With the constant presence of computers, smartphones and tablets in our lives, neck pain is never very far behind. Constantly looking down to check social media updates or using improper posture in a desk chair day after day can spell bad news for the neck.
In addition to these chronic problems, sudden trauma such as a sports injury or auto accident can also take its toll on the neck and back. Unfortunately, this type of pain isn’t just a nuisance; it’s a red flag for other spinal alignment problems that can cause real headaches – quite literally, in some cases – if they aren’t addressed.

Is My Neck Pain Serious?
Pain is the body’s way of signaling us that something is wrong and needs correction. Even if you’re only experiencing mild discomfort, if it occurs regularly or after a traumatic event like a car accident, it’s in your best interests to seek chiropractic care preemptively. Chances are, a small pinched nerve or soreness will lead to bigger pain responses as the body attempts to compensate for the injury.
When you visit our Hilton Head Island chiropractic office, we’ll be able to tell you not only why you’re likely experiencing your neck pain, but also how to stop the pain response and prevent it in the future. Simply put, all pain is serious when it affects your quality of life, and every patient of ours is treated with equal care and concern.
