Neck Pain and Chiropractic-II

Neck pain is one of the most common conditions treated in the Chiropractic office.
Often neck pain starts after a very minor event such as sudden turning of the neck or sleeping in an akward position. Whiplash or other sports injures may also be the inciting incident in an episode of neck pain. Neck pain may also begin over a longer time frame and have no known cause. Often neck pain may cause a referred pain that travels down the arm. Usually the pain down the arm is felt down the outer arm.
One of the most common causes of neck and arm pain referred from the neck is irritation of the joints of the neck. Irritation of the muscles of the neck may cause a variety of symptoms as well. Problems with the neck muscles may even be associated with dizzyness.
Chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the neck are the most effective treatment in neck pain due to their ability to normalize the motion of the joints of the neck. Chiropractic adjustments are intended to free stuck joints and restore normal motion to joints that are hypomobile. Myofascial release techniques are also highly effective in dealing with neck and arm pain. Myofascial release is often able to treat the trigger points in the muscles that are associated with neck pain, dizzyness and arm pain.
