Causes and Symptoms of Neck Stiffness and Pain
Neck pain can be caused by any number of injuries and ailments, like poor posture while working or using a mobile device, overuse and whiplash. The most common cause, however, is whiplash, which typically occurs during car accidents. However, whiplash, which is a severe sprain and strain of the neck, can occur during falls or tackles or any other time where the head and neck are forced outside of their normal range of motion. The injury causes neck stiffness, pain, headaches and blurry vision. It has also been known to cause upper back and shoulder pain as well as pain that radiates down one arm.
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Management with our Chiropractor in Minneapolis
If you’ve been in an auto accident, recently taken a hard fall or been involved in a sports accident, you may have whiplash. It can take weeks for symptoms to fully manifest. For this reason, our chiropractor in Minneapolis recommends scheduling an appointment for chiropractic care shortly after your accident. Getting examined, diagnosed and treated before your symptoms fully manifest can help with pain management and may decrease your recovery time.
Our chiropractor often recommends chiropractic adjustments as a first treatment option for individuals with whiplash and neck stiffness and pain. Adjustments are designed to place the cervical vertebrae back into their proper positions. This helps restore movement while reducing inflammation and helping you find pain relief.
Massage therapy helps relax your muscles and ligaments while reducing overall muscle pain. It can also help lower inflammation and increase circulation. When massage is utilized before an adjustment, the adjustment can be easier and last longer.
Corrective exercises and targeted stretches can help you as your body starts to recover from your neck injury. The stretches can help further increase the flexibility of your neck, and the exercises can help you regain lost strength in your upper back, shoulders and neck.
Our chiropractor may offer some nutritional counseling while you heal. Eating the right amounts of fruits, vegetables and lean meats can help reduce inflammation, and give your body the fuel it needs to heal and regenerate on a cellular level.
