Wheaton Chiropractor – Neck Pain

Your neck is one of the most important pathways, connecting your brain to your nervous system, responsible for the proper functioning of the entire physical body. Vulnerable to injury, any type of neck pain should be addressed by a health care provider as soon as possible. Whether chronic neck pain is the result of injury, poor sleep habits or ongoing job related stress and strain, Action Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center in Wheaton offers licensed chiropractic care that relieves neck pain and restores mobility.

What is Causing my Neck Pain?

Overuse, Stress & Strain - Acute and chronic neck pain is often related to extra strain on spinal vertebrae brought about by excessive and consistent pressure. Repetitive movement including lifting and swinging while on the job or at play can irritate the muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves that surround the neck and connect to the spinal column. Rapid movement usually results in painful whiplash, a neck problem that is most commonly associated with car collisions and that leads to chronic pain and mobility problems. Other neck injuries may manifest as muscle fatigue and stiffness that alternates with muscle contractions due to injuries to discs, ligaments and tendons.

Neck Pain Caused by Degenerative Conditions - Degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are also at the root of chronic neck pain caused by tissue inflammation and the wear and tear of cartilage over time. Disc flexibility is comprised by these and other related conditions resulting in herniated discs can be effectively treated by the licensed chiropractors at our Wheaton clinic.
