CHIROPRACTOR FOR NECK PAIN
Neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including accidents and injuries. Chiropractors can diagnose the cause of neck pain and perform a treatment plan that is right for the patient’s individual needs. Chiropractic care aims to provide relief from pain without medication or surgery, making chiropractic an appealing option for those suffering from neck pain issues.
Here are some of the best chiropractic techniques for neck pain relief:
Flexion Distraction Chiropractic Technique
This technique uses a specific table to move the spine so that joints are moved out of their normal positions. This is done by slowly moving the head to elongate the spine, ease pressure on discs and surrounding muscles, allowing for better movement and range of motion. Chiropractors can also use this technique to release pressure on the nerves that may be causing the patient pain, allowing for long lasting relief from neck pain.
Patients who have highly developed muscles in their necks are more likely to experience pinched nerves due to cervical spondylosis or degenerative disc disease. Chiropractic care can help by relieving the pressure these patients experience in their necks to prevent further damage.
Patients who suffer from herniated or ruptured discs, which often cause pinched or inflamed nerves, find that this technique provides relief. Chiropractors use flexion-distraction to create space between the vertebrae and the discs, which releases pressure on surrounding nerves.
Chiropractors can also provide this technique with a cold pack that reduces inflammation in the neck’s soft tissues by reducing blood flow from injured or trapped tissues.
The Chiropractic Alignment Technique
This technique is used to place a patient in a position for more effective chiropractic manipulation. Chiropractors use this technique when they are trying to treat problems in the upper cervical spine, where case studies have shown that this technique has provided lasting relief from neck pain after just one session.
This technique is also gentle on patients because it does not force the joints into extreme positions, which may cause injury by placing too much stress on the neck. Chiropractors use this technique to gradually allow for greater movement and range of motion in the upper cervical spine. Chiropractic care sessions usually involve multiple adjustments over several weeks, allowing patients to experience lasting relief from their pain.
