Neck Pain and Chiropractic Care
Neck pain is a problem many people have. There are some signs that could be a warning that you are suffering from neck problems other than just pain, however. Some of these signs may include neck pain. However, you may also have pain in other areas. You may experience muscle tightness, muscle spasms, and headaches. You may even find that you cannot turn your neck or move your head. If you hold your head in the same position for an extended period, the pain may get worse. If you experience any of these symptoms or other neck pain and live in the Irvine, CA, area, visit our chiropractor at Confluence Chiropractic today.
What Causes Neck Pain?
The main function of your neck is to support the weight of your head and, as a result, may cause neck pain, including strained muscles. There are several causes for these types of strains, including overuse of a computer or phone and bad posture may cause these strains. The joints in your neck weaken with time, much like other joints in your body. A car accident may cause a whiplash injury, which is damage to the soft tissue in your neck. You may have a herniated disk that compresses the nerves in your neck.
What Treatment Helps Neck Pain?
Chiropractic care can provide pain relief for neck pain. During your visit, you will receive an exam to understand the source and location of the pain. Next, our chiropractor asks questions about your history and injury. From here, they will create a care plan which may include manipulation of your neck. During this process, pressure is applied to your neck to increase your range of motion and mobility. This procedure reduces stiffness pain while improving the rotation and movement of your neck.
