Neck Pain

If you are one of the many Americans that suffer with neck pain, you will be pleased to know that our proven chiropractic approach may offer the solution you have been searching for. One out of ten of us will have neck pain at some time in our life. In most cases it is not due to a serious disease or neck problem and often the exact cause for the pain is not clear. Most are probably due to minor sprains or bad posture. This comes as no surprise when we consider the activities of modern life such as sitting in front of a computer, watching prolonged periods of television and an increasing incidence of poor posture – particularly forward head posture.

Problems within the neck can also cause headache, shoulder pain, TMJ or jaw pain, pins and needles in the hands, carpal tunnel syndrome and upper back pain.

In the morning you may wake up with a sore neck
Reversing the car and turning your head, your neck may feel stiff

After all, there are hundreds of different muscles and joints that can go wrong. Fortunately, there’s an effective way to treat many of the problems you can experience.

Causes and Types of Neck Pain
One survey done has found that, of adults aged 45-75 years, about 1 in 4 women and about 1 in 5 men had current neck pain. By far the most common cause of neck pain relates to the effects of poor posture. In order to understand the impact of poor posture, we must first consider why spinal alignment within the neck is so important. Coupled with the stresses and demands of modern life, it is no surprise why neck pain is so common. Because neck pain could be an indicator of various illnesses, we will ask questions such as general health, past medical history, weight loss, bladder and bowel control, quality of appetite and sleep and medication usage.
