Neck Pain Relief in St Albans

Teen with neck pain holding phoneNeck pain is a common complaint, and often impacts the shoulders too. It can be extremely uncomfortable and have a major impact on an individual’s quality of life. Studies have shown chiropractic care helps reduce musculoskeletal symptoms, such as stiffness, headaches, and range-of-motion restriction associated with neck pain.

What Are the Causes?

Some causes of neck pain include injuries from playing sports, trauma, poor posture, age-related degeneration, and stress on the muscles due to physical activities. Our doctors do a full assessment to determine the root cause of your discomfort and help relieve it using natural chiropractic methods, reducing stiffness and pain, and improving range of motion.

Poor posture puts pressure not only on the spine and ligaments, but also forces muscles to compensate, especially the trapezius. Disc issues in the cervical spine may also cause neck pain, making it difficult to do simple things, like check the blind spot while driving.

With the increase in electronics use in our society, we have seen an increase in patients suffering from neck discomfort. And as our children start to use tech at such young ages, it’s become even more apparent.

“Tech neck” is not just from the time spent on computers and cell phones. Constantly looking down or holding the phone between your ear and shoulder creates a forward head posture, and puts enormous strain on the ligaments and cervical spine.

Work Environment

Improper ergonomics at the office or at home may also play a part in neck pain. Many work situations are not optimal, causing neck strain, forward head posture, back strain, hunched shoulders, and more. Our team offers recommendations to improve your work setup, take strain off your neck, and provide some relief.

It’s also important to remember that taking care of your neck on a daily basis helps prevent future episodes of neck pain. Simple things, like sitting up straight, taking regular breaks from the computer and phone, and engaging in gentle stretching exercises, may go a long way to promote neck health.
