Neck pain can stem from a wide variety of sources, including the natural aging process, repetitive stresses on the cervical vertebrae (the seven vertebrae in your neck) and injuries. It’s important to remember that the average head weighs about 12 pounds, and the neck has to carry that weight aloft day-in, day-out. For those who suffer from chronic neck pain in North York and other Canadian cities, chiropractic treatment may prove to be a conservative way to address the problem and its symptoms.
In many cases, chiropractic treatment may be a gateway to avoiding surgery on the neck. This is important for patients who want to avoid surgical procedures as often as they can. In general, avoidance of the necessity of surgery begins with early intervention. The following are common neck pain signals that indicate a trip to a chiropractor is due for diagnosis of the underlying issue, and chiropractic treatment solutions:
• Dull aches in the neck or head.
• Chronic migraines.
• Tingling or “electric” sensations in the shoulders, possibly running down the length of the arm.
• Pain upon rotating the head up and down, or left to right.
• Numbness in the neck or shoulders.
• A strained sensation in the neck, upper back or shoulders.
Over time, the symptoms will not go away, and will likely worsen without some kind of intervention. By allowing a North York chiropractor such as Dr. Gorchynski treat the root problem of the symptoms using the activator method, you may quickly find relief from your condition.
Even if you have been previously told that you absolutely need neck surgery to address your neck pain, we encourage you to make an appointment at the Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic. Second opinions may provide you with new options that you didn’t realize were available.
