It's probably the most common complaint I see as a chiropractor in downtown Toronto.
Neck pain can not only be painful, it can lead to headaches, migraines and even radiating pain down the shoulders and arms. If you're reading this, it's likely because you have neck pain and are looking for a chiropractor in downtown Toronto to help you out.
Then you have come to the right place.
There are several different causes of neck pain that I see at our chiropractic clinic. The least common type of neck pain I see is from a whiplash accident. Neck pain from a whiplash is typically caused from a motor vehicle accident where your body comes to an stop but your neck whips back and forth like a bull whip. Patients that come into our chiropractic clinic in downtown Toronto recover excellently from a whiplash injury. Always remember, if you do a have a whiplash injury, it is very smart to take an x-ray of your neck before beginning treatment to rule out any possible fractures.
Another cause of neck pain can be from a sports injury or from working out. This is most commonly a soft tissue injury where the patient has done something that has caused the muscles in the neck to strain and often spasm. This is more often an acute injury and patients recover much more quickly. At our chiropractic clinic in downtown Toronto we have excellent results in correcting injuries to the neck from sports related injuries.
Overwhelmingly, the most common cause of neck pain I see as a chiropractor in downtown Toronto is from lifestyle. How does lifestyle cause neck pain? It's from chronic repetitive straining of the spine and associated muscles. You basically do something bad to yourself each and every day over a long period of time - sometimes months or even years. Being in downtown Toronto, guess where this comes from? You guessed it, sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours a day and then 6 hours a day on your cell phone. The posture that you sit or stand in for both these activities tends to be terrible. Terrible posture over long periods of time leads to terrible spines.
Ok, so that's great, now I know what caused it, what is the best way to fix it Dr. Matt?
