DO YOU HAVE NECK PAIN? A COMMON HEALTH COMPLAINT...
Is it hard to look over your shoulder? Is there a constant pulling or throbbing neck pain in East Providence RI, Pawtucket RI, Providence RI, or Central Falls RI? Do you notice a “grinding” sound as you turn your head? A popular response to neck pain is taking drugs to cover up the problem (aspirin, analgesics, pain pills) or treating its symptoms (muscle relaxers, massage, hot packs).
But neck pain isn't caused by a lack of aspirin or drugs!
REDUCING SYMPTOMS - CORRECTING THE CAUSE
The chiropractic approach to neck pain is to locate its underlying cause. This begins with a complete case history and thorough examination. Special attention is given to the structure and function of the spine, and its effect on the nervous system.
Is the proper spinal curve present? Are the nerve openings between each pair of spinal bones free and clear? Is the head balanced? Are the shoulders level? These and other considerations are used to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve the motion and position of spinal vertebrae.
With improved structure and function, neck pain often diminishes or totally disappears - without addictive drugs or harmful side effects!
One study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who received chiropractic care reported significant improvement in their neck function and a reduction in their neck pain whereas those taking painkillers did not.
