At Network Family Care Center, Dr. Marco Caravaggio serves patients who live in the communities of Toronto and Markham in Ontario, Canada. The doctor specializes in providing treatment for patients who are experiencing neck pain and discomfort.
Common causes of neck pain include accidental injuries, like those received in a car crash or a slip and fall accident. Neck pain can also be caused by health conditions like spinal stenosis, arthritis, and degenerative bone disease. Individuals who are constantly under high levels of stress can also be a victim of intense neck pain. If the neck is injured, the inflammation that builds along its column can impede blood flow to the brain, causing migraines and other types of headache pain. Learning relaxation techniques or receiving a chiropractic adjustment followed by a deep tissue massage is an effective way to relieve stress and minimize inflammation and pain in the neck area.
Stress can be extremely tough on the muscles of the neck. The neck is the sole supporter for the head and must constantly be in motion to allow the head to move in each direction. When a person is under extreme levels of stress, the muscles of the neck tighten. This results in inflammation that compresses on the tiny blood vessels that transport blood to and from the brain. When the blood supply to the brain begins to diminish, headaches and migraines can occur with increasing frequency. Chiropractic adjustments and deep tissue massage are just two ways to eliminate the inflammation and release the tension that is held in the muscles of the neck. Relieving the stress improves blood flow and lowers the risks of headaches.
Chiropractic care for the neck is extremely important, The neck provides the only support for the head, so any misalignment can cause severe pain and discomfort. With chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy, the neck is continually brought back into balance and the muscles provided with the additional support they need to remain strong and flexible. The more flexible the neck, the less likely it is to be injured. Chiropractic care and deep tissue massage ensure structural integrity and help to maintain the maximum range of motion and flexibility. If the neck is injured, both modalities work together to elicit a healing response that is both thorough and complete.
