Back and neck pain is one of the most common reasons to visit a chiropractor. This pain can come from many different causes from sports injuries, muscle strains, accidents, and even prolonged sitting at a desk. Receiving a spinal adjustment will better the movement of your spine and give you more range of motion. By adjusting your spine your surrounding muscles may also experience an increase in their overall movement as well.
Every now and then it is normal to wake up with a stiff neck from sleeping on it wrong, however, it is important to recognize when that neck pain is more than that and needs to be seen by a professional.
Not only does your neck support the entire weight of your head, but it also gives you the ability and flexibility to move your head wherever you want to look. Unfortunately, this flexibility can make it more likely that you can suffer from neck pain and even injury.
Common Causes Of Neck Pain
- Sitting for long periods of time
- Poor posture
- Pinched Nerve
- Neck Strain
- Chronic muscle conditions, like Fibromyalgia
The good news is chiropractic care can help improve the overall function of your neck by allowing you to move how you are supposed to. A chiropractic adjustment can help reduce the pain, soreness and stiffness you may be experiencing. Many people respond well to adjustments and can usually get back to their normal daily activities faster than if they don’t see a chiropractor and just try to treat the pain using pain medication.
When your spine is out of alignment, you can experience trouble moving, pain or even nerve issues. A misaligned spine can also lead to unnecessary muscle tension, which can only continue to pull your spine out of its correct alignment. At some point in their life, up to 80% of people will experience a form of back pain. What many don’t realize is this back pain doesn’t have to become a permanent, chronic issue.
Regular chiropractic care to treat back pain can not only treat the pain a person is experiencing but can also be a good source of preventing any further back pain.

As you continue to live your daily life and perform some frequent tasks that might aggravate your back, chiropractic care can help keep your muscles loose.
