Neck Pain Relief
Neck pain, or a stiff neck, is typically characterized by soreness and difficulty moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head to the side.
Neck pain may also be accompanied by a headache, shoulder pain and/or arm pain, or cause the individual to turn the entire body as opposed to the neck when trying to look sideways or backward.
The neck is extremely sensitive and treatment options depend on the nature of the injury or deterioration. Neck pain often requires a “measured” approach.
Often problems in the cervical spine can lead to neck pain and/or stiffness.
If you have neck pain lasting more than one week, it is considered chronic and should be addressed with treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments are effective, but are best administered using an adjusting instrument. An adjusting instrument, when used by an experienced physician, is a gentle muscle stimulator. Traction and spinal decompression can also prove helpful. Home exercises and physical therapy can also assist in relieving neck pain.
Some Regenerative Medicine treatments may help, but extensive diagnostic assessments must be made first, to determine the nature of the injury, or pain.
