Dr. Jeffrey Eisman and our experienced staff are very pleased that you have chosen us to provide your Detroit chiropractic care. Here at Eisman Chiropractic Clinic, we treat car accident injury and personal injury patients regularly, and neck pain is one of the most common conditions that our patients struggle with. A pain in the neck may be accompanied by headaches, back pain, or other types of pain as well. Since pain in the neck area is something we treat so often, we are devoting the blog today to educate our readers on common causes of neck pain.
Our car accident injury patients are often diagnosed with whiplash. This is a whole collection of symptoms, of which neck pain is very often the first one recognized. When an auto accident occurs, the impact will cause an unnatural movement of the victim's neck. This generally means that neck will be snapped forward or back very sharply and rapidly. This lasts for only a few seconds, but the impact of this movement can last for a very long time if the whiplash is not recognized and treated correctly. Chiropractic care can be an enormous aid in returning the neck vertebrae and the muscles supporting them back into their proper state.
Cervical spine conditions are another possible cause of pain in the neck area. These conditions can include stenosis, cervical osteoarthritis, and cervical degenerative disc disease. Although there is not currently a cure for these conditions, chiropractic care can greatly lessen the pain such conditions cause. Also, chiropractic care can help to increase the mobility of the neck, since many patients who have neck pain will have trouble with moving the neck normally.
A headache such as a tension headache may be the cause of neck area pain. Sometimes you will know a tension headache is coming on due to those painful muscle spasms in the neck area. Chiropractic care is a great way to manage chronic headache problems. Regular adjustments can help reduce the regularity and intensity of headaches.
There is no doubt that pain in the neck is truly, well, a pain! We are here to help you recover from that pain and take back your life.
