Neck pain is a common condition second only to low back pain in which many people experience at some point in their lives, women reporting slightly higher instances of chronic pain. With the types of treatment options available, chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free therapy that many people choose for their neck pain treatment.
Before deciding the best approach for your neck pain treatment, the doctors at Alpha Chiropractic will do a thorough examination to diagnose the specific cause of your symptoms.
As with all thorough chiropractic examinations the doctor will determine the areas of restricted movement or misaligned vertebrae otherwise called asubluxationand to confirm the exact areas and cause of your neck pain with imaging studies. Subluxation is the medical term for misalignment.
The chiropractor uses specific spinal adjustments as part of your neck pain treatment to restore mobility to spinal joints restricted by tissue injuries stemming from repetitive stress and trauma such as accidents, sports injuries, poor ergonomics and chronic poor posture
Such causes of neck pain which can benefit from chiropractic care include the following:
- Spinal disc herniation
- Referred pain from upper back problems
- Pinched nerve
- Forward head posture
- Degenerative arthritis of the spine
- Poor sleeping posture
Chiropractic neck pain treatment can also involve soft tissue work, stretching, and specific postural and strengthening exercises. If required, a spinal orthotic device called the Denneroll is also used to complement the spinal adjustments. Once pressure is taken off your disc, nerves and joints, symptoms improve and prevention of further wear and tear is achieved.
