today and get that feeling of mobility back.
