Natural Neck Pain Relief | Chiropractor for Neck Pain in Lubbock, TX
Hey, how’s it going? It’s Dr. Greg Marin here at 1-Spine Chiropractic. With our neck pain discussion today, we want to give you some information about the neck and natural neck pain relief.
Our Women Patient’s Neck Pain
So our neck supports the full weight of our head, which is about 12 pounds. So we want to make sure that neck is in a good position that doesn’t cause a lot of stress and strain on that neck. The second thing is women are one and a half times more likely to be effected than men with neck pain. For women we see that neck pain causes a lot of tension headaches here for patients in our office. Please give our office a call, 30% of neck pain that is left untreated will lead to chronic issues.
Lifestyle Choices Related to Neck Pain
So we want to make sure you get that neck pain evaluated early to get the relief you need. One thing that we discuss in our office regularly is lifestyle issues. You know, things like poor posture, using your tablet, poor sleeping positions and bad biomechanics all can lead to neck pain, tension and headaches. So we’ve got to make sure we get things evaluated to reach some relief.
Range of Motion & Chronic Issues
Another thing that can cause neck pain is an acute injury, say like a car wreck or a fall, but a lot of times we see chronic injuries that someone has been dealing with. These are usually three to six months injuries that gets left untreated and they will cause chronic issues and chronic pain. Another thing is lack of motion. That’s the number one cause of Subluxations. Whenever we have a bone that Subluxated, that means that bone is stuck, so we’re not getting that proper motion. So with time, when that bone is stuck, it causes some wear and tear in that joint it can lead to arthritis later on in life, or bone spurs and whatnot. So we got to make sure we get that bone moving properly early to prevent all that wear and tear that’s going to happen.
Muscles, Ligaments, & Tendons
Otherwise, muscles, ligaments and tendons are another issues that cause neck pain. We want to make sure during our Neurological testing and Orthopedic testing, that we’re evaluating each aspect of what comprises the neck to give it what it needs. Whether it be laser therapy, rehab, spinal decompression, spinal adjustments, we’re here to evaluate that and give you the natural neck pain relief you need.
