Neck Pain? Here’s How Chiropractic Can Help
Neck pain will affect most people at some point in their lives. Some people get better with very little to no intervention. Many, however, do not.
The onset of neck pain, in some cases, could be triggered by an accident. This could be a sports injury, a fall, or as the result of an auto accident. Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of neck pain and often leave accident victims suffering from whiplash, headaches, or herniated and bulging discs. However, the everyday stresses we succumb our bodies to such as working on a computer, texting on a cell phone, carrying a purse, or even reading a book can result in neck problems.
Here are a few of the most common causes of neck pain:
Degenerative structural changes due to aging
Repetitive stressful movements
If left untreated, these injuries can have expensive and long term consequences. Even small neck injuries can create muscle imbalances and degenerative bone changes over time.
As leading chiropractors in their field, the doctors of L.I.F.T. Chiropractic, offer advanced non-surgical solutions designed to help your neck pain. The doctors use a highly successful combination of spinal decompression where applicable, electrical stimulation, and chiropractic treatment to decrease pain and speed up the healing process. By using this effective combination of services, many patients can avoid surgery, painful steroid and cortisone injections and the need for continuous pain medication.
Whether your pain has begun recently, or has been a problem for years, our experienced doctors can help.
When should I seek treatment?
It is important to consult a Chiropractor if you are suffering from frequent headaches or migraines, if you are experiencing recurrent pain in your head, neck, or shoulders, or if you experience tingling or radiating pain into your arms and hands (Yes! This numbness, tingling, and ‘pins and needles’ sensation can be caused by the nerves exiting your neck and is often misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome). Our medical professionals at L.I.F.T. Chiropractic can properly evaluate your condition to determine an appropriate treatment plan.
