Chronic Neck Pain May Indicate Other Underlying Conditions
Jul 27, 2017

For people who suffer from chronic neck pain, our Atlanta Chiropractors can provide relief through a variety of techniques and treatment solutions. But, what happens when neck pain becomes a symptom of another condition? How do you know when something more serious may exist?

In most cases, neck pain derives from some muscle strain where one area of the neck feels tenser than others. However, when the pain is compounded by other symptoms, a complete Chiropractic examination may be necessary to detect and diagnose other possible underlying conditions.

Diagnosing Chronic Neck Pain

Consider the following information that highlights a few possible conditions that may be related to your neck pain and require immediate Chiropractic Treatment.

Chronic Neck Pain May Indicate The Existence of Meningitis

If you experience chronic neck pain, stiffness, and are often vomiting, it may indicate the presence of meningitis. If you are unable to tuck your chin into your chest without experiencing some level of dizziness, drowsiness, or confusion, you should schedule an immediate appointment with the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta.

Chronic Neck Pain May Indicate A Herniated Disc

People who experience neck pain along with weakness in their arms and numbness in their fingers may be suffering from a bulging or herniated disc.

Chronic Neck Pain May Indicate Whiplash Injury

If you were involved in a car accident, especially a rear-end collision, you may have sustained Whiplash without knowing. As surprising as that may sound, Whiplash does not always produce noticeable symptoms and can be confused with other conditions if you did not seek medical treatment following your accident. Recurring headaches, inflammation, stiffness, and neck pain are all associated with Whiplash Injury.

Our Chiropractors Can Diagnose and Treat Conditions That Cause Neck Pain

Many people will experience neck pain at some point in their lives. However, if your pain continues to persist for more than a few days, you may have other conditions that require immediate Chiropractic Treatment.

Our Atlanta Chiropractors are skilled at performing diagnostic tests that allow us to understand whether you are suffering from a minor issue or require extensive treatment. Following through with a complete examination gives you the best chance to identify and treat conditions that affect your ability to live pain-free.
