Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment in Orangeburg
If you have neck pain, it may only bother you at certain times, like when you first wake up or after a long day at the office. Perhaps your neck is stiff, achy, and sore all the time, or gets worse when you're tired or stressed. No matter what your neck pain experience is like, you deserve relief! At Marsch Chiropractic Center, we're here to help you feel better, learn about the source of your pain, and avoid the frustration of long-term dysfunction.
Leading Causes and Risk Factors of Neck Pain
A leading cause of acute neck pain is whiplash. The cracking of a whip is similar to the bending and extending in a person's neck if they are involved in any traumatic accident that causes their moving body to suddenly change direction or speed (car accidents and falls are leading causes). This forceful bending and extending strains muscles, ligaments, joints, nerves, and other tissues in the neck. In addition to neck and shoulder pain, whiplash can also cause stiffness, headaches, jaw discomfort, arm numbness, and ringing in the ears.
Other causes of neck pain include degenerative disc disease, disc bulge, disc herniation, scoliosis, spondylosis (osteoarthritis of the neck), facet joint locks, and stenosis. Sometimes, there may be no clear cause. Neck pain can be brought on by a variety of risk factors, including advancing age, posture, stress, smoking, other underlying physical and mental health conditions, and repetitive movement and heavy lifting, especially overhead.
