Neck pain is one of the most common complaints that a Chiropractor hears. Many people will experience some type of neck pain throughout their lives. The neck pain could be so severe that it can affect day to day tasks. Pain can be described as a shooting pain, a dull ache, or a pain that comes with moving your head a certain way,

Can Neck Pain Affect Anyone?

Neck pain can be caused by something as simple as twisting or bending the wrong way, lifting heavy objects, or performing the same motions repeatedly. Poor posture from sitting at an office all day staring at a computer can also lead to neck pain. In fact, the overuse of electronic devices such as computers, tablets, and smartphones produce a slumped posture called tech neck. All of these types of neck pain are most commonly caused by a vertebra that is out of alignment, resulting not only in neck pain but also in other complications as well, such as headaches, stiff shoulders, and even numbness or tingling in the arms. Almost everyone at some point has experienced neck pain in some form.

Is Chiropractic the Most Effective Way to Manage Neck Pain?

Many people turn to medication to manage neck pain but soon find themselves in just as much pain as before when the medication wears off. This is mainly due to the fact that medication only masks pain symptoms for a certain period of time instead of actually correcting the underlying problem. Before turning to medication or even serious surgeries, seek chiropractic care to manage neck pain. A chiropractor will gently assess the spine, looking for vertebrae that are out of alignment and then adjust the spine as necessary to correct the root problem behind the neck pain. Because sudden movements or continuous lifting can cause spinal misalignment's, it may be necessary to visit a chiropractor on a consistent basis to ensure neck pain doesn’t return. Many studies have shown that chiropractic care is incredibly effective in relieving neck pain.
