Neck pain is a common problem with many possible causes. The key to getting the right treatment is to establish which type of neck pain you may be suffering from. Neck pain can range from minor and easily ignored, to excruciating and debilitating. Having a literal pain in the neck is at best mildly annoying to deal with. Initially a very common secondary symptom is headache, and often such symptoms are interpreted and treated as migraines without success. When the head is in balance, a line drawn through the nasal spine and the superior border of the external auditory meatus will be perpendicular to the ground.
The leading causes of neck pain include:
- Abnormalities in Bones or Joints.
- Problems with the Spine
- Pinched Nerves
- Muscle Strains
- Poor posture
Sitting or standing with a relaxed posture, keep your shoulders down and tilt your head as far forward as you can, then align your right eye with the outside of your left knee. The majority of people with neck pain are suffering from what is known as ‘simple’ or ‘mechanical’ neck pain. Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and discomfort caused by neck pain. There are many treatment plans and options available to you.Pain is frequently aggravated by arm position and extension or lateral rotation of the head. The cervical spine provides structural stability and support for the cranium, and a flexible and protective column for movement and balance adaptation, along with housing of the spinal cord and vertebral arteries.
