Non-Invasive Treatment for Neck Pain at Hudson Chiropractic Wellness Center
When you have a nagging case of neck pain, you probably can't focus on anything other than your symptoms. You're certainly not alone. About 30 percent of U.S. adults experience neck pain in any given year, and one-half of all neck pain cases take the form of chronic or recurring conditions. If you'd like to get your neck pain under control without going under the knife or relying on painkillers, visit our chiropractor at Hudson Chiropractic Wellness Center in Sarasota, FL.
The Underlying Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain often starts as part of an acute injury to the neck's vertebral joints, major nerves, muscles, and/or connective tissues. You can sustain damage to all of these structures at once if you suffer a whiplash injury. An auto accident, sports impact, or other collision that throws your head violently upward and downward can dislodge your cervical vertebrae, pinching nerves and tearing soft tissues in the process.
However, you don't have to experience an acute neck injury to develop neck pain. Simply getting older increases your risk for painful changes such as bulging discs, osteoarthritis in the cervical joints, and bone spurs that press against cervical nerve roots. Repetitive motions or unnatural postures can also leave your neck in a state of chronic inflammation and pain. Certain sports or occupations that force you to crane or twist your neck may produce tendinitis and muscle strain. Even "safe" activities such as office work can cause a painful issue known as text neck if you must constantly droop your head to view digital displays.
Chiropractic Adjustment, Laser Therapy, and Other Natural Solutions
As alarming as your neck pain may seem, you can most likely find relief through conservative, non-invasive treatment methods. Our chiropractor, Dr. Hudson, will examine your neck, evaluate your symptoms, and discuss your everyday activities and medical history with you to pinpoint the cause of your pain. If your neck has lost its natural alignment, chiropractic adjustments can help your cervical vertebral joints move more easily and comfortably. These adjustments may also relieve nerve compression, soft tissue strain, and disc problems.
Our chiropractor further employs other safe, non-surgical techniques as part of a personalized, whole-body approach to neck pain treatment. Your plan may include laser therapy, a painless method for helping neck tissues heal while easing pain and inflammation. You may also benefit from sessions with our acupuncturist and massage therapist.
