Neck Pain Treatment: Chiropractic Can Help
Neck pain can be chronic and cause discomfort.
Chronic pain is a significant disruption of everyday life. Physical limitations like neck pain can make even the simplest of tasks seem impossible.
However, there is a solution that’s non-invasive and drug-free.
First, let’s look at what causes neck pain. The American Chiropractic Association says that some common causes of neck pain include spinal stenosis, aging, osteoarthritis, and degenerative disc disease.
Neck pain can also result from accidents and injury – especially car accidents. If the damage is severe enough, you may experience chronic pain for years. Daily life also exacerbates neck pain, from issues like obesity and poor posture to having weak abdominal muscles.
Now we know some of the causes, let’s take a look at how you can safely treat neck pain without surgery or painkillers.
Chiropractic as an Effective Neck Pain Treatment
So, what does the research tell us? Anahad O’Connor says that patients who participated in clinical trials experience significant improvement after using chiropractic as a neck pain treatment.
These patients showed signs of impressive pain-level improvement following chiropractic spinal manipulation. This evidence supports the belief that chiropractic is an effective neck pain treatment.
How will your chiropractor assist in relieving your neck pain? In some instances, your chiropractor may organize for initial tests in order to diagnose your condition correctly. These may be in the form of an MRI or a CAT scan, to indicate where the problem lies.
For your neck pain treatment, your doctor of chiropractic may decide that a neck adjustment is the best option. Also referred to as cervical manipulation, this chiropractic technique involves pressure applied to the joints in your neck, generally by hand.
A neck adjustment can improve the mobility of your spine and help to restore your range of motion again. Patients who receive a neck adjustment often observe a reduction in stiffness and pain.
