Suffering From Neck Pain in La Crosse?
Almost everyone will experience neck or back pain at some point in their lifetime. Whether from an injury, a strenuous job with repetitive movements, a desk job with constant sitting, chronic stress, or you just woke up with it, it all stems from the same thing: your spine. When you have a subluxation/misalignment in the neck or back, it causes dysfunction of the nerves in that area and imbalance in the muscles surrounding that joint. Chiropractic adjustments in La Crosse will correct the misalignment and restore function in the body, relieving your neck and back pain. Because of the spines intimate relation with the Nervous System, misalignments can show up as many other symptoms besides pain. In fact, pain is usually one of the last symptoms to show up. You may want to see a chiropractor if you have headaches, vertigo, ear infections, sinus problems, carpal tunnel, acid reflux, trouble sleeping, constipation or diarrhea, irregular or painful menstrual cycles, or tingling in the arms or legs. This is a short list that exhibits how much the alignment of your spine affects. If you are having neck or back pain, the chiropractors at Barge Berkley Chiropractic Clinics will help you get out of pain and also improve the function of your body.
Neck Pain Relief in La Crosse
Although the neck is a relatively small area of the body, it is comprised of some complicated structures which do the important job of holding your head up. The neck is one of the most important areas in the body, where the brain and spinal column connect. A misalignment in the neck can disrupt function in all parts of the body. The small size of the vertebrae of the neck allows for a lot of mobility, but can also make the neck more vulnerable to injury and pain. Some of the sources of neck pain include:
- Trauma, such as whiplash
- Sleeping position
- Poor posture
- Repetitive stress
- Abnormalities in the bone structure
- Joint issues or degeneration
- Muscle strains and pulls
Most of these issues are either caused by, or impact, the alignment of the spine. When the spine is misaligned, the nerves become irritated and cause tension or imbalance in the surrounding muscles and other systemic problems. Because every nerve in the body has its root in the spinal column, issues that have their source at the neck can have a major impact throughout every other system.
Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected in La Crosse and Holmen. They hope that if they wait long enough the pain will simply go away. In some cases it will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is usually still there. Over time, that area can become aggravated, and the pain can return. If the problem is not corrected it can become much more serious and lead to chronic health problems.
Conventional vs. Holistic Treatments
Most commonly, people try to deal with their neck pain using prescription or over-the-counter medications. This may help to relieve the symptoms in the short-term, but not only are patients dealing with side effects, the underlying issue goes unaddressed. Massage Therapy has become more popular over the years and this can help to relieve some muscle tightness. If the issue is in the bones or joints, the problem will remain.
Chiropractic treatment is a holistic practice that addresses the structural cause that leads to the majority of neck pain. Following a thorough chiropractic assessment aimed at ruling out other issues and finding the exact source of the problem, a personalized care plan is developed. Gentle adjustments to the spine can bring instant relief and restore long term health to the neck and the entire body.
