You are not alone if you have been dealing with neck pain in Ca. Millions of people suffer from neck pain, never getting the care they need. For a hundred years, chiropractors have been helping people find relief from chronic neck pain. Our chiropractors in the Campbell, San Jose and Los Gatos area are specifically trained to help treat neck pain and have very high success rates. Here is more about what our team at Smith Family Chiropractic can do to help you.
Because your neck is responsible for constantly supporting and moving your head (which can be about 14-16 pounds), it often can get injured. The spinal cords in the vertebrae send nerve impulses to all areas of the body. These large bundles of nerves will run down your arms and upper back. So unfortunately, if your arm is hurting, it could be directly correlated to a problem in the neck. Some common symptoms in the arms are numbness, tingling, coldness, and achiness. Most common neck pain is caused by poor posture, stress, disc problems, and chiropractic subluxations. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or pain, call us so we can help alleviate the pain.
Chiropractic care is a non-surgical treatment option designed to help patients reduce their neck pain and any related symptoms. Our neck is also called the cervical spine. It begins at the base of our skull and has seven small vertebrae. This is what supports the weight of our heads! Our neck can move our head in many directions, which is amazing but also makes it susceptible to pain and injury. Chiropractors at Smith Family Chiropractic can help treat neck pain caused by:
A neck adjustment works to improve joint mobility in the neck, which restores range of motion and reduces muscle spasms. This helps relieve pressure and tension. Patients usually notice a decrease in pain, discomfort, and stiffness, along with an improved ability to move the neck. According to the American Chiropractic Association, neck adjustments is a remarkably safe procedure.
A stiff neck is commonly triggered by the pinching of facet joints, which are small pain-sensitive spinal joints that can trigger pain in the neck and back of the shoulder. This also comes with muscle spasms and headaches. The manipulative force is then administered to the patient through the facet joint without rotating the patient’s neck. Prompt treatment can prevent prolonged suffering. Your chiropractic treatment plan will depend on your particular situation. Patients experiencing neck pain due to car accidents, sports injuries, or arthritis may need continued care, while patients who have neck pain from posture issues or a pinched nerve may only need temporary care.
