Neck Pain Treatment from Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc.
You don’t have to suffer in pain. At Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc., our experienced chiropractor provides a wide range of treatment options for those with neck pain or other forms of debilitating pain. Often, this type of pain is misunderstood or believed to simply “go away.” That’s rarely the case. We highly encourage anyone suffering from neck pain to schedule a consultation with Dr. G. Forrest Edwards, D.C., D.A.B.C.O.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain can occur for a variety of reasons. The most common causes of neck pain include:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Neck injury from a rear-end collision or sports injury (whiplash)
- Herniated discs
- Pinched nerves
- Overuse or misuse of the neck muscles
In some cases, neck pain can be the sign of an infection. If you have neck swelling or lymph node swelling, seek medical care right away.
What Neck Pain Treatment Can a Chiropractor Offer?
Neck pain treatment at Hoover Health & Wellness Center, Inc. focuses on providing you with relief from pain by addressing the underlying cause of that pain. We’ll provide you with a thorough examination, gather your medical record, and listen to you about the symptoms you feel. We can then offer a recommendation for treatment based on all of this information. Some types of treatment your chiropractor may suggest include:
Spinal Decompression: In this type of therapy, we aim to reduce the pressure on the spinal column using a motorized table. There is no pain to you, but the motion of the tablet helps to encourage less pressure on the discs between the vertebrae of your spine, reducing your pain.
Chiropractic Care: We may recommend the use of chiropractic adjustments. In these adjustments, we will apply gentle pressure to the impacted area of the spine, to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain there. Adjustments require the use of gentle force to properly align the spinal column to reduce pinching of the nerves.
Nutritional Support: We may recommend a fitness or nutritional program to you. Your body cannot heal properly without the help of the right nutrients. Our team will talk to you about the proper type of treatment for your needs.
We may also recommend corrective exercises, rehabilitation, especially if you’ve been in an auto accident and lifestyle changes as they are appropriate. Our goal is to help you to begin to feel better by providing a whole-body approach to wellness. The neck pain you feel may not be related directly to the muscles and ligaments in the neck, but to the health of your spinal column. Let our chiropractor and team help to uncover why you are suffering in and pain and what can be done about it.
