Mercer Island Chiropractic Eases Neck Pain for Seattle, WA Locals
Most people will experience neck pain at some time in their life. It is a common condition and can have a variety of causes. Some of these causes include trauma or injury, a trapped nerve, arthritis, worry and stress, improper work posture and computer use, gardening, falling asleep in a chair, normal aging, daily wear and tear. Neck pain can feel like mild discomfort to severe, burning pain. Sometimes the pain can be sudden and intense, or “acute”. If the pain has lasted more than three months, it is “chronic” neck pain. And in some cases, there can be dangerous signals associated with neck pain.
Why is a Seattle, WA Chiropractor Beneficial for Neck Pain?
Here in our Seattle neck pain clinic, chiropractic care can help restore proper joint motion. You see, most of the pain-sensing nerves in your neck are located in the pairs of facet joints on the back side of each vertebra. These smooth, interlocking surfaces allow you to rotate your head and bend your head up and down. If these joints become locked or fixated, neck pain can result. A more difficult problem to correct is the degenerative changes that result from neglect. Years of uncorrected spinal problems can cause bone spurs, disc thinning and other forms of spinal decay. These types of problems respond more slowly and on-going supportive chiropractic treatments may be necessary. Many of our patients seek chiropractic care instead of intensive surgery or prescription drugs so they can fully enjoy the unique Northwest lifestyle. Best of all, chiropractic treatments are holistic and very effective.
