Neck Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
Over 75% of people experience neck pain at some point in their lives, making it one of the most common disorders of the musculoskeletal system affecting the adult population.
Part of the reason for the pervasiveness of neck pain is the many factors that can affect the health of your cervical spine. These include:
Accidents and injuries
Any injury can cause spinal damage, but whiplash is particularly associated with neck pain
Degenerative disc disease
A disease that reduces the height and elasticity of intervertebral discs, causing herniation or bulging
The narrowing of nerve passageways in the vertebrae that compresses nerve roots
A progressive cartilage deterioration that causes bony protuberances that interfere with joint motion
Obesity, weak abdominal muscles, and poor posture all contribute to abnormal spinal balance, while stress causes muscles to contract
Fortunately, chiropractic care can address these issues with safe, effective, drug-free treatments.
Chiropractic — The Drug-free Neck Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care is an excellent choice for people who want fast, effective neck pain treatment that doesn’t rely on dangerous medications.
A chiropractor will perform a comprehensive physical exam that includes noting range of motion, reflexes, muscle strength, and more.
If necessary, your chiropractor will use other diagnostic tests like x-rays, computerized axial tomography (CT) scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), among others to pinpoint areas of concern.
Then, he will use gentle spinal manipulation to restore spinal structures to optimal function for reduced pain and inflammation.
If necessary, he may use massage therapy, mobilization, or physical therapy to speed recovery.
