Neck Pain Diagnosis and Treatment at O’Fallon Crossing Chiropractic
At O’Fallon Crossing Chiropractic, we provide comprehensive care and support to patients suffering from a wide range of pain types. When you visit your O'Fallon chiropractor, you’ll learn just how thorough and effective chiropractic care can be. One of the most common ways we help patients is diagnosing and treating neck pain. If you have acute or chronic neck pain, call our offices for an appointment.
Understanding the Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain is not uncommon. Some people wake up with a stiff neck from sleeping in a bad position. However, for others, any movement of the neck causes pain. This is common after an injury, such as an auto accident, sports injury, or a slip and fall. Some of the typical causes of neck pain include:
- Sudden force and movement to the head or neck in any direction, which can cause whiplash. When this occurs, the neck whips back and forth, causing strain and tearing of the supporting tissues in the neck and head.
- Degenerative disorders can cause neck pain including spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and osteoarthritis.
- Poor posture can also cause spinal column misalignment, which in turn causes pain and neck pain. Many times patients also will have pain in their upper back and arms.
When you come in to see your chiropractor, we’ll take a closer look at why the pain is occurring. It’s important to look for the underlying cause of your symptoms and to treat those so that you can overcome this pain.
Getting Neck Pain Relief
After a thorough examination, we’ll make recommendations for treatment so you can find neck pain relief. This may include the use of chiropractic care. During this type of care, we provide gentle pressure on the cervical vertebrae with the goal of properly positioning and aligning the spinal column. By doing this, we reduce the pressure and pinching of the nerves in the area. This can also help to reduce the inflammation that is often present in those who suffer from chronic neck pain. It’s important to know that it is not possible to cure neck pain without addressing the underlying cause of it, as we do here.
Even if you’ve suffered from neck pain for a long time, chiropractic care can help. Studies indicate that there is high-quality evidence showing that those with chronic neck pain who receive chiropractic spinal manipulation, as we’ve described here, can see significant improvement. You don’t have to suffer in pain for a long time. Let our chiropractor help you to finally get the pain relief you need. Come in to see your O'Fallon chiropractor.
