Causes of Neck Pain
Here are the most common issues that could be causing your neck pain:
Bad posture: Do you hunch or slouch at your desk all day long? If so, then neck pain seems like a very likely possibility for you.
Your computer: Do you spend hours staring at a computer? While this certainly can’t be good for your well-being, it’s also bad for your neck, especially if the screen sits too high or too low.
Sleep habits: While it might not always seem like we get to spend as much time in bed as we would like, how we sleep certainly affects how our body feels. Any time you fall asleep in an awkward position for your body, you risk issues such as neck, shoulder or back pain.
“Text Neck”: How many hours would you say you spend playing on your phone or tablet? Probably a lot more than you want to admit. But if you are spending hours each day with your head down and your neck crunched staring at this little device, you better believe your neck is going to revolt at some point.
Strained Movement: Ever quickly turn or jerk you neck the wrong way? Twisting and stretching can strain, sprain and even tear the muscles.
So, what can your chiropractor in Attleboro, Dorchester, West Roxbury, Brockton, Taunton, Weymouth and Somerset, MA do to alleviate your neck pain?
Through chiropractic adjustment, also referred to as spinal manipulation (or in this case cervical spinal manipulation), we can manipulate through gentle, controlled thrusts, certain areas of the spine that are out of alignment and could be causing this pain and discomfort. The goal of spinal manipulation is to reduce pain and improve both function and range of motion. Other therapies to consider include massage, therapeutic heat/cold application and certain stretching/strengthening exercises.
