Touchstone Rehabilitation & Health Center - Chiropractic Neck Pain Rehabilitation
If you’re suffering from neck pain, a chiropractor can provide you with nonsurgical treatments to help get rid of the problem. Neck pain may be caused by conditions such as facet joint sprain, cervical sprains, mild cervical disk injury, whiplash, or degenerative joint syndrome.
Chiropractors evaluate your neck pain by examining your entire spine. While you may only feel pain on your neck (cervical spine), the neck pain you are feeling may also be affecting the middle of your back (thoracic) or lower back (lumbar). Our chiropractor, Dr. Angelo DiMaggio, is able to do a thorough investigation, make a diagnosis, and suggest the best treatment option.
Our chiropractor will also check the way to walk to observe your posture and spinal alignment, as well as check your neck for restricted movement. Along with a physical exam, they will look into your medical history and, if necessary, order X-rays or MRI scans to accurately diagnose what is causing the neck pain. This allows them to customize the treatment plan to your needs.
A chiropractor can rule out conditions that may require surgery. If you require surgery they can refer you to a spine surgeon who can help.
Chiropractors use a combination of manual therapy, spinal manipulations, as well as other techniques to treat neck pain. Some of the most common techniques chiropractors use to treat neck pain includes flexion-distraction technique, localized spinal manipulation, therapeutic massage, and trigger point therapy. Other commonly used techniques include therapeutic exercises, low frequency (inferential) electrical stimulation, ultrasound, soft-tissue therapy and manipulation with the use of a hand-held instrument. The chiropractor will advise the best treatment or combination of treatments based on your diagnosis. They will also advise you on how long the treatment may likely take.
