Chiropractic for Neck Pain
The cause for neck pain is almost always from trauma – either acutely or repetitive over a course of time. Unfortunately, the pain may not be felt for years as the spine in the neck starts to break down. And if not taken care of appropriately this can lead to degeneration of spine, a disc herniation and/or muscle spasms leading to pain.
The onset of degeneration in the neck can be caused by repetitive traumas over a course a time such as having poor posture day after day, year after year. Alternatively, degeneration in the neck can be caused by an acute trauma like whiplash from a motor vehicle accident. When the spine degenerates, this causes the discs in the neck to thin which leads to nerve compression. This can lead to numbness and tingling down the arms to the hands and fingers.
