Types of Neck Pain and Common Causes
Aches: Aching may be confined to the neck area, but often, it spreads to your shoulders and upper back. It is often caused by postural problems such as looking down at your smart phone or computer keyboard for most of the day. In some cases, you may get this pain from repetitive head movements related to work or some other activity, as well.
Sharp Pains: These are often caused by injuries or pinched nerves. Whenever you move your head in the "wrong" way, you aggravate the problem and it sends a sharp pain in response. Fractures and other such issues can cause sudden jolts of pain as well.
Tingling, Weakness, and Other Neurological Symptoms: Sensations like this indicate nerve involvement. A bulging or herniated disc and some spinal misalignments can cause these symptoms in the neck.
Preventing Neck Pain
Good posture is the best preventive of neck pain. If a work situation requires you to make unhealthy movements, you need to change your setup so these movements are no longer needed. Finally, take care to avoid accidents as much as possible.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
If your neck already hurts, seeing a chiropractor will allow you to greatly speed up healing and get relief. Our doctor will use a combination of manual cervical traction, cervical mobilization, and the cervical drop technique to loosen up your neck and get everything properly aligned. Other treatments may be added as needed.
