An episode of neck pain can quickly hamper your everyday activities. Whether you began experiencing pain due to injury, degenerative spinal changes, or poor posture, it can be difficult to think about anything except the pain when you’re struggling. It’s estimated that 70% of people experience neck pain in their life, but you should know there is a path towards relief.
Neck pain can create everything from headaches to pain in your arms and hands to pain directly on your neck. Different types of pain indicate different issues. The most common reasons for neck pain are strained muscles and stuck spinal joints. Each of these challenges can cause a lot of pain and may have you fearing that you have a more significant issue. But, with a proper examination, our team can pinpoint the cause of your pain and provide a complete plan of care to help you reclaim your life from neck pain.
- Facet joints are small spinal joints at the back of your spine which can become fixated or stuck and cause pain
- Muscle strains can occur due to poor posture at your desk or sleeping in an awkward position
- Motion heals: relief typically begins by reducing the inflammation and improving your range of motion
Next Steps: A small adjustment can make big changes in your quality of life. Decarlo Chiropractic is focused on helping you feel (and function) better by improving your spinal motion and then providing you with the stretches and exercises you can do at home to continue your improvement.
