Neck Pain in Wilmington

It is impossible to help an individual with neck pain if your not sure of the location of the problem. Wilmington chiropractors are trained in the use of a variety of diagnostic tools which give them the ability to locate the source of neck pain. This comes as a great advantage when treating this condition.

The spine is one of the most complex areas of your body, with almost every systemic nerve running through it. Muscles connected to a region of the spine that is misaligned can spasm and tighten. This tightening is believed to be a defense mechanism of the body to protect the spine and spinal cord. Bad posture and repetitive motions with a bad posture are the most common cause of misalignments that can happen in the spine.

Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough their neck pain will just go away. In a lot of cases it probably will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is still there. Over time that area will often become aggravated again, and the pain will return. Over time without correction the problem can become much more serious. Some patients get to the point were surgery may be the only option.


Common vs. Normal

If you have neck pain don't fall into the common vs. normal trap. The trap insinuates that because so many people have neck pain it must be normal. Neck pain is very common, but it is certainly not normal. This type of reasoning is why we see so many people with problems that can no longer be corrected. You don't have to become a statistic of neck pain. Take control of the problem before it's too late.

The first time you're in our office we will begin with your health history. Our Doctor needs to understand your condition before he can properly help you. Our hope is that your recovery will be speedy and quick.


Causes of Neck Pain
There are many different causes of neck pain. But if you are a neck pain sufferer, you know it’s no fun at all. Therefore, pinpointing the reason your neck hurts is the first step in helping you get fast relief.

Some of the more common causes are muscle strain/sprain and degeneration. Less common in the cervical spine is disc herniation and severe degeneration. Muscle strains and joint sprains tend to irritate nerves in the neck which can cause tingling or burning pain referred into the neck or shoulders and occasionally down into the arms and fingers as well as short term multi-directional loss of range of motion due to muscle spasm. Herniation and severe degeneration of the cervical spine tends to cause weakness, numbness, and decreased reflexes into the extremities as well as sharp pain and long term loss of range of motion.


Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain
Depending on the cause of your issue, there are many different chiropractic treatment options that are safe and effective. A few natural options offered at our office include: sactive release soft tissue therapy, spinal manipulation, specific exercises, co-management, referral or a combination of all if these if needed to get you feeling better.

We have had tremendous success in helping people with chronic and acute neck pain no matter how long it has been an issue.
