How Do You Know When It’s Chronic Pain?
While many would try to dismiss the pain, a problem that has persisted for more than twelve weeks is considered chronic neck pain.
Without treatment, this problem can hurt your quality of life, even possibly contributing to depression and anxiety. Symptoms such as fever, light sensitivity, pain behind the eyes, and reduced muscle function can accompany neck pain—these signs could indicate a serious problem that needs attention immediately.
The problem with neck sprains and strains is that they produce less elastic "scar tissue" to replace your normal elastic tissue. This surgery has the potential to cause persistent pain and possibly arthritis in certain people. It's critical to seek care for your neck injuries as soon as possible, such as the sort we provide in our clinic. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may need to limit your activity for a while, especially if certain motions or activities cause you pain.
Avoid heavy lifting and take frequent pauses from long periods of activity, especially overhead exercise, if at all possible. You can try ice for 10-15 minutes every hour after an acute neck injury. In some cases of persistent pain, heat may be beneficial. Make careful to get specific ice/heat instructions from your doctor. Sports-creams have provided partial alleviation for some sufferers.
We recommend scheduling a visit with one of our chiropractors soon after you begin experiencing pain. We can perform an evaluation to determine the cause of your neck pain. If you’re struggling with poor neck mobility, stiffness, or pain to the touch, make an appointment with our chiropractic team. We will design a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs.
Neck pain isn't just inconvenient, it can put you at risk of further injury. We offer chiropractic treatment and massage therapy to anyone in the Kennewick and Pasco area.
