Neck & Back Pain Relief, Creighton Health CareNeck pain can be caused by an auto injury or from a fall. The neck is a very vulnerable part of the spine. It is very susceptible to injury. Muscle, ligament, nerve, and spine injuries are common causes of neck pain.

Neck pain can spread to the head, shoulders, arms, and hands. It can be acute or chronic. Acute neck pain begins suddenly, usually after an injury. Acute neck pain resolves as the injury heals, usually within several days or weeks. Chronic neck pain lasts longer than three months. Chronic pain may be constant and caused by structural changes in the spine from degenerative diseases.

Whiplash is one of the most common of all car accident injuries, with over one million incidents each year. Although it can describe a large  range of neck injuries, it is typically used to describe hyperflexion and hyperextension injuries. Early care is highly recommended to prevent development or worsening of Whiplash Syndrome.  Immediately after an injury the body begins to lay down scar tissue.  The longer it takes to get the help you need, the worse it gets!

Many neck and back injuries dont show themselves right a way. Many of them entail seemingly minor damage, but given over time, the damage can increase to the point of extreme debilitation.

In some cases, neck pain indicates serious injury and require a doctor’s care. If you have neck pain that continues for more than a week, is severe, or is accompanied by other symptoms, contact the doctors at Creighton Health Care immediately.

Headaches caused by auto accidentsIf you have been in a car accident and are experiencing headaches, you should consult the car accident doctors at Creighton Health Care for a complete and thorough evaluation.

Your head pain can come from various injuries created by the car accident. Most common is if your head strikes the head restraint, you can experience head pain. You may also strike the door or window frame if you are struck on the side of your car causing you to have pain on the side of your head. In a front impact collision, it is very common to strike your head on the airbag creating a frontal headache.

You may also suffer a headache from the sudden impact a car accident creates. this sudden impact causing your brain to quickly move in your skull and stretch the ligaments suspending it in place. Your brain may actually touch the inside of your skull in a car accident jolt. In either case, you probably suffered a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury.

The most common symptom of a concussion is a headache. You may also experience sleepiness even after a full nights sleep, sensitivity to light and sound may also disturb you. You may also have difficulty concentrating or remembering things, have some dizziness and or nausea. You may even be angry or be overly emotional.

If you have a car accident and experience any of those symptoms along with your headache its pretty good bet you have a concussion.

Headaches can originate from your neck. The muscles and ligaments that make up your neck have many pain fibers. Once the pain fibers have been injured they will direct pain back to various parts of your body like you head.

Your neck is well supplied with nerves that when injured will direct pain to your head causing your headaches. Damaged muscles and ligaments will direct pain to the back of your neck thereby creating your headache.

Carpal Tunnel CorrectionAccording to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.”

The median nerve is responsible for controlling the movement in your hand of the thumb and first three fingers. This “pressing” or “squeezing” on the nerve tunnel makes that canal smaller, resulting in an irritation of the nerve.

The condition can be quite painful and it is generally progressive, meaning that it gets worse over time.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including disease and even pregnancy. However, the most common causes are repetitive motion and trauma.mRepetitive motion occurs where you make the same hand or wrist movements over and over.

 

 There are many different types of activities that may include repetitive hand or wrist motions, including some types of jobs. These include:

  • typing or data entry
  • assembly line work
  • playing musical instruments
  • working on a computer
  • sewing
  • mechanic
  • painter
  • agricultural worker
  • locksmith
  • cashier, and jobs that require repeated use of vibrating tools

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can also be caused by trauma or injury to the wrist. A car accident or work-related event that causes broken or fractured bones may lead to CTS symptoms. Wrist sprains or strains can have the same result.

What are the Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can vary from person to person, and also with the nature of the activity. However, the most common symptoms include:

  • numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the thumb or first three fingers
  • loss of dexterity in the thumb or fingers
  • pain in the hand, even going up to the arm and shoulder grip weakness or an inability to grasp or pinch, andfrequent dropping of objects.
