Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
According to the National Institute of Health, neck pain affects 30%-50% of adults every year. Of those adults 50%-80% do not experience complete resolution of symptoms and may end up with chronic impairing pain.
A common response is to take over the counter pain medications (ibprofrin, asprin, analgesics) or treating the symptoms with muscle relaxers and heating pads. While these may give you temporary relief, symptoms will continue until the underlying cause is determined. Chiropractic starts with locating this underlying condition and creating a treatment plan to correct the issue. This all starts with your first visit and a thorough examination.
Our Chiropractors will look at several areas of the neck and may take an x-ray to take a closer look at the spine. We look for proper spinal curve, nerve openings between each pair of spinal bones, proper head balance, and level shoulders. These along with other factors are used to create a personalized specific plan of chiropractic adjustments to improve the position and motion of the spinal vertabrae.
Improving the function and structure of the neck often diminishes or completely relieves neck pain, without the use of harmful or addictive drugs. According to a study by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, patients who recieved chiropractic care reported significant improvement in their neck function and a reduction the neck pain whereas those taking pain-killers did not.
