Help for Your Neck Pain
Neck pain is a common problem that affects individuals of all ages. It can be caused by a wide variety of activities and disorders, resulting in difficulty while performing your daily tasks. Chiropractic care can help your neck pain issues, with drug-free, non-invasive techniques that effectively relieve pain and stiffness. At Cole Chiropractic Center in Cordova, we help our patients that are experiencing chronic neck pain.
Neck Pain Symptoms
You may experience tenderness in the neck with spasms in the muscles. You may also have difficulty turning your head from side to side. The pain can be dull and constant or sharp and intermittent. Individuals may also have burning and tingling sensations in the neck area that is associated with nerve compression. The inability to move your neck normally can interfere with work, recreational activities, and normal social interactions. The pain may radiate to your shoulders or arms. Frequent headaches may also be associated with neck pain.
The Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can be the result of an injury, such as an auto accident or athletic activities. The muscles, tendons, and ligaments can sustain an injury. Degenerative conditions can cause problems with the discs in the neck, which may lead to pain and poor mobility. Arthritis can also lead to chronic neck pain. If you sit at a computer during your workday, you may develop neck pain from holding your head in the same position for many hours at a time. Bending over your smartphone screen can also lead to neck issues.
Chiropractic Techniques Can Help Neck Discomfort
We will perform a thorough evaluation before creating an individualized care plan to relieve your pain and restore your range of motion. Manual adjustments are the mainstay of chiropractic care, to re-align the spinal vertebrae and relieve pressure on the discs and nerves. Corrective exercises may be needed to strengthen the supporting muscles that allow free movement of the neck and head. Soft tissue techniques can relieve your pain and improve movement. Our chiropractors may also recommend a few ergonomic changes for your home and work environment to prevent re-injury of the neck area.
