Neck pain can drastically affect mobility and ease of movement throughout the body. Moving the head, raising the arms and even sitting comfortably can become difficult. Strain in the neck can also cause migraine and headaches that can worsen over time. See how Dr. David Baggaley can address your neck pain in Spanish Fork, Utah, and bring you relief.
Neck Pain in Spanish Fork
The small, complicated structures within your neck move and hold up your head. However, when they are injured or compressed, they can severely limit mobility. Some common causes of neck injuries are:
- Chronic stress
- Poor sleeping position
- Poor posture
- Whiplash or trauma
- Problems within the joints
- Vertebrae abnormalities
- Muscle strain
Many of these problems can be caused or influenced by misalignment. As the muscles spasm, the spine and vertebrae can be shifted out of proper alignment. Improper alignment can then cause further irritation and pain. Treating these problems early on can help prevent the need for more aggressive procedures and surgeries later on. If you suffer from neck or back pain, call (801) 504-6125 and find relief at Back on Track Family Chiropractic.
Conventional vs. Holistic Treatments
Many people try to treat their neck pain by taking over-the-counter or prescription medications. However, this only addresses the pain, not the cause, of their discomfort. Massages can also relieve some of the pain and tension in the muscles but not any misalignment or joint issues. Our chiropractor can address the underlying issue by gently realigning the spine and neck. Learn more about our holistic approach to neck pain and make an appointment with us today!
