Chiropractic Care For Neck Pain

Posted on Feb 7, 2021


Got neck pain? Maybe it’s your posture… or the fact that you’re looking down at your phone all the time. Maybe you were in a car crash. Or perhaps you don’t have a decent pillow and the way you sleep is causing you chronic pain. Your pain could be due to a number of things, including facet joint sprain, whiplash, degenerative joint syndrome of the neck, cervical sprain injuries or cervical intervertebral disc injuries… all of which are big words chiropractors use, but you’re probably just thinking, “My neck hurts and I want the pain to go away!”

You’re in luck: chiropractors treat neck pain. They can use spinal manipulation or manual therapy to help you feel better. There’s the flexion-distraction technique, whereas a chiropractor uses his or her hands to do a spinal manipulation involving a pumping action on the intervertebral disc. Instead of using direct force this is a gentle way to relieve neck pain. There’s also an instrument-assisted manipulation technique involving a hand-held instrument that can apply force without thrusting into the spine. Or, perhaps, your chiropractor will use a gentle thrusting technique to help restore joint movement.

Chiropractors also use manual therapies to relieve neck pain. They’ll work on diagnosing and treating muscle tension. They might employ manual joint stretching and resistance techniques, therapeutic massage, and/or trigger point therapy in order to relieve tight, painful points on a muscle and/or relax tense muscles in general.

Neck pain can also be relieved using interferential electrical stimulation or ultrasound. Furthermore, your chiropractor will probably recommend therapeutic exercises you can do at home afterward, in order to help improve the range of motion in your neck.

In Forest Lake, Minnesota, the chiropractor to visit for neck pain relief is Dr. Gerard at Lakewoods Chiropractic. Use the contact page to make an appointment: https://lakewoodschiropractic.com/contact-us/

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
