Neck Pain, Chiropractic Care And YOU!


Most people might have a neck pain these days or at some point but not a lot of them really understand neck pain. What some may find surprising is that it’s not just because you’re tired. Most often than not, there’s more behind it and the pain is just the symptom.

Causes Of Neck Pain


  • Being In One Position For Too Long
If you slump all day on the couch, sit all day at your desk job, or are doing any activity that makes you be in one position for extended period of time, you’ll experience stiffness and/or muscle spasms in the neck area which leads to pain.

  • Jobs That Involve Repetitive Motion
If there are jobs that require a person to be in a stagnant position, there are those that entail repetitive motion like those who operate a drill press or practically anyone whose job is in power equipment or continuous assembly line operation. Those kinds of jobs tend to bring muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck.

  • Strain To The Cervical Vertebrae
This happens when there’s a forceful movement of the neck. Whiplash, which is a rapid back and forth movement of the neck, during a car accident is often the cause of this.  

  • Degenerative Disease Of The Bones And Joints
Or wear and tear, as most of us would call it which can be the result of a lifetime physical trauma or poor posture.


Ways To Prevent Neck Pain

Sometimes being aware of how you do specific everyday things and adjusting them for your comfort helps.
  1. Do not sleep on your stomach
  2. Set up a supportive sleeping area
  3. Don’t watch television or read while lying down
  4. Find ways to disturb sitting or whatever activity that makes you bend your neck
  5.  Avoid carrying heavy purses or bags in one shoulder

Chiropractic Care

When the pain doesn’t go away, despite the changes you’ve done in your daily routine and habits, the next logical step would be to consult a professional. Instead of relying on pain killers that only numbs the pain but doesn’t really treat the condition, seeking a chiropractor can help detect the real cause of the pain, provide comprehensive treatment that fits your specific condition, and prevent the pain from coming back.  The chiropractor can also give recommendation on nutrition and exercises that will help improve your condition.

Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

What To Expect: 3 Stages Of Chiropractic Care

Unlike pain killers, which are what people often resort to when they experience pain or ache in the body, chiropractic care isn’t a temporary remedy. Like any other treatment, chiropractic care is a process which may or may not take time to see the result depending on your condition. But the good thing with a comprehensive treatment like this is that it provides you long term solution instead of just a quick relief that is most likely going to wear off after a couple of hours.
1. Relief The primary concern of people seeking a chiropractor in Singapore is the chronic pain that they’re in. What the chiropractor does at this point is lessen the symptoms and prioritize on relieving the pain of the patient.
