Neck Pain Relief from Our Comstock Park and Grand Rapids Chiropractor
Neck pain may make you incapable of doing your job, sleeping, concentrating or enjoying everyday activities. Here at Gorbach Family Chiropractic, our Comstock Park and Grand Rapids chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Gorbach, can relieve that pain and stiffness so you can reclaim your quality of life.
Painful Neck? Here's Why
That painful neck of yours could have any of a variety of causes, not all of them obvious. Ideally, your cervical spine maintains a gentle curve to help support the weight of your skull, with the aid of several muscle groups and connective tissues. But if your head has less than a perfect vertical alignment, muscles on one side or the other may be overworked, leading to chronic strain. You may even be creating such imbalances yourself by allowing your head to hang forward as you check your smartphone or use a too-low computer monitor -- an acquired condition known as "text neck." Degenerative conditions such as age-related bulging discs, osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis can also sneak up on your neck, creating chronic pain and stiffness.
Other causes of neck pain leave no doubt as to their origins. Whiplash is one of the most well-known (and dreaded) examples. A severe jolt to the body can throw the head backward and forward rapidly enough to injure the neck's soft tissues, dislocate vertebral joints and even alter the curve of your neck. Additionally, discs may herniate and compress cervical nerve roots, causing not only neck pain but referred pain and other symptoms in the upper extremities.
