Do you have a painful, stiff neck? Our staff at Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Burbank, CA, is happy to help you understand why your neck hurts and learn what you can do to find relief without drugs or surgery.
Causes and Risk Factors of Neck Pain
Neck pain is often caused by the cumulative effects of life — "wear and tear" — on tissues in the neck area that can lead to problems like degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and herniated or bulging discs. Neck pain can also be brought on by accidents (e.g., car crash or fall), poor posture, repetitive movement, sports injury, and even weak core musculature. These factors may lead to generalized, non-specific neck pain or diagnosable conditions like whiplash, muscle strains, or misalignments. Even stress and smoking have been linked to an increased risk of neck pain.
Common Symptoms Associated with Neck Pain
Depending on the underlying cause of your neck pain, you may experience additional symptoms like headaches, shoulder pain and stiffness, jaw pain, numbness or tingling in the arms and hands, impaired sleep, and even mood changes. Neck pain often feels dull or achy, but it can feel sharp with certain movements.
Why Seek Chiropractic Care in Burbank, CA, for Neck Pain
While chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions, neck pain is one of the most common reasons people seek out chiropractic care. We will assist you in the following ways:
- We'll help you understand the root causes of your pain by asking you questions about your personal and family history, observing your posture and movement, and performing a range of non-invasive examination tests.
- We'll customize a range of treatment techniques that not only relieve symptoms (often in as little as one session) but also improve the health and integrity of your cervical spine and reduce the risk of recurring or chronic neck pain problems.
- Top services include spinal adjustments, myofascial release therapy, corrective exercises, and stretches, and therapeutic electrical stimulation and ultrasound. Our services don't mask pain or provide only surface-level support. Instead, our techniques work with your body to help you get longer-lasting results in less time.
- We'll teach you safer, more efficient ways to move and offer practical lifestyle and dietary guidance so you can do your favorite activities without creating new symptoms.
