Many people experience neck pain, both chronic and acute. Neck pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, from auto accident injuries to chronic conditions. At Gibson Chiropractic in Sacramento, we provide neck pain treatment and neck pain relief for many of our patients. Our chiropractor, Dr. Gibson, has provided the answers to some frequently asked questions he receives about chiropractic care and neck pain.
What injuries cause neck pain?
There are so many ways to injure your neck, from sports injuries to car accidents. Neck pain often happens because of a pulled muscle, caused by turning or twisting motions that cause strain and injury in the neck. Even poor posture can cause neck pain. Hunching over a computer screen or phone creates neck strain that over time can lead to a cervical spine injury.
What causes chronic neck pain?
We also see many patients who have neck pain because of arthritis or a bulging or herniated disk. The vertebrae or disc press down on nerves in the area, and that results in pain.
What neck pain symptoms should I be aware of?
Nerve irritation in the neck can be caused by arthritis, bulging or herniated discs or another spinal injury. People feel a variety of pain and other sensations, including:
- dull ache
- sharp, stabbing pain
- pain that radiates into the arms
- tingling, numbness or pins and needles sensation
Many of our patients have neck pain that is worse when sitting for long periods and at its worst first thing in the morning.
How can chiropractic care help me?
Chiropractic care provides non-invasive, non-surgical care for your neck pain, and it is designed to the underlying spinal problem that is causing your pain. We will evaluate your spine and do a chiropractic adjustment to align vertebrae and discs to promote healing and ease the pain.
