The structural part of the neck is called the cervical spine. It has seven bones (vertebrae) that sit one on top of the other, each separated by a disc. The neck also houses over 20 neck muscles. These muscles and other soft tissues support the head (averaging 11 pounds for a human adult). The area offers an impressive range of motion and considerable flexibility and is essential to our everyday movement patterns.
When the neck is functioning well, we can easily turn our heads from side to side and up and down- a process used thousands of times a day for most of us. When the neck is injured, even the most insignificant process, such as turning your head while driving, can have dire consequences.
Finding safe, effective care for a neck at risk is a necessary precaution. Chiropractic solutions are a tremendous resource for this. Our Helena chiropractor, Dr. Bridge, wants your neck pain to stop for good, so we’ll give you the tools to strengthen your neck, and discuss proper posture, screen time, workstation solutions, and more, so you can keep your neck healthy well into the future.
Using an array of non-invasive, corrective therapies and soft tissue solutions, we can deliver results that will help you live life in comfort.
Why Do I Have Neck Pain?
Because we depend on our necks for so many movements, it bears a lot of burdens that can lead to damage. Pain severity ranges, but even minor discomfort can spark a reason for concern, as, without the necessary service, the discomfort could grow.
Our chiropractic care can find the abnormality and alleviate your neck pain at the source.
Some common neck injuries we can help with include:
- Herniated discs
- Disc degeneration
- A sprained or strained ligament or muscle
- Spinal stenosis
- Nerve irritation or pinched nerve
- And more
Our team works with all ages, abilities, and injuries, so if you’re suffering from neck pain, we’d like to help you, too. Have an old, chronic neck injury that you think is untreatable? We’re up for it. Contact our clinic today.
Why Patients Come to Us to Treat Their Neck Pain
The neck’s full range of motion is a luxury often taken for granted. No one knows that better than someone who has a debilitated neck. Everyday activities may be out of reach; work may be impossible, sleep may be compromised. All of these things can cause emotional, mental, and financial hardships.
The effective solutions we offer in our chiropractic clinic are proven and natural. We know you need to get back to your life, and we’ll help make it happen with efficiency.
Some reasons you may be experiencing neck pain include:
- Poor workstation setup
- Poor posture
- Using a handheld device for extended periods
- Overuse injury
- Poor habitual movement patterns
- Improper lifting
- Sport or exercise-related injury
- Auto accident
- Slip and fall injury
- Improper sleep positions
- Improper sitting positions
And, let’s not forget the prospect of an aggressive sneeze or misguided step. Even the most innocent movement can cause a problem when not done correctly.
When you feel signs of neck discomfort or have lost the natural ease of motion, the neck’s integrity may be in jeopardy. There’s no good reason not to seek chiropractic help. Why wait until it worsens?
We help people suffering from various neck-related complaints, including:
- Inability to turn head without pain
- Stabbing, throbbing, or shooting neck pain
- A stiff neck
- Tightness of neck muscles
- Neck pain that radiates into the shoulders
- Dull neck pain that worsens when turning head
- Loss of range of motion or flexibility
- And more
These pains can be found in active and inactive patients; our treatments will benefit both. Neck pain is not something that should be taken lightly or left to heal on its own; let’s get you fixed up so you can get back to doing the things you enjoy most.
