Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment
Neck pain is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal disorders in the United States. Neck pain can affect anyone, but is more common in:
- People above the age of 45 with a sedentary lifestyle or who have had a bad posture for a long time
- People who spend long hours sitting at the computer, studying, or hunched over their phone
- People with whiplash after a traffic accident
When you think about how much weight your neck supports, it’s no surprise that it can get stiff and achy. A 2014 study showed that tilting your head forward at a 15-degree angle puts about 27 pounds on the spine, at 30 degrees it's 40 pounds, at 45 degrees it's 49 pounds, and at 60 degrees it's 60 pounds.
Neck pain is a common reason many people use pain relief medications and muscle relaxants. However, if you’re looking for a more permanent solution, chiropractic care treats the root cause of neck pain. It provides long-lasting pain relief as opposed to symptomatic treatment.
