Nearly 7 out of 10 people will be bothered by debilitating and uncomfortable neck pain at some point in their lives. If you’re one of them, there’s a good chance that the pain will go away on its own. But even with diligent care, some symptoms will persist or return.
At Dynamic Health Carolinas, we pride ourselves on treating and relieving acute and chronic pain without the use of medication or invasive surgery. Let’s explore what your neck pain is telling you, as well as some holistic ways to get neck pain relief.
Your Neck Pain and How to Treat It
Acute Neck Pain
Typically, acute neck pain is caused by a muscle strain or another soft tissue sprain. These types of injuries can be attributed to a sudden traumatic force, like whiplash during a car accident or a strain from simply sleeping in the wrong position.
You could also have an aching or sore neck and shoulder muscles from overexertion or extended physical or emotional stress. The hard knots that develop are tender to the touch. If your neck is feeling tight or knotted, it could also be due to a muscle spasm.
Chronic Neck Pain
Chronic pain ranges in severity from mild to excruciating and lasts for longer than 3 months. It can be accompanied by arm pain, numbness, or tingling. Doctors often prescribe medication to combat the pain, but this only masks the causes and doesn’t treat the underlying issue.
If you’re suffering from chronic neck pain, the issue could be associated with facet joints, nerves, bones, or another area of your body altogether. At Dynamic Health Carolinas, we have the experience and multiple advanced technologies to properly diagnose and treat your frustrating chronic pain.
