If you refer to a truly annoying, frustrating person or situation as a "pain in the neck," then your feelings about genuine neck pain are all too clear. You're not alone in your discomfort; up to 45 percent of the American workforce suffers from neck pain, for instance. But how can you alleviate this condition without having to endure major surgery or become dependent on painkillers? The solutions you seek are available from our Duluth, MN chiropractic team at Kenwood Chiropractic.
Acute vs. Chronic Neck Pain
Neck pain may be associated with an acute problem, or it may be the end result of a chronic condition. Not all acute neck pain makes itself known, immediately, however; in the case of a traumatic auto accident, for example, you may be so "up" on adrenalin that the muscle damage, vertebral dislocation or nerve impingement caused by whiplash doesn’t hit you with pain until days after the crash. (That's why you should always get your neck checked out by your chiropractor near Duluth after any type of accident.) As for chronic neck pain, it may occur due to:
- Repetitive motion strain or chronic overuse, as experienced by athletes or workers who must make stressful neck motions over and over
- Degenerative spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis or cervical osteoarthritis
- Bulging or herniated discs that press on the spinal cord and/or cervical nerve roots
- Poor posture or pain-inducing habits such as "text neck"
