Treating Neck Pain with Floro Chiropractic
Neck Pain is one of the worst types of pain because it can cause headaches and other pains throughout the body. When your neck is in pain, your mobility will likely suffer and you'll feel more tension throughout your back and other parts of the body. It can make just getting through the day an incredible challenge.
Waking up with a stiff neck, feeling shooting or stabbing pains after an accident or experiencing some type of tingling or numbness in your neck probably means you have a neck injury. Suffering from this type of pain isn't necessary. Chiropractic care not only relieves neck pain, but also treats the underlying cause.
Neck Pain Relief from Chiropractic Care
Spinal adjustments are one common type of chiropractic care used to relieve and treat neck pain. Through spinal manipulation, the neck pain can be relieved due to re-aligning vertebrae in the back or neck. In addition, this type of treatment will help to relieve the tension on nerves and muscles, which may be the cause of your neck pain.
Another common treatment for neck pain is trigger point massage therapy. At Floro Chiropractic we use this treatment in conjunction with spinal adjustments to help relieve the tension and relax the muscles involved in causing the pain. Through both of these chiropractic treatments, you can achieve natural relief of neck pain, along with giving your body the ability to heal.
Rehabilitative therapies such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and micro current therapy promote pain relief and accelerate tissue healing. These treatments are also often used in conjunction with our chiropractic adjustments.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
The list of causes for neck pain may be a mile long. No matter what's causing the pain, it needs to be treated. Leaving neck pain untreated could lead to major issues, more pain and many other issues. If you've been involved in an accident, woken up with a stiff neck or have suffered neck pain from another cause, make sure it's treated as soon as possible.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
- Sports injuries
- Auto accidents
- Slip or fall accidents
- Moving your next too quickly
- Improper exercising or lifting
- Poor posture
- Bad sleep position
If you're suffering from any type of neck pain, seek treatment immediately. Chiropractic care has the ability to relieve the pain and help heal the root cause of your neck pain.
Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash
One of the most severe types of neck pain comes in the form of whiplash. This type of pain is often caused by an auto accident or a sports injury. Whiplash happens when your head is forced away from your body too quickly and extensive strain is put on your neck.
While immediate pain may come with whiplash, it's possible for the pain to show up weeks or even months later. Whether it was caused by a car accident, a sports injury or another incident, if you're suffering from whiplash, you need to seek treatment immediately.
Chiropractic adjustments and trigger point massage therapy have been proven to help relieve the pain felt from whiplash and release the tension. Whether you require short or long-term treatment, getting proper care can help minimize or prevent any future neck issues.
"I was involved in an automobile accident last spring. The accident left me with sharp daily headaches, sharp neck pain with very limited movement, mid-back stiffness and my lower back had gotten to the point where I was having difficulty standing at work for more than an hour. My mother referred me to Dr. Floro.
I saw my X-rays and I wanted to correct the damage done from the accident and to minimize scar tissue. I am receiving regular adjustments and the improvements I've made to date have been great. I don't experience any headaches and my friends have commented on my overall better moods. The accident had caused my depression which has amazingly cleared up with my neck adjustments.
Now my neck and back are almost pain free. I'm glad I took the time and effort to keep on a regular schedule with my appointments. My chiropractic treatments have made a world of difference. Thank you Dr. Floro"
