STRUGGLING WITH NECK PAIN?
Thousands of people suffer from neck pain. According to the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia, statistics show that around 10-15% of the population has neck pain at any given time. However, most people never receive the care they need. Chiropractors can and have been helping people with this condition for more than 100 years.
WHAT CAUSES NECK PAIN?
As lifestyles get more and more sedentary, we are on computers and mobile phone for even longer. As a result, neck pain is becoming more problematic. Poor sitting habits, hours behind a computer, long hours hunched over a school desk or even time spent behind the wheel of a car, are just some of the causes of neck pain. Regardless of what type of neck pain you are experiencing, we trust chiropractic care can help you.
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 Transitions Chiropractic + Massage, we use a variety of diagnostic tools to zero in on the source of the pain rather than just deal with the symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments are pain free and require no drugs or surgery meaning its one of the safest and most naturally effective ways of treating and managing your neck pain.
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 a 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. Neck pain can come with problems such as headaches, sinus issues, arm pain, numbness, trouble sleeping, ringing in the ears and even difficulty concentrating. Some patients even allow their neck pain and spinal issues worsen to the point that surgery may be the only option for relief.
COMMON VS. NORMAL
If you are experiencing neck pain, 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.
