Falls, car accidents, sports injuries, heavy lifting or repetitive work are common causes of back & neck pain.
You’re in pain. The good news is you have options to treat it.
Falls, car accidents, sports injuries, heavy lifting or repetitive work are common causes of back pain. Often the vertebrae (spinal bones) are involved in this damage. Because the vertebrae protect the nerves that travel through the spinal column, even a small change in their position can significantly affect sensitive nerve tissue. A problem with a disc (fibrous cushion between each vertebra) can also cause pain through the buttock and legs as well as numbness and tingling in the legs. The good news is you have options to treat this pain.
Medicate with pain killers and muscle relaxants, which just numbs the body.
Physical Therapy, which can stress the malfunctioning joints.
Chiropractic, which will go straight to the source of the problem and correct it. By correcting the source and not just treating the symptoms your body can heal naturally.
If you have neck pain something is wrong. The health of your neck is very important, and when you feel pain in your neck it is a warning. Your body functions under the control of your central nervous system which starts in your brain and turns into the spinal cord running through the 7 bones in your neck into your spine. From there, the nerves branch out into your body between the bones in your neck and spine to control every system and organ in your body. Your neck is the gateway between your brain and the rest of your body. So, when your neck is out of alignment, it will affect the rest of your body. Some causes of neck pain are birth, accident, sports, work, sleeping wrong, arthritis, etc. Physical, emotional, or chemical stress can affect how often you have neck pain. For many of us the neck and shoulders are the “weakest link in the chain” and so stress shows up here. If neck pain goes untreated chronic muscle spasms set in, causing headaches.
Perform a spinal manipulation (adjustment) to improve spinal function and to alleviate irritation of the central nervous system.
Perform 1 or more chiropractic therapies.
Provide nutritional advice as well as exercise and stretching information.
