Neck Pain

Mid Atlantic Chiropractic Center

Why does my neck hurt?

Neck pain can be caused by several factors, including traumatic events like slip-and-fall accidents and car accidents, herniated discs, arthritis and other spine-related diseases, and even lifestyle factors like sleeping on an unsupportive mattress or pillow or spending long hours hunched over a cell phone or laptop. Unlike the rest of the spine, the cervical spine in the neck doesn't have the same supportive musculature, and it's subjected to far greater stress and strain, making it very prone to injury. Neck pain is often accompanied by chronic headaches, stiffness and reduced range of motion, and having painful symptoms evaluated as early as possible is the best way to ensure a fast recovery.

What is cervical radiculopathy?

Cervical radiculopathy is a condition that occurs when a nerve in the neck becomes compressed, usually from a herniated disc but sometimes as a result of other issues like trauma or arthritis. When the nerve becomes compressed, it can cause pain and numbness or tingling sensations in the neck and radiating into the shoulders and arms. Without proper medical attention, cervical radiculopathy can eventually cause muscle weakness and loss of coordination and grip strength in the hands and fingers.

How do chiropractors treat neck pain?

Neck pain treatment begins with an in-depth assessment of the cervical spine and the spine in the upper back, as well as the soft tissues and connective tissues that support them, using hands-on techniques to isolate areas of tenderness and other symptoms. Then, a spinal adjustment may be performed to ensure the spine is properly aligned and to reduce nerve impingements and irritation that can cause painful symptoms. Therapeutic massage can be very helpful in relieving trigger points or muscle “knots” that can cause pain and restrict range of motion as well as promote enhanced circulation for better natural healing. Gentle stretching exercises will be prescribed to help relieve inflammation and improve overall flexibility and range of motion for additional symptom improvement. Plus, chiropractors can provide lifestyle guidance that can help patients avoid neck pain in the future.
