The Causes and Treatment of Neck Pain at Mass Sport & Spine
At Mass Sport & Spine, we know that one of the most common reasons why people see a doctor has to do with pain. This pain can show up anywhere in the body. However, the neck is highly susceptible to pain. Anyone who is suffering from neck pain should make sure to count on the services of a trained and reliable chiropractor. At Mass Sport & Spine, we aim to do exactly that.
Causes of Neck Pain Seen at Mass Sport & Spine
At Mass Sport & Spine, there are a few reasons why patients come to see us with neck pain. Some of the most common causes of neck pain that our patients' experience includes:
Whiplash: Typically, whiplash is an injury that people sustain in a car accident. In a motor vehicle collision, changes in momentum can cause the neck to snap back and forth. This leads to a sprain of the upper cervical ligaments, which is whiplash.
Pinched Nerve: Patients can also suffer whiplash due to a pinched nerve. A pinched nerve happens when a nerve gets compressed as it leaves the spine and travels elsewhere throughout the body. This can lead to numbness, tingling, and shooting pains.
Postural Issues: Finally, some people experience neck pain due to issues with their posture. This can lead to knots that form in the neck and back, causing neck stiffness and discomfort.
Neck Pain Treatment from a Trained Chiropractor
Our chiropractic services are capable of providing comprehensive treatment for everyone who is suffering from neck pain. First, we will take a complete history of your neck pain. Then, we will assess the alignment of your spine. In many cases, we can use a series of controlled thrusts to shift your vertebrae back into alignment. Often, this will lead to immediate pain relief. Of course, we want to prevent your neck pain from returning. That is why we also frequently recommend physical therapy and corrective exercises to our patients. We will tailor our treatment plan to meet your needs.
