Neck Problems Are Often Related to Daily Activities

A stiff neck can be caused by bending the neck downward to look at things too often or for too long of a time. The problematic posture is easily seen by looking at people who are texting. This same posture arises when you use a desk that has a keyboard that is far below the surface. Such desks are often touted as looking sleek or compact, but for people who look at the keys when they type, they are a nightmare for necks.

Any other daily activity that causes you to bend your neck into an unnatural position and leave it that way will also make your neck hurt, no matter which direction the neck is bent.

Car Accidents

Getting rear-ended in an auto accident may cause with whiplash from the force. Whiplash occurs when such a force is strong enough to cause your head to "whip" forwards and backwards. This causes strains and sprains in the neck and move vertebras out of place.

Treatments

Here at Nichols Chiropractic, we offer a variety of treatments for painful, stiff necks. One of these is the innovative iTracTM Therapy, which is designed specifically for what is professionally known as "forward head posture" – or what many people refer to as "text neck." It works to restore the proper cervical curvature to the upper spine, which reduces pressure on overburdened discs, vertebrae, and the muscles that support the neck. This relieves neck pain and can also help with pain in the surrounding areas.

For whiplash, we offer spinal adjustments and mobility-enhancing treatments. Both of these treatments help you heal – and become pain-free – faster.
