Chiropractors are uniquely qualified to help identify the root causes of your pain and develop a care plan that focuses on returning you to the activities you love. Here’s how:
Your chiropractor will first conduct an in-depth evaluation of your medical history, current symptoms, and lifestyle to pinpoint what’s causing your pain. Once they understand the specific reason you’re experiencing this pain, they’ll tailor your treatment program to address this issue.
Chiropractors will use their knowledge and training to choose treatment techniques, also known as modalities, to treat your pain or mobility restrictions. Common modalities chiropractors use include:
These techniques help you restore movement and reduce pain in joints and muscles.
Based on your specific lifestyle, level of ability, and injury, your chiropractor will provide tailored stretches and exercises to improve the strength of your muscles in and around your neck and shoulder region. Improving flexibility and strength in the neck will decrease pain and allow you to maintain better posture, which will reduce stress on the cervical spine. This added support will improve posture to help decrease pain.
Understanding how your pain originated is a crucial component in your recovery plan. The neck and spine are extremely sensitive areas, and the mechanics of your everyday activities can contribute to the pain returning. Your chiropractor will ensure you’re correctly participating in the exercises to avoid strain and injury, and will be able to quickly adjust techniques if any are causing additional pain.
Don’t let neck pain stand in your way. Embracing a comprehensive approach to your healthcare, your chiropractor can create a personalized treatment plan to diminish your neck pain and keep you moving forward.
