What is Neck Pain?
Neck pain is a common complaint presenting as sharp or dull pain starting in the neck that may radiate down the arms or back. It may involve various aspects of the back and neck, including tissues, muscles, ligaments, and cervical spine bones.
Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can result from several disorders, including auto injury or trauma, and may be acute (short term) or chronic (long term). All of this is because the neck is a vulnerable and well-used area of the body. Chronic neck pain may result from spinal disc degeneration or arthritis, which may require integrating treatments to maximize pain relief and improve quality of life.
Neck pain presents more commonly as people age and, coupled with poor posture or disease, can be problematic. Luckily, chiropractic treatment is immensely beneficial under these circumstances.
Treating Neck Pain
At Southern Palms Chiropractic and Wellness, we have several approaches to providing neck pain relief, including:
Gentle adjustments is a chiropractic method that involves the delicate movement and adjustment of the musculoskeletal system to improve your overall health or provide neck pain relief. It is indicated for babies, young children, and individuals who don't like the more robust method of chiropractic and the accompanying noises of the bones moving into place.
When your neck pain results from muscle spasms or inflamed muscles due to repetitive motion or even stress, massage therapy helps to loosen these muscles and mentally relax you to relieve your stress. It works well with other methods of chiropractic care for a holistic and integrative approach to your overall health.
A transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machine is regularly used in chiropractic care for neck pain relief and muscle relaxation. It is a form of electrical muscle stimulation therapy involving the application of pads to your skin to deliver electrical impulses to the affected area. The electrical impulses can be delivered at different strengths and your chiropractor will ask you how you feel so that they can adjust it to a level you are comfortable with. It does not hurt; there should only be a warm, tingling feeling as the machine does its work.
