Warning Signs of Neck Pain (What NOT to Ignore)

DO YOU HAVE NECK PAIN? Severe Stiffness?

CONCERNED IT IS CAUSED BY A SERIOUS DISEASE? 
YOU HEART? MENINGITIS?

HAVE YOU BEEN MIS-DIAGNOSED?

Chest pain - have you been mis-diagnosed?

We will get to the root cause of your mid-back pain. If it is something we determine treatable with chiropractic, it will not only feel better but be less likely to return. Else we will refer you out to an appropriate specialist for your specific condition. If you are looking for a chiropractor in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple, and all are experts. Surely you will love one of us (if not all).

Neck PAIN: WARNING SIGNS IT IS COMING FROM THE HEART

Heart attacks usually cause chest pain, a heaviness to the chest, pain into the left shoulder blade region, left shoulder and even down into the left arm. But heart attacks can also shoot pain up into the neck, the right side down into the right arm. Pain can shoot up into the jaw. It can cause a heart burn sensation like you feel with GERD.  Heart attacks can cause a shortness of breath and sense of doom.

One of the big differentiating factors of a heart attack versus a muscle-skeletal cause of pain is that during a heart attack, you can not find a comfortable position. You end up writhing in pain, looking for relief. If it was due to a neck, rib, shoulder or mid-back joint or muscle injury, you usually can find a position that alleviates the pain. 

Another differentiating factor is if you pain worsens with cardio-vascular taxing activities (like going upstairs), SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. Heart attacks are time sensitive. The sooner you get medical treatment the better. If your pain is due to a shoulder, rib or back injury, going up the stairs should not make it feel worse.

When it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your neck, shoulder, back or rib, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.

NECK PAIN: WARNING SIGNS IT Is MENINGITIS

If your pain is worsening, and your neck stiffening to the point you can not move, you need to see a doctor. If you have a fever,SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. Meningitis is time sensitive. The sooner you get medical treatment the better.

Again, when it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your mid-back, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.

MID-BACK PAIN: WARNING SIGNS IT IS COMING a DISSECTING artery

One of the big differentiating factors of a vascular issue versus a muscle-skeletal cause of pain is that if the pain is coming from injury to the lining of your vascular vessels, you can not find a comfortable position. You end up writhing in pain, looking for relief. If it was due to your neck, rib, shoulder or mid-back joint or muscle injury, you usually can find a position that alleviates the pain. 

Again, when it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your mid-back, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.

LOOKING FOR HOME REMEDIES FOR NECK PAIN?

Before you try any new remedy, talk with your health care provider to verify it is appropriate for your specific condition. Hopefully that is one of our chiropractors here at Drummond Chiropractic. You do not want to try stretching away mid-back pain if the pain is from your gall bladder, kidney, heart or some other insidious condition!
