Neck pain is a common complaint across the nation that almost everyone will experience at some point in their lives. It is also a chief reason for beginning chiropractic care, as chiropractic adjustments often bring about relief. A gentle adjustment from Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar can offer relief from minor neck pain to severe, intense neck pain. Whatever type of pain you are experiencing, don’t let it affect your day-to-day life any longer.
Causes of Neck Pain
Poor posture is one of the primary causes of neck pain. Forward head posture puts added pressure on the neck, which can lead to stress and muscle strain. In fact, for every inch your neck moves forward, it can add up to 10 pounds of pressure to the neck as these muscles must work hard to keep the head from dropping to the chest. Those who sit in an office are much more likely to experience neck pain. “Tech neck” is a common occurrence among office workers or those who use significant amounts of technology such as tablets or smartphones. Tech neck occurs when the overuse of technology causes a head to be farther forward on the neck than normal, with the shoulders slumped in a way that puts additional strain on the neck. Other movements such as twisting, bending, repetitive motions, or even simply moving the wrong way, can lead to debilitating neck pain. However, neck pain doesn’t have to dictate your life. Chiropractic care is natural way to alleviate all neck pain and any related health issues.
