Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain Causes and Symptoms
Many things cause neck pain—you can control some of them, but others are out of your control. But most neck injury and pain conditions respond well to chiropractic care, which also provides relief for numbness and tingling related to the following causes:
Poor Posture—You see this everywhere: kids hunched over mobile devices, adults hunched over their computers, kids and adults sleeping in awkward positions, etc. Long-term poor neck posture pulls vertebrae out of alignment, maladapting muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as causing a pinched nerve—or several.
Whiplash and Sudden Neck Injury—Whiplash is the most common car accident injury, but it can also be a sports injury. Athletes (kids and adults alike) can suffer whiplash whenever the head is suddenly whipped back and forth by a sudden jolt.
