Generally, we see two types of neck pain cases. Minor neck and shoulder pain involve sensations of discomfort, stiffness or soreness. If these symptoms last longer than a day or so, occur frequently or were preceded by an accident or some type of injury, we consider it major.
Physical, emotional or chemical stress can affect the frequency and severity of neck pain. For many of us, the neck and shoulders are the “weakest link in the chain” and so stress shows up here.
Often, emotional stress is the overlooked culprit. Ever hear of something being a “pain in the neck?” Fear, anger or frustration can trigger the tightening of our neck muscles without us even being conscious of it. In time, chronic muscle spasms set in, which can lead to headaches. Some over-the-counter pain relievers might dull the pain, but they ignore the underlying cause!
At ALLCARE HEALTH & REHABILITATION, we see this sort of thing all the time. It’s almost routine. Chiropractic care has a history of producing excellent results with those suffering from neck pain. And we do it naturally, without drugs or surgery.
