Neck Pain Relief in Waterloo

woman working with neck painUndoubtedly, neck pain is one of the most common complaints we see at Dearborn Health. Considering how much time people spend at their workstations or on their digital devices at home, it’s no surprise that many suffer from neck pain.

We look for the signs and symptoms of neck pain, such as muscle tightness, inability to move your head, and headaches. Then, we give you multiple options to choose from, leading to a comfortable, effective solution for your neck problems.

What Are Some Common Causes?

Because your neck is flexible and supports the weight of your head, it can be susceptible to many injuries and conditions. Here are some of the most common causes of neck pain we see at our office in Waterloo:

Muscle strains. Sitting for hours hunched over a computer or even reading in bed—especially if you don’t have proper neck support—can strain neck muscles.

Degenerative Changes. As you age, your neck joints can experience wear and tear. Your body can develop bone spurs and decreased disc height that affect joint motion, resulting in pain.

Nerve compression. Herniated disks or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your neck can put pressure on the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord.

Injuries. Whiplash injuries, commonly caused by auto collisions, occur when the head is jerked backward and then forward, resulting in straining on the soft tissues of the neck.

Therapies for Neck Pain

Many of the same techniques that are applicable for headaches are helpful for neck pain, including chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and physiotherapy. In addition, our team will give you exercise programs to follow that rehabilitate and reset your body’s functioning.

We also recommend you adopt proper posture, avoid looking down at your smartphone or tablet, sleep in a proper position, and set up your office to be ergonomically friendly.
