If you think you’re the only one experiencing neck pain, you would be wrong. Neck pain is very common, so many others are in the same situation. Likely, as many as 60% to 70% of all Boynton residents will eventually have some neck pain requiring attention.

Your cervical spine consists of muscles, joints, and bones. The spine has two major functions. First the spine is part of our skeleton and needs to hold us upright. The second function and even more important is to protect spinal nerves and the spinal cord itself. The spinal cord and nerves help transmit electrical signals between the brain and the body/organs. Any time the cervical spine becomes misaligned, it can exert undue pressure on all the muscles and joints, ultimately causing some degree of pain and discomfort. But it can also affect the spinal cord and nerves. Frequently this can lead to symptoms including numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers, or weakness in the hand (grip strength). These are common symptoms of nerves being irritated by abnormal spine alignment.

Neck pain can be caused by many different underlying problems. Many medical doctors may dismiss the pain and prescribe painkillers or muscle relaxers. These merely hide the symptoms and ignore the underlying cause of the pain. Some health care providers recommend other forms of treatment without ever learning the true cause of the pain. Again, these treatments may only be hiding the symptoms temporarily.

If you had an injury recently or in the past, there was likely damage to specific tissues in the neck. For example, the following tissues can be damaged from injuries:

  • Tendons,
  • Ligaments,
  • Discs,
  • Muscles,
  • Nerves,
  • Spinal cord,
  • Bones

Your alignment may have been changed from the trauma and is now stuck in an abnormal position. The first job of any good doctor is to find the cause of the problem and see if it is something that can be fixed. At our Boynton corrective chiropractic office, Dr. Haasseem will perform a thorough history and exam to learn about the problem before taking Xrays which can show us the actual problem.

The following are signs and symptoms of an underlying cervical spine problem:

  • Neck pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Pain radiating into the shoulders, arms or hands
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, hands or fingers
  • Weakness in the arms or hands
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty concentrating

Dr. Haasseem will develop a treatment plan to alleviate any pressure or misalignment you may be experiencing as soon as we identify the cause of the symptoms in the list above. In most cases, we will design specific postural exercises, spinal traction, and spinal adjustments as part of the overall corrective program.

Should you schedule an examination for neck pain?

If your neck pain is frequent or persistent

You might be wondering when you should contact us and arrange for a neck examination. One of the first guidelines you should use is when your neck pain does not go away after several days because this indicates that there is an underlying problem that is not resolving. Another time to contact us right away is if you are getting pain in the neck with motion ,like turning or bending your head/neck.

When you’re using painkillers and over-the-counter medications just to get through another day, that’s a sign that your pain is well beyond the threshold where treatment is recommended. If you have any worries whatsoever that your neck pain might be a symptom of some significant disease or issue, by all means, contact us. Be on the lookout for any numbness or tingling that you feel in your hands and fingers because when coupled with your neck pain, these can be signs of something more serious affecting the nerves as they exit the spine in the neck region.

Another time when you should be sure and reach out to us at the Boynton chiropractic center is if your neck pain started after a car accident. This can cause severe injury to the spine and needs immediate evaluation. Contact us at our Boynton area corrective chiropractic office and we will get you in the office right away.
