Neck Pain Causes | Healthworks Chiropractic | C-Spine Dysfunction
There’s a lot of reasons that we see at healthworks chiropractic for neck pain causes and I want to talk to you about a specific one today and that’s nerve related pain. You know neck pain causes a lot of discomfort. And you know sometimes if a nerve is entrapped this can really hinder you know your everyday function you know muscle spasms in the back or commonly accompanied by pinching nerves and can be quite painful sometimes nerves can be pinched only symptoms may be numbness and weakness in the arm or leg without any pain you know. Other symptoms include tingling or that burning sensation you know electric or hot such cold sensation you know and if for example you know neck pain causes you know inflammation or pressure on nerve roots of the spine it may cause neck or even sometimes we’ve seen low back pain as well as like side nerve pain it may also cause pain to radiate from the neck into the shoulders in the arm and cervical ridiculous apathy. You know for an example if a disc weakens or tears you know this specifically can be very very painful and is known as a herniated disc and pressure can be put on the spinal nerve you know compression on a nerve can lead to a lot of things where neck pain causes you know severe severe pain in that cervical ridicule that the company called a pinch nerve occurs when a nerve in the cervical spine or neck is compressed or irritated where it branches away from the spinal cord.
And this may cause pain that radiates into the shoulder as well as muscle weakness and numbness that travels down the arm and into the hand and cervical ridiculus apathy is often caused by wear and tear changes that occur in the spine as we age such as things like arthritis. And you know neck pain causes a lot of pain and discomfort when a nerve is pinched sometimes in younger people though it’s often caused by a sudden injury from a sport that results in a herniated disc or a slipping of the disc and neck pain causes a lot of different symptoms and symptoms can lead to more problems later on in life. And you know in most cases server surgical raid that killed up to be responsible to conservative treatment and that includes medication and physical therapy. You know the anatomy of the cervical spine or neck. You know we know that our er spine is 24 bones called vertebrae that are stacked on top of one another and these bones connect to create a compound that actually protects the spinal cord. And you know the seven small vertebrae that begin at the base of your skull and they form the neck. They’re called the cervical spine and cervical ridiculus apathy occurs in the cervical spine on the ascendant small vertebrae that form the cervical area of your spine the neck you know other parts of your spine include the spinal cord and actually the nerves and you know neck pain causes a lot of discomfort if these nerves are impinged and these electrical cables travel through the spinal canal carrying messages between your brain and your muscles and nerve roots branch out from the spinal cord through openings in their vertebrae called form.
And you know Verd bur vertebral deaths in between your vertebrae are flexible and are vertebral discs and they they act as a shock absorber when you walk or if you moron there’s movement at the top portion of your body. Interviewer rural discs are flat and round in about half an inch thick and they make up. They’re made up of about two components and these are specifically in the cervical spine. And if you’re dealing with you know neck pain and you’re looking for neck pain causes you know sometimes we need to know the anatomy and what’s going on in our body for it to be beneficial for us. And the annulus fibrosis this is that tough flexible outer range of the disc the annulus and the Nicholas Paul posts and that’s a soft jelly like center of the disc. And you know sometimes if these that kind of nucleus of the disk slips out and there’s an annular tear misting compress on a spinal nerve especially if it’s an anterior problem you can really press on those nerves and lead to this or a ridiculous apathy down the arm. And you know there’s several different causes of why this may happen not only in just a herniated disc there’s a lot of neck pain causes that can give you some trouble and supercool ridiculous apathy it’s going to arise. Most of the time from degenerative changes that are occurring a spine as we age or you know an injury that causes a herniated disc or disc sometimes bulges out on empresses on that Mirman interfer very. Into a very real disc can be very very debilitating neck pain causes. You know this stuff to to almost get worse and the degenerative changes as we age.
Spine is actually hiked and begins to Bolger and they also lose water content and begin to dry out and they become stiffer. And what this does is it causes subtlely or it collapses the disc in the spaces a loss of height and this height. You know as the disc loses that height you know the vertebrae or cervical spine move closer and closer together creating that degenerative changes in the body responds to the collapse this by forming more bone. And these are these are called bone spurs around the disc to strengthen it in these bone spurs contribute to stiffening the spine and they may also narrow that form into that opening on each side of your spinal column and where the nerve root access is going up pinched off that nerve and create that cervical ridicule apathy and that’s very very debilitating. And if that happens you know neck pain causes stiffness numbness tingling down the neck and into the hands of the arms and you know degenerative changes in these discs are often called arthritis or Spagnolo says major changes are normal and they occur and everyone in fact nearly half of people middle aged and older have more on desk and pinched nerves that do not cause painful symptoms and it’s not known why some people develop symptoms and others do not.
