Neck pain is a common problem. Sitting in front of computers for long hours or bending over smartphone screens can put pressure on the structures that make up the neck. Other work tasks and recreational activities can also lead to neck pain. Chiropractic care offers effective treatment for neck discomfort and stiffness. At Odom Chiropractic in Aiken, SC and Grovetown, GA, we help patients regain their comfort and physical function.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
People often strain neck muscles doing normal activities. They may engage in athletic activities, do home improvement projects, or simply sleep in an awkward position, later experiencing stiffness, pain, or poor range of motion in their necks. You can also have neck pain as a result of long hours at the computer or otherwise holding your head in the same position for a long time. Car accidents can cause neck pain due to the rapid forward and backward movement that occurs during impact.
Neck Pain Can Radiate To Other Areas
Dysfunction in the bones, muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments of the neck can cause pain in other areas such as the shoulder and upper back. Tension in the muscles of the neck can also lead to frequent headaches. Chiropractic techniques can restore normal function to these structures to relieve discomfort in these areas.
Neck Pain Treatment
The structures in the neck are very delicate and can be easily damaged by repetitive movements, overhead work, strains from auto accidents, and other occurrences. Our chiropractor may use a variety of techniques to help relieve discomfort. Manual adjustment is important for re-aligning vertebrae in the upper cervical region of the spine. Gentle traction separates vertebrae to allow normal positioning and improved blood flow to the area. Corrective exercise improves strength in the muscles that support the head. Our chiropractor can also advise you on ways to avoid further neck injuries.
