Dealing With Neck Pain: Where to Begin

By Stephen R. Farris

Often times we may experience neck pain. This could be from sleeping at night in an awkward position to a sudden jolt, such as getting rear-ended in an automobile accident. The pain could be related to a sports injury from football, basketball, soccer or rugby, naming a few. Whatever the case may be, the pain can create an impact on our everyday lifestyle.

A visit to your primary doctor or chiropractor, such as The Joint Chiropractic, might be the first big step toward recovery so you can start enjoying your favorite activities again.

Most Likely Causes

As mentioned earlier, sports or other physical activities are cause for neck-related injuries. However, automobile accidents are the leading cause, usually due to the sudden whipping motion. The damage may appear instantly or it could begin to show up the next day or week. A visit to The Joint Chiropractic can help with sudden jolt neck injuries, as well as back and joint pain.

As We Age, So Do Our Joints and Muscles

The older we become, our joints and muscles begin experiencing stiffness and that includes the neck area as well. Osteoarthritis could set in, causing bone spurs in the neck area thus making it more painful. Spinal stenosis could be the culprit, causing not only pain in the neck, but in the shoulder and arms. Other conditions and diseases may develop as we age too. Poor posture can come into play in dealing with neck pain, or emotional stress that can cause tension.

Be Upfront With Your Chiropractor

On your visit to The Joint Chiropractic, be sure to let your chiropractor know if the pain you're experiencing in your neck extends to other parts of your body. Tell them if you have been doing anything for it, or if certain things make it feel better or feel worse. The more you tell them, the better they can access the areas and begin treatment in order to help your overall well-being.

Suffering from neck pain could also result in lost time on the job. After all, we depend on our neck to look around without turning our whole body for example. The first step is to visit your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. The Joint can also offer suggestions for a healthier diet and exercise too.
