Eliminate Neck Pain with Chiropractic Care
Suffering from a Neck Injury? Our Medical Team can Help!
Neck pain is a necessary reason to visit the doctor.
Whether you experience whiplash in a Car Accident or have chronic pain due to a condition like arthritis, The Florida Spine and Injury Clinics can assist in your relief.
Despite being such a prevalent injury, neck pain never seems to be fully solved.
Thousands of medications and expensive surgeries are conducted to attempt to solve neck injuries and their nagging effects.
However, for our Personal Injury Patients, we provide noninvasive methods to alleviate neck pain and replace it with a strong peace of mind.
Causes of Neck Pain
Accidents and Injuries
An unexpected, forced movement of the head and neck in any direction followed by the "rebound" in the opposite direction is called whiplash.
Other areas than just the neck can be deeply affected such as joints, ligaments, muscles, and discs.
The most common source of high-impact neck injuries like this is car accidents.
There are certain degenerative disorders that can aid in developing chronic neck pain.
These disorders can include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
All three of these examples directly target the spine and, along with neck pain, can produce numbness and tingling in the legs or arms.
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
Rather than high-intensity random moments or inevitable aging that constitutes neck pain, daily life habits and factors can lead to neck pain as well.
The key is spinal balance.
Particular factors that can attribute to disrupting spinal balance include:
- Poor posture
- Emotional stress and tension
These factors can cause the neck to bend in irregular ways to compensate the spinal balance disruption. Overall pain and stiffness are very common due to these lifestyle habits.
Whether or not it can be easily changed, home, work, and recreational environments play a hand in increasing neck pain.
Chiropractic Treatment of Neck Pain
It does not matter if your neck pain stems from a Personal Injury or from natural aging, at The Florida Spine and Injury Centers we have successful treatments that can add relieve and comfort back to your life.
A few 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 chiropractor can perform a manual adjustment of your cervical spine.
By lightly applying force to the joints in your spine, the chiropractor is able to release pressure by aligning your spine.
This is a noninvasive method with very low risk, yet incredibly high satisfaction rates.
With physical rehabilitation, you will undergo stretches and therapy to stabilize your muscles and rehabilitate the soft tissues. These rehab methods are fantastic for back and neck pain.
One particular 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.
Posture and overall comfort will be improved, which will then ultimately lower your neck pain.
The purpose of an ultrasound is to send soundwaves that micro-vibrate and heat, thus heal, your soft tissues.
Along with helping the healing process, ultrasound is also successful in alleviating stiffness and pain in patients suffering neck soreness from a personal injury.
If you have been injured in a personal injury or car accident, do not wait to contact The Florida Spine and Injury Clinics to relieve your neck pain and take your first step on the road to recovery.
