When you are experiencing chronic neck pain, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. For example, it’s difficult to turn your head to the side while driving or when sitting in a conference at work or school. In some cases, the pain can be so severe that you have to avoid driving cars and at night, you experience problems trying to lay down without pain as you move your neck.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

There are a number of causes of a stiff and painful neck. A common experience is a patient has neck damage from a car crash (you may have heard the term “whiplash” from auto accident reports). Or, a sports injury results in this painful condition.

Some office workers wind up with neck pain because they are sitting with bad posture in an uncomfortable condition all day long.

Whatever the cause of your case of neck pain, your chiropractor in Oak Lawn, IL has plenty of experience bringing relief to patients with this condition.

Help From a Talented Chiropractor for Your Aching Neck

If this is going to be your first time visiting a chiropractor, a bit of an introduction is in order. The chiropractor will take your medical history. Then it is time to talk about your neck pain and what you think the cause might be (for example, you already think it was caused by a recent accident or during an accident while playing sports over the weekend).

The chiropractor will want to know how long you spend looking at computer screens (to see if you are holding your neck in an awkward position leading to neck pain). Do you exercise? How often and what types of physical activity do you usually engage in? These are all helpful clues to diagnose the cause of your neck pain.

Treatment can include chiropractic massage techniques, designed to bring down inflammation. Cervical mobilization is another option, which involves a gentle figure-8 motion that has helped bring down painful sensations. The chiropractor may opt for cervical manual traction, which is done while you lay face up or while sitting, depending on your situation.
