Neck Pain Q & A

What are the symptoms of neck pain?

Neck pain symptoms vary and may depend on the underlying cause of your discomfort. Common symptoms of neck pain include:

  • Dull muscle ache
  • Sharp, shooting pain
  • Pain that radiates down your shoulder and into your arm
  • Headache
  • Tingling or numbness in your arms or hands

Your neck pain can impair your ability to move your head, which may affect your work or keep you from doing the things you love. The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic can provide treatment to lessen or even eliminate your neck pain and get you back to your usual activities.

Why is my neck in pain?

You may be experiencing neck pain for a number of reasons. For example, muscle pain in your neck can come from poor posture while you’re sitting at your desk, or the pain may develop due to the wear and tear of the cushion in between your vertebral joints. This deterioration causes bone-on-bone friction, which results in joint pain.

Other causes of neck pain include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Whiplash
  • Cervical stenosis
  • Compressed nerve

You may also develop neck pain from other health issues such as rheumatoid arthritis or cancer.

What can I do to prevent neck pain?

Getting regular chiropractic treatments at 5th Avenue Chiropractic may help prevent your neck pain. Your specialist creates a personalized plan based on your symptoms and underlying cause of your neck pain to help you get relief.

Treatment may include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Gentle stretching
  • Physical therapy

Through gentle spinal manipulation, your specialist can realign your cervical spine to reduce muscle strain, improve joint lubrication, and relieve compressed nerves.

Your specialist may also gently stretch your head and neck for better function and mobility, while physical therapy can improve strength and coordination to reduce your risk of another injury.

Also, your specialist may talk to you about ergonomics and how to improve your workspace and home settings. Reducing the stress and strain on your neck can lessen or eliminate your pain.

Neck pain is a common complaint, but chiropractic care from the experts at 5th Avenue Chiropractic can help you get relief from your discomfort and reduce your need for medication. Call the office today or request a consultation online.
