Neck pain is one of the most common complaints in the United States. Neck pain stems from a variety of conditions including poor posture, either from sitting at a desk or hunching of over a work station, cell phone, or tablet, or injuries from car accidents, sports, or slip-and-fall accidents. Abnormalities in the joints, osteoarthritis and other degenerative diseases, and muscle strain can also contribute to neck pain.
One of the main factors that contribute to neck pain is the constant use of cell phones and tablets. As a patient spends hours every day with their head tilted down, looking at a cell phone, the weight of the head puts considerable strain on the neck that can lead to misalignment, strained muscles, and a significant amount of pain. If you experience any shooting pain, numbness or loss of strength in your arms with neck pain you should make an appointment with Dr. Campo immediately.
When patients make appointments with Dr. Campo at Park Slope Chiropractic to address neck pain, he performs a comprehensive consultation before beginning treatment. He’ll ask questions about the patient’s medical history as well as current habits and lifestyle details that may contribute to the pain. Dr. Campo guides the patient through a series of movement to test their range of motion and to determine if any other parts of the body are affected. He’ll also measure any tenderness, numbness, and muscle weakness, gathering feedback from the patient on how different movements and positions feel. If necessary, Dr. Campo orders diagnostic imaging services including X-rays, MRIs, and CT scan to gather more information about the condition causing the neck pain.
