Symptoms of an Injured Neck
It may seem obvious that your neck is injured when you are experiencing neck pain! But there may be more subtle signs that your neck is in distress.
- Minimal range of head motion. It may be the case that you can turn your head one way but not the other
- Stiffness or pain while moving your head up or down
- Tight neck muscles
- Neck spasms
- Frequent headaches
- Neck pain after being in the same position for an extended period of time
- Neck Injury such as whiplash
What are the Causes of Neck Pain?
There are many underlying conditions that can trigger neck pain. If you suspect your neck pain is the result of an injury, please advise our Easley Chiropractic Office at time of appointment as to what type of injury you incurred.
Joint Issues: As we age, the cartilage between our joints begins to wear down, leaving less protection between the bones (also known as arthritis). Since the upper vertebrae of the spine run up the back of your neck, arthritis in these vertebrae may cause neck stiffness or pain.
Strained Muscle: The neck is tasked with supporting the entire head. When one muscle in your neck is injured, the surrounding structures need to pick up the slack. This can lead to overuse, injury and pain in the surrounding neck area.
Compressed Nerves: Herniated or bulging discs in the upper vertebrae may impede nerves in the back. This can lead to anything from headaches, to neck pain, or tingling in the hands or feet.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Unfortunately, today’s modern world is not designed to support spinal health. Repetitive movements can force the spine into unnatural positions. Sitting for long periods of time and working on a computer are modern conveniences that are detrimental to our spine. These unnatural positions put extra stress on the surrounding spinal structures including our disks, ligaments, muscles and tendons. The extra stress can lead to injury or chronic pain. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive option to help your spine maintain or re-achieve its natural shape and eliminate your neck pain with proper treatment.
What to Know Before Your First Appointment
Spinal manipulation is a helpful technique used here at Young Chiropractic by our Easley chiropractor to align the body. However, some patients are hesitant to have their neck “cracked”, especially during their first appointment. While many patients find spinal manipulation helpful, we will work with you to discuss any concerns you may have about your treatment. Our Easley Chiropractic Office location now offers cutting edge new technology to provide a variety of adjusting tools for those that are nervous about manual neck adjustments. Speak with our Chiropractor Dr. Jay Young during your consultation and he will be sure to put you at ease.
