What Causes Neck Pain?
There are many reasons people suffer from neck pain. The most common reason is overuse of the muscles in the neck and back region. Repeated or prolonged use can create a misalignment of the spine and generate pain through the nervous body. At Leigh Brain & Spine we use a variety of diagnostic tools to determine the source of the pain. Once we know what the true cause is we can go to work providing the solution. Our comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plans are why we see amazing success in our patients’ outcomes.
The spine is one of the most complex areas of your body, with almost every nerve in your system running through it. Muscles connected to a region of the spine that is misaligned can spasm and tighten. This tightening is believed to be a defense mechanism of the body to protect the spine and spinal cord from injury. Bad posture and repetitive motions with a bad posture are the most common cause of misalignments that happen in the spine.
Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough their pain will just go away. In many cases it does go away temporarily, but the misalignment that is causing the problem is still there. Over time that area can become aggravated, and the pain will return. Over time without correction the problem can become much more serious. Some patients get to the point where surgery feels like the only option. Leigh Brain & Spine uses the most advanced, state-of-the-art techniques and strategies to help people avoid surgery or a lifetime of pain.
