How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Neck Pain
If you struggle with neck pain, you know just how annoying this ailment can be. Turning your head is painful and can lead to a headache. You are left massaging your sore neck muscles and wondering if you slept on it wrong or otherwise pulled a muscle.
While painkillers can temporarily help with your discomfort, they are often no match for the lingering symptoms that can last days or even weeks. If you are wondering how to permanently live pain-free, look no further than ABChiropractic Family & Wellness.
How does Chiropractic Care Treat Neck Pain?
At ABChiropractic Family & Wellness, Dr. Awwad, Dr. Faulkner, and Dr. Ezell, are highly trained and have a wealth of experience in naturally treating a wide range of skeletal and non-skeletal neck issues.
When it comes to treating neck pain, a variety of chiropractic techniques can offer effective relief. Neck manipulations, also known as chiropractic neck adjustments, are performed to release the joints of the cervical vertebrae in the neck. This can help with discomfort from pinched nerves, muscle spasms, strains, and other issues.
Some of the most common cervical manipulation techniques are as follows:
Cervical mobilization: This entails manually moving the vertebrae in the neck back and forth while the patient is lying on their back.
Cervical manual traction: Here, the chiropractor gently pulls on the neck to stretch the cervical spine.
Cervical drop techniques: This involves gradually applying pressure to a spinal segment to adjust it.
Drs. Awwad, Faulkner, and Ezell will develop a personalized treatment plan for you that may employ some of the above methods, as well as additional tools like at-home exercises and stretches, to get you on the road to recovery.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Neck Pain?
At ABChiropractic Family & Wellness, Dr. Awwad, Dr. Faulkner, and Dr. Ezell safely adjust the vertebrae in your neck. Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain relievers commonly prescribed to help relieve neck pain and inflammation.
