Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is more prevalent than ever before. One recent study showed that neck pain affects upwards of 40% of all of America’s labor force, with females experiencing this type of pain more often than males. One reason neck pain is on the rise in the United States is due to increasing numbers of people sitting in front of computers and using handheld digital devices for several hours every day. Another very important factor in these recent statistics is that Americans’ collective lifestyle is getting more sedentary. In fact, when surveyed, the majority of participants said they spend more than two hours per day either sitting at a computer or hovering over a cell phone, tablet, or other device. Another significant reason for the increase in neck pain sufferers in the U.S. is the heavy backpacks or brief cases many of us carry to work or school these days. Following is further information from spinal surgeons in New Jersey designed to help those suffering from neck pain understand the common causes of their pain, as well as learn of the treatment options available to them.

Is Joint Manipulation Safe?

The question as to whether chiropractic adjustments are safe has been asked many times over the years. The truth is that millions of patients have benefited from chiropractic adjustments, reporting to their chiropractors that their pain is relieved and their lives have been bettered. In fact, many chiropractic patients swear by their chiropractic adjustments, and yet the question still remains … is joint manipulation safe? According to the website of the Mayo Clinic, “Chiropractic adjustment is safe when it is performed by someone trained and licensed to deliver chiropractic care.” The fact is that no medical treatment comes with zero risk; however, joint manipulations that are performed by chiropractors in New Jersey have an excellent track record for safety and effectiveness.
