Neck pain is one of the most common reasons that patients enter into our care. More often than not, a new patient will enter into the exam room and tell the chiropractor, “I don’t know what happened. I just woke up this morning and now I can’t move my neck”.
More often than not something happened during the night and the position of the neck was compromised for an extended period of time. Upon waking, the patient moves his or her head quickly (most likely to turn off the alarm) and the neck goes into spasm. Other times the patient gets up and moving, but the pain and stiffness worsen as they try to get ready.
If this has happened to you, then we recommend that you call our office immediately. Our chiropractors are very skilled at determining the root of the problem and developing a treatment plan to correct the pain and tightness as soon as possible.
There are many other reasons that you may be experiencing neck pain, but the bottom line is this: you should not be experiencing any neck pain. If you have been waiting a few days to see if the problem will “go away”, chances are it will not. Let our chiropractors help you to feel better.
