Hey there. I was thinking about some of my patients today and I remembered something I wanted to tell you about neck pain.
Neck pain can stem from an endless list of causes.
For example, you might sleep in the wrong position, and wake up with a cramp in your neck; you might be involved in an auto accident, and experience discomfort characteristic of whiplash; or you may go dancing with friends, and experience a spasm that causes pain if you move a certain way.
These and many other circumstances can lead to neck-related pain. Most people will experience it sometime during their lives, though it will present in a lot of different ways.
The most common approach most people take to address the issue is to simply ignore the discomfort. It eventually dissipates to the point at which motion becomes less painful. Unfortunately, this fails to resolve the most common underlying problems: spinal misalignments and joint restrictions. Without addressing these root causes, the stage is set for a recurrence of pain in the future.
Pain is a symptom, but just because you don’t have PAIN, doesn’t mean the problem is gone. A lot of people have CANCER, but they don’t have PAIN until it’s too late. If you base your health on PAIN, and SYMPTOMS, you’re going to suffer later.
Whatever you do, don’t do that. Take your health seriously. Call my office today 734-677-0111…if you have any type of headaches, neck pain, limited range of motion, etc. DON’T WAIT!!
