Whether subtle or intense, neck pain has the ability to make your days longer and nights shorter. It can darken your mood, dampen your spirit, and cause you to live a life without luster. That is, unless you make it a point to see your Athens chiropractor and do something about it.
Many things can bring about pain in your neck, which is the cervical area of your spine. Being involved in an auto accident can leave you with whiplash, as will any sort of trauma to that area of your body. Sports injuries can cause neck pain as well, leaving you tender and sore.
Having poor posture can also increase your neck pain because your spine isn’t positioned in a way to adequately support your head. This can lead to headaches and dizziness, which can further diminish your quality of life.
If you carry stress and tension in your upper body it can strain the muscles in your neck, leaving you with aches and pain that extend from your shoulders to the top of your head. If it is bad enough, it can even pull the cervical vertebrae and discs out of place, making the issue even more painful and harder to correct.
Luckily, regular visits with your Athens chiropractor can help sideline all of these causes of neck pain (as well as several others) and get you back to living your life and engaging in the activities you enjoy most. Through spinal manipulation, Dr. Hitchcock is able to ease the pain that you are feeling and get you on the road to recovery.
He uses a remedy called Active Release Technique (ART) if your injury is sports related and his Spinal Rejuvenation Therapy will help you regain your flexibility and range of motion, no matter what the cause of your neck pain.
