Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common complaint caused by various health conditions.
It includes acute conditions, like muscle strains, and chronic conditions, such as cervical spondylosis and myofascial pain syndrome. Pinched nerves, fractures, and spinal cord problems can cause neck pain.
Here are some common causes of neck pain

Whiplash Injury

The neck protects the spinal cord. A fracture or other injury of the neck can damage the cord. Therefore, all neck injuries must be on a spine board until cleared.

One of the most common diseases in modern life today is neck pain. A recent report highlighted that there had been an increase in neck and back pain problems in recent years.

Chiropractors use different techniques, including spinal manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and exercise, to help patients with neck pain. Sometimes, chiropractic care may be a safe and effective alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medications.

However, patients must discuss their treatment options with a healthcare provider and consider potential risks and benefits before starting any new treatment.

Four ways chiropractors can treat neck pain

Spinal manipulations

Spinal manipulations are a way for chiropractors to treat a patient’s spine to improve the body’s overall functioning. Spinal manipulations help remove any misalignments within the spine, which in turn helps reduce inflammation.

Neck adjustments

Neck adjustments aim to restore proper neck alignment, relieve pain, reduce muscle inflammation, and eliminate any tension built up within the neck muscles. Neck adjustments are similar to spinal manipulations, but the focus is on adjusting the neck. Some chiropractors will perform this manual adjustment using special chiropractic instruments.

Exercise and stretches

Neck Pain Exercise
Everyone who experiences neck problems requires special treatment. It will depend on each patient regarding what type of exercises they need to undergo. Sometimes those experiencing neck pain need to perform specific exercises or stretches that can benefit the neck.

Massage therapy

Chiropractic massage therapy not only supports neck pain but also helps prevent patients from experiencing pain again. The final goal of chiropractic massage treatment is to bring out the person’s natural healing ability. Patients may undergo this treatment by sitting in a chiropractic massage chair or lying on a chiropractic table.
