Neck pain is very common and can have many causes. Chiropractic care is an effective and quick way to treat your pain. See below for descriptions of different types of neck pain.
Achy and Dull Pain
Achy and dull pain is commonly seen with those who have poor posture when siting at a desk for long periods of time. The head slowly drifts forward to look at a computer screen or books, which causes the weight of their head to pull on the muscles in the back of their neck. This causes repetitive strain injuries and stress on the joints in the neck. This causes an achy and dull pain that can be hard to pinpoint.
We treat this by relaxing the tense muscles and improving the muscle strength and realignment for correct posture.
Sharp pain is caused by a trauma such as a car accident, work injury, or even sleeping in a bad position. We treat this by first reducing the swelling and returning full movement back to the neck. If gone untreated scar tissue will often form in the muscles and ligaments leading to a high chance of pain coming back in the future.
