Problems and Solutions

For Neck Pain in Pineville, North Carolina

Acute injury- "Studies have shown whiplash injuries occur around 4.5 G-forces. A vigorous sneeze is recorded at 2.5 G-forces. A cervical spine injury can occur from an acute sports hit, concussion, or auto accident. Treatments such as soft tissue therapy and dry needling are shown to decrease pain, lower inflammation, and improve range of motion. 

Chronic sustained static postures- "When our bodies are held in a sustained posture the joints and soft tissues around the neck become tight and restricted. This often leads to pain and dysfunction throughout the day. Joint manipulation is a safe and effective method to restore joint function and improve tightness and restrictions. 

Spinal Canal Narrowing- "As we age the canal in our cervical spine, "where nerves exit", becomes naturally smaller. While this is a normal response to aging, it can cause pain and irritation to the neck. Manual therapy techniques such as traction have been shown to improve space and room for compressed nerves in the cervical spine.      

Common Questions and Answers

Neck Pain | Pineville, North Carolina

Q: What are the common causes of neck pain? A: Neck pain often stems from auto accidents and sports injuries. Less traumatic activities such as reaching, pushing, pulling, moving heavy objects, falls, bad posture, poor workstations, repetitive movements, prolonged overhead activity, sedentary lifestyles, improper sleep positions, poor bra support, and obesity can also trigger neck sprains and strains.

Q: What is the difference between neck sprains and strains? A: In neck injuries, a "sprain" refers to damage to ligaments holding bones together, while a "strain" involves partial tearing of muscles or tendons that move the neck.

Q: What are the symptoms of neck pain? A: Symptoms may include gradual or sudden dull neck pain, intensifying with head movement. Stiffness may occur with rest. Pain is often located in the back of the neck, extending to the shoulders or between shoulder blades. Tension headaches are common. Severe symptoms like unusual headaches, loss of consciousness, confusion, difficulty concentrating, and other neurological signs require immediate medical attention.

Q: Is my shoulder pain coming from my neck? A: Yes there is a strong likelihood that your shoulder pain is coming from your neck. A study called the EXPOSS Study (Extremity Pain of Spinal Source) found that 47% of shoulder pain is a referral from a problem at the neck.
