The first thing that comes to mind for many people who are asked about chiropractic care is treatment of lower back pain. That is not without good reason–lower back pain is a prevalent problem, and chiropractic care is ideally suited not only to relieving the pain, but to getting to the underlying problem and treating it so that lower back pain has a much lower chance of returning. The lower back is one part of the spinal system, but it is by no means the only part. So, it is not the only part of the spinal system that can be strained and/or injured. Caron Chiropractic provides relief of pain in the entire length of the spine.
An aspect of spinal discomfort that most people seem content to just deal with, at least for a time, is neck pain. They tend to respond by saying something like, “I just slept wrong.” That may be accurate, but “just sleeping wrong” does not mean that the pain is any less severe or any less likely to persist for a longer period of time. Some neck pain will correct itself, but the mere fact that you experienced neck pain after a night’s sleep indicates that the problem could return.
Chiropractic Care For Neck Pain Relief
That same kind of neck pain can occur at other times and for other reasons, of course. You might find yourself doing something as innocent and uncontroversial as turning your head to speak to a friend and suddenly feeling a pop that results in searing pain. Chiropractic adjustment/spinal rehabilitation would be an advisable topic to explore with us, especially if you have experienced that phenomenon more than once.
Treating Neck Pain And Whiplash
Whiplash is arguably the most famous cause of neck pain. It is most often associated with the sudden jerking movement of car accidents. But whiplash can occur as a result of any sudden movement that causes injury to the upper spine and/or the muscles that support the neck and head. Severe whiplash can be every bit as debilitating as severe lower back injuries. Caron Chiropractic has successfully treated many clients who live or work in the St Paul area with whiplash injuries.
Most of us do not fully appreciate how frequently we move our heads side to side and up and down, at least not until something prevents us from doing so without pain. After experiencing a neck injury, such as whiplash, it is nearly impossible not to appreciate the feeling of moving our heads and necks without pain.
