Neck Pain – The Cause and the Options

Neck-Pain-–-The-Cause-and-the-Options-1.jpg

About 50% of adults will experience intermittent or chronic neck pain. It’s a very common problem, but it shouldn’t be seen as normal. None of us were designed to live with neck pain.

This problem often results from muscle strains, spinal issues, disc issues, nerve compression, injuries, diseases, and especially poor posture. In today’s world, most of us spend a great deal of time sitting at a computer or staring at a cell phone. All that time in unnatural compromised positions can lead to neck pain and possible degeneration.

What Most People Do

Most people with neck pain rely on pain pills or a visit to their medical doctor. Those are the only treatment options that most of us were given growing up, and they are the options we fall back on as adults.

At times medication or a medical visit can be the correct option, but here are some things to consider…

  1. Do you have neck pain because of a lack of medication in your body?
  2. Is the pain medication correcting the cause or covering it up?
  3. General medical doctors are not specifically trained to deal with spine issues. Are they the best first option for treatment advice?

The Best Path for Most People

Chiropractic doctors have around 4,500 hours of intense training focused on the spine and surrounding tissues. They are trained to look for and gently correct the cause of problems.

Chiropractic care is also one of the safest non-invasive options to deal with neck pain. In most cases gentle adjustments to the spine produce outstanding results.

There are times when chiropractic care may not be the right option. The good news is that our qualified team will be able to point you in the correct direction if we can’t help.
