NECK PAIN

Neck Pain

Our neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the total weight of your head, which is, on average, about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck more susceptible to pain and injury.

Neck pain is a common and often debilitating condition that can significantly impact daily life. Chiropractors offer effective, noninvasive treatments to alleviate neck pain. Spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy can relieve joint pain without medication. By addressing the root causes of discomfort, chiropractic care helps restore mobility and improve overall well-being.

  • A 2016 Harvard Health article states that roughly 80% of people will experience neck pain in their lifetime, with 20% to 50% dealing with it annually.

  • Neck pain is the fourth leading cause of disability worldwide.

  • About 30% of the population has an episode of neck pain each year.

  • Poor posture, such as hunching over a computer desk or slouching at a workbench, strains neck muscles.

Symptoms

Symptoms include:

  • Pain that's often worsened by holding the head in one place for long periods, such as when driving or working at a computer

  • Muscle tightness and spasms

  • Decreased mobility of the head, neck, and upper back

  • Headaches

When to see a Doctor

Seek immediate care if severe neck pain results from an injury, such as a motor vehicle accident, diving accident, or fall.

Contact a health care provider if:

  • Persists for several days without relief

  • Radiates down arms or upper back

  • Comes with headache, numbness, weakness or tingling

Dealing with neck pain can be draining and frustrating, especially the longer it persists. Do not hesitate to call Skyline Chiropractic and Sports Medicine for your neck pain.
