The neck is one of the most important large muscles in the entire body. However, even though the neck plays a massive role in helping people support themselves and find balance, the neck muscles can be quite sensitive. Any wrong move can lead to disastrous consequences, such as acute or chronic neck pain. If you are suffering from acute or chronic neck pain, there is hope. At Hillcrest Chiropractic in Clarksville, Dr. Price and our team provide quality chiropractic care for a variety of health issues, including neck pain.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain is incredibly common, with 30 percent of U.S. adults experiencing it every year. Some of the common causes of neck pain include:
- Pulled muscles
- Muscle strains
- Overuse injuries
- Poor posture
- Pinched nerves
- Prior injuries
- Radiating pain from shoulder or back
- Tendinitis of the neck muscles
Even something as simple as sleeping in the wrong position can cause you to have excruciating neck pain.
Our Chiropractor in Clarksville Can Help
Although neck pain can occasionally go away on its own, if it has been lingering or continues to return, it may be a sign of something more serious, such as an underlying injury. Our chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam along with imaging tests to determine if there is an underlying injury, or if your neck pain has another cause. Afterward, we will create a treatment plan designed to provide pain relief and support the healing process.
Types of Chiropractic Care
If your neck pain is the result of a previous injury, such as whiplash, our chiropractor will recommend a treatment plan designed to promote recovery from those injuries. Our treatments can also aid in reducing stress since stress is a huge cause of tension in the upper back and often contributes to neck pain. Finally, we may also recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as adjusting your posture and performing stretching exercises at home to prevent your neck pain from reoccurring. Effective treatments include:
- Muscle massages to reduce inflammation and pain around the neck
- Manual adjustments to realign the spine and help neck pain caused by scoliosis
- Acupuncture to reduce stress and boost natural pain-killing endorphins
- Spinal decompression to alleviate neck pain caused by pinched nerves and herniated discs
