Look No Further to Find a Chiropractor for Your Neck Pain
There are two primary causes for neck pain: poor posture and whiplash injuries. A whiplash injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact car accident “whips” the cervical spine backwards and forwards. This abrupt, unnatural movement triggers not only a spinal misalignment, but also strains the muscles and soft tissues in the neck.
Whiplash injuries are very common. They can occur at speeds as slow as 5mph and most fender bender victims sustain a whiplash injury. Unfortunately, since it can be several weeks or even a month before symptoms are evident, many victims settle prematurely with their insurance companies and lose out on their rightful compensation. If you have recently been in a car accident injury, we recommend visiting our chiropractor for a full diagnostic exam. A diagnostic exam will help determine the extent of your injuries and ensure you receive all the care to which you are entitled.
Poor posture is also a leading trigger for neck pain. For example, if you spend long hours hunched over your computer at work, this poor posture can strain the ligaments in the neck, which causes pain to develop slowly over time. One day you may feel only a slight numbness in your neck, and the following day, the pain may be so intense that it is difficult to turn your head from side to side, look up and down, or even sleep comfortably at night.
If you are suffering from neck pain, traditional medical care focuses solely on managing your pain symptoms. This means that a doctor may prescribe medication for your neck pain or insist on placing your neck in a cervical collar. Unfortunately, both approaches are misguided and not fully effective as treatment options. For example, medication, while it provides temporary relief, works by numbing pain sensations. Once this wears off, your pain will return. A cervical collar can also do more harm than good. Immobilizing the neck for extended periods will ultimately slow the body’s natural healing process, rather than supporting it.
Advanced chiropractic care is different. Chiropractic adjustments bring proper alignment back to the cervical spine, relieving pressure on nearby nerves for natural, drug-free pain relief. With chiropractic care, there is no need to depend on drugs for pain relief. Additionally, chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to bring mobility back to the cervical spine. Corrective exercises, for example, promote a natural range of movement without increasing the risk for additional injury.
If you have sustained a neck injury, then chiropractic care can make a significant difference for your overall health. Contact us today to find a chiropractor in Orinda and start healing right away!
