How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Address Neck Pain and Loss of Range of Motion
Neck pain can stem from various causes but finding relief from the pain is usually a priority. We at McGunnigle Chiropractic in Haddonfield, NJ, understand that neck pain can negatively impact your entire life.
When your neck hurts, you may have lack of range of motion. Daily life activities are going to be difficult. Going to work to do your job can be challenging. Even regular activities like driving or getting dressed can be painful.
What May Cause Neck Pain?
One of the first things that our chiropractor will try to determine is what’s causing your neck pain. This gives them a starting point to determine how to treat the pain for you. Our chiropractor will work with you to find an optimal solution to treat your neck pain.
Neck pain often occurs because of soft tissue damage. For example, a person who’s been in a car crash may have whiplash. That can cause severe neck and shoulder pain. In some cases, it also leads to upper back pain. A slipped disc or degenerative disc disorder can also lead to neck pain.
How Can Chiropractic Care Provide Neck Pain Relief?
Regardless of the cause of neck pain, chiropractic care can help to provide relief by ensuring the neck is in its proper alignment. Activities that you do daily can cause the tendons, ligaments, and muscles in the neck to tense up. This can pull the bones out of alignment, which can cause the supporting structures to become compressed.
Chiropractic adjustments get everything back into their places. This can reduce the amount of friction the supporting structures have to deal with. Friction can lead to inflammation, which increases pain. All of this can put pressure on the nerves, so they become painful.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and slowly move the spine back into place. They are cumulative, so you’ll feel more pain relief with each visit to the office. Our chiropractor might also use other techniques and suggest lifestyle changes so that you can experience optimal pain relief as quickly as possible.
