Neck Pain Q&A

Desiring Health Specific Chiropractic

What is the Cause of Neck Pain?

Auto accidents often cause neck pain because they frequently result in whiplash. Seniors may develop neck pain due to natural cervical spine degeneration. People who are overweight may be more likely to develop neck pain. The extra weight exerts a constant pressure on the lumbar spine, which in turn has an impact on the cervical spine. Neck pain may be a symptom of a congenital disease or condition. Poor posture is also a leading cause of neck pain.

How Does Poor Posture Impact Neck Pain?

People who have poor posture often develop neck pain over the years, as the poor posture can pull the vertebrae in the neck out of their proper state of alignment.

How is Neck Pain Treated by the Chiropractor?

Neck pain is tied directly to the cervical spine, so it is best treated with specific adjustments performed by a cervical spine specialist. Usually, gentle manipulations to the C1 and C2 vertebrae will correct the neck pain. Other treatments may also be helpful, including physiotherapy like ice packs and heat application. A chiropractor with expertise in upper cervical care will be able to relieve neck pain in a completely natural way, with no medication needed and no invasive surgery required.

Do Sleeping Positions Impact Neck Pain?

Yes, sleeping positions may have a lot to do with neck pain. This can be corrected with the use of special pillows like the Therapeutica back and side sleeping pillow.

Can Better Ergonomics Help?

Yes, improved ergonomics can help with neck pain. This can include the use of support pillows, special keyboards, and other ergonomic devices recommended by the chiropractor.

What is Text Neck?

Text neck describes the neck pain and strain that happens when a person looks down at their cellular phone, tablet, or other handheld devices for long periods of time on a frequent basis. Young people may be especially prone to this type of damage, but it can be corrected with a mixture of lifestyle changes (better posture, less device use) and chiropractic adjustments.
