A pain in the neck? We use it as a saying, but neck pain can be debilitating and hard to resolve. Rest and pills only mask symptoms, and add side effects.
A Stockbridge Georgia chiropractic clinic can help with your neck pain. They will do a full examination to establish the cause of your neck pain – although chiropractors do not perform surgery or prescribe drugs they can and do take x-rays and may even order an MRI or CAT scan to eliminate narrowing of the spine (rare in the neck but dangerous), fractures, or arthritis – conditions which require a referral to another specialist.
However, it is much more common for neck pain to be caused by a misalignment of the cervical spine or by sprains or strains of the muscles of the neck. These can also cause chronic headaches.
A chiropractor can perform manual or instrument-assisted adjustments to realign the neck. They may also add massage to help with muscle problems, and rehabilitative exercises to restore range of motion. But many patients find a simple adjustment reduces pain and soreness and improves their ability to tilt and turn the head. Chiropractic care does not just reduce neck pain but also helps with range of motion.
The clinic will give you a personalized plan of care designed to get your neck back to its full, normal function. They may also look at the rest of your spine and they will approach things holistically – your body, after all, is a system. Medical doctors tend to isolate the neck pain and ignore other factors which might, after all, be contributing to the problem.
If you have a pain in your neck, then contact a good Stockbridge chiropractor. They can find out what is going on and make sure that you get relief from the pain and a speedy recovery.
