Dealing with a Neck Injury? Our Gainesville Medical Team can Help!
Any significant neck pain is more than enough reason to seek medical treatment.
Whether you experience whiplash in a Car Accident or have an existing chronic pain, The Florida Spine and Injury Clinics in Gainesville can assist in your relief.
Despite being such a prevalent injury, neck pain never seems to be fully solved.
Thousands of expensive surgeries and medication strategies are conducted to attempt to solve neck injuries and their prolonged effects.
However, for our patients in Gainesville, we provide noninvasive methods to treat neck pain.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Auto Accidents and other Personal Injuries
An unexpected, forced movement of the head and neck in any direction followed by the sequential "rebound" motion in the opposite direction is known as whiplash.
Other areas than just the neck can be deeply affected such as joints, muscles, discs, and ligaments.
The most common source of these type of high-impact neck injuries are car accidents.
There are certain degenerative disorders that unfortunately assist in developing chronic and consistent neck pain.
These disorders include:
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
All three of these examples directly target the spine and, along with the neck pain you experience, can produce tingling and numbness in the arms or legs.
The loss of joint movement and misaligned discs adds extra strain to the spine and other joints which can induce aches and pains in other locations, such as the neck.
Daily Life Factors
Other than high-intensity sporadic moments or inevitable aging that can lead to neck pain, daily life habits and factors can result in neck pain.
The key is to achieve spinal balance.
Factors that attribute to disrupting your spinal balance include:
- Poor posture
- Emotional stress and tension
These factors can cause the neck to bend in unnatural ways to compensate for the spinal balance disruption. Overall, stiffness and pain are common due to these particular lifestyle habits.
Home, work, and recreational environments play a critical role in increasing neck pain.
Gainesville Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment
The Florida Spine and Injury Center in Gainesville successfully treats neck pain and will add comfort and relief back to your life.
Some of these treatments include:
- Adjustment of the cervical spine
- Physical Rehabilitation
Adjustment of the Cervical Spine
If you hurt your neck in a Car Accident, a Gainesville Chiropractor can perform a manual adjustment of your cervical spine.
By applying light and quick force to the joints in your spine, your chiropractor is able to release pressure by re-aligning your spine.
Adjustments are a noninvasive method with very low risk, yet high satisfaction rates for neck pain, as well as back pain.
With physical rehabilitation, you will undergo therapy sessions and stretches to stabilize your muscles and rehabilitate all your soft tissues. These methods can also assist with back pain.
One common exercise is the Lumbar Stabilization Exercise.
This exercise assists in finding the patients "neutral" spine, which is technically the most comfortable position of the spine.
Physical rehabilitation can help with posture and overall comfort, as well.
An ultrasound sends sound waves that heat and micro-vibrate to heal injured soft tissues areas.
Along with helping the healing process, ultrasound is also successful in alleviating stiffness and pain in Gainesville patients suffering neck soreness from a car accident or personal injury.
