What are the signs of neck pain?
Neck pain can be tricky. Sometimes it can get better with movement, but other
times it worsens and can even restrict movement altogether. Here are a few
common types of pain that are associated with the neck:
Pain that gets worse when you hold your head in one place for too long, such
as when you’re driving or working at a computer
- Pain that feels like muscle tightness
- Pain that feels like sharp, severe spasms
- Pain that decreases your ability to move your head
- Pain in your head that radiates from your neck
What causes neck pain?
There are many possible causes of neck pain. Some of the most common ones
This usually is a result of poor posture or overuse from doing things
such as spending too many hours hunched over a computer. It can also be
caused by simply sleeping with your neck in an uncomfortable or awkward
Most commonly this is whiplash which is a neck injury due to sudden
jerking of the head. Whiplash is most often caused by motor vehicle
accidents, contact sports, and falls.
The joints in your neck can wear down with age, causing the cartilage
between your bones to deteriorate. Your body will then create bone
spurs, which cause pain.
This happens when herniated discs, also called ruptured or slipped
discs, press on the nerves where they branch away from your spinal cord.
What are some treatments for neck pain?
Neck pain can be treated with a variety of therapies, and at Synergy Medical
LLC, Drs. Cooper can discover what will work best for your particular neck
pain. Your treatment might include adjusting—slight chiropractic
corrections to the neck—or it might include a method called traction,
which uses weights and pulleys to gently stretch out the neck. These methods
can be very effective, along with other exercises and stretches to strengthen
and correct the issue.
