3 Tips For Avoiding Neck Pain

3 Tips For Avoiding Neck Pain

3 Tips For Avoiding Neck Pain

  1. Stay connected to your posture. Most people develop neck pain because of bad posture. Check-in with yourself throughout the day. Are your shoulders back? Are you sticking your neck out to look at your computer? Have you been stuck at your computer for longer than an hour without getting up to move around? The more aware you are of your posture, the better chance you have to avoid neck pain. Added bonus: Pay attention to your posture when you are working/browsing/texting on your phone as well.
  2. Stretch what feels tight. If you feel your neck starting to tense up, do some neck stretches to help alleviate the tension. If you don’t get ahead of it, the tightness in the muscles will build and begin to cause changes that can lead to chronic, long-term changes to your spine and neck.
  3. See a Chiropractor! At my office in Chicago we have great success helping people not only feel better, but we also help prevent neck pain by addressing the underlying issues. We practice corrective chiropractic care here at Bourdage Chiropractic, which means that we are all about structure. When the body has proper structure it can function and feel it’s best!

Conclusion

Follow these 3 tips for avoiding neck pain and you will have a happier, healthier life. Give us a call at 773-545-9379 and let us help you get on the right track.

Neck Pain Chiropractor

Neck Pain Chiropractor

Everyone knows that chiropractors are great at helping relieve neck pain. In my office, people refer to me as the Neck Pain Chiropractor and I love that! There are great chiropractors all over Chicago, but if you are looking to correct your neck pain once and for all, this is your place.

We take motion study X-rays to accurately diagnose why you are having neck pain. Not only is it important to see the alignment and structure of your neck, we also need to see how/if your spine is moving the way that it should. Any areas of restriction or subluxation will interfere with how your neck is working and feeling. Not only does this lead to pain and stiffness, it can affect the function of organs and tissues. For example, neck subluxations can lead to headaches, allergies, TMJ issues, sinus problems and even thyroid troubles.

What You Should Do

If you are experiencing neck pain, and have not yet been to a neck pain chiropractor, then that should be your first step. Studies show that when you see a chiropractor first, the chances of you needing costly medications or surgeries are much lower compared to if you see a medical doctor first. Time is critical when dealing with neck pain. The sooner you are able to get it checked out, the sooner you will be able to start feeling better and get the problem corrected. Personally, I find that those who wait years and years and years to get their pain checked out end up spending more time, energy and money to get it fixed.

In conclusion, neck pain can be very debilitating. It can affect all of your daily activities , from exercise, work, playing with your kids and even simple things like getting dressed or sleeping. It doesn’t have to be this way, let us help you!

Your in Health,

Dr. Bourdage

Chiropractors help many people with knee pain

I love sharing success stories, here is one about a knee. A practice member who I’ve known for a while came in one day and was very stressed and concerned. After we got to talking she told me her knee was really bothering her and it was preventing her from working out. Working out is her life, she is in amazing shape and trains at least 4-5 days a week with intensity. She said she was at her wits end with her knee and was getting ready to see an orthopedic surgeon. I took a look at her knee and was able to diagnose what was going on. Continue reading
