Neck pain can cause even the smallest of movements of the head, neck, shoulders, arms and back to be very difficult. Neck pain can lead to headaches and difficulty in using the body at all. The small size of the vertebrae in the neck - which make the neck more mobile – also make it more vulnerable to pain and injury.
Some causes of neck pain include:
- Abnormalities in bone structure
- Joint issues
- Muscle strains and pulls
- Poor posture
- Repetitive Stress
- Sleeping position
Most of the causes are either due to or affect the alignment of the spine. When the misalignment occurs, the nerves become irritated and cause further tension. Since every nerve has its root in the spinal column, issues that start in the neck have an impact throughout every other system
Chiropractic treatment addresses the structural cause of the majority of neck pain. After a thorough assessment, Dr. Rob Cartwright in Fairfield, would identify the source of the issue, put together a customized treatment plan, provide relief, and would restore long-term health to your neck and body.
