CHRONIC NECK PAIN IN KINGSTON WA
We have all been there ....... we wake up one morning and we cannot turn our neck. The pain is so intense it's hard to lift our head off the pillow. The next question is, what do we do, do we go to work? Do we take Excedrin? Or do we just push through the day?
Millions of Americans are faced with these questions every day and most take a pain medication to get through the day and ignore the pain as it comes on at work. The problem with this approach is the underlying issues can get worse. If underlying issues are left untreated, a short term neck spasm, can turn into a chronic issue that affects every activity of daily living. Kingston Chiropractors know natural solutions that will keep you from reaching for the pill bottles.
COMMON CAUSES FOR NECK PAIN IN KINGSTON
- Cervical disc irritation
We have seven vertebrae that make up the cervical spine. There are also seven discs that make up the cushions in between the seven bones in the cervical spine. Overtime due to repetitive stress or acute traumas, the discs can irritate surrounding nerves and causes intense sharp pain and also extremity arm pain
- Common Solutions for disc pain: Cervical traction with Chiropractic is highly successful at decreasing the pressure on nerve roots that exit the spine. Usually, within 1 to 3 visits, patients had a decrease in pain and an increase in range of motion.
- Muscle sprain and strain:
The most common cause for a neck sprain and strain is a whiplash injury from a car accident. This is when the neck is viciously flexed forward and extended back causing irritation of the muscles, ligaments and tendons that make up the neck.
- Natural solutions to sprain strain: Acupuncture is highly successful at increasing circulation to damaged structures like ligaments and muscles, therefore accelerating the healing process and allowing optimal recovery from severe whiplash
- Spinal subluxation:
Spinal subluxation is characterized by restricted joints in the cervical spine that left untreated well decrease neck range of motion, increased inflammation and caused a localized pain.ex: facet syndrome
- Natural approach for spinal subluxation: Chiropractic is a very successful modality at eliciting motion and restoring normal functional inside a joint. Also, by avoiding inflammatory foods such as sugar, bread, and dairy, you can decrease inflammation around the joints which will also help with fixated joints
