Neck pain and accident injury relief
Neck pain is discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. This include muscles, nerves, ligaments, as well as the spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks in between. The pain may also stem from areas near the neck such as the shoulder, jaw, head, and upper arms.
When your neck is sore, you may have difficulty moving it, especially to one side. Many people describe this as having a stiff neck or torticollis.
If neck pain involves nerves you may feel numbness, tingling, pins or needles sensation, as well as weakness in your arm, hand, or elsewhere. An example that would cause these symptoms are significant muscle spasms pinching on a nerve or a disk herniation pressing on a nerve.
A common cause of neck discomfort is muscle strain or tension. Everyday activities are often the blame of these types of injuries. Such activities include bending over a desk for hours or poor posture while reading. Neck issues also occur by placing your computer monitor too high or low, and sleeping in an uncomfortable and unnatural positions.
Chiropractic care for neck pain relief
Another common cause of neck injuries are from automobile accidents, known as whiplash. Whiplash injuries should be evaluated immediately by a Chiropractic physician after a car accident. Chiropractors can rule out any major soft tissue injuries such as disk herniations or disk bulges to the spine through diagnostic images such as MRI’s or CT scans.
Chiropractors are able to treat neck pain by performing specific adjustments to the neck. They use their hands in a slight motion to help remove any nerve interference that may be the result of misaligned vertebrae in the cervical spine. Disk herniations and disk bulges are very common injuries to the neck and back after an accident. Herniations caused from motor vehicle accidents commonly cause nerve impingements. Some of the best diagnostic tools for herniation are CT scans and MRI’s. To find out more about neck pain click here.
