Neck pain in Spokane is extremely common, but receiving care that fixes the problem is rare for most patients. Doctors of chiropractic have been successfully treating neck pain for more than 100 years. Chiropractic care is successful in most cases, because its application is working at the source of the problem. We hope this article provides you with the information you are looking for.
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain
Treating the cause of neck pain is impossible if you do not know the source of the problem. Doctors of chiropractic utilize diagnostic testing and tools to find the source. By doing this, they are able the find the source and appropriately treat the cause.
There are many complex structures in the human body, including the spine, but the spine is just as important as it is complex. Your spine protects your spinal cord which is the source of every nerve in your body. A misalignment also referred to as a subluxation. Subluxations can create pressure on nerves, and can cause muscles to tighten and spasm. The tightening, although uncomfortable and sometimes painful, is an important defensive response that your body uses to protect you from further damage.
Unfortunately a lot of people in Spokane have spinal conditions that go untreated because they are unaware of them. A popular choice people make is to try to wait for the pain to go away. It is possible for that to happen, but what they do not understand is that the underlying problem is almost always still there. If the problem is left alone for too long then surgery may be the only option.
