Every day, people bear the burden of chronic and acute neck pain – pain that interferes greatly with how they live their daily lives. There are a multitude of causes of neck and arm pain, including repetitive stress, accidents, poor posture and tension in our muscles. The tightness in your neck muscles can eventually lead to reoccurring headaches.
Arthritis can also be the source of discomfort in your neck. Arthritis is a degenerative condition involving friction and stress between your joints. Some causes are more easily treated than others; those who suffer from a neck injury from a serious accident may require more extensive treatment.
The neck and arms are vital parts of our anatomy and consulting with a doctor about any pain is imperative. Often, such pain can be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as a herniated disc in your spine or an injury to a nerve that needs to be addressed. Chiropractic adjustments can help you deal with the pain, relieve tension, and mitigate the stress your body endures.
