How Chiropractic Can Help
Here at Clearview Family Chiropractic, we want to first determine what primary factors are causing your neck pain through a proper examination and structural radiographs (if necessary) to locate the underlying cause of your back pain rather than masking the secondary symptoms. One common cause for neck pain is abnormal positioning of the spinal bones in the neck. A misalignment or subluxation in this region can affect the muscles, ligaments and tendons or even more importantly, cause irritation and inflammation to the surrounding nerves creating a disruption in the nerve pathways between the brain and body leading to many different types of secondary symptoms of neck pain. If it is determined that we can help you, we utilize gentle and specific Chiropractic adjustments as well as educating on exercises, stretches and proper postural techniques to help align the spine which can aid in pain reduction and more importantly allow the nervous system to function optimally. Depending on the severity of the condition and taking previous ailments and other limiting factors into consideration often times our patients begin to see results in just a few visits however it is important to maintain a healthy spine as it is the major protection mechanism for the central nervous system which is vital to ones overall health.
