Chiropractic Care Improves Cervical Functions and Structures

Chiropractic Care Improves Cervical Functions and Structures
Overview

Studies have shown that over half of the world’s population will experience an episode of neck pain at some point in their lifetime. People who are suffering from spinal pain experience more effective relief from chiropractic care than the use of drugs.

People experiencing neck pain often turn to chiropractic care for help. Chiropractic neck adjustment, called cervical manipulation, loosens the joints of the cervical vertebrae in the neck and this can reduce pain caused by pinched nerves and muscle spasms.

Causes of Neck Pain

Many everyday activities can cause neck pain. Watching TV, using mobile devices, reading a book or falling asleep in an improper position. Some people might even report feeling neck pain when they are emotionally stressed at work or at home. Most people get neck pain or shoulder stiffness due to accidents, injuries, falls, repeated bad posture or ergonomics that have caused the vertebrae to shift out of alignment.

Text Neck Syndrome

Text neck is a modern age term coined by US chiropractor Dr. DL Fishman to describe repeated stress injury and pain in the neck resulting from excessive watching or texting on handheld devices over a sustained period of time. It has become a common problem with people typically sticking their neck forward and placing their head in front of their shoulders to use their phone for texting. People who hold this position for a long period of time will find their posture degenerating and put the natural curve of their neck at risk of flattening or inverting over time.

Most people crane their head forward when using mobile devices. This places an unusual weight on the cervical spine. The illustration shows the effective weight on the spine as forward tilt increases.

Decompression Therapy
Nonsurgical procedure intended to relieve pressure in the targeted segment of the spine by gently stretching it to create a negative pressure in it. This stretch will allow herniated/bulging discs to retract and promote blood flow back to the discs to improve recovery. Decompression Therapy has been known to be effective for conditions such as slipped discs, sciatica, disc degeneration and nerve compression.

If you require more information, contact us and ask one of our chiropractors.
If the underlying cause of the problem is misalignment (subluxation) of the spinal bones in the neck, cervical neck adjustments can be effective. The chiropractor has years of practice of spinal adjustments and is experienced in using the best technique(s) to adjust the neck safely and effectively. There are different chiropractic techniques for the chiropractor to choose from. If a patient is not comfortable with a certain type of treatment, the chiropractor is able to accommodate a different method of treatment.
Chiropractic care is specific to each patient. A physical examination as well as radiographic examination (x-rays) alert the chiropractor to any type of underlying factors such as degeneration, which complicate a patient’s case. Recommendations will be made specific to each case, as each patient is different. Chiropractors are always concerned with the long-term spinal health of each patient. Their job is to keep you as healthy as possible all the time!
