Neck Pain Treatment With Chiropractic
Neck pain is an extremely common condition. Research shows that up to 80% of adults will deal with neck pain at some point throughout their lives. It’s tempting to reach for a bottle of Advil when neck pain strikes, but overuse of pain relievers can have adverse effects. At Taschler Spine & Rehab in Fairfax, VA, our expert doctors offer chiropractic and spinal decompression treatments to treat your pain naturally.
Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain has a myriad of causes, partially due to the complex arrangement of nerves and muscles the neck contains. One of the most common culprits for neck pain is poor posture. Slouching over a computer for hours a day is a recipe for disaster, while looking down at a phone for extended periods of time can exacerbate tension and discomfort. Other sources of neck pain include improper injury rehabilitation, prolonged sitting, and lack of regular spinal alignments.
No matter the cause of your neck pain, chiropractic and spinal decompression therapy can relieve your symptoms.
How Chiropractic and Spinal Decompression Can Help
The most common treatments for neck pain are medications and surgeries. However, overuse of pain relievers like ibuprofen can cause damage to the stomach lining and increase the risk of heart attacks. Surgeries can be physically invasive and quite costly, not to mention time consuming, as many procedures involve a long recovery period.
Through chiropractic and spinal decompression treatments, patients can alleviate their neck pain without the aid of surgery or medications.
The Benefits of Our Treatments
Chiropractic treatments are designed to correct spinal misalignments. By gently pushing your spine back into alignment, our doctors relieve the excess pressure on your nerves. This decreases inflammation and discomfort. Spinal decompression achieves similar goals. The procedure utilizes traction to gently reduce the pressure on your spinal discs.
Our doctors will complete a full consultation on your first visit and use the results to create a customized treatment plan that will best suit your needs.
