Understanding neck pain and how routine chiropractic care could help.
What is Neck Pain?
Your neck is made up of seven vertebrae that are supported by many muscles and ligaments and act as a bridge between your head and torso, allowing the motion of your head. When the joints, muscles, and ligaments in the neck become irritated or inflamed, one may often feel pain in the neck.
Neck pain can range from being minor and easily ignored, to excruciating and impairing. If combined with other symptoms it can indicate the need for urgent medical attention.
Common symptoms of neck pain include:
Stiff neck with limited range of motion
Concentrated sharp or stabbing pain
General soreness or tenderness
Radiating pain, that can eventually lead from the neck to shoulders, arms, fingers, and head
Neck pain is experienced by nearly everyone and should not be tolerated. Approximately 17 percent of the adult population suffers from neck pain and discomfort at any given time. This can be caused by abnormal sleeping positions, poor posture, falling, or injuries from sports or whiplash. In rare cases, it can be caused by growth abnormalities, infections, tumors, and even cancer. In any event, neck pain can be serious and should be attended to immediately.
