Get Help for Your Neck Pain in Inman and Greer
The term neck pain is much more complicated than the average person realizes. Generally when people think about neck pain they get the fact that the term is used to describe pain in the cervical region of the spine. The thing that the average person fails to realize is that there is a system of nerves, muscles, bones, and discs that actually form the neck. The cervical region of the spine is composed of more than one of the body’s systems which means that neck pain could be caused by a number of reasons. Our chiropractors here at Enhanced Living Chiropractic in Greer and Inman, our chiropractor understands the origins of neck pain and how it should be treated. In the majority of the cases we see here in our office, neck pain is a benign process; however our chiropractor recommends people have their symptoms evaluated because neck pain can be an indicator of a serious medical condition. Here is some more information about neck pain, and how we approach neck pain treatment.
Some Common Causes of Neck Pain
Degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis are the most common sources of neck pain in terms of disease processes. We see many patients here in our practice for neck pain treatment due to improper body mechanics, and for conditions like text neck. People who have been in an accident, or have had a recent fall are also prone to having neck pain. Text neck is not as commonly known as other conditions; however, its occurrence is growing more prevalent each day. Text neck is the result of the strain and stress that is placed on the neck when people hold their heads down while they are using their computers, or talking or texting on their phones or other mobile devices. Though the name text neck might sound comical to some, our team wants people to knot that text neck is a serious condition which can lead to herniation of discs and other degenerative processes.
The Role of the Chiropractor In The Treatment Of Neck Pain
One of the main reasons people should consider seeing a chiropractor for their neck pain treatment is because chiropractors focus on finding and treating the source of the pain. Traditional medical doctors focus on treating pain. Our chiropractor provides safe and effective neck pain treatment without the use of medications. Our doctor uses a core of assessment tools to evaluate our patients. Some of these tools include a physical exam, a complete history and physical and X-rays. Once our chiropractor has completed his assessment he creates a treatment plan for each of our patients based on his findings.
