3 Reasons to Visit a Chiropractor for Neck Pain
Almost all Americans have suffered from neck pain at one time or another. It is a common complaint in society today and also a top reason why many people turn to chiropractic care. A gentle adjustment from a Rochester Hills chiropractor can bring about neck pain relief, but chiropractic care has a lot more to offer as well. There are a variety of reasons to consider chiropractic care, especially for neck pain.
Remove Spinal Misalignments
The root cause of most neck pain is found in the spine. Spinal misalignments cause nerve interference that affects how the body communicates. It also leads to pain and malfunction. When the spine is misaligned, the muscles on either side of the misaligned vertebra are forced to stretch or compress accordingly, bringing about pain. Rochester Hills chiropractors Dr. Thomas Madigan and Dr. Brendan Shanahan can adjust the spine to remove spinal misalignments and address neck tightness or pain.
Many individuals work in a job that involves sitting at a desk and staring at a computer all day. For others, looking down at phones or tablets has become a part of their everyday routine. Both of these things can affect our posture, and in turn, our neck. This type of neck pain is known as “tech neck” or “text neck.” Forward head posture associated with straining your neck forward to look at computers or other technological devices causes stress and strain on your muscles, especially in your neck, leading to your head being farther forward than it should be. For every inch your neck moves forward, it adds up to 10 pounds of pressure to the neck to try and keep it from dropping down to the chest. Dr. Madigan and Dr. Shanahan of Vitality Precision Chiropractic can correct forward head posture to alleviate frequent neck pain so you can perform at your best all day long for many years to come.
Feel Better Overall
While many people first visit a chiropractor for back or neck pain, what they don’t realize is that they are also improving their overall health as well. Chiropractic care allows the central nervous system, composed of the brain and spinal cord, to properly communicate with the rest of the body for optimal health and wellness. When your body is functioning at high levels of health, you can look and feel your best each day. Not only can it decrease pain, but it can also improve your immune system, digestion, or a variety of other health issues. Many people have experienced improved quality of life with consistent chiropractic care, and you can too. If you are tired of living with neck pain, then now is the perfect time to contact Dr. Madigan and Dr. Shanahan and their team at Vitality Precision Chiropractic in Rochester Hills.
