Neck Pain Treatments

Neck pain, which is experienced by most people at some point, may begin in the neck region but has the potential to radiate down one or even both arms. The cause of neck pain can typically be sourced to disorders, injuries, or diseases involving the neck region's many components. If you are experiencing acute or chronic neck pain, Dr. Jack Langston and Dr. Sherri Langston at Langston Chiropractic in Florence, AL, who possess advanced certifications for whiplash and traumatology, can determine the underlying cause and help to relieve painful symptoms that may disrupt your everyday routine.

Neck Pain Symptoms

The neck area is associated with the cervical spine, which is made up of seven vertebrae referenced as C1-C7. When the cervical spine is under pressure, the result can be painful; however, it can also be concerning because the nerves connecting your brain with your body all pass through this region.

Neck pain can show up as -  

  • Sharp or dull pain.
  • Reduced range of motion.
  • Headaches and dizziness.
  • Pain that radiates down the shoulders.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Tenderness in the neck.
  • Problems speaking or swallowing.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain varies, but many experience pain simply from years of poor posture. Other causes include -  

  • Arthritis

About 60 million adults in the U.S. are affected by arthritis (and its various symptoms). Arthritis is recognized to be a leading cause of disability in the country.

  • Disc Degeneration

The discs that separate the spine’s bones often break down – either as a function of time or an injury. Disc degeneration may result from any combination of genetic and environmental factors.

  • Trauma/Injury

Injuries (whiplash, ruptured ligaments, a neck sprain, muscle tear) from playing sports, a car accident, or any number of ways can cause neck pain.

  • Spinal/Cervical Stenosis

This medical condition refers to a narrowing, in this case, of the spinal canal in the neck region. The narrowing can create pressure on nerves, which causes pain and a variety of symptoms.

  • Muscle Strain

Overuse or misuse of neck muscles (hunching over a laptop, smartphone, or even a book) may cause a painful strain.
