Neck pain is a common affliction that affects millions of Americans. Your neck, or cervical spine, is especially prone to injury and those injuries can be especially debilitating. Whiplash or even sleeping wrong can cause neck pain but you may also experience it from a misaligned veterbra, disc herniation, and arthritis. After examination of the neck, if X-rays are indicated, they can be taken at our office.
What is the cervical spine?
The cervical spine supports the entire weight of your head and is the seven vertebrae that run from the base of your skull to your shoulders. Chiropractic care has been shown to increase spinal range of motion, and to decrease or eliminate pain. Headaches can also be helped with chiropractic treatment, as well as neck, shoulder and arm pain.
Treatment may include:
- Heat Therapy
- Cold Therapy
- Therapeutic Ultrasound
- Gentle Adjustments
- Muscle Stimulation
