Neck pain is the result of the joints, muscles, or ligaments being inflamed or irritated. It can be a dull ache or it can prevent you from wanting to make the slightest movement. Neck pain can arise from simple causes, such as a poor sleeping position, or something more serious such as a pulled muscle. Other root causes include:
If you’re experiencing pain caused from one of these issues, you should see a chiropractor right away. Because of the side effects of neck pain limiting mobility in the head, neck, shoulders and back, it can result in worse symptoms such as fatigue, migraines, and stress on other joints in the body. If muscles become weak from lack of movement, they can begin to degenerate and cause additional health problems. Using a chiropractor to treat neck and shoulder pain results in long term results and healing of strained muscles, rather than just masking the pain with medications.
For minor pain or stiffness due to muscle pain, you should relax to give your body time to heal. Applying ice and taking some over the counter pain relievers, will help with the pain. If after a few days there’s no relief it would be best to come in for a check-up.
Understanding the cause of your neck pain is the first step to treating it. The location and type of pain you’re experiencing is often an excellent insight into what’s causing it. But it’s not until you have a full examination and consultation performed that a proper diagnosis can be made.
