Because of the importance of the cervical vertebrae to your posture, any problems with often lead to neck pain and accompanying headaches. It is one of the most common reasons why people see a chiropractor, because of the proven benefits the technique provides.
The primary treatment consists of correcting the position of the vertebrae, so that the muscles in that region gain the necessary support to relax. Then, the tension caused by the unnatural load is lifted, and the neck pain dissolves.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Because you use your arms so much during the day, and even more if you are employed in a load-lifting capacity, your shoulders and neck are subjected to constant stresses. Because this stress is persistent, the tension builds and builds until it adversely affects the vertebral structure. This can come in the form of osteoarthritis, which happens when chronic inflammation sets in, compromising the healthy relationship between your spinal vertebrae and the surrounding muscular structure.
It is important to seek help from a chiropractor if you have neck pain issues, so as to obtain help at the root cause, instead of constantly taking palliative measures for this recurring ailment. Furthermore, because chiropractic addresses the cervical-muscle link, it apprehends long-term damage from deterioration of this system; thereby preventing osteoarthritis from the inflammation that arises from the persistent trauma.
In addition to the above, massive stresses such as whiplash can cause neck pain and shoulder issues. The root cause in this case is always structural damage to the spinal column, which is precisely what chiropractic addresses.
