Treatment for Neck Pain
At our practice, we utilize various treatments that are effective in relieving neck pain. Some techniques we use include the following:
Chiropractic adjustments are special techniques that quickly realign the discs and vertebrae in the neck. Along with that, the treatments improve blood flow, release pain-relieving endorphins, and help the body heal. Chiropractic adjustments can also increase your range of motion and alleviate tension headaches or migraines caused by stiff neck muscles.
Spinal decompression involves gently stretching the neck and relieving pressure between the vertebrae. As a results, it allows gas to escape and fluid flow in to lubricate the discs in between each small bone.
With this technique, our chiropractor will gently move your head and neck in different directions, which helps realign vertebrae without forceful movements. This treatment can be beneficial in relieving pain due to neck surgery, spinal stenosis, and injury.
Gentle electrical stimulation can be used on your neck and shoulder muscles to help trigger them to release. The method can be used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustment sand other neck pain treatments to help you recover completely.
During the treatment, our chiropractor will place sticky electrodes in designated spots. Then, we will slowly increase the amount of electrical stimulation until you reach a setting that provides pain relief without discomfort. The treatment lasts for several minutes before the pads are removed. Your muscles will continue to relax over the course of the next few hours and most people feel much better the next day.
