Neck Pain Q&A
What are the primary causes of neck pain?
Neck pain can develop for many reasons, but the most common causes include poor posture, repetitive stress, overuse injuries, and carrying or lifting unbalanced loads. The neck is also affected by issues in the back and even arms.
How does chiropractic care help relieve the symptoms of neck pain?
Chiropractic care realigns the vertebrae of the spine to help relieve inflammation that can cause nerve irritation and malfunction. Once your spine is aligned, it’s better able to support the body both at rest and in motion. Chiropractic care balances out uneven forces and stresses, which aids pain-free function.
What steps can I take to prevent neck pain in the future?
Lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and increasing exercise, can help to prevent neck pain. It’s also important to get evaluated and treated as soon as you notice pain or stiffness.
