Neck Pain Chiropractor Townsville Pimlico
Many who experience neck pain may choose to ignore it or take some over the counter medicine to address the pain. When you take a few moments to recognize the important role the neck plays in human physiology, it can make you realize how important addressing neck pain quickly can be.
The neck not only supports the head and provides almost an unlimited range of motion, it serves as a conduit for nerves, oxygen and blood flow to the brain. To disregard or minimize neck pain can impair the quality of your life. At Back2Health, we believe the more you understand neck pain, the more you'll appreciate the benefits of natural chiropractic care in its treatment.
General Causes of Neck Pain
There are four general causes of neck pain. Most neck pain can be traced to one or more of these four causes.
- Trauma – Trauma to the neck area can come from an auto accident, sports injury or a slip and fall at home or work. A straining of the neck, whiplash, is a common neck injury. It occurs when the head moves rapidly back and forth or side to side. Trauma often causes a misalignment in the neck area.
- Lifestyle – The use of electronic devices, poor posture, poor nutrition, and lack of exercise can all lead to neck pain. Poor ergonomics in the workplace is also a contributor to neck pain.
- Illness – Illness' like arthritis, infections, and even cancer can lead to neck pain.
- Degeneration – Much of neck pain, especially in older Americans, is related to degeneration. As we age, we can lose some of the cushioning material in our neck and back, leading to pinched nerves.
