Easing Neck Pain With Chiropractic Care

By Stepy Kamei

Everyone complains about back pain, but what about neck pain? We've all woken up with a crick in the neck at some point in our lives. Or maybe you've dealt with a dull, aching pain all over the neck and upper shoulder area after a long day at work. When it comes down to it, neck pain is an extremely common health issue, and it can be brought on by all kinds of factors. What's helpful is knowing what you can do to safely yet effectively treat your neck pain when it occurs -- and perhaps more importantly, what you can do to prevent it from popping up in your life so often. Here's what a doctor of chiropractic can do to help ease your neck pain symptoms.

Understanding Neck Pain

Whether you've been dealing with chronic neck pain for years, or it's an acute issue that springs up whenever you sleep in an uncomfortable position or turn your head suddenly, neck pain is something to be taken seriously.

Simply put, the neck is a very important, yet very sensitive and vulnerable, area of the body. It can experience aches and pains very easily from being strained or overworked.

How Chiropractic Can Help

No matter what kind of neck pain you're experiencing, chiropractic can help. You may be wondering how a doctor of chiropractic, trained in the well-being of the spinal column, can help with neck issues.

The neck is also known as the cervical spine. This is because it begins at the base of the skull, and it is made up of seven vertebrae. The cervical spine is responsible for supporting the head while also keeping the head, neck, and upper shoulder region flexible. Unfortunately, the wear and tear of everyday life can create aches and pains in the neck, often caused by a subluxation, or "misalignment," within the spinal column.

Fortunately, chiropractors are trained to seek out these subluxations. From here, chiropractic care involves the use of gentle manual manipulation techniques in order to bring the spinal column back into its proper alignment. These techniques are safe and effective, and they do not involve the use of tools or invasive procedures.
