Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Neck pain is a common issue that can be debilitating. It can be caused by many different things and may occur suddenly or it can be a gradual onset that seems to get worse over time. Chiropractic care can alleviate neck pain. At Lambert Chiropractic Health Centre in Mississauga, ON, our team can help. Our chiropractor diagnoses and treats neck pain and a variety of other ailments.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain can be caused by many things, including injuries like whiplash, which occurs when the head snaps forward and backward quickly. This can be caused by auto accidents and sports injuries. Aging can give you neck pain due to arthritis. A joint disorder called osteoarthritis can affect the joints in the neck. Spinal stenosis causes changes in the discs, which can eventually lead to neck, shoulder, and arm pain. Degenerative disc disease can create the same changes in discs as spinal stenosis. Other causes of neck pain include poor posture and straining the neck to look at a digital screen. Sleeping in a strange position can also cause neck pain. When left untreated, neck pain can begin to cause shoulder and back pain.
Diagnosing Neck Pain
When you first visit us, our chiropractor will ask you questions about your neck pain. We will look at your medical history and lifestyle, as well. Our chiropractor will then perform a physical exam to look for the root cause of your pain and any underlying conditions. We may also take X-rays to get a better look at your neck and determine what is causing your pain. After a diagnosis, our chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Neck Pain Treatment
Treatment will vary depending on the diagnosis. Our chiropractor provides adjustments to treat any misalignment in the neck. This will alleviate tension and pressure in the neck. We also provide corrective exercises. Stretching and strengthening exercises will improve your range of motion in your neck and your muscles to improve the ability to turn your head and reduce pain and inflammation.
Our chiropractor can also offer you advice on how to avoid future neck pain. Improving your posture and workplace ergonomics can alleviate neck pain.
