Ending Neck & Shoulder Pain
Does it hurt to turn your head? Or to raise your arm? Neck and shoulder pain limits important mobility tasks.
More Americans are experiencing neck and shoulder problems than ever before. Often the pain radiates from the neck and shoulder to other regions in the body. How can you stop neck and shoulder pain?
Shoulder & Neck Pain Fast Facts
Your neck contains seven small vertebrae built to support the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds.
Approximately two-thirds of people involved in car accidents develop symptoms of whiplash.
Shoulder pain isn't necessarily coming from the shoulder: the pain can be caused by neck problems, or issues with the lungs, heart, liver, or gallbladder.
Bandana Chiropractic Identifies the Cause of Your Neck & Shoulder Pain
Injury, stress, poor posture, sleep position: all can play a role in neck & shoulder pain.
Any number of things can create misalignment in your spine and cause pain: extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. And those misalignments in your cervical spine (neck) and in the lumbar spine (back) result in painful nerve irritation.
The good news is that you can do something for your neck & shoulder pain; but, even better, you can begin to address the root cause of that pain and restore health to your body.
It starts with an assessment of your condition. We check your posture and range of motion, noting movement that causes pain. In our initial exam, we also examine your spinal curvature and alignment, and feel for muscle spasm. We also will take an x-ray at the Bandana clinic during your appointment to identify any narrowed disc space, fractures, bone spurs, or arthritis.
