Although neck pain is a fairly common source of discomfort in both children and adults today, there’s no reason you should simply live with the pain. If you are dealing with sudden acute neck pain, or chronic neck problems, there’s a good chance that chiropractic care can help. A visit to Arlington Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., in Arlington Heights can help determine the source of your pain to see if chiropractic care is the right choice for you. The following neck pain FAQs will give you greater insight into the causes and symptoms of neck pain and the treatments used to achieve relief.
What Can Be Classified as Neck Pain?
Although neck pain may originate in the neck area, it often affects your head, shoulders, and arms. You may experience one-sided or double-sided headaches, a stiff neck, sore shoulders, muscle spasms and knots, or a tingling feeling in your fingers and arms.
Acute neck pain may come on intensely and suddenly due to an injury or trauma. Pain that lingers for months on end is often classified as chronic neck pain. It can start off as mild pain and increase in intensity as time goes on.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Some of the most common causes of neck pain are:
- Personal injuries due to tripping, slips and falls, or bumping your head
- Improper sleeping positions
- Auto accident injuries
- Workplace injuries
- Sports injuries
- Poor posture
- Text neck due to overuse of mobile devices
How Does Chiropractic Care Help with Neck Pain?
Chiropractic treatments help alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, and help restore range of motion to the cervical spine. Our doctors at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic use techniques such as adjustments or spinal manipulation to loosen tense muscles and realign imbalanced joints that are contributing to your pain and discomfort. Corrective exercise instruction and massage therapy are available to restore balance and correct posture to your spine.
