What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain can range from mildly annoying to severely debilitating. It can seem to come out of nowhere or you may have experienced it for years. Why is it important to seek help for your neck pain and how can your Orlando chiropractor at Pavlik Center for Health and Wellness address this pain? Let's first start with the common causes of neck pain.
Neck pain generally is caused from three broad areas.
1. Trauma. It's reasonably easy to see how some sort of trauma would cause neck pain. Whiplash from an auto accident, for example, or a sports injury or fall at work can strain the neck and damage it.
2. Illness. Neck pain can be caused by a variety of illnesses like cancer or even a viral infection.
3. Degeneration. More commonly known as “wear and tear”, over time the discs in the neck and back can become herniated and lose its cushioning ability. It can also lead to a pinched nerve.
4. Lifestyle. Neck pain can also be caused by how you live your everyday life. This includes your posture, weight, lack of movement, diet and more.
Why it is Important to Seek Help for Neck Pain?
The answer to this is fairly simple. Neck pain may only get worse if left untreated. Pain is a signal from your body that something is wrong and needs to be addressed. Ignoring it or masking it with pain killers may resolve the immediate symptoms, but it will not address the core cause or seek to correct it.
How Chiropractic Care Treats Neck Pain
Your Orlando chiropractor at Pavlik Center for Health and Wellness will first conduct an exam including, perhaps, a postural screening, range of motion tests and other diagnostic testing to determine the root cause of your neck pain. He will next prescribe a treatment program using a variety of holistic modalities to address your pain for the long-term, These treatments may include acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, decompression therapy and more. Many patients find some relief after a single treatment, but the goal is lasting relief.
