Neck Pain Care
Studies show that at least 80% of the world’s population experience neck pain at some point in life. Neck pain nags and causes physical discomfort. It can trigger other complications such as headache, migraine, numbness, and weakness in the limbs.
Also, if you are suffering from neck pain, you may experience difficulties while sleeping or turning your head. People who suffer neck pain recover after a few days or weeks. However, if the pain is chronic, it may be an indication of an underlying health condition that needs attention.
Dr Angelo Marinakis of Active Life Chiropractic in Round Rock has been caring for people with neck pain for over 20 years.
Causes Of Neck Pain
Injuries and accidents are the main causes of neck pain. Car and accidents may cause whiplash, a common neck injury that occurs when the neck is forcefully moved backward and forward. Also, accidents can cause herniated discs. When spinal discs slip out of position, nerves compress and cause pain.
Can your lifestyle affect your neck? Of course. Having extra weight exerts a lot of pressure on your spine and disrupts its balance.
How long do you gaze at your computer or smartphone? Staying in the same posture for long puts you at the risk of suffering from neck pain.
Health conditions, such as arthritis, can affect the spine. Arthritis causes inflammation of the neck, which weakens the joints that enable the neck's swift movements. Individuals who suffer from migraines may also encounter neck pain.
Symptoms of Neck Pain
Apart from the common neck pain itself, other symptoms associated with the pain may include:
- Stiffness in the neck muscles
- Headache at the back of the scalp
- Weakness that extends to the arms
- Numbness in the arms (paresthesia)
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Chiropractic care is the science and art of detecting and correcting spinal misalignments (vertebral subluxations). By analyzing your posture, range of motion, muscle tone and the specific alignment of your spine, Dr Marinakis can determine where your spine requires adjustment. Adjustments are safe, gentle, specific and tailored to meet your specific needs.
