Neck Pain Treatment at Herron Family Chiropractic
Auto accident injuries, repetitive strains, personal injuries, and staring at smartphones or computers for a long time can cause your neck to misalign. Once the neck pain starts, it can be challenging to resolve without proper treatment. At Herron Family Chiropractic in Bowmanville, our team can help you get the relief you need with gentle and effective chiropractic techniques.
What Is Neck Pain?
The neck, also known as the cervical spine, has multiple ligaments, tendons, and muscles that work with each other to help you move. When these soft tissues get irritated or inflamed, you can feel sensations like sharp pain, stiffness, tenderness, soreness, and pain that radiates around your neck and upper body. You may also have limited motion of your neck. If your neck pain is persistent, severe, or accompanied by other symptoms like numbness and headaches, it is time to see us for chiropractic treatment.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
With more people working from home, neck pain is on the rise. Most people ignore their posture in the comfort of their own space. The act of looking down at a smartphone also puts pressure on the soft tissues and neck vertebrae. Whiplash from a car accident is another cause of neck pain. Repetitive motions that result in the overuse of the neck muscles can create a stiff neck. Another cause of neck pain is due to pinched or trapped nerves. A trapped nerve can make it difficult to move your head in specific directions because of the pain or irritation it causes.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
Once our chiropractor has evaluated you, we will develop a treatment plan just for you. In most cases, this treatment plan will consist of spinal adjustment or cervical spinal adjustment. This non-invasive form of treatment will help to bring the vertebrae of the neck back into alignment.
Chiropractic care for neck pain also involves using gentle chiropractic adjustments and stretches to release trapped nerves, loosen stiff muscles, and reduce restrictions caused by tight tendons and ligaments in the neck. During treatment, our chiropractor treats the source of your pain and looks for other areas that may have been affected by neck pain. Seeking our treatment early on prevents existing conditions from worsening.
