All About Neck Pain

By Sara Butler

Neck pain is tricky. Sometimes it can be relieved by movement, but at other times movement makes it worse! Often, people with neck pain experience restricted movement. Yes, neck pain is certainly no fun and can be a huge disruption in daily life. If you suffer from acute or chronic neck pain, then the chiropractors at The Joint may be able to help. Here’s how!

The Signs of Neck Pain

Often, neck pain is experienced as pain that:

  • Feels like tight muscles
  • Gets worse when holding your head in one position for too long
  • Causes sharp spasms when you try to move your neck
  • Radiates to your shoulders or head
  • Causes restriction of movement

If any (or all!) of these sound familiar, then you should get evaluated by a chiropractor at The Joint as soon as you can!

The Causes of Neck Pain

You may be wondering at this point how the heck you ended up with neck pain in the first place. The sneaky thing about neck pain is that it can strike suddenly, leaving you wondering what happened. The most common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle sprain or strain – Poor posture or overuse from repetitive activities such as working at a computer all day can cause sprain or strains in the muscles of the neck. It can also be caused by sleeping in a way that doesn’t properly support the neck and spine.
  • Injuries – Whiplash is the most common neck injury, caused by a sudden deceleration during impact in an accident such as a fall, contact sports, or motor vehicle accidents.
  • Worn joints – As you age, the joints in your neck can wear down, causing the cartilage that helps to absorb shock between your vertebrae to deteriorate.
  • Compressed nerves – Herniated discs in the spine can press on nerves, causing pain.

How the Chiropractor Can Help

Neck pain can be treated in a variety of ways; it really depends on what is causing your pain in the first place. The chiropractors at The Joint will work to get to the root cause of your pain, find it, and then begin a treatment plan to directly treat the cause, not just cover the symptoms. Chiropractic care is natural and effective and can be combined with other therapies to help you find relief from your neck pain.

You don't have to live with neck pain. Let the chiropractors at The Joint help!
