Stop Living With Neck Pain!
Get Neck Pain Relief from a Virginia Beach Chiropractor
In most cases neck pain or stiff necks are minor and commonly caused by something you did. For example, keeping your head in an awkward position for too long can cause the joints in your neck to lock causing the neck muscles to become painfully fatigued.
How Do You Get Neck Pain Relief in the Virginia Beach area?
You have probably had those bad days where your neck hurt and a few days later it was gone. If you wake up one morning and your neck hurts, it is not time to panic (unless you were involved in a collision to the head, like a car accident), because in most situations the problem will go away.
Try to think back and pin point what may have caused the pain in your neck, so you can avoid that activity again, or take measures to avoid it next time you do something.
A Few Common Head Positions that cause Neck Stiffness or Pain:
- Sleeping with a poor pillow or bad positioning of your head
- Watching TV for hours
- Sitting in front of your computer for long periods of time
- Reading a book
- Talking on the phone
- A long trip – airplane, car, train
- A strange bed – hotel, camping, etc…
In most cases, these minor, bad positioning-induced neck pain situations clear up on their own after rest and elimination of the situation that caused it in the first place.
