Chiropractic Care And Neck Pain
Neck pain can be pretty annoying and diminish your quality of life. But that can change with chiropractic care. Although doctors may prescribe medications and other types of treatment for neck pain, chiropractic care can be a great alternative treatment that should be considered.
Neck pain is caused by irritated or inflamed muscles, ligaments or joints. Symptoms include restricted range of motion, sharp or radiating pain or soreness. Chiropractic treatment focuses on manipulating the spine and joints to relieve that pain. To be specific, there are two types of adjustments that can be common to treat neck pain. First, there are spine adjustments used to loosen up joints in the back and then there are neck adjustments to loosen up joints in the neck.
Regular chiropractic adjustments will reduce inflammation, improve mobility and range of motion and improve function throughout your central nervous system. A good reason to consider chiropractic care for your neck pain is it’s a non-invasive and drug-free approach. Of course, for more serious problems concerning your neck such as feeling numbness on other parts of your body or experiencing fevers, headaches or throwing up, you should see a doctor.
Chiropractic care can help treat other pain problems as well such as back pain and diseases such as arthritis. To schedule a consultation and take advantage of our new patient special, visit this link.
