Did you know?

With so many people nowadays leading a sedentary lifestyle, hunching over computers and smartphones for hours on end, it is no wonder one in 10 Australians experiences neck pain at any given time. However, neck pain should not prevent you from performing your work tasks, engaging in everyday activities and enjoying life. A professional chiropractor can help you relieve neck pain and improve your overall well being.

What is neck pain?

Neck pain is ache, soreness or stiffness in or around the neck area (the cervical spine). It can occur solely in the neck (axial neck pain) or spread to other areas like shoulders, arms and even fingers (radicular neck pain). Additionally, it can shoot into the head, causing a throbbing or stabbing headache.

Neck pain can be acute or chronic.

Acute pain occurs immediately and is part of the initial phase of neck pain and/or injury. For instance, it can be that sudden burst of pain you feel after turning your head too quickly or further than normal, like straining a muscle. It is important to get any neck pain assessed and treated by a professional as it could be something serious.
Chronic pain, on the other hand, can impact your life longer. If your neck ache persists for more than a few weeks, you have chronic neck pain and should seek advice from a health professional to find out the cause.
At Chiropractic Treats, we recommend you come in for an assessment and a chiropractic neck treatment as early as possible.

Symptoms of neck pain

How are you today?

Many people assume neck pain is easy to identify and ignore certain symptoms,  thinking they have nothing to do with neck pain.

Here are the crucial questions to ask yourself to determine if you have neck ache:

Do you feel neck pain every morning upon waking up?
Is your neck stiff, making it difficult to move your head?
Are your neck muscles aching constantly?
Do you experience stabbing pain in the neck?
Do you feel soreness and tightness in your shoulders?
Do you feel pain radiating down your back, shoulders and arms?
Are your hands or fingers tingling?
Are you experiencing tension headaches (intense pain feeling like you have a tight band around your head)?
Are you experiencing balance and coordination issues?

If you have answered any of these questions positively, that is a tell-tale sign of neck pain.

What causes neck pain?

Your neck has the tough job of holding your head which weighs 5 kg or the equivalent of a bowling ball. It is no surprise, that your neck bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments must work hard all day to support it and ensure spinal alignment. Once they fall out of balance due to poor posture or an injury, the result is strain, tension and neck pain.
So, what exactly causes neck pain?
