Chiropractor in Hurst TX Explains Severe Morning Neck

Chiropractic Hurst TX morning neck

"I think I might have slept wrong. I woke up this morning with neck pain and my head is tilted to the right. When I try to move my head there's a sharp, shooting pain from my neck to my shoulder blade."

If you are having a morning like this, you may be suffering from a condition called torticollis. Torticollis in Hurst TX or "wry neck" is when the muscles of the neck go into severe spasm and often cause the head to tilt to one side. Torticollis can affect adults, children and even infants.

Symptoms of torticollis include:

  • Acute onset of neck and shoulder pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Tilted chin to one side

Most of the time there is no known cause of torticollis. Some possible triggers include trauma (falling down, car accidents, sports, etc.) and sleeping with window open or having a fan or air conditioner blowing on you.

Treatment suggestions for torticollis include:

  • Advanced Chiropractic Methods
  • Medical massage (I highly recommend Glenda Stefanini with Kneading Medical Massage)
  • Analgesics
  • Heat packs
  • Muscle relaxants

Usually, torticollis will slowly get better over a 3-4 week period. However, that time frame can be shortened with Advanced Chiropractic Methods. Most people will seek out treatment early as the sharp pain can severely limit activity. Some cases can last longer than a month so getting treatment for this condition is recommended.
