Our Chiropractor in Nanaimo, BC Provides Treatment for Neck Pain
Your neck has the difficult task of supporting your head. You may place additional stress on it by hunching over a laptop or cell phone. Not to mention, your neck has quite a range of motion, which increases its susceptibility to injury, and that's not taking into consideration how much impact an accident can have on your neck. Our chiropractors and team of wellness professionals at Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic in Nanaimo have the ability to help with your discomfort and assist in the healing process, though.
Causes of Neck Pain
Repetitive motions may possibly put a strain on the muscles and other soft tissue in your neck. If you have poor posture, you're putting even more stress on your neck region. Injuries are another cause of neck pain. For instance, during a car accident or another personal injury like a blow to your head, the impact propels your neck forward and backward rapidly causing whiplash, which leads to symptoms such as :
- Loss in the range of motion
In more serious cases, you could damage the muscles, nerves, discs, soft tissue, or nerves. If the impact misaligns the vertebrae in your neck, it irritates the surrounding nerves and tissue in the area. Other possible causes of neck pain occur from the following:
- Age-related disorders like spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease
- Weak abdominal muscles
How our Chiropractor in Nanaimo Can Help
Chiropractic care involves drug-free holistic treatment that helps your body naturally reduce pain and promote healing. A common chiropractic treatment that our chiropractor uses is a manual adjustment to address the alignment in the spine. During an adjustment, our chiropractor gently realigns the vertebrae in your neck, so they line up with the discs. Ultimately, this relieves pain and can provide you with a quicker healing time.
Our chiropractor may suggest exercise therapy in addition, or as a stand-alone treatment, for neck pain. When you undergo exercise therapy, we will guide you through a series of exercises that go at a pace that's comfortable for you. The intensity of the exercises increases over time to optimize the range of motion in your neck. You may also receive a variety of wellness services from our health care team, like massage therapy, which is a special type of massage that targets the muscles and other soft tissue. It reduces pain and soreness while enhancing circulation to the area to encourage healing.
