Winnipeg Neck Pain Alleviated Naturally With Chiropractic

Pain in the neck? A lot of people think that a Winnipeg chiropractor can only help with pain lower down in the spine. The neck, however, experiences a lot of strain from carrying your heavy head around, and from sitting in one position.

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of things. Whiplash, which is strongly associated with car accidents, is caused in a sudden forced movement of the head in one direction and then another, causing muscle injuries and sometimes damage to the spine. (Whiplash is also seen in athletes who compete in contact sports, especially football). Degenerative disc disease, associated with lower back pain, can also occur in the neck.

A lot of neck pain is caused by poor posture and/or a bad sleeping position. A chiropractor can offer advice on your posture, which can reduce pain in the neck and referred pain into the arms. Techniques such as the Blair Upper Cervical that are specially designed to deal with neck pain issues are often employed, along with postural advice and stretches designed to strengthen the neck and restore range of motion. These adjustments are extremely gentle and many patients do not even feel them.

High quality evidence shows that chiropractic care is safe and effective for chronic neck pain and also that it is the most effective treatment for whiplash. If you are popping pills for neck pain or, worse, having to consider surgery – it is worth trying a chiropractor before going under the knife. They may be able to solve the problem with gentle, non-invasive techniques and reduce or eliminate dependency on medication.

If you have chronic or acute neck pain, consider contacting a quality chiropractor for a consultation. They will be able to look at your neck and upper back and establish a plan of care to restore mobility and relieve pain.
