It improves mobility and restores the range of motion to the joints. The soft tissues are thus released, and muscles get looser. You will notice an ease in turning and tilting the neck.

Neck Pain Causes and Chiropractic Treatment

The cervical spine containing seven vertebrae is considerably mobile. For example, it allows us to watch behind our back reversing the car. At the same time, it needs to support the head weighing five kilogrammes. This is why the neck is vulnerable and susceptible to injury and pain.

The lack of fitness, strength and flexibility are the conditions to develop neck pain and should be relieved by chiropractic care.

The most common causes of segmental dysfunction include:

  • Accident: sports injuries are expected with contact sports such as rugby or martial arts. They are a common origin of neck injury. However, suppose you practice non-contact sports like gym classes and lifting weights. In that case, you may also experience neck pain due to poor technique.

  • Whiplash: car accidents provoke an extension of the cervical spine, injuring joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots. In reaction, the spine rebounds, creating a hyperflexion and further damaging the tissues. The provoked movement sprains the ligaments, and the muscles are in spasms, causing pain and rigidity. Neck pain treatment by chiropractors is the best way to restore the proper range of movements.

  • Spine Degeneration: like all body tissues, the spine tends to degenerate more significantly after 50. Discs and cartilage become thinner, and joints develop osteoarthritis. It sometimes leads to spurs and bulged discs. Because of this, you may feel numbness, tingling, pain or even weakness in the back, shoulders and arms. This is because of the stenosis or narrowing of the holes the nerves go through.

  • Poor Posture: posture disorders are the primary reason for neck pain. The head weight strains the spine leaning forward and slouching. Sedentary work at the desk facing monitors results in segmental dysfunctions. Another cause is watching videos, looking down at your phone for hours. Therefore, the spine’s mobility and flexibility are restricted, increasing stiffness and neck pain. This is the overwhelming cause of tensional or cervicogenic headaches, the most common type at 90%.

How to Ease Neck Pain

In addition to its neck pain treatment, your chiropractor at Orewa Chiropractic will prescribe a specialised exercise program with different types of rehabilitation treatment. It includes strengthening, stretching and functional exercises, depending on your personal needs. He will also recommend posture correction and lifestyle and behaviour changes. An excellent way to start is to walk for twenty minutes during your lunch break and go tramping or cycling during the weekend.
