How Our Chiropractors Treats Neck Pain
Neck pain can have a number of causes, including injury due to accidents, poor posture, lack of strength in core muscles, obesity, and degenerative conditions due to age, like osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis. Here at Principled Chiropractic we will begin your neck pain treatment by asking questions about your neck pain symptoms and any home remedies you have tried or other treatment you have sought.
- When your neck pain started
- What home remedies or other treatments you have tried to relieve your neck pain
- Whether the pain seems to radiate from your neck or travel to other parts of the spine or body
- Whether anything you have tried relieves the pain at all
- Whether any activities, postures, or positions worsen the pain
Here at Principled Chiropractic, neck pain treatment will begin with a complete chiropractic examination, during which our doctors will perform various tests to evaluate your spinal mobility
and reflexes as well as postural, neurological, orthopedic, and physical health. Our doctors will also take X-rays in order to get a closer look at what is going on in your spine. Once we have
had a chance to examine your X-rays and consider the results of our chiropractic exam, we will develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. You will probably receive your first chiropractic neck pain treatment at the end of your initial consultation.
Our doctors use a variety of chiropractic techniques to provide relief from neck and back pain, restore mobility, and promote total wellness. Some of the techniques he employs include:
- Active release techniques or ART
- Manual chiropractic adjustments
- Drop table techniques
- Soft tissue and joint mobilization
Neck pain relief often requires adjustment of the whole spine and even other parts of the musculoskeletal system, since misalignments can rob the cervical spine of needed stability. The specific techniques our doctors use vary from one patient to the next, depending on the patient's needs. For example, a patient who needs a gentler chiropractic adjustment might benefit from the drop table technique. A patient that has developed scar tissue in the soft tissues due to an injury or accident may benefit from other techniques. When the bones of the spine are misaligned, or joint mobility elsewhere in the body is suffering for whatever reason, manual manipulation may be administered.
