How Chiropractors Help With Neck Pain
People who experience chronic neck pain in Plainfield, IN know how it can affect their quality of life. Fortunately, chiropractors like Dr. Bright can help alleviate or eliminate the pain using proven treatments and techniques without prescribing medication or recommending surgery. Here are some treatments Dr. Bright uses to treat neck pain:
- Neck alignment to put joints back in their proper positions
- Neck exercises and assisted stretching
- Tips to improve posture
- Occipital release to relax muscles after an adjustment
Chiropractic Adjustments (Spinal Manipulation)
Chiropractic adjustments (also known as spinal manipulation) are the primary techniques doctors use to treat neck and back pain. By gently stretching or manipulating the spine or surrounding areas, adjustments help reduce inflammation, relieve joint pressure, and enhance nerve function.
Chiropractors have over 100 techniques available to them when they perform adjustments or spinal manipulations, so the odds are high one of the procedures will help alleviate or eliminate neck or back pain.
Chiropractic Adjustment Side Effects
In some cases, patients may experience mild soreness in the affected areas after a chiropractic adjustment. Fortunately, the soreness usually recedes within the first few hours after treatment. Most patients report the pain is completely gone after 24 hours, and many people actually enjoy adjustments. However, it may take three or more treatments to experience the full benefits of a chiropractic adjustment or manipulation.
Chiropractors also have an arsenal of drugless therapies at their disposal beyond spinal manipulations or adjustments. Massage therapy, nutrition, stretching, proper posture, and neck exercises are all effective treatment options chiropractors employ when treating problems with the musculoskeletal system.
