Neck Pain Chiropractor in San Jose, CA
What is neck pain?
Neck pain or cervical pain is a problem caused by the patient's neck due to accidents, sudden movements, and other factors. Neck strain is often called whiplash and it usually occurs as a result of car accidents. The pain caused due to neck pain can also affect the head, shoulder blades, and the muscles in the patient’s neck. Injuries to the discs in the spinal cord are also a common cause of chronic neck pain. Therefore neck pain is a problem that requires careful and controlled chiropractic help. Without effective treatment, neck pain can also spread to the other parts of the patient’s body.
What are the symptoms of neck pain?
The different symptoms of neck pain are:
- Decreased motion in the neck and an inability to move the neck from side to side or up and down.
- Strain in the neck muscles.
- Stiffness in the neck and a feeling of tenderness.
- Recurring headaches at the base of the patient’s skull.
- Weakness, dizziness and even nausea.
Why is chiropractic care used to treat neck pain?
Chiropractors are skilled at helping patients who are experiencing pain in their neck. They use a process of hands-on manipulation, massages, and adjustments to release the tension that is stored in the muscles and to reduce the neck pain through this process. Manual manipulation of the muscles in the neck helps to restore the neck back to its normal functioning. Chiropractic treatment is, therefore, an effective method of treating neck pain and whiplash since it is an all-around procedure. The chiropractor not only treats the neck muscles and the ligaments, but they also help the patient to improve their lifestyle and their overall health.
If you are facing any problems with your neck like the ones mentioned above, then it is important to contact a chiropractor to help you with this pesky problem. With a careful and controlled process of treatment, you will not face any more pain and will be able to lead a happier and a more productive life.
