Symptoms of Neck Pain

Neck problems can exhibit a general soreness in the neck and upper body, a sharp pain on movement, stiffness of the neck or pain radiating into the shoulders or arms. Tingling, numbness or weakness in the arms and hands may accompany the neck pain. Some people experience frequent headaches with their neck pain. Discomfort can be intermittent or chronic.

Causes of Neck Pain

Injury to the neck can lead to long-term discomfort and problems with function. Disc disorders, such as herniation in the upper discs, stenosis and degenerative problems, such as arthritis can lead to neck pain. Poor posture can contribute to neck pain. Holding the neck in an uncomfortable position for a long period, such as while working at the computer, can lead to neck pain.

Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Can Help

Your chiropractor in Yorkville will take a medical history and will ask questions about the onset of your neck pain and any injuries that may have occurred. The doctor will also do a careful examination and assessment of your neck and upper body. After evaluation of this information, the chiropractor will design a customized care plan for your needs. The manual adjustment may be done to re-align spinal structures in the upper body. Corrective exercise can help to strengthen supporting muscles for more efficient movement. Massage therapy may be administered to improve healing in soft tissues of the neck and upper body. Your Yorkville chiropractor can also advise you on ergonomic improvements you can make at work and at home to prevent further injury.
