Neck Pain Due To Strain & Sprain in Portland

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain in Portland OR

Neck pain in Portland refers to the physical discomfort in and around the neck and shoulder area.

This type of pain can be from a variety of different reasons like:

  • Injuries
  • Certain disorders, like arthritis or diabetes.
  • Age
  • Posture

The neck is the part of the body that has sacrificed stability and protection for motion and flexibility means that the neck is particularly vulnerable to injuries and damage.

These injuries also include neck pain caused by strain and sprains.

Strain refers to when one or more fibers of the muscles/ tendons stretch and tear, also called pulled muscle or tendon.

A sprain refers to the overstretching or tearing of ligaments.

The symptoms of neck strain or sprain involve:

  1. Stiffness of the neck
  2. Pain radiating from the neck to the shoulders and lower back
  3. Headaches
  4. Muscle spasms
  5. Ringing in the ears
  6. Weakness or tingling in the neck area
  7. inflammation/ swelling

Causes for neck pain due to neck strain or sprain can be caused by:

  • Whiplash
  • Occupation with prolonged neck extension (working on the monitor or regular phone calls, etc)
  • Posture
  • Sleeping postures
  • Improper blood circulation
  • Over working
  • Sudden stretching after very little stretching

While it is not within our capacity to control our situation and surroundings leading to our neck pain, it is within our control what we do to get the neck pain treated.

Everyone turns to medications, balms, sprays, essential oils, etc. immediately at the feeling of the slightest bodily discomfort.

While this might work for some people if their issue isn’t too deep and their body can heal super quickly and on its own, that is well and good.

But for most of the American population, the constant coddling by the pharmaceutical companies has made bodily healing very slow, which makes people turn to medications, which further slows bodily healing.

So, what exactly does one do? It is a busy world and everyone needs quick, effective remedies and pain relief to get back to their busy lives. It is also a very expensive world, and usual “solutions” are a whole lot more affordable than most treatments, which are slow to be effective.

This is where chiropractic comes in.
