Suffering From Neck Pain in Charleston SC?

Chiropractor Charleston SC Greg Grochowski With Patient

Like back pain, neck pain in Charleston SC can make every task in life miserable. The anatomy of the neck is complicated and fragile. It is a system in our bodies that is sensitive to correct movement and position. If the spine is not moving or positioned correctly (Chiropractors refer to this as Subluxation) pain and stiffness will occur. If left uncorrected it can also lead to disc arthritis and herniation which may cause pain down a person’s arms. Our goal will be to find out the exact cause of the pain. Secondly, we will make a plan to correct the problem that is safe and gentle. This pain might be new to you, but we have years of experience treating it safely and effectively.

Neck Pain in Charleston SC

It is impossible to help an individual with neck pain if you not sure of the location of the problem. Charleston SC chiropractors are trained in the use of a variety of diagnostic tools which give them the ability to locate the source of neck pain. This comes as a great advantage when treating this condition.

The spine is one of the most complex areas of your body, with almost every systemic nerve running through it. Muscles connected to a region of the spine that is misaligned can spasm and tighten. This tightening is believed to be a defense mechanism of the body to protect the spine and spinal cord. Bad posture and repetitive motions with a bad posture are the most common cause of misalignments that can happen in the spine.

Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough their neck pain will just go away. In a lot of cases it probably will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is still there. Over time that area will often become aggravated again, and the pain will return. Over time without correction, the problem can become much more serious. Some patients get to the point where surgery may be the only option.

Common vs. Normal

If you have neck pain don't fall into the common vs. normal trap. The trap insinuates that because so many people have neck pain it must be normal. Neck pain is very common, but it is certainly not normal. This type of reasoning is why we see so many people with problems that can no longer be corrected. You don't have to become a statistic of neck pain. Take control of the problem before it's too late.
