Neck Pain Treatment With Chiropractic Care
People often seek neck pain treatment at Chaney Chiropractic Clinic for severe, persistent, or debilitating cervical pain or stiffness. The pain can result from a personal injury, sports injury, auto accident injury, or degenerative condition, as our Beverly Hills, FL, chiropractor, Dr. Chaney or Dr. Walther, may explain to you during your consultation. Our patients choose chiropractic solutions as their first line of therapy or after trying traditional treatments that provide fleeting relief.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Pain is commonly caused by whiplash, spine injury, or a mechanical problem. Mechanical factors include poor posture when lifting, sleeping, or using a computer for long periods. Incorrect postures put stress on the neck joints and strain the muscles. Another cause is chemical interference such as inflammation, as seen in patients with a pinched nerve, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Your chiropractor can help treat pain caused by a spinal injury, poor posture, inflammation, nerve interference, and the following cervical degenerative conditions:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Bone spur
- Dystonia (muscle spasms)
Neck Pain Symptoms
Sharp or dull pain, soreness, swelling, stiffness, muscle spasms, headaches, and pain that radiates to the shoulder, arm, or hand are all common symptoms. Trouble moving the neck in a certain direction and numbness or tingling caused by a pinched nerve are other potential symptoms. Bear in mind that injury such as whiplash may not trigger pain or other symptoms right away.
Natural Neck Pain Treatment by Your Beverly Hills Chiropractor
Chiropractic care is an effective way to treat neck pain. Before personalizing your treatment plan, Dr. Chaney or Dr. Walther will need to evaluate your symptoms, do a physical exam, and x-ray the spine. Sometimes a CT scan, MRI, or neural exam is ordered for a more extensive assessment.
- Chiropractic care: Involves non-surgical treatments, such as cervical spinal adjustments and decompression therapy, that reduce the pain and related symptoms. Dr. Chaney or Dr. Walther can manipulate the cervical joints and connective tissue to achieve proper alignment, correct nerve interference, reduce inflammation, and relieve restrictions. Spinal decompression provides similar relief and effectively restores a herniated disc as well as improve range of motion.
- Therapeutic massage: Stimulates blood flow, which is important for reducing inflammation and repairing soft tissue.
- Corrective exercise: Improves joint strength and increase flexibility.
- Lifestyle and nutrition changes: We encourage patients to manage stress, practice good posture, and eat foods that help reduce toxins and inflammation. These health changes can help prevent recurring pain.
