Dr. James Lee, Your Chiropractor in Queens Answers Your Questions about Neck Pain
Neck pain can be a difficult condition to treat because our necks are supporting our heads and really never get the opportunity to rest. Chiropractor James Lee answers your most frequent questions:
How Does Neck Pain Happen?
There are many different causes of neck pain, from poor posture to work-related injuries. Whiplash and other trauma from auto accidents are also quite common. If you text or look at your device a lot this can also be a contributing factor.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Me?
At Dr. Lee's Spine Center we can ensure that your neck and spine are properly aligned which relieves pressure on your discs and the muscles and joints that support the neck and spine. Misalignment can cause inflammation which is one of the most common causes of neck pain.
Is There Anything I Can Do at Home for Pain Relief?
We recommend targeted stretches, such as neck rolls that help to relieve built up pressure in the neck. A heating pad or ice pack can also be effective, but remember to only use them for 20 minutes at a time.
What is "Text Neck"?
Text neck occurs when you are constantly looking downward to text or use your device. This causes your neck muscles to stretch in a way that they were not designed to do, as excessive texting can lead to torn ligaments.
How Does Poor Posture Affect Neck Pain?
Poor posture places additional stress and strain on the neck that can lead to more serious issues.
I Am Overweight, Is This Affecting My Neck Pain?
Maintaining the proper weight level can improve all aspects of your health and wellness and is something that we strongly recommend.
Can Exercise Help?
Yes, regular exercise should be a part of your regular routine.
