Life can be a pain in the neck but there is no reason that you should have to live with neck pain when relief can be found at Caron Chiropractic Clinic, P.A. Treatments can be customized to target the underlying cause of the neck pain and dysfunction. Some of most common causes for neck pain include whiplash, degenerative conditions, sprains, strains and tension. Chiropractors often take a very conservative approach to managing and eliminating neck pain and discomfort. Often chiropractic treatments for neck pain focus on gentle techniques to restore proper alignment, mobility and range of motion. Chiropractic care works without drugs or surgery.
During an initial chiropractic visit your chiropractor may ask questions about when your neck pain symptoms began, current status of pain, stiffness or discomfort and what treatments you have tried. Your licensed chiropractor has training on musculoskeletal and neurological aspects of neck issues. A doctor of chiropractic will probably check your reflexes and muscle strength as well as nerve changes. Additional tests could be ordered to rule out a neck fracture or disease for cause of the neck pain symptoms.
