Suffering From Neck Pain In Grapevine?
Neck pain can make even the simplest of movements involving the neck, head, arms, shoulders, and back excruciatingly difficult. It can lead to headaches and difficulty using your body. Immobility resulting from neck pain can cause the muscles to become weak and to degenerate over time. Understanding the root of your neck pain is a necessary step towards acquiring the treatment that will be effective in both short and long-term recovery.

Although the neck is a relatively small area of the body, it is comprised of some complicated structures which do the important job of holding your head up. The small size of the vertebrae of the neck allows for a lot of mobility, but can also make the neck more vulnerable to injury and pain. Some of the causes of neck pain include:
Trauma, such as whiplash
Abnormalities in the bone structure
Muscle strains and pulls
When muscles in the neck go into spasm, the spine gets pulled out of alignment. When the spine is misaligned, the nerves become irritated and cause further tension and other systemic problems. Because every nerve in the body has its root in the spinal column, issues that have their source at the neck can have a major impact throughout every other system.
Many people let neck problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough the pain will simply go away. In some cases it will go away, but if you past two weeks then your body is not likely going to fix itself. If the problem is not corrected it can become much more serious. Some patients let things go to the point where surgery may be the only option.
Conventional vs. Holistic Treatments
Most commonly, people try to deal with their neck pain using prescription or over-the-counter medications. This may help to relieve the symptoms in the short-term, but not only are patients dealing with side effects, the underlying issue goes unaddressed. Massage Therapy has been proven to be an effective way of relieving this pain as well as correcting muscle dysfunction.
I do feel the need to advise you that while Massage Therapy can relieve pain of the muscles in the neck, If the issue is in the bones or joints, you would instead need a Chiropractor. We work hand and hand with a local Chiropractor who specializes in neck alignment and dysfunction. Together we have been able to restore hope in many peoples lives.
