Is it hard to look over your shoulder? Is there a constant pulling or throbbing pain in your neck? Is it difficult to turn your head from side to side? If so, you are one of the many people suffering from chronic neck pain. Most people suffering from neck pain treat their painful symptoms by taking pain killers and other drugs to cover up the problem. This harmful method of treatment does not treat the underlying cause of neck pain. The painful symptoms associated with neck pain can be the result of many conditions, such as whiplash injury, forward head posture, frozen shoulder, pinched nerves, disc bulges, arthritis, degenerative disc disease and much more.
Another common problem that is related to neck pain, which many people suffer from is shoulder pain. The shoulder is the most movable joint and the most unstable joint in the body. Common problems include sprains, strains, dislocations, tendonitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs, fractures, and arthritis. The most common cause of shoulder and neck pain is damage to the soft tissue including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A thorough chiropractic examination can determine the cause of neck and shoulder pain that way an appropriate treatment plan can be implemented.
McNeil Chiropractic's approach to neck pain and shoulder pain is to locate the underlying cause and correct it by using specific chiropractic postural adjustments, postural traction and postural exercises. Dr. McNeil can determine if a spinal misalignment or improper spinal curve is the cause of neck and shoulder pain. Chiropractic adjustments, postural exercises, postural traction, and ice and heat therapy will help improve the motion, position, and function the spine. With improved structure and function, neck and shoulder pain often diminishes or disappears completely without the harmful side effects from addictive drugs.
