How many of you have woken up with neck pain, or after a long day of work felt pain shooting down the neck causing arm pain or even headaches? Have you ever had a car accident that resulted in neck pain? I would bet almost every one reading this has had neck pain at one time or another. The question is where to get the best neck pain relief.
Well it’s very important not to ignore the pain! Pain is the last symptom to show up when you have a problem. Many think it will just go away on its own. Or others will just pop a pill which just masks the symptoms.. oh and don’t forget the load of side effects!
An important thing to realize, pain is just like a cavity… you can have one without knowing it and when the pain is finally there and you call the dentist, that cavity has progressed so far that the decay is so bad you need that much more work. And we all know the more work you need the more expensive it is. The last thing you want the dentist to do is just give you a pill or inject it with Novocaine. You want the dentist to fix the cavity or it will keep getting worse.
If you treat your neck pain the same by waiting or just going to the doctor and getting pain medications or muscle relaxers, you might get temporary relief, but the underlying cause will keep getting worse. Ever notice when you have pain return months or years down later, it is usually worse each time? It can even start spreading down into the shoulders, arms and hands. The joints and bones also will decay more quickly which will restrict your normal daily activities.
This is why it’s so important to have a qualified doctor to examine and find the cause of the neck pain. The only doctor that specializes in the spine and finding the cause of your neck pain is a chiropractor. You do not only get neck pain relief, but you also get the problem corrected. Most chiropractors will also give you guidance on how to prevent neck pain in the future.
