Can Chiropractic Help Relieve Neck Pain?

By Stepy Kamei

If you find yourself experiencing neck pain, whether it's an intermittent issue or a chronic one, you're certainly not alone in your struggle. Neck pain is a common health issue which impacts millions of Americans every year. But what exactly causes neck pain? More importantly, how can you go about finding relief from it?  If you suffer from neck pain, and you'd like to learn more about how you can treat, or even prevent, it from bothering you, keep on reading to learn about how the gentle touch of chiropractic care can help you.

All About the Neck

In order to understand how the neck can be so susceptible to aches and pains, it helps to know how exactly it functions as part of the body. You may not realize just how important the neck is when it comes to supporting the body. The neck, which houses the cervical spine, is entirely responsible for supporting the entire weight of the head. Furthermore, the cervical spine is incredibly flexible, which allows you to move your head in many different directions with relative ease. Unfortunately, this flexibility is what makes the neck so vulnerable to aches, pains, and other issues.

A non-ergonomically friendly work station, poor sleeping and standing posture, and a lack of stretching the neck throughout the day can all contribute to poor cervical spine health. This is why it helps to take the time to do an assessment of your daily routine, from your work day to your evening activities, to see where you may be straining your cervical spine in an unnecessary way.

How Chiropractic Supports Neck Health

As you can imagine, the health of the cervical spine is crucial to maintain. When the cervical spine is impacted in any way, you're more likely to experience tension, aches, discomfort, and stiffness in the area.

This is where chiropractic care, along with healthy everyday lifestyle habits, can make a big difference in determining how healthy your neck is.

While working, be sure to avoid straining the neck area. Make sure your computer screen is at eye level, so you aren't craning your neck down and placing pressure on the cervical spine. Also, be sure to get up and move throughout the day, in order to keep the spine flexible and limber.

Finally, consider seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis. Chiropractors often see subluxations, or misalignments, in their patient's cervical spine area, due to poor posture and strains while working. Using gentle manual manipulation techniques, chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic clinics can safely and effectively bring the cervical spine back into its proper alignment. This often relieves pressure and pain for many clients. When performed on a regular basis, chiropractic adjustments are even known to prevent aches and pains throughout the neck, shoulders, and back.
