One of the most common reasons for neck pain is accidents. In particular, auto accidents are a frequent reason for neck pain. In an auto collision, the neck is suddenly thrown one way and then the opposite way with considerable force. This results in whiplash, named for the whipping motion made by the neck. It causes the muscles to tighten and contract in an unnatural way, and it may also cause damage to vertebral discs, joints, and ligaments. In other cases, neck pain happens because of the passage of time. As people grow older, they are more likely to develop conditions that impact the spinal column (and therefore the neck) such as osteoarthritis. Other reasons for neck pain may include bad posture, a weak muscle core that interferes with spine alignment and excess weight that pulls the spine out of alignment.
Your chiropractor will ask you a series of questions about your neck pain, as this can help them to more accurately diagnose and treat the problem. Typically, the doctor will want to know when the pain began, how you have tried to manage the pain thus far, whether the pain travels (radiates) outside the neck and if there is anything that gives you some relief from the pain.
Your chiropractic caregiver will perform a cervical manipulation, better known as a neck adjustment. This treatment involves hands-on manipulation of the cervical joints. This type of adjustment will quickly help to regain range of motion, allowing the neck to turn in all directions freely again. The neck will also feel less stiff, sore and painful after this type of adjustment. Sometimes, chiropractic adjustment may be combined with massage or physiotherapy to aid in faster healing and improved pain relief.
