Neck Pain

Neck Pain Causes and Treatment

Doctor Davis will evaluate your spine as a whole because other regions of the neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and low back (lumbar) may be affected as well. Along with treating the spine as a whole, Doctor Davis treats the “whole person,” not just your specific symptoms. Chiropractic care is a nonsurgical treatment option that may help reduce your neck pain and related symptoms.
 Listed below are some of the different types of neck (cervical) conditions that Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) treat:

-Cervical herniated disc. 
-Cervical stenosis, which is caused by a herniated disc or degenerative joint, can cause pain to radiate down the arm, and lead to shooting pain and coordination problems in the arms and legs.
-Muscle strain degeneration of the facet joint cartilage.
-Osteoarthritis of weight-bearing joints, such as hips and knees. A sprain of the muscles, ligaments, or tendons in the neck area usually causes acute neck pain. 
-Vehicular accidents,
repeated carrying of heavy items (such as luggage), or awkward sleeping positions are often the culprits. 
Foraminal stenosis, a condition caused by degenerative changes in the neck joints, involves a herniated disc or a pinched nerve. This in turn causes chronic neck pain.
***One common symptom of chronic neck pain is an ache that radiates down the arm, sometimes into the hands and fingers, accompanied by numbness or tingling***.
