How To Prevent Common Neck Pain
Do you suffer from neck pain? Rest assured that you are not alone, a whopping 2/3 of adults experience neck pain at some point in their lives (Am Fam Phys 2004; 69:1275).
The intensity can range from mild to completely debilitating. Here at Robina Chiropractic Wellness Centre we care for many patients with neck pain, this is because the misaligned vertebrae (spinal bones) are a well known and the most common cause of neck pain.
Neck pain presents itself as either acute or chronic. Acute neck pain is often related to injury and is sudden and intense. Whiplash for example is one of the most common causes of acute neck injury. Many people are not aware that whiplash victims can experience the symptoms of whiplash at delayed times. Sometimes even month or years after the actual accident.
Regular chiropractic care can minimise the effects of whiplash by strengthening the immune system and promoting overall good health.
Chronic neck pain is usually characterised by tenderness and pain that is lasting more than 3 months. Repeatedly poor posture, such as at work in front of the computer can lead to chronic neck pain.
