A Deeper Understanding of Neck Pain
Neck pain is so common and occurs in approximately one in three people at least once every year. Women, more than men, are likely to experience neck pain. The chances of one developing neck pain increase with age.
The neck comprises a complex system of muscles, bones, and ligaments that support your head. It is common for these structures to become strained or tight, and when they do, you experience pain in your neck area. Also, you may experience neck pain when the supporting tissues of your neck are injured. The injury can be a result of any of the following;
- Trauma like whiplash when you are involved in a road accident
- Repetitive strain from certain activities like sitting for long hours behind a desk without taking breaks, playing soccer/tennis
- Problems with your backbone, like spondylolisthesis, where a part of your vertebra slides into a vertebra beneath it
- Physical overexertion such as lifting heavy weights over the shoulder height while you are twisting outwards
Other common causes of the pain include; mental stress, growths, aging, conditions affecting spinal balance, medical conditions such as cancer, meningitis, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
How Does A Chiropractor Diagnose Neck Pain?
At Peak Spine + Wellness clinic, we will evaluate your backbone since other parts of your neck, such as the low back (lumbar), mid-back (thoracic), and cervical, may also be affected. Our chiropractic care involves treating the ‘whole person’ and educating you on stress management, nutrition, and lifestyle goals besides treating the pain. There are various approaches that we use in treating this condition. Some of them include;
- Gonstead Adjustment
- Diversified Technique
- Logan Technique
- Soft Tissue Therapy
Before deciding on the appropriate approach, we first conduct a thorough examination to get the root cause of your pain. We determine the areas of restricted movement and see how you can walk, your overall spinal alignment, and posture. We also go through your medical history before ordering an imaging test (MRI or X-ray) to diagnose the cause of the pain.
The information we get will enable us to choose your appropriate treatment plan. We will also rule out a neck pain condition that needs surgery if we believe surgery would better treat the pain. We may also recommend therapeutic exercise to help improve your overall range of neck movement and stop neck pain from progressing.
