Your Neck Pain Solution
Hi, it’s Dr. Matthew Bortolussi, discussing neck pain, which I treat as a chiropractor at my Woodbridge clinic, providing neck pain relief to Vaughan. Neck pain most often involves nerves, joints and muscles. These are mechanical causes of neck pain that tend to increase or decrease if you move your head or neck around, or lying down versus being upright. Mechanical causes of neck pain usually need mechanical solutions.
What Causes Neck Pain?
A main cause of neck pain are vertebrae in the spine being misaligned and not moving correctly. This problem in your spine affects the nerves traveling out from these spinal levels. These nerves begin to transmit abnormal signals into the body, typically your neck, shoulders and arms. This combo of joint misalignment and nerve misfire is vertebral subluxation, and it prevents proper movement, cause muscle spasms, joint irritation, inflammation, and pain wherever that nerve travel. In some cases, these nerves travel down into your arm, causing pain, numbness, tingling, or even weakness in your hand. Many of these symptoms are misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome, and I’ve helped many people rid themselves of this frustrating diagnosis by paying attention to their neck instead of their wrist.
Chiropractic Can Help You!
Subluxations can be painful. Many cases of chronic neck pain are due to unaddressed subluxations, which often come with bad posture or repetitive stress. Chronic subluxations can cause the spine to wear out and decay, a problem known as arthritis. Subluxations rarely resolve on their own. They become bad habits of how your spine and nerves function, and cause chronic pain and permanent problems. Because a chiropractor is the only doctor to correct subluxations, chiropractic care with spinal adjustments is often the last thing patients need for their problem.
