Chiropractic Neck Pain Care in Lancaster
It's common to occasionally experience a stiff, achy, or sore neck. But when your neck pain becomes so intense or disruptive that you struggle to sleep, work, or perform routine daily tasks, it's time to seek professional care. At Lancaster Chiropractic Life Center, we can help you avoid getting to this level of pain and dysfunction thanks to our insightful and proactive chiropractic care services.
Types of Neck Pain (Plus Common Causes and Symptoms)
Neck pain diagnoses include muscle strains and spasms, cervical stenosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging discs, whiplash, nerve compression (radiculopathy), and osteoarthritis. Depending on the underlying cause and contributing factors to your specific condition, you may notice symptoms such as:
- • Pain
- • Numbness or tingling in an arm
- • Shoulder pain and stiffness
- • Decreased rotation or movement in the neck
- • Headaches
- • Ringing in the ears
- • Jaw pain
These symptoms may get better over time, but if the underlying cause of your condition isn't addressed, you could face recurring or chronic problems.
Who Gets Neck Pain?
Neck pain can occur in people of all ages, from children to seniors. It's often the result of acute trauma, such as a fall, sporting incident, or car crash. Neck pain can also develop due to poor posture, spinal alignment issues (such as scoliosis), and even improper mechanics while carrying or lifting heavy objects like backpacks. Our patients find that neck pain also tends to get worse during times of heightened emotional or physical stress.
