Neck Pain and Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is a conservative therapy for the treatment of neck pain and its associated symptoms. Chiropractic can be an effective treatment option for cervical sprains, Degenerative joint disease (arthritis), cervical disc disease, cervical IVD injuries not requiring surgery, facet joint injuries and whiplash.

Chiropractic Treatment for these conditions will begin after a through physical exam, review of you medical history and taking and/or reviewing a set of cervical x-rays. An evaluation of your thoracic and lumbar spine along with your posture may also be performed to determine if your cervical issues are possibly compensatory in nature. Once these evaluations have been concluded a treatment plan will be constructed to deal with your specific problem. This plan will include a combination of the following therapies:

Specific manual adjustments to restore normal motion to vertebral units

Non-instrument and instrument assisted soft tissue therapy to reduce myofascial adhesions, scar tissue, and muscle spasms

Kinesio Taping to reduce inflammation and muscle spasm

Trigger point therapy

Manuel joint stretching techniques to reduce spasms and pain

Cold laser and inferential electrical stimulation for pain control, muscle spasm and inflammation

Once your condition and treatment options have been explained to you a treatment plan that returns you to pain free status should be constructed. If this is not possible a treatment plan with adjunct home therapies like exercise, stretching, ice and heat along with some maintenance care can be constructed to get you as close to pain free as possible.
