When to See a Chiropractor for Neck Pain
Neck pain can be an agonizing experience, especially if not properly treated. The pain can be caused by a pinched nerve or forcefully moving your neck backward and forwards unexpectedly resulting in damage to joints, muscles, and ligaments around the neck. At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we offer holistic treatment for joint-related ailments including neck pain.
Types of Neck Pain
If left unaddressed, neck pain can worsen over time. If you experience one or more of these symptoms, it could be a warning that all is not well and that you need prompt chiropractic care.
- Neck pain that worsens when you wake up
- A restricted range of motion due to severe pain
- The pain resulted from an accident
- You feel a numb, tingling sensation in your arms
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Poor posture could result in a repetitive stress injury while trauma could cause neck strain, commonly known as whiplash. Both contribute to neck pain. Neck pain treatment consists of various chiropractic spinal adjustments. The spinal adjustments involve applying pressure to a joint to return it to its natural position.
This is intended to restore the proper functioning of joints and muscles that have been damaged due to repetitive motion or trauma. Cervical manipulations provide relief to pinched nerves and muscle strain. Our chiropractor loosens the cervical vertebrae in the neck area by moving affected joints back into alignment. Chiropractic adjustments will reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
