Neck and Back Pain

Neck and Back Pain Relief

Neck and back pain relief is why millions successfully consult chiropractors every day.

Chiropractors live and breathe the bones, muscles and nerves of the neck and back. That’s why they get such great results.

Relax, knowing that neck and back pain are common conditions that virtually everyone will experience at one time or another. Whether your neck and back pain is a mild annoyance or utterly debilitating, it isn’t normal.

The knee-jerk reaction is to reach for a bottle of pain relievers, either over-the-counter or prescription, to take the edge off and help you get through your day.

Careful! This approach dulls your mind along with the neck pain symptoms, while doing nothing about the underlying cause of the neck or back pain. A few hours later, it’s back to the bottle of pills for another dose of temporary relief. Until you have to increase to dosage.

Discover a natural solution that goes after the causes of neck and back, rather than just the symptoms?

Say Goodbye to Neck and Back Pain

Natural back and neck pain relief doesn’t come in a bottle. It comes with a quick phone call to one of our Choose Natural Chiropractors. Chiropractors are skilled at locating and reducing spinal issues caused by stress. When spinal misalignments are reduced with precise chiropractic adjustments, nerve irritation is reduced and your body no longer needs to cry out for relief.

If you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care, your chiropractor will conduct a thorough examination. This is designed to pinpoint the exact cause of your neck and back pain.

Naturally, chiropractors can’t promise a cure – because you’re doing the healing, not your chiropractor!

What Causes Neck and Back Pain?

Fortunately, most back and neck pain, especially cases involving tight muscles, is not caused by serious illness.

Instead, it’s often caused by nerve irritation in the area of the upper back and neck.

The nerves in the area may be irritated or inflamed by straining the neck and back muscles, which applies pressure to the nerves themselves.

Common culprits include working at a computer all day. Driving long distances. Over exertion. And a host of other everyday activities.

Another culprit of nerve irritation of the upper back and neck is bulging or degenerating discs.

The discs are “spacers” between spinal vertebrae. When the discs suffer from wear and tear, their insides may “bulge” outward, pressing on nearby nerves, or they may become too thin to provide the necessary cushion between vertebrae. Whenever nerves are inflamed or irritated, pain in the area served by those nerves can result.

Neck and Back Pain Causes: What Part Does Stress Play?

Most nervous system interference, such as those that result in upper back and neck pain, stem from stress. Your body can adapt, but there are limits. When those limits are reached the warning sign of back pain or neck pain may appear.

You probably think of stress as a feeling of overwhelm that accompanies an impossible deadline, family emergency or financial crisis. That’s emotional stress.

But there are other types:

Chemical stress is the stress placed on the body by pollution, unhealthy food, alcohol, tobacco – even pollen. Allergies are often signs of chemical stress.

Physical stress includes poor postural habits, insufficient sleep, too much or little exercise or repetitive motions. Often whiplash injuries are an overlooked source.

Ultimately, stress and the body’s reaction to it, affect the nervous system, leading to pain and dysfunction to broader areas of the body served by affected nerves.

While it may not be possible to live a totally stress-free life, thankfully it IS possible to find a natural solution to the problem of your neck and back pain!
