Upper Cervical Pain
Chronic upper cervical pain can disrupt your work and daily life. Get relief from your pain by visiting a local chiropractor. Make an appointment to see our chiropractor in Omaha at Chiropractic Health Clinic to get the pain relief you need and deserve. Below is some information about upper cervical pain and what to do about it.
There are several reasons why upper cervical pain occurs. Common causes of upper cervical pain include career choices, posture, and injury. Discuss with your chiropractor what lifestyle changes you can implement to avoid this type of pain.
Symptoms of upper cervical pain include a stiff neck and neck pain. You may also feel numbness, weakness, or pain in your arm, shoulder or hand due to nerves in the area being pressed down. These nerves go through your spinal cord, affecting the parts mentioned above.
Upper cervical pain can be diagnosed by a qualified doctor, such as our chiropractor, Dr. Mark Eiler. Make sure to give your chiropractor a thorough history of your health so that he or she can correctly diagnose your pain. The more specific you are, the better they can diagnose and treat you.
Our chiropractor,will want to know when the pain started, how much pain you feel, and what is the cause of the pain getting better or worse. A neurological test may be recommended to test out the reflexes, sensation, and strength in other parts such as your hand or arm if they are affected. You may also need magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-rays, and computed tomography (CT) scans to further determine exactly where your pain is coming from.
Once our chiropractor discusses test results, he will want to discuss and plan out a treatment plant for you. Usually, one session is not enough, but a series of sessions can improve your pain diagnosis. He will then perform delicate neck and back adjustments to alleviate and eliminate your upper cervical pain.
