Chiropractic care is a non-surgical treatment option that may help reduce your neck pain and related symptoms. Your neck pain chiropractor will evaluate your spine as a whole because other regions of the neck (cervical), mid back and low back may be affected as well. Before deciding which approach to try for your pain, the neck pain chiropractor will do a thorough examination to diagnose the specific cause of your neck pain.
Your neck pain chiropractor will also do physical and neurological exams to observe your posture, range of motion, and physical condition, noting movement that causes pain. Chiropractors often treat neck pain with neck manipulations. In some cases, these neck adjustments—along with exercises—may work better for neck pain. You may want to try a chiropractor if you had neck pain for a long time that is not due to an injury. This type of neck pain may respond to chiropractic care.
In Miami and across America, the most common neck pain issues stem from our sedentary and technology-heavy lifestyle. Your neck pain chiropractor may use a combination of spinal manipulation, manual therapy, and other techniques as part of your treatment plan for your neck pain.
Your neck pain chiropractic treatment plan will depend on your particular situation. Patients who experience neck pain due to car accidents, sports injuries or arthritis may need long-term care, whereas patients who experience neck pain from postural issues or a pinched nerve may only need short-term care. Neck pain chiropractors use their hands to manipulate the neck and place the vertebrae back into alignment, combatting the effects of posture and other factors.
