Whether it's due to an injury that never completely healed or a degenerative condition, chronic neck pain can seriously affect your quality of life. Fortunately, chiropractic care administered by our professionals can help manage and even alleviate your pain. Here are just a few ways that we may be able to help you.
Identifying the Source of Your Pain
It can be difficult to pinpoint the reason for chronic neck pain, especially if that reason is something like whiplash that may have occurred some time ago. People tend to ignore the effects of whiplash until it starts causing debilitating pain. In any case, it's essential to find the cause of your chronic pain. A skilled chiropractor can certainly do that by examining your neck and the connective tissues around your spine and by asking about your medical history.
Holistic Treatments for Your Chronic Pain
At Unruh Spine Centers, we have several options for treating your chronic neck pain. These include:
- Spinal adjustments
- Shockwave therapy
- Trigger point injections
Not all of these treatment options will be helpful or viable for everyone, but we will work closely with you to determine the treatments that will work best to alleviate your neck pain. These methods are all perfectly safe and most don't involve the use of any medications.
Nutrition and Self-Care Advice
Treatment for chronic neck pain doesn't end when your latest appointment does. We at Unruh Spine Centers believe that self-care is an important part of recovery and pain management, which is why we will provide you with nutrition advice as well as simple exercises that you can do at home.
