Do you experience pain when holding your head in a specific position?
Do you have a limited range of motion in your neck?
Best Acupuncture Care sees patients every week for neck pain, and they come from a variety of places. Some people have experienced a fall or accident that resulted in whiplash. Others see me because they have neck strain from sleeping awkwardly or sitting in front of a computer for extended periods of time. Other people just have worn joints and may suffer from osteoarthritis or compressed nerves from a bone spur or herniated disk.
Your neck supports the weight of your head, and because of smaller neck vertebrae than those lower in the spine, is susceptible to injuries, some of which happen in day to day activity, or even in sleeping. If your symptoms are severe, it can limit your ability to work, get good sleep or even enjoy your day. Neck pain can lead to headaches and numbness or tingling into your arms. Any inflammations, injury or abnormalities can result in stiffness and neck pain.
When the neck moves in a range of motion that is irregular, the ligaments, muscles and tendon can become overstretched, and this is whiplash.
Whiplash is the most common neck injury. Car accidents are the first cause and yet whiplash can be caused by any impact that causes your head to jerk forward or backward. Sports injuries, such as being tackled in football, a kick in karate, falling from a bike or horse, or being hit in the head with a heavy object, can also lead to whiplash.
Neck Pain From an Awkward Position
Many people call this a pinched nerve or “crick in the neck” and they are right. Usually, a nerve has become irritated and it causing the pain. Repeated or prolonged movements of the head can cause these pains- such as looking up while painting a ceiling,
Sleeping in a different position, with a new pillow or sleeping surface, can also cause these temporary strains.
Chronic Neck Pain Lasting More Than a Few Months
Chronic neck pain is defined as long lasting and that has moments where it is worse than others. It can be caused by injuries or strains that weren’t treated. It could be a degeneration due to time or wear or a symptom of arthritis. It can be made worse by repetitive use of the shoulders and arms or when the head is in an unusual position for an extended period of time.
Many people who are experiencing neck (or any pain) that is made worse in colder or more damp days, could be suffering from arthritis. Best Acupuncture Clinic is a great solution to reducing the pain and inflammation of arthritis.
