Treatment for Neck Pain
Many people suffer from neck pain occasionally or even chronically. When you need to see a doctor for neck pain treatment, turn to Corrective Chiropractic, located in London, Ontario. Our chiropractor will find the cause of your problem and provide a drug-free natural solution.
What Causes Neck Pain
Neck pain can be caused when your muscles are tense and strained. Often, it is the result of some type of accident. Whiplash is one of the most common causes of neck pain which is often the result of a car accident. However, more serious conditions may cause this kind of pain, including an impending heart attack. It accompanies other more well-known symptoms. Though it is not common, pain in the neck area can be a sign of something serious, such as tumors, spine cancer, and infections.
Chronic pain is not uncommon. Nearly one-third of adults in Canada deal with this condition. That percentage is only excepted to go up due to our heavy use of cell phones and computers. While this problem used to primarily affect older people, the average age of a person suffering from neck pain has gone down significantly.
Many factors can cause you to suffer pain in your neck. These factors include bad posture, as well as more serious things such as trauma or injury to the soft tissues in your body, pinched nerves and fractures, the latter of which indicates a broken neck.
Seeing A Chiropractor for Neck Pain
When you are experiencing pain in your neck, discomfort and swelling are the two most common complaints. Luckily, these are issues that can be treated by a chiropractor. Chiropractic care can help your joints become less restricted, causing your pain level to decrease. It can also be effective in treating a misaligned spine, another common cause of this type of pain. A chiropractic adjustment will also lower any inflammation causing you pain, which leads to an improved nervous system and joints.
Receiving this type of treatment will not only make your pain easier to manage, but it will also make you more flexible and able to achieve a greater range of motion. As a result, you should be able to increase your activity level without causing yourself pain.
