Why is neck pain so common?

If you have ever suffered from neck pain or stiffness, you are not alone. In fact, neck pain is one of the most common reasons that patients seek chiropractic care.

The neck, or cervical spine, is a delicate and complicated system. It consists of seven small vertebrae that bear the full weight of your head. The neck is also unique in its ability to flex in almost any direction. This flexibility can make the cervical spine more susceptible to developing pain or injury.

What are the most frequent causes of neck pain?

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of different conditions. Many people seek chiropractic care for neck pain for one of the following reasons:

  • Injury from a car accident
  • Repetitive motion
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Obesity
  • Poor posture
  • Sports injury or other impact injury
  • Workplace accidents
  • Degenerative disc disease

There are many other causes of neck pain as well. If you are experiencing neck pain, consider speaking to your doctor or chiropractor about treatment options that can help.

How can chiropractic care help?

You may be surprised to learn of the many ways that seeing a chiropractor can help ease and heal your neck pain.  Chiropractors use a practice called cervical manipulation to adjust and re-align the cervical spine.  This can help improve mobility and restore range of motion. It can also positively impact movement of the adjoining muscles.

Research has shown that patients with chronic neck pain have been able to achieve significant improvements through following a course of chiropractic care. This care is also a natural alternative to using drugs or surgery to deal with severe neck pain.

To learn what you can expect from chiropractic care for neck pain, schedule a consultation to discuss your specific case. Your chiropractor may also recommend complementary care, such as massage or rehabilitive exercises, to help you feel better even faster.
