Birmingham Chiropractor Answers Your Neck Pain FAQ

Since 1982, Gremmels Chiropractic Center, Inc. has treated thousands of patients, many of whom come to us because they are in search of neck pain relief. We welcome these patients with open arms because so many others accept neck pain and stress as part of everyday life. Still, others will simply medicate their pain away without seeking lasting neck pain treatment. Through the years we have heard similar questions regarding neck pain relief and how our neck pain doctor at Gremmels Chiropractic Center, Inc can help. Here is a compilation of those frequently asked questions.

neck pain

What are the common causes of neck pain?

Neck pain is often caused by lifestyle or trauma. Examples of trauma would be an automobile accident or sports injury. Lifestyle may include ergonomics at work, poor posture, lack of exercise or stress. If you've ever found yourself unconsciously moving your head side to side or rubbing your neck, you may have neck issues that should be addressed by a neck pain doctor at Gremmels Chiropractic Center.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is the name given to the straining of the neck. It occurs when the head moves suddenly and rapidly on the neck either back and forth or side to side. Symptoms range from mild discomfort to complete immobility of the neck area. Whiplash can also result in headaches, sleeplessness, and irritability. If you've been involved in an auto accident and experience even minor stiffness or discomfort in the neck, it is important you see a chiropractor for corrective neck pain treatment.

Why should we take neck pain seriously?

While we take it for granted, the neck is a critical part of the neuromuscular system. Not only does it carry oxygen and blood to the brain but our entire nervous system connects through the neck. It is certainly resilient, but care should be taken when we receive a neck injury. We should pay particular attention when we have neck pain and schedule a visit with a Birmingham, AL neck pain doctor.

Will my insurance cover my neck pain treatment?

Today, most major medical programs provide coverage for neck pain relief. If you have concerns about coverage, our staff at Gremmels Chiropractic Center is here to help.
