Neck Pain Relief
Neck pain is a very common symptom that Dr. Dickason sees with his patients. Neck pain can range from being mild to completely debilitating for patients. Dr. Dickason has found that identifying the underlying cause of each individual’s neck pain has allowed him to be able to get quick effective results with patients that are suffering with neck pain. Neck pain can be caused by numerous different things such as vertebral subluxations, herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease, forward head posture, muscular imbalances, whiplash, car accidents, sports injuries, slips and falls, or any other various injuries. Dr. Dickason will perform a thorough evaluation to determine what the cause of your neck pain is. If necessary, Dr. Dickason has digital x-rays on site in order to visualize the underlying misalignments. Being able to see the spinal misalignments allows Dr. Dickason to tailor his adjustments to each individual patient.
Most patients in Dr. Dickason’s office get fast and effective results from neck pain, even neck pain that can be causing headaches or even traveling down an arm.
Everyday life can take a toll on your body. Stress and emotional tension can cause your muscles to contract and stiffen. Sleeping wrong is also a part of daily life that can cause neck stiffness. Daily activity or inactivity can cause pain in the sensitive neck area. Just the way you are living can be a major factor in neck pain. Obesity, poor posture, all the way down to weak abdominal muscles can cause your neck to ache.
Aging is inevitable, though you would like to think you are still young at heart your body is aging over time, whether it be slow or fast. When life starts to catch up with you, you may experience osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease. Over time your neck loses its flexibility, elasticity, and ability to absorb shock. If these are things that you believe could be a cause of your neck pain, Dr. Dickason at Dickason Chiropractic can relieve the pain of these ailments.
Whiplash is the number one injury to the neck. This occurs when there is a sudden forced movement of the head or neck. There is a “rebound effect” associated with whiplash. The supporting tissue of the neck can be injured during the “whipping” motion of whiplash. In such a quick motion, the neck experiences muscle contraction and tightening. Most commonly, whiplash is associated with car accidents. If this is not the case, head injuries are associated with whiplash as well. If you think about it, your head is held up by your neck, so an injury to your head could cause pain in your neck.
