The Only Neck Pain Relief Chiropractor For You!

neck pain chiropracticNeck pain can be one of the most debilitating conditions an individual can experience. Whether it’s from laying down and sleeping, sitting at a desk all day, or even working-out, your neck is always in use. So, it’s essential to make sure it’s secure and properly positioned. When you don’t take care of your neck and the pain starts to set-in, it can lead to a whole new world of conditions and problems. This is why it’s so important to not only have proper posture, but to also visit your local Wesley Chapel chiropractor to ensure your neck is properly aligned. Through proper neck pain chiropractic treatments – we can alleviate the pain – helping find the relief you are looking for.

Common Causes of Neck and Back Pain:

Injury and Accidents: A sudden movement of the head or neck in a direction and the “rebound” in the opposite direction is known as whiplash. The sudden “whipping” motion injures the surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck, head and mid to lower back. Muscles react by tightening and spasming, causing muscle fatigue, and resulting in pain and stiffness. Car accidents and certain impact injuries from sports are common causes of whiplash.

Degenerative Conditions: Osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease directly affect the spine. These degenerative conditions can be caused by previous injuries, repetitive motion, or wear-and-tear from daily activities.

Daily Life: Poor posture, obesity, and weak core muscles often cause spinal balances, causing the neck, mid and lower back to bend forward to compensate. Stress and emotional tension can cause muscles to tighten and contract, resulting in pain and stiffness.

What Can You Expect During Your Visit?

During your visit, the chiropractor will perform exams to locate the source of your pain and will ask you questions about your current symptoms and remedies you may have already tried.

In the physical exam, your doctor will observe your posture, range of motion, and perform various orthopedic tests. Your doctor will palpate your spine, note its curvature and alignment, and feel for muscle spasm. During the neurological exam, your doctor will test your muscle strength, reflexes, and nerve sensations in your neck and back.

In some instances, your chiropractor might order tests to help diagnose your condition. An x-ray can show decreased disc space, fractures, bone spurs, or arthritic degeneration. A computerized axial tomography scan (a CT or CAT scan) or a magnetic resonance imaging test (an MRI) can show bulging discs and herniation.

As conservative care doctors, a chiropractor’s scope of practice does not include the use of drugs or surgery. If your chiropractor diagnoses a condition outside of this conservative scope, he or she will refer you to the appropriate medical physician or specialist.

How Can Chiropractic Help With Neck Pain

Neck and Back Adjustments: A spinal adjustment (also known as a spinal manipulation) is a precise procedure applied to the joints of the neck or back, usually by hand or an instrument. A neck and back adjustment works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion; it can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles. Patients often notice an improved ability to tilt and turn the head, neck or back with a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness.

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression: Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve neck and back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This will take pressure off the spinal discs, which are gellike cushions between the bones in your spine. Over time, negative pressure from this therapy may cause bulging or herniated discs to retract. That can take pressure off the nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.

Therapy: During progressive therapy, you will practice range of motion exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your neck and back. You’ll also learn how to improve your posture and range of motion needed to enhance your activities of daily living.

Of course, your chiropractor will develop a plan of care that may combine more than one type of treatment, depending on your personal needs. Make your appointment today!
