A person may wake up one morning with neck pain that causes them to wonder what he might have done to cause it. Did you sleep in the wrong position? Did you lift something the day before that is making it hurt now? There can be a number of reasons for neck pain. Let's examine a few activities that may be contributing to it.
Repetitive movement of the neck or one drawn-out movement can cause a person to strain his neck. This comes from overusing or overstretching the neck ligaments, causing what is referred to as a sprain. This may also cause muscle spasms of the neck. How do these come about? The following activities can contribute to this.
If a person does their best to try to avoid these activities, he will have a much better chance of waking up without neck pain. So, what can a person do if they are already dealing with neck pain?
A good place to begin is to make an appointment with an upper cervical chiropractor. We have had much success in relieving our patients with neck pain. It has been proven that a misalignment in the upper part of the neck of only ¼ of a millimeter can cause a multitude of problems throughout the body. It could be the cause of a patient's neck pain. Once we correct this misalignment, a person may be free of neck pain long-term.
