Over a third of adults find themselves dealing with neck pain each year.
Neck pain can range from mild to chronic. Yet, regardless of severity, it can quickly affect your regular daily routine.
The neck is a common pain site because of the high amount of strain it sustains from daily postures, upper body use, and general overuse with regular head movement.
Common causes of neck pain
Typically, there is more than one issue that leads to the culmination of pain in the neck. These include:
- Spine alignment. Most often, spine misalignment is the true underlying cause of neck pain, regardless of other extenuating circumstances. Some misalignments are more obvious than others, yet they all affect basic nerve energy that allows the neck to function uninhibited and pain free. It is most often at the bottom of every cause listed below.
- Poor biomechanics. If you are continually using your neck and upper body with poor form, it can lead to loss of normal function and pain in the neck secondary to impaired neural health and strain.
- Poor posture. This can affect both spine alignment and neck mechanics. As a society, we spend a lot of time slouched over computers, phones, sleeping in awkward positions, and slumped on the couch watching TV. These are all understandably tough on the neck.
- Injury or trauma. This can result from a direct blow to the head, car accident, or a fall that strains and injures surrounding neck tissues.
Unfortunately, most Virginia Beach neck pain sufferers either ignore their symptoms or get the wrong type of treatment.
Don’t get me wrong, physical therapy and massage do wonders for pulled or strained muscles in the neck, but only a chiropractor specializing in corrective chiropractic care can put an end to pain and its related symptoms or diseases.
Virginia Beach chiropractor call it “forward-head” posture, where the head shifts forward – a direct result of our cell phones, laptops, driving habits, and pillows.
As a result, the delicate nerves in the neck get pulled, and exerted pressure on, leading to not just neck pain and discomfort, but a wide range of other health issues discussed above.
