Likely Causes of Neck Pain
Some of the most common causes of neck pain can be as simple as a tight/strained muscle, a pinched nerve or degenerative arthritis. Of course, there are other structures in the neck or health conditions that can trigger neck pain. A Pensacola chiropractor has training just like any other medical physician to determine that source of pain. Additionally, they will tell you if it is a chiropractic problem or if you need a referral elsewhere. Typical causes of neck pain are usually from injuries, poor posture, recent accidents and/or untreated previous accidents.
Consequences of Neck Injury Being Left Untreated
Untreated neck injury can result in permanent and recurring neck discomfort due to scar tissue formation, misalignment & degenerative arthritis.
What to Expect When Getting Treatment From a Pensacola Chiropractor
Treatment for neck pain and neck injuries can consist of different approaches, which may include spinal manipulation, stretching/strengthening exercises, traction (for herniated disks) & massage therapy. Other forms of therapy may also include heat, ice, muscle stem/TENS, etc.
