Today’s modern living often entails hours of driving or hunching over workstations, which plays havoc with our necks. So it is not surprising that neck pain is the second most common condition that chiropractors treat.
Typical symptoms of neck problems are caused by misalignments of the spinal segments in the upper back and neck. The neck, or cervical spine, is comprised of seven vertebrae surrounded by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If the vertebrae is pushed out of place by poor posture, accidents or falls, or overuse, the muscles and tendons will be forced to stretch too far, causing pain and discomfort. Until the spine and connective tissues are helped back into their normal positions, the pain usually does not go away.
As part of your initial consultation, we will conduct a physical examination along with spinal x-rays. This will help us fully understand the cause of your problem so the most effective and efficient chiropractic treatment, together with physical therapy, can be given.
Whether you are experiencing neck pain from normal daily life, or sustained an injury to the neck from a car accident, sporting injury, or accident at work, you would be wise to schedule an appointment for a thorough chiropractic examination.
