Neck Pain

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Your neck is an important part of your body and has many functions. While your neck helps your head turn in almost all directions, this flexibility can cause injuries to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones located on your neck.

Fortunately, instead of relying on pain-relieving medications for neck pain relief, chiropractic care offers a natural treatment approach to neck pain. At Darin Chiropractic in Granite City, IL, our team of experts will provide safe, effective treatment options for your neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of activities, but here are the most common:

  • Trauma: Whiplash is common in auto accidents. A whiplash injury causes neck pain, stiffness, blurred vision, and dizziness if not treated early. Slips, falls, blows, and sports injuries can also injure neck muscles, triggering pain.
  • Poor ergonomics: The way you sit, walk, and sleep can trigger neck pain. Poor posture can cause chronic neck pain that may radiate to your back and arms.
  • Osteoarthritis: This inflammatory disease causes bone spurs that cause pain and affect the movement of joints.
  • Text neck: If you spend much of your time looking at your mobile devices, this may lead to muscle strain, poor posture, and subluxations that will trigger neck pain.

Symptoms of Neck Pain

Neck pain can affect your quality of life. Depending on the cause of your neck pain, you may experience the following symptoms.

  • Neck stiffness that makes it difficult to turn or nod your head
  • Numbness or tingling on your arms
  • Clicking or grating sounds when turning your neck
  • Dizziness and tension headaches
  • Muscle spasms

While neck pain can go away on its own, it’s important to seek treatment so your condition does not reoccur or cause other health complications.
