Why Does My Neck Hurt All the Time?
One reason people suffer chronic neck pain is an injury that they don't remember. You may have heard about whiplash. It's an injury that people suffer when they are in a car that comes to a sudden stop, such as in an auto accident. The car stops, but your body keeps going forward until it's restrained by a seat belt or an airbag. Tiny tears form in neck muscles as a result of the neck’s overextension.
You might not even feel these microscopic injuries to the muscles in your neck. However, over time, the symptoms may begin to manifest. Your spine may have also been thrown of alignment during this auto accident. This misalignment might also cause a number of issues.
The result can be constant pain, or numbness, or both, along with increasing immobility. You might change your posture to reduce the pain, and the problem might only get worse.
It's not just auto accidents that cause this kind of injury. Sports injuries and falls are also sources of neck pain. Unfortunately, patients might not even remember the injury that started the problem.
What Can Chiropractic Care Do for Neck Pain?
The first thing a chiropractor can do for your neck pain is to give you an accurate diagnosis. Chiropractic care can help relieve symptoms of neck pain but it can also potentially help correct the causes of continuing neck pain.
Our chiropractor will probably treat you with spinal adjustments. It seeks to move the spine back into alignment. Along with instruction in proper posture and learning some exercises to prevent future neck problems, you can get better over the course of your treatment.
Does Chiropractic Treatment Hurt?
Chiropractic treatment is largely painless. One goal of chiropractic treatment is to achieve pain relief without drugs or surgery. Many patients might even find chiropractic care to be relaxing.
