Neck pain is one of the most common conditions among people seeking medical care, with an estimated one out of every three adults complaining of related discomfort every year. There are myriad causes for neck pain, ranging from stress, to poor posture, to an injury brought on by an accident. It becomes especially prevalent as we age, and can be related to osteoarthritis.
Our chiropractor at the offices of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic has had years of training and experience working with people of all ages to provide relief and healing from neck pain. We offer a hands-on approach that utilizes a variety of safe, drug-free, non-invasive therapies. We provide a level of personal attention and service that is simply unmatched. Performing a physical and neurological examination, and then listening carefully to our patients to get a full picture of their health, medical history, and daily activities, allows us to determine the most effective treatment approach.
The neck, technically referred to as the cervical spine, has quite a workload. It supports our heads, which is no easy task: The human head weighs an average of 12 pounds, and our necks need to be flexible enough to move it around in almost every direction. Wear and tear from a wide range of ordinary, everyday movements can make even the strongest neck sore.
One of the most common approaches our chiropractor uses to relieve neck pain is an adjustment of the joints known as a cervical manipulation. This hands-on technique is geared toward increasing range of motion and mobility of the neck, while also relieving the pressure on adjoining muscles. Many of our patients say they experience a reduction in pain and soreness, and improvements in their ability to move their head.
