Neck/Back Pain

There are many causes of neck and back pain; but the ones we commonly see are due to the overuse/postural strain with misalignments of the vertebrae.  A small jamming or dysfunction of the joints in the spine (facet joints) can cause pain and muscle cramping by irritating the adjacent nerves.  Left untreated, these dysfunctions reduce the mobility in your spine and your back responds with muscle spasm, fibrositis or “trigger point” areas and local or referred pain.  


Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic adjustments properly align and release pressure from the joints—the characteristic “popping sensation” that so often accompanies relief!  We administer deep mobilization massage as a preparation to the chiropractic adjustments, so they release more thoroughly and allow the treatments to “settle in”.  If needed, MLS Laser therapy is used to relieve inflammation in the joints and the adjacent muscle pain for even better lasting relief.  

The rapid improvements we see with increased flexibility, elimination of muscle spasm is truly gratifying and makes these conditions easy and fun to treat.  These are really our bread-and-butter conditions and our patients keep us enthused to treat them for simple neck and back pain.  It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers.  I am always ready to demonstrate the exercise you need to counteract posture strains from working at the computer (flexion neck), everyday bending and lifting exertions.  If you are experiencing back or neck pain visit today.
