Cervical spine pain (neck pain), like any other region of the spine, can be caused by a multitude of problems. Instead of self diagnosing, it is best to be examined by a CAM Clinic Doctor to rule out any more serious health problems before going forward with your alternative care.
Neck pain is most commonly caused by musculoskeletal factors and may result in local neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and even jaw pain. In some instances cervical spine and cervical spine disc injuries can create symptoms elsewhere in the body, especially in the arms, hands, and fingers.
Here are a few of the most common causes of neck pain that we see at CAM Clinic:
Thoracic spine pain (mid back pain) like any other region of the spine, can be caused by a multitude of problems. Instead of self diagnosing, it is best to be examined by a CAM Clinic Doctor to rule out any more serious health problems before going forward with your alternative care.
Typical causes of thoracic spine pain that we see in CAM Clinic include:
There are many different types of headaches, and many different causes, however, headaches are most commonly associated with problems with the cervical spine. For this reason, most headaches are called “Cervicogenic Headaches” or “Tension Headaches.” Approximately 9 out of 10 headaches are tension headaches (spurring from the neck). They can be easily diagnosed as they typically start later in the day, or after strenuous activity, and examinations of the neck will make the headache worse. There is no associated “aura” with tension headaches and sensitivity to light is very rare. Those symptoms are most commonly attributed to migraine headaches.
Tension headaches can be caused by a number of problems with the neck and associated structures. They can be easily managed and treated with basic chiropractic care. Headaches are one of the most common complaints of patients at CAM Clinic and one of the most commonly successfully treated ailments as well.
Lower Back Pain
Low Back Pain, also called lumbago, is often thrown around as a “Catch-all” term to describe thousands of possible causes of pain in the lumbar spine, the most inferior set of vertebrae in the human body. However, the layman may confuse “low back” with “sacropelvis” and use the phrase “low back pain” to describe what is actually sacral or pelvic pain.
The causes for low back pain are so numerous that it would be impractical to list them all. Some of the most common causes in our office are listed below, but take care not to self diagnose yourself. Low back pain can be caused by SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS that may require medical intervention. Be sure to give your Center for Alternative Medicine Doctor a full and accurate history of your symptoms so they may best diagnose your particular ailment.
