If you wake up with a "crick" in your neck, the problem is probably due to sharp muscle contractions (spasms) caused by muscle strain. Pain in the neck may also be due to a "sprain" (due to a stretched ligament) or inflamed tendons (tendinitis). In all these cases, the application of cold can help numb initial acute pain and reduce inflammation. Restricted use of a neck collar may also help rest painful muscles and soft tissues, as well as ease discomfort. Once the acute pain subsides, a heating pad or a warm whirlpool may help further relieve symptoms. To avoid future problems, guided therapeutic exercise under the supervision of a physical therapist can prove most helpful.
A pain in the neck can affect your whole body and ruin your whole day. If you are dealing with regular pain in your neck, back, or shoulders, you need to see a good physical therapist. Our therapists will design a regimen of hands-on care that can relieve your pain and get you back into the swing of things. We can also suggest at-home exercises that can prevent the pain in the first place. If you would like to make an appointment at one of our three convenient locations, please call today.
Our Chiropractic office is located in Norwood and Framingham MA
