Neck pain affects a large number of people. Neck pain and injury can cause problems with headaches, carpal tunnel related symptoms, whiplash related symptoms and certain shoulder conditions. Studies show that more than 10% of Americans suffer from neck pain at any point in time. There are many factors that cause this including past injuries that never healed properly, poor posture, prolonged sitting, and lack of periodic spinal alignments.
Chiropractic treatment is extremely beneficial for people suffering from neck pain. Chiropractors address the muscles, joints and nerves to relieve stress on the cervical spine. Our office has had tremendous success with helping patients who suffer from neck pain and problems. Our care is safe & noninvasive with no side effects!
Melissa W. came to our office with unresolved neck pain she had lived with for the past 2 years. She noted that her pain would fluctuate between mild and severe depending on a variety of conditions (how she slept, how much she worked, if she stayed in one position too long, etc.). She reported that she had been living on pain medication off and on for the past 2 years. After a complete history and examination our trained staff came up with a treatment plan consisting of specific stretches and exercises, heat, muscle stripping and adjustments. At her reevaluation one month later, she noted she felt 75-80% better!
We hear success stories like this every day. Call our office to schedule an appointment for an evaluation so you too can start feeling better today!
Whiplash-Symptoms include pain in the neck, back and shoulders. Experiencing headaches and fatigue or a pins-and-needles sensation in the extremities are all symptoms which can last for a few days or longer. This is an injury to the spinal cord and seriously affects the neck and mid-back.
The spine is built of vertebrate that are essentially stacked upon each other. The discs act as cushions to the stacked up vertebrate in order to reduce movement. After time, due to age or injury, the softer inner portion can rupture through the outer ring causing a herniated disc. This injury often happens in between the 4th and 5th vertebra in the lower back, the part of the back that withstands the most impact and twisting throughout the day.
