Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can be caused by several factors that lead to aches and stiffness. Some of these causes include:
- Acute Injuries — An acute injury can cause damage to various parts of the neck at the same time. For instance, whiplash occurs when your head is moved back and forth suddenly, which causes affects the muscles, tendons, discs, nerves, and cervical joints.
- Degenerative Conditions — Bulging discs or herniated discs can cause intense neck pain and other symptoms. Along with that, spinal stenosis and arthritis in your joints can also lead to discomfort in your neck.
- Poor Posture — Stooping or slumping places extra stress on the neck tissues and can cause chronic neck pain.
Chiropractic Adjustment and Physiotherapy for Neck Pain
At our practice, we provide chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy to relieve neck pain. When you visit us, our chiropractor, Dr. Athans, will take X-rays and perform an evaluation to determine the cause of your discomfort. Then, we will utilize targeted chiropractic adjustments to adjust any structures that are not aligned and may have occurred from whiplash or poor posture.
Physiotherapy can also complement chiropractic adjustments and help reduce your neck pain. We use flexion distraction therapy to treat disc any problems. Along with that, we may utilize ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, and a personalized exercise plan to ease the pain in your neck muscles and connective tissues.
