Neck pain is often the result of an unfortunate accident that causes injury to neck muscles and tissues. Pain may start minor and intensify as time goes by. Chiropractic care can help naturally relieve the root cause of neck pain and prevent it from reoccurring. If you are suffering from back pain, our team at Crimson Chiropractic Center in Tuscaloosa is ready to help. Here are some frequently asked questions patients have about neck pain and how chiropractic care can help.

What are some common causes of neck pain?

We often see patients suffering from neck pain due to car crashes, sports injuries, work accidents, or other personal injuries. If you’ve ever been in an auto accident, you may have suffered from whiplash, a common neck injury. Whiplash strains the muscles and tissues in your neck, causing pain and stiffness. Neck pain can also be caused by poor posture, misalignment of your cervical spine, or degenerative disc conditions. With more people working from home, our chiropractors have been working with patients suffering from text neck. Text neck is a condition where neck muscles are strained due to poor posture when using digital devices.

Besides pain, what other symptoms are associated with neck injuries?

Pain and stiffness are common symptoms. You may also experience headaches, dizziness, back pain, loss of neck mobility, and arm numbness and weakness. Whiplash can make it difficult for you to move your neck without pain. In addition, text neck can be accompanied by neck or shoulder stiffness. Rather than endure neck pain and stiffness, we recommend scheduling a consultation at our Tuscaloosa office, so our chiropractors can determine the cause of your symptoms.

How do chiropractors treat neck pain?

Chiropractic care specializes in the treatment of muscle, joint, ligament, tendon, and nerve injuries. That’s why it’s ideal for neck pain and stiffness. Our Tuscaloosa chiropractors use non-invasive therapies like manual adjustments, massage, and therapeutic exercises to reduce pain and promote the body’s natural healing process. Chiropractic adjustments help realign the cervical spine to take pressure off of nerve roots, helping to reduce pain. Massage therapy soothes tense muscles and joints to relieve pain and discomfort. It also boosts blood flow to injured neck tissues to help your recovery.  

What can I do at home to relieve neck pain?

We’ll recommend therapeutic exercises that you can do at home to restore flexibility and mobility and promote your body’s healing process. Your lifestyle and diet will also play a role in your recovery. We’ll help you develop healthy dietary and lifestyle habits that can improve your health and wellness over the years through our lifestyle counseling.
