Neck Pain Treatment with our Harrisburg Chiropractor
Do you have to turn your whole body just to look at someone or something? If so, you're probably acutely aware of just how debilitating neck pain and stiffness can be. Whether you damaged your neck in an accident or you're suffering from chronic or age-related cervical spinal issues, you can get over that nagging pain and get your life back without turning to either drugs or surgery. Here at Skocik Chiropractic, our trusted Harrisburg chiropractor is happy to provide you with natural neck pain relief.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
The reasons for neck pain aren't always obvious. Of course, you probably know where that neck pain is coming from if you've just had an auto accident or another injury that threw your head around. This violent head motion can create a painful syndrome known as whiplash, featuring strained muscles, dislocated cervical joints, and herniated cervical discs. But even in an accident, shock and adrenalin can delay the onset of neck symptoms (which is why you should always get your neck checked out regardless of pain).
The neck's structures and alignment may also undergo subtle changes that produce pain. Age-related bulging discs, arthritis in the cervical spinal joints, bone spurs, and an alignment shift called spondylolisthesis can all cause or worsen a case of chronic neck pain. A misalignment at the top of the spine may alter the angle of your head, straining the supporting neck muscles. You could even be sabotaging your neck through postural habits such as always staring down at your cell phone, which can cause a form of soft tissue strain called "text neck."
