Chiropractic: Got a Pain in the Neck?

Is it hard to look to the right or left? Is there a constant throbbing in your neck or head? Do you notice a “grinding” sound when turning your head?

Neck Pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit their chiropractic or medical doctor.  A common response to neck pain is taking pain pills or muscle relaxers. However, neck pain isn’t caused by a lack of medication!

Studies show that one of the most effective treatments for neck pain is chiropractic adjustments. A chiropractor can find the underlying cause of your neck pain.  Chiropractors use specific chiropractic adjustments to restore proper function of the neck.  With improved function, neck pain is often diminished or totally disappears, without drugs and their potential side effects.

Other remedies for neck pain include heat/ice and massage.  While these therapies can do a lot to decrease neck pain (and we highly recommend them!), they will not actually correct the underlying problem.  We recommend them in addition to receiving adjustments by your chiropractor.

You don’t have to live with Neck Pain!  Look into chiropractic today and see what it can to do help you!
