Neck Pain


 

Is a very common condition.  There are countless people that deal with neck pain daily and never see a doctor about it.  Physical therapists and chiropractors have been helping people deal with neck pain for years with great results. 

Neck pain can make even the simplest of movements involving the neck, head, arms, shoulders, and back excruciatingly difficult. Neck problems can lead to headaches, upper body discomfort and sore muscles.. Immobility resulting from neck pain can cause the muscles to become weak and to degenerate over time.

Although the neck is a relatively small area of the body, it is comprised of some complicated structures which do the important job of holding your head up. The small size of the vertebrae of the neck allows for a lot of mobility, but can also make the neck more vulnerable to injury and pain. Some of the causes of neck pain include:

  • Trauma, such as whiplash
  • Sleeping position
  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive stress
  • Abnormalities in the bone structure
  • Joint issues
  • Muscle strains and pulls

These symptoms can be caused by poor posture, repetitive motion or impact, causing  the misalignment of the spine. When muscles in the neck go into spasm, the spine gets pulled out of alignment. When the spine is misaligned, the nerves can become irritated and cause further tension and cause the attached muscles to tighten and spasm. Your muscles tighten in response to misaligned vertebrae in attempt to stabilize the spine.

Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough the pain will simply go away. In some cases it will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is usually still there. Over time, that area can become aggravated, and the pain can return. If the problem is not corrected it can become much more serious. Some patients let things go to the point where surgery may be the only option. The longer an individual waits to get their condition corrected, the more difficult it could be to correct or there may be a greater chance the issue can potentially become very serious. Be proactive and get your spine checked out.

 

Here at Achieve Wellness Medical Center, our medical team will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to decrease pain, improve motion and strength. The overall goal would be to restore your normal function.

Most people with neck pain in the Columbia area are searching for all-natural, less-invasive treatment options. But do you want the risk of becoming dependent upon these treatments or risk the side effects? Or, what if your neck pain problems can’t be solved with surgery? Or a medication that you may need to take more and more of to handle the pain but never actually solve the problem?

We’re dedicated to patients who feel out of options, and that’s why we offer an array of treatments for chronic neck pain, including regenerative treatments and enriched plasma.

Enriched plasma treatments involve taking your own blood, removing other elements of the blood that aren’t essential to our purposes, and injecting the concentrated platelets and plasma into your injured joint or soft tissue. Your blood contains many substances that your body naturally produces to help you heal—platelets, growth factors, and cytokines. We use enriched plasma to deliver a much-needed dose of these healing factors at the site of your knee pain.
