Neck Pain Relief in Vero Beach, FL
The only thing more worrying than an acute or chronic case of neck pain is the prospect of enduring major surgery or living on a diet of painkillers to keep that pain at bay. If your neck is preventing you from enjoying life or doing your job, it's time you took the "chiro" approach to neck pain. Here at Bartkus Chiropractic Center, we use chiropractic care and other safe, non-surgical techniques to help you get back on good terms with your neck.
Why & How Neck Pain Strikes
Neck pain is a more complicated issue than you might think, if only because the neck itself is a more complicated area of the body than many people realize. The cervical vertebral column that protects your spinal cord is supported by muscles, articulated by delicate facet joints, and cushioned by cartilaginous discs. This presents many potential trouble points, any of which can become altered or impaired in a way that produces neck pain. Typical causes include:
- Acute injuries - Auto accidents and other violent mishaps can snap the head back and forward strongly enough to cause whiplash, leaving you with severe neck pain and stiffness among other debilitating symptoms. Acute injuries may include herniated cervical discs which put painful pressure on cervical nerve tissue.
- Age-related spinal problems - As you age, so does your neck and its components. This is particularly true of the discs, which may flatten out as they lose moisture. This flattening causes the spine to lose height, straining the facet joints and possibly causing arthritis. Shifting of the vertebral alignment can alter the curve of your neck and cause nerve compression.
- Repetitive strain - If your chosen occupation or sport causes you to bend or twist your neck in a constant or repetitive manner, you may develop painful soft tissue strain and inflammation. Keeping your head dropped forward to consult your mobile device can lead to a painful condition called "text neck." Even a slight imbalance in the weight distribution of your head on your neck can cause strain.
Chiropractic Adjustment & Other Natural Neck Pain Therapies
Bartkus Chiropractic Center can provide neck pain treatment without resorting to invasive surgical procedures or potentially addictive drugs. Our chiropractor, Dr. Charles Bartkus, can examine your neck and develop a customized treatment plan. Chiropractic care addresses underlying musculoskeletal imbalances that may place your neck under constant strain or interfere with nerve function. Chiropractic adjustment normalizes vertebral and disc position to ease your symptoms the natural way. At the same time, you may benefit from corrective exercises and lifestyle adjustments to rehabilitate soft tissue damage, regain flexibility and reinforce a straight posture.
