In any given year, around 30% of adults in America will experience neck pain. Most of the time, neck pain isn’t an indication that something serious is going on. Instead, it is often caused by muscle strains or overuse due to poor posture or repetitive movements and can be easily treated.
Occasionally, neck pain is caused by a problem with the cervical spine itself or with the lower part of the spine which is causing referred pain. Whatever the cause, Dr. Robert Zahn and Dr. Rob Zahn at Zahn Chiropractic Clinic, Shreveport can help to find out where your pain is coming from and develop a treatment plan that works for you.
Neck pain is usually caused by something mechanical, meaning an issue with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, or soft tissues of the neck. This can be the result of an acute injury, such as a sports injury, or it can be the result of overuse, due to poor posture, sleeping position, and other issues.
Neck pain can also be the result of problems with the cervical discs in the spine, which can put pressure on the nerves of your neck and cause pain. Your chiropractor will be able to diagnose the root cause of your neck pain and will be able to develop a treatment plan to help you recover.
Chiropractic care for the cervical spine can help to relieve the pressure that is caused by mechanical problems in the neck, reducing both pain and stiffness, and it can help to restore the cervical spine’s alignment. Your chiropractor may also make chiropractic adjustments elsewhere in your spine if the alignment issue is stemming from a different part of the spine.
Cervical traction is another common treatment for neck pain. It involves gentle stretching of the cervical spine, pulling your head away from your neck. This can instantly reduce compression and pressure in your neck and help the muscles to relax. It also creates space between the vertebrae in the cervical spine, which can help to treat herniated or bulging discs by creating negative pressure which pulls the bulging disc material back into place. It also promotes healing nutrients to enter the disc.
Cervical traction can reduce your pain related to mechanical neck problems, neck pain caused by problems with your cervical spine, and neck pain caused by pinched nerves. By releasing the pressure in your neck, your muscles are allowed to relax and this can help to reduce the stiffness associated with neck pain.
Neck pain can interfere with your quality of life, affect your sleep and your work productivity, and prevent you from taking part in the hobbies that you enjoy. If you are dealing with neck pain and you want some help, Zahn Chiropractic Clinic, Shreveport can find out exactly what is causing your neck pain and can treat it using therapeutic options such as chiropractic care and traction. You don’t need to suffer in silence and you can get fast and effective relief from your neck pain which will get you back to living your normal life in no time.
