Suffering with Neck Pain?

neck pain

Thousands of people suffer with neck pain. Most patients never receive the care they need even though chiropractors have been helping people with this condition for more than 100 years. This article from our Chiropractic team is here to help you understand the benefits of care.


Chiropractic Care is Very Effective for Neck Pain

It is close to impossible to help a patient with neck pain if you are unsure of the location of the problem. At Foundation Health Chiropractic, we use of a variety of diagnostic tools to zero in on the source of the pain rather than just deal with the symptoms.

The spine is one of the most complex areas of your body, with almost every systemic nerve running through it. Muscles connected to a misaligned region of the spine can spasm and tighten. This tightening is believed to be a defense mechanism of the body to protect the spine and spinal cord. Bad posture in general and specific repetitive motions done with bad posture are the most common cause of misalignments.

Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough their pain will just go away. In a lot of cases it probably will go away for at least a little bit, but the misalignment at the root of the problem will still be there. Over time that area can become aggravated again, and the pain may return. Without correction, over time the problem can become much more serious. Some patients even allow their spinal issues to worsen to the point that surgery may be the only option for relief.


Common vs. Normal

If you are experiencing neck pain, you need to avoid falling into the common vs. normal trap. Simply put, because so many people complain of neck pain on a regular basis, for many people it's now seen as normal and to be expected in everyday life. This mentality is why so many people present with problems that can no longer be corrected by non-invasive methods and can lead to surgery and lengthy recovery times. Although neck pain is very common, it is certainly not normal.

You don’t have to become a statistic of neck pain. Take control of the problem before it’s too late by contacting us and setting up a consultation today. By dealing with your problem today, before it becomes unmanageable, your recovery time should be quick and with minimal interference.
