Neck Pain Chiropractic Care
You spine takes the brunt of all your daily activities which can cause one or more of your vertebra to shift out of alignment. When they shift, they can crowd or “pinch” the nerves that run between them causing neck pain. Causes of neck pain are endless. Chronic, long term neck pain can be caused by a number of things, including: sleeping position, poor posture, whiplash caused by a car accident or sports injury, or even a blow to the head. If left untreated, minor neck pains can easily cause severe neck pain, making it hard to sleep or perform daily activities.
Chiropractors specialize in treatment for neck pain. After an initial consultation, your chiropractor will take x-rays and develop a treatment plan. This plan will usually include chiropractic adjustments and specific neck exercises that can be done on your own. Seeing your chiropractor for neck pain is always a good choice if you are aware of a specific circumstance that resulted in neck pain such as lifting, falling or a whiplash injury. Through chiropractic therapy your chiropractor can re-align your vertebrae and restore normal motion in your neck.
