How Chiropractors Can Help Neck Pain

by

Chiropractors are well known for treating low back pain but research has shown that conservative care such as chiropractic is very effective for the treatment of neck pain as well. As the temperatures continue to drop neck injuries are on the rise. Colder weather causes the postural muscles on the neck and shoulders to tighten up causing muscle spasms and neck pain. Increased activity, holiday stress, long hours at work, or even a bad night’s sleep can be the root of generalized neck pain and can even lead to headaches. Chiropractic care uses gentle manipulation to restore range of motion in the neck and myofascial release, electric muscle stimulation, and trigger point therapy to reduce muscle spasm. Specific neck and shoulder stretches can be prescribed for use at home to speed up recovery and decrease the chances of it returning.
