Neck pain affects millions of people at some point in their lives and for the most part can get better with nonsurgical treatments and time. The bodily source of neck pain can include but are not limited to: muscle sprain/strain, joint dysfunction, degenerative changes, and disc problems. Often arm pain can be associated with neck pain due to the irritation, compression, or inflammation of the spinal nerve root , or referred pain due to structures in the neck (ligament, muscle, joint, disc) generating pain down into the arms.
Most episodes of acute neck pain are due to a muscle sprain/strain or ligamentous injury and respond well to chiropractic care. Certain symptoms associated with neck pain such as progressive weakness or loss of feeling in the arms can indicate a more serious condition and can be managed through chiropractic care in addition to conventional treatments. Whether it’s acute or chronic neck back pain you are suffering from, we can assist in reducing your symptoms and help get you back to living and enjoying your life.
A physical exam will be performed at the office. Once evaluated, we will work to reduce your pain and improve your symptoms through a treatment plan consisting of chiropractic manipulation, modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, spinal decompression), soft tissue techniques, and exercise. If needed, we are prepared to refer you for the proper diagnostic tests as well as to orthopedic specialists, neurologists, and pain specialists in the area. Make your appointment today!
