NECK CONDITIONS

Osteoarthritis

The most common cause of neck and back pain is arthritis, specifically osteoarthritis. This degenerative condition destroys the cartilage that cushions and protects joints, leading to swelling and discomfort. Osteoarthritis can develop with age or due to trauma, and genetic factors may also increase the risk of this disease.

Pinched Nerve

Your body’s extensive network of nerves originates in the brain and spinal cord, transmitting information throughout. Neck pain may signal a pinched or compressed nerve. Regardless of the severity or duration of the injury, the pain should not be ignored. Addressing the issue promptly will provide quicker relief from neck discomfort.

Disc Disease – Herniation or Bulge

Disc issues are commonly referred to as bulging, slipping, or herniated discs, but these terms describe different problems. A bulging disc occurs when the disc’s soft interior dries out, often due to aging, causing the material to be compressed and forced out, straining the spine’s nerves. A herniated disc happens when this soft material pushes through a tear in the disc.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition causing widespread body pain. Unlike arthritis, fibromyalgia does not inflame or destroy joints but causes pain in soft tissues. The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, but it is linked to severe events, genetics, and autoimmune diseases. While there is no cure, painkillers, medications, and exercise can help manage the symptoms.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spaces within the spine, putting pressure on the spinal nerves. This condition can occur anywhere along the spinal column but is most common in the neck or lower back. Symptoms include neck pain, tingling, numbness, weakness, and loss of hand function. Medical treatments, tailored to the severity of the condition, may be required.

Muscle Strain or Poor Posture

Daily activities and workout routines can strain your muscles. Poor posture, such as hunching over a workbench, slumping at your desk, or staring at a computer screen for extended periods, stresses the neck. Invasive procedures are rarely necessary for these injuries. Most mild muscle strains resolve on their own with time, over-the-counter painkillers, ice, and improved posture. Maintaining proper posture can help prevent neck pain and discomfort in your shoulders and neck.

Are there risks or pain associated with spinal manipulation?

Risks associated with chiropractic manipulation include temporary discomfort, headaches, and fatigue. More severe risks include herniated disks, strokes, and pinched nerves. However, these risks are rare. Chiropractic manipulation is generally considered a safe treatment option.

How Often Do I Need To See A Chiropractor For Back And Neck Pain?

The number of times you need chiropractic treatment for neck and back pain depends on your specialist’s recommendations. In instances where you experience more severe symptoms, you will need to visit a chiropractor 3 to 4 times a week. Meanwhile, you may need weekly treatments if your problem is not bad.

What Should I Expect at My First Visit to a Chiropractor?

You will need to provide your health history during your first chiropractic appointment. You will then need to explain any current pain or discomfort in detail.

The physiotherapist will then perform a physical examination.

If they believe you could benefit from chiropractic adjustments, they will likely perform a series of tests. These will check your reflexes, muscle strength, and range of motion.
These tests will help them to determine which areas of your spine are out of alignment and need adjustments. The chiropractor can also tell you how severe the misalignment is and treatment options to correct it.

From there, chiropractors will devise a treatment plan. This will likely include a chiropractic adjustment, at-home exercises you can perform, and other treatments you can try. Like applying ice or heat to your back and neck.

How Do I Prepare for an Appointment With a Chiropractor?

Besides gathering your medical information (e.g., family medical history), you do not need any prior preparation for your appointment.

You may want to dress in loose-fitting clothing. Doing so will make you feel more comfortable during your appointment.
