Neck Pain in Andover
What are some of the causes of neck pain?
Pain is a warning sign from the body that something is wrong. This is often from damaged, irritated, or inflamed tissues. When it comes to the neck, pain most commonly comes from muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, or nerves.
What are some of the symptoms that can occur with neck pain?
Not all neck pain is the same. Sometimes it is dull and achy. Other times it is sharp and shooting. It can also be associated with headaches, migraines, jaw pain, eye pain, ringing in the ears, earaches, or pain shooting into the shoulders or down the arm. Any of these symptoms can be aggravated by prolonged sitting, standing, or certain head movements.
What are the traditional treatments for neck pain?
The traditional treatments for neck pain include: heating pads, ice packs, over the counter pills (Advil, Tylenol, etc.), muscle relaxers, prescription medications, injections, and surgery. Unfortunately these traditional treatments only address the symptoms, not the actual cause of the pain.
What treatments do you offer patients struggling with neck pain?
At Essentials of Life Chiropractic our goal is to fix the cause of your neck pain, rather than just cover up the symptoms. We use cutting edge technology to identify the cause. Then we develop a personalized treatment plan to fix it.
What advice would you give someone suffering with neck pain?
My suggestion to anyone suffering from neck pain would be to have an evaluation in our office. This evaluation will determine if chiropractic can help fix your neck pain. If chiropractic can help with your neck pain, we will put together a treatment plan to help you. If chiropractic cannot help, then we will assist you in finding the right healthcare professional for you.
