Chiropractic Tips to Cope with Neck Pain

By Sandy Schroeder

As you sit down to work, you may feel a familiar twinge of neck pain joining you.  Every year, almost 50 percent of the population runs into some form of neck pain. Some people have trouble turning their heads. Others have headaches or tingling in their arms.

The causes often begin with bad habits at home, and at work, that include poor posture, slumping and turning the neck during sleep.

If your neck pain is constant, have a doctor check it to make sure there are no underlying medical conditions.

Chiropractic Help

For neck pain that is intermittent, The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may be able to help you soothe the pain and learn better ways to keep your neck healthy.

The Joint is staffed with licensed chiropractors who see everyone from teens to adults to seniors on a daily basis.

When you come in, your chiropractor will want to talk about your neck pain, your daily routines and your medical history. He or she will explain the drug-free spinal health approach to pain. The goal will be to help you seek pain relief naturally without medication or surgery.

Chiropractic Relief

Your chiropractor believes healthy spines help create healthier people. Using a spinal adjustment to correct any dysfunctions may help relieve your neck pain. It may also create a broader range of benefits such as more energy, less stress, better sleep, or more mental clarity.

As you evaluate your results, take a closer look at your everyday habits.

Straighten Up – During long work sessions, or leisure time, avoid hunching over screens or laptops or slouching in front of the computer. Make sure your back is supported. Stretch your neck and move around frequently.

Monitor Check – Be sure your screen is sitting at eye level.

Driving Positions – Sit straight up with head and lower back supported. Move close enough so you are not leaning forward to reach the wheel.

Pillow Support – Protect your neck with cervical pillows when you sleep or sit, and use a pillow wedge when you read in bed.

Add A Stretch – Take a break, then lean your head toward the shoulder until you feel a stretch. Hold 15 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is ready when you are. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Convenient weekend and evening hours are available. Walk-in visits are welcome. No appointments are needed.
