Neck pain- better outcomes proven with chiropractic treatment again!

By Dr. Dan Van Roon • January 26th, 2012

Your neck is stiff, sore and locked up. Sleeping comfortably is a major feat and it takes an hour just to get moving in the morning. Should you call your doctor for a prescription, or maybe try a new pillow? In your case, a Chiropractor may hold the right key.

In addition to supporting the body’s innate healing processes, a bonus effect of Chiropractic adjustments is the alleviation of neck pain. A recent study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine verified that after 12 weeks, patients who used a Chiropractor and exercise were more than twice as likely to be pain free compared to those who relied on medicineā€¦ and no side effects!

You wouldn’t use chemicals to burn down your front door if you had the right key to open it in the first place, so why do that to your body? When it comes to unlocking a stubborn, painful neck it’s best to seek the care of a master locksmith (a Chiropractor) whose care is precise and backed by research. In the long run you’ll save time, money and frustration using the right key for the job.

A Chiropractors’ work is to add pressure to various parts of the neck and stretches the neck to help cure neck pain. In Ultrasound, a gentle heat from the sound waves goes deep to the tissues. This procedure enhances the circulation of blood and hence results in stiffness, reduction of the muscle pain and bulging. In Inferential Electrical Stimulation, a low frequency electrical current goes through the affected area which then induces the muscles and reduces acute and continuous pain. The mobility is increased by the heat that is yielded in the electrical current. The tightness and pain are alleviated. The natural pain killers in the body are produced more with the help of electrical current sent to the affected places. In order to improve the health, chiropractors encourage prevention. Like it would be really good if by learning how to keep a good posture and mechanics, a person can avoid having neck pain. A chiropractor looks at the person and his lifestyle and not just the pain.
