Neck Pain Treatment
Our necks experience a lot of wear and tear throughout our lives. Whether it's from poor posture, manual labor, sitting at a desk all day, or due to age, neck pain affects everyone at some point. That's why here at Johnson Chiropractic Center, we are dedicated to helping our Fayetteville patients naturally recover from acute and chronic neck pain without the need for any medications or invasive procedures. Our chiropractic care works to help alleviate your symptoms and prevent them from reoccurring.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
A variety of neck injuries may occur even when you are simply going about your daily routine. The most common neck injuries we see at our clinic include:
- Cervical Disc Injuries
- Cervical Sprains
- Degenerative Joint Syndrome
- Facet Joint Sprain
Even if your injury is not on this list, it is important that you see our chiropractor right away. We can diagnose your condition to ensure you receive the appropriate treatment.
How Chiropractors Diagnose Neck Pain
Our chiropractor will evaluate your neck and back to determine the origin of the pain. The examination will be thorough and may involve assessing your posture and your spinal alignment. We will also discuss your medical history and require imaging tests like x-rays or MRI scans for a complete assessment. This information will help our chiropractors design a customized treatment plan for your unique needs.
Your Customized Treatment Plan
A chiropractic treatment plan will help you feel your best, and no surgery is required. You may not even require pain medication if you receive regular chiropractic treatment to address your pain and the ongoing inflammation that develops. Spinal manipulation techniques may be part of your chiropractic care plan. Our chiropractor often uses the flexion-distraction technique, which is hands-on and gentle.
In some cases, our chiropractor will use specific spinal manipulation techniques to restore joint movement with gentle thrusts. Your neck pain treatment may also include other manual treatment options. For example, your chiropractor may manipulate the soft tissues or stretch the shoulders and neck to reduce pain and inflammation. Therapeutic massage and trigger point therapy also help alleviate pain and promote blood flow to the affected area.
