Neck pain is extremely common, and comes in many forms.
While some people experience neck pain as a gradual onset, stiff and tight sensation that worsens throughout their day, others suffer from a sharp pain that comes on suddenly, often upon waking or after a jerky head movement. Others still may experience a concurrent numbness or tingling sensation into their arms, or a headache which coincides with the onset of their neck pain.
Neck pain can be acute in onset, or chronic, in which people describe having suffered from pain for years, or even for the better part of their lives. When pain or an injury to the neck, such as whiplash, decreases an individual’s ability to properly turn the head in all directions, it can be a debilitating experience. Losing the freedom of checking one’s blindspot, gazing up while reaching for overhead objects, or even just comfortably watching one’s step on uneven ground can make an average day feel like a burden.
Chiropractors have a variety of techniques to help individuals with neck pain, ranging from soft tissue therapies, to adjustments and neck strengthening exercises and rehabilitation. Chiropractors are well-equipped to decrease debilitating neck pain and increase patients’ range of motion and ability to live their lives.
