Neck Pain Treatments

Neck discomfort can strike anyone, whether it’s due to awakening from an awkward position or a sudden accident. When neck issues escalate, finding relief becomes crucial. However, the pain generated in the neck region can become quite severe should a structural component become injured or misaligned. Dr. Joshua Edwards and his team at Impact Chiro Sport are dedicated to helping you alleviate neck pain and discomfort if you live or work in the greater Allen, TX, area.

Neck Pain Symptoms

The cervical spine, identified by seven vertebrae (C1-C7), has intervertebral discs that separate these bones, allowing for flexibility and shock absorption. Neck pain manifests in diverse ways–

  • Sharp or dull pain.
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Headache/dizziness.
  • Stiffness.
  • Radiating pain down shoulders, arms, and hands.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Problems with swallowing.

Common Neck Pain Causes

The neck is comprised of various structural components, which makes it susceptible to a range of injuries and diseases. The cause of neck pain varies but may include -

  • Disc Degeneration

Disc degeneration refers to the steady deterioration of spinal intervertebral discs, which cushion and provide stability, flexibility, and shock absorption.

  • Arthritis

With more than 60 million adults in the United States negatively influenced by the symptoms of arthritis, this condition ranks among the leading disability causes in the country.

  • Trauma/Injury

Injuries can occur when playing contact sports, when involved in a motor vehicle mishap, or in various other circumstances. The resulting injuries may lead to conditions like whiplash, neck sprains, muscle tears, ligament ruptures, and vertebral fractures.

  • Muscle Strain

Straining your neck muscles can happen from overuse or misuse, such as hunching over a laptop or smartphone all day at work or school or reading in bed in an awkward position.

  • Spinal/Cervical Stenosis

Stenosis causes the spinal canal to narrow. Although not always, stenosis tends to happen over time and as a function of age. The reduced diameter of the spinal canal causes spinal cord pressure, which can easily cause a host of symptoms.
