The bones in your neck are identified as the cervical spine. That part of the spine consists of seven bones known as vertebrae. There are also ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves between the vertebrae are six spinal discs, and these components of the neck support the head. As the head weighs about 12 pounds, the cervical spine is vulnerable to spinal conditions and injuries that cause neck pain, discomfort, and loss of range of motion. Knowing what our chiropractor can do for you at Chiropractic USA in Oro Valley, AZ, can help prevent neck pain from recurring.
Neck Pain Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common questions that our patients have about their neck conditions and injuries.
Q. Are there any common causes of neck pain?
A. Yes, there are. These include motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls, sports injuries, poor work ergonomics, and bad posture.
Q. How can chiropractic care and treatment reduce my neck pain?
A. Our chiropractor can reduce or even eliminate your neck pain with any number of chiropractic techniques known as spinal adjustments. These adjustments are painless and gentle and intended to realign the cervical spine to the position that it's intended to be in. Cervical spine misalignment causes neck pain in the overwhelming majority of our patients.
Q. Are there any other types of therapies that your chiropractor uses for neck pain?
A. Yes, there are. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor will likely also include massage therapy and myocardial release for neck muscles, along with specialized home exercises to stretch cervical muscles and make them stronger.
Q. Is chiropractic safe for treatment of neck pain?
A. Yes, it is. Chiropractic treatment doesn't involve using any potentially dangerous or addictive medications, and it doesn't involve surgery either. Neck pain patients who've enrolled in clinical trials report significant improvement from a chiropractor's care and treatment.
Q. How many visits do I need to make with your chiropractor for my neck pain?
A. Much depends on the nature and extent of your injury or condition. A patient with a whiplash injury from an auto accident will likely require more extensive care and treatment than somebody with a pinched nerve and sore neck.
