When it comes to neck pain we often blame it on that one quick head turn to check our blind spot or sleeping incorrectly on the pillow one night, but the truth is is that rarely it is one event that causes neck pain. It's an accumulation of many - forgive the analogy - pieces of straw that broke the camel's back. It's the the endless hours we spend looking down at our phone,missing stretch breaks while working long hours at the computer to nights and nights of sleeping on a poor pillow that contribute to our neck problem. Our necks adapt, change their posture and position, turn on muscles, tighten muscles and relaxes muscles as it protects us from pain. This works great, well until it doesn't.
Some of the causes of neck pain include:
Trauma, such as falls, car accidents and whiplash
Repetitive stress or sustained postures
Abnormalities in the bone structure
Degeneration and arthritis
Neck pain is frustrating and inconvenient. You don't realize how much your neck moves until it is in pain! Shoulder checking. Ouch! Looking at phone. Ooooo. Brushing your teeth. Ahh. Combing your hair. Not happening. Sleeping. Who needs sleep? Looking to tie shoes. Eeek. Yes, being able to move your neck is pretty important. And when your body doesn't bounce back we are here to help! In fact, we can often help prevent too so you don't even have to suffer in the first place. Think of it like the dentist - you can either do prevention work to prevent cavities or you can fix the cavities when they show up which will cost more, may not be at the ideal time and may reveal more issues. Whatever you choose, we are here to help!
Did you reach for the medications? Did you grab the hot pack? Did you put on a cold pack? Did you stretch it? These interventions may minimize the pain or even get rid of it for a bit, but did it solve it? That's where chiropractic care with Dr. Jamshed comes in! Let's get to the root of the problem. If the problem is a misalignment of the bones then no pill or drug is going to move the bones back into proper alignment thus removing the pressure on the nerve and the source of the pain. The chiropractic adjustment does just that!
Chiropractic care and massage therapy are often used in conjunction with one another as they compliment each other nicely and can deal with different aspects of the condition. Vicki and Dr. Jamshed with your permission can discuss your case and ensure they are working together to maximize the benefits of care.
