Neck Pain FAQ
What causes neck pain?
Many people suffer from neck pain after a sports injury or auto accident. Whiplash is an especially common cause of neck pain. Your head may be thrown forward and jerked back during a car accident. This violent back-and-forth motion can result in severe or long-lasting pain.
Physical injuries or emotional factors can also cause neck pain. Common causes of neck pain include:
- Stress or anxiety
- Poor posture
- Sleeping position
- Repetitive motions
Structural problems can also be to blame. If the bones or tissues along your spine aren’t correctly aligned, your neck might feel stiff or sore. You may also have trouble turning your head or stretching your neck muscles. Neck pain can also trigger stubborn headaches.
How can chiropractic medicine help my neck pain?
If you’re suffering from neck pain, you may be tempted to take a few pain relievers and get on with your day. But using pain medications only masks your symptoms. You may stop responding to these drugs or experience rebound pain as the medication wears off. Over time, your body builds up a tolerance to pain medications.
Chiropractic medicine is different. A qualified chiropractor can help to resolve structural problems in your neck and back. With chiropractic care, you can experience long-lasting, drug-free pain relief. Chiropractic care is also ideal for promoting healing after a sports injury, surgery, or auto accident.
