If you suffer from neck pain every day, you understand just how debilitating it can be. Neck pain can come from several different sources, such as acute injuries and chronic conditions. If you live in Westminster, Broomfield, or the surrounding area, the team at Lifetime Health and Wellness can help. Using regular and targeted chiropractic care it is possible to mitigate or eliminate your neck pain.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain is usually the result of an acute injury or a chronic illness or health condition. An acute injury can be a sprain, strain, or fracture, or could be a herniated disc in the neck area. Acute injuries can also be the result of an accident. Whiplash is a common cause of neck pain resulting from an auto accident injury or another significant impact to the head and neck.
Chronic conditions can cause neck pain too. Neck pain can be caused by osteoporosis or arthritis, which impacts the joints and bones that make up the neck. Furthermore, issues with the immune system can relate to neck pain. As the immune system targets a possible illness in the body, the glands and lymph nodes in the neck can become overactive, causing a severe amount of pain. Neck pain can be caused by stress and tension, or even from poor posture.
The Symptoms of Neck Pain
Neck pain can vary in severity, ranging from a dull and stiff ache to debilitating, sharp, and shooting pain. It is quite common to have numbness and tingling that accompanies neck pain. The numbness can be felt in the neck and shoulders or can radiate downward through the arms and extend to the hands. If you have numbness with your neck pain, schedule a consultation with one of our chiropractors. You may be suffering from a pinched nerve or a herniated disc.
A Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors provide professional care using a safe and non-invasive medical approach. Chiropractic care ensures that the muscular and skeletal systems are in alignment with one another. Using chiropractic adjustment techniques, a chiropractor can help reduce tension within the muscles and pressure around the joints. For neck pain, you may need just one chiropractic adjustment, or ongoing regular treatments to help mitigate and eliminate your pain. Be sure to talk with our chiropractors about your individualized treatment plan to provide pain relief and encourage recovery.
