Are you suffering from chronic or recurring neck pain? Neck pain can compromise your quality of life, making it painful to even sit or stand for extended and sleep comfortably through the night. Traditional treatments for neck pain rely on medication to provide temporary pain relief. Medication works by dulling pain symptoms; consequently, once the drugs wear off, your pain will return. Chiropractic care is different. Our chiropractor creates customized Edison neck pain management programs that address the underlying mechanical cause for your pain, providing long-term pain relief without the need for medication or invasive surgery.
Whiplash injuries are one of the primary causes for Edison neck pain. Whiplash injuries affect millions of Americans each year. Many individuals are surprised to learn that they do not have to be in a major car accident to sustain whiplash injuries. In fact, a rear-impact fender bender at speeds as slow as 5mph can “whip” the cervical spine beyond its natural range of motion. This whipping action creates an abnormal “C” curve in the spine, knocking the upper cervical spine into a hyperextended position and the lower cervical spine is into a hyperflexed position. In addition to neck pain, whiplash injury symptoms include recurring headaches, migraines, and difficulty concentrating. Individuals may also suffer from sleep disturbances due to recurring pain.
If you have sustained a whiplash injury, chiropractic adjustments are key to long-term pain relief. As long as the abnormal “C” curve persists in your neck, pain will continue. Chiropractic adjustments bring mechanical alignment back to the neck, correcting the hyperflexion and hyperextension that is causing your pain. Our chiropractor may also recommend gentle corrective exercises. These exercises are a safe way to restore mobility to the neck without further aggravating your injuries.
Poor posture is also a contributing factor for neck pain. Long hours hunched over a computer screen at work can negatively impact posture, causing neck strain and pain. Forward head and shoulder posture also strains the neck. As patients strain forward to reach a computer or read words on a monitor, the forward pull of the head places added stress on the cervical vertebra, contributing to degenerative disc disease. Hunched shoulders and a rounded upper back typically accompany this posture, which exacerbates neck pain and also causes shoulder pain.
If poor posture is a cause for your neck pain, a combination of chiropractic care, corrective exercises and ergonomic changes can make a significant difference for your health. Chiropractic adjustments help bring proper alignment back to the cervical spine. Ergonomic changes, such as adjusting the height and position of your desk chair, also help ease your pain. While these changes may seem small, together they add up to big pain relief.
