Neck/Shoulder Pain Q & A

What Causes Neck Pain?

Neck pain can be caused by numerous different factors. Usually overuse, repetitive motions, and sudden twisting play some sort of role. Even things as simple as using a computer and staring at the monitor repeatedly throughout each day can cause neck pain. The most common causes include:

  • Trauma

  • Muscle strain

  • Sprains

  • Degenerative diseases

  • Abnormalities in the joints or bones

  • Poor posture

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint and the range of movement is quite large. Joints that are used frequently and for a wide range of motions are more susceptible to injury. Shoulder pain can be caused by one or more of the following items:

What Treatments Are Used?

After an assessment from Dr. Chad has been conducted and it is determined that a fracture is not the cause of the pain, he can begin treatment. The most common method used to treat neck pain is called an adjustment, or cervical manipulation. This procedure uses precise motions and pressure on the joints of the neck. This can increase the movement of the adjoining muscles and most patients report improved mobility in the neck, reduction of soreness and pain, and stiffness. Dr. Chad will create a treatment program that may also combine more than one type of care, depending on your needs. In addition to manipulation, the treatment can also include decompression, Power Plate mobilization, rehabilitative traction, MLS Laser Therapy and exercises. If you are suffering from neck and/or shoulder pain, contact Advanced Corrective Chiropractic. Dr. Chad will work with you and your body to create a care plan and help you to get back to your daily routines and activities without discomfort.
