Natural Neck Injury and Pain Relief Treatment in Wheat Ridge
Your neck is where the spinal cord emerges from the base of the brain, making it a critically important part of your nervous system. That’s why neck pain, whatever the cause, frequently comes with other symptoms like headaches, numbness and tingling and other symptoms. Whether you’ve suffered whiplash from a car accident or sports injury, or your kids have developed “tech neck”, schedule an appointment with your Wheat Ridge chiropractor at Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health for effective, drug-free neck pain relief treatment: 303.238.6500.
Chiropractic Care Eases Text Neck, Whiplash and More
Most cases of neck pain, in adults and kids, respond very well to natural chiropractic care. The causes of neck pain can be as individual as the person suffering, but they generally fall into two main categories.
- Poor Posture and Ergonomics—More than ever, kids and adults slouch over their electronic devices. Neck pain from these particular hours of bad posture is called “tech neck” or “text neck”. Consistent, incorrect posture strains the muscles, ligaments and tendons that support the neck vertebrae, pulling them slowly out of place. This can pinch a nerve (or two, or more) that can cause numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, headaches, difficulty concentrating and more.
- Neck Injury—Whiplash is the most common car accident injury, and it often impacts athletes who suffer sudden sports injuries too. Whiplash often displays delayed symptoms, so if you have neck pain that doesn’t seem to have a clear cause, see your chiropractor right away for diagnosis and treatment.
