How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Neck Pain

By Sabine Dorothy Docteur

A literal pain in the neck can be bothersome and can disrupt the day-to-day pleasures of life. When neck pain proves to be a disrupter of your healthy lifestyle, you must take steps to get rid of it in order to get back to your normal routines. There are a number of reasons why we can get that stiffness in the neck. Chiropractic care is one of the natural options one can use to get rid of that uncomfortable feeling.

Visiting a chiropractor will provide you with a noninvasive way of treating your neck pain. Some different types of neck conditions that chiropractors treat include cervical sprain injuries, facet joint injuries and whiplash. Before getting the proper treatment for your pain, a chiropractor will assess your neck and properly diagnose your condition.

Getting the Proper Diagnosis

Chiropractors will first perform a thorough evaluation on your initial visit to locate the source of the pain, since it can be found anywhere along your cervical spine. During your visit, they will also get a chance to examine your posture, range of motion, and your physical condition through physical examination. A neurological exam may also be performed. The neurological exam will assess your muscle strength, reflexes, and the area spread of the pain. Your chiropractor may also order tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans to confirm a diagnosis. These imaging tests will show if there are any bulging discs in the spine causing your pain. It is important to get the proper diagnosis in order to receive the treatment that will best fit you. Thus, a thorough examination is warranted to arrive at the reason for your discomfort.

Appropriate Chiropractic Treatments to Follow

Varying treatment options will be offered based on the diagnosis. The chiropractor might suggest a neck adjustment, which will typically result in improved mobility, improved range of motion, a reduction of stiffness, and reduced pain in the cervical region. Studies have shown overwhelmingly that those who received spinal manipulative therapy from a doctor of chiropractic saw a significant reduction in pain.

Neck pain is a fairly common occurrence because it is an area that can easily be hurt. You can cause injury due to repetitive movement, sleeping on one side at night, and accidents. To receive the proper medical treatment, be sure to visit The Joint Chiropractic at a location near you. With affordable rates and convenient hours, you owe it to yourself to take care of that crick in your neck when it arises.
