Neck Pain

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck Pain Relief Schaumburg

Many of the same causes of lower back pain apply to upper cervical neck pain. However, there are additional causes to be considered such as whiplash, neck strain, pinched nerves and a growing epidemic called tech-neck. Tech-neck is a term that refers to the strain in your neck and shoulder muscles that develops from craning your neck down too often when you are looking at a phone, tablet, or computer. This unnatural position causes many problems as a result of the reversing of the natural curve in your spine. When the curve in the neck starts to decrease, or even worse starts to reverse, it puts a major stain on the nerve flow from the brain to the body.

Symptoms and Problems of Neck Pain and Tech-Neck

When the nerve flow is compromised, your body is not going to function and heal as optimally. Regular headaches or migraines, neck aches, stiff shoulders, overall body soreness, carpel tunnel, insomnia, depression, anxiety, sinus problems and a compromised immune system are all symptoms of a decreased or reversed curve in the neck. If the problem continues to progress without detection, arthritis of the spine can occur. At which point, the symptoms are exacerbated and may become permanent leading to more serious conditions including to lack of mobility, chronic pain, and overall compromised health and quality of life.

Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain

Once the severity of the problem is identified, a treatment plan that may include regular adjustments, cervical mobilization, gentle manual traction and at home treatments can be implemented to regain the beautiful natural neck curve and relieve neck pain.

Pro DC Tips for Tech-Neck

  • Log off and unplug – Set tech limits for children and for yourself!
  • Adjust your posture – Bring your phone up to eye level!
  • Exercise often – Exercise such as yoga that elongates your neck can relieve the strain of these often-overstrained muscles
  • Take care of your neck – regular chiropractic adjustments can go a long way to having a healthy neck.

Wellness care

When a patient is pain free, wellness chiropractic care is a very effective method to maintain lasting health and wellness. Often visits once or twice a month are sufficient to keep the body in balance.

To support chiropractic wellness visits, Dr. Davis recommends the following lifestyle and nutrition advice for prevention and wellness care. Read more about prevention and wellness.

Depending on the condition that is causing hip pain, patients may feel discomfort in the hip joint, outside the hip joint, in the buttocks, thigh or groin. Pain may radiate to the hip from other areas of the body. Pain typically worsens with activity, patients may have a reduced range of motion or even develop a limp from chronic hip pain.

Dr. Davis will work to determine the source of your hip pain and create a personalized treatment plan that could include chiropractic adjustments, exercise therapy, posture advice, stretching, and more. Multiple studies have found that chiropractic adjustments are effective in relieving sciatica, a common cause of pain in the hip and lower back. A number of studies have evaluated the efficacy of chiropractic to surgery for sciatica and found that up to 60% of chiropractic patients with severe sciatica had substantially improved symptoms that enabled them to avoid surgery.
