If you’re experiencing neck stiffness and pain, it probably seems like you can’t move any muscle in your body without feeling it in your neck. We use the muscles in our neck in so many of the movements we make throughout the day, that it is almost impossible to ignore stiffness and pain in the area. If you’ve tried traditional remedies without satisfactory relief, you may be wondering how chiropractic care could help relieve your symptoms. Below, we discuss the most common causes of neck issues and how chiropractors can help.
Common Causes of Neck Problems
Some of the most common causes of neck stiffness, pain, and other related issues are:
- Poor posture
- Joint damage
- Bone spur
- Herniated cervical disc
- Pinched nerve
- Muscle strain
How Chiropractors Can Help Relieve Your Stiff Neck
By manipulating the bones of the cervical spine, or the part of the spinal cord that runs through your neck, a chiropractor can realign your spinal cord and relieve pressure on the vertebral joints. If your neck pain and stiffness are caused by a pinched nerve or muscle strain, relieving this pressure can bring significant relief and help you regain function in the neck.
For issues like herniated discs, regular chiropractic adjustments can help relieve pressure on the disc and realign the spine around the hernia.
The frequency and length of chiropractic care required depends on the severity of your problem. For neck stiffness caused by injury, extensive treatment may be required, while stiffness due to poor posture can usually be corrected quickly.
