Many patients come to sports rehab facility seeking a solution for their neck pain. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that about 45 percent of today’s workers are suffering from some type of neck pain. As such a widespread condition, neck pain is often ignored. However, it is important to note that some of the conditions associated with neck pain or chronic neck pain are serious, often requiring some sort of treatment to fix. It is therefore imperative for those experiencing neck pains to seek a chiropractor to assess the severity of the pain.
The following conditions are most commonly linked to neck pain:
- Cervical Disc Herniation
- Pinched Nerves
- Upper Crossed Syndrome
Treatments for neck pain range so significantly that those who neglect to see a doctor may be setting themselves for a future of intense pain. While some neck pain may be treated with a simple ice pack and pain-relieving drug. Other types of neck pain may require therapy, exercise, and chiropractic care. The use of traditional chiropractic has been known to be largely effective in treating neck pain.
In addition to treatment methods, the manner in which treatment is given will also differ dependent on the severity of the injury. For instance, outpatient treatment is by and far the most common technique to address neck pain. However, older individuals may require inpatient care. As such, all of those experiencing neck pains must seek the care of a doctor immediately in order to prevent further damage and establish a treatment plan.
