VITAL NECK MOBILITY
The neck or cervical spine which supports a person's head on average weighs approximately 12 pounds. A variety of movements is expected by the human cervical spine. It is susceptible to pain and injury from excessive repetitive motion, falls and blows. A person's neck experiences regular everyday wear and tear, besides the trauma of such unusual events.
CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT CAN BRING RELIEF
Chiropractors may utilize a variety of technique treatments in order to provide different movements of the neck. The chiropractor makes a choice to use an appropriate technique to match the patient's condition. This applies not only to the cervical region but also to other spinal areas and varied joints of the body. As an example, a young athlete might receive a specific high-velocity spinal adjustment, whereas an older patient already having had recent surgery might receive a much gentler manipulation along with some applied traction.
RESEARCH SUPPORTS CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Many research projects have supported the use of chiropractic treatment. In 2012, the medical research journal by the name 'Spine' found that, "Back pain and neck pain were the most prevalent health problems for chiropractic consultations and the majority of users reported chiropractic helping a great deal with their health problem and improving overall health or well-being."
GOOD CERVICAL MOVEMENT IS IMPORTANT
Chiropractic doctors primarily focus on treatment at a deeper structural level where nerves are compressed. This mechanical approach of treatment deals with freeing the obstructions of joint movement. Chiropractic treatment is aimed at resolving these restrictions that can cause pain, numbness, and even a loss of strength.
NECK PROBLEMS AFFECT OTHER CONDITIONS
A problem in one area of the body such as the neck can have a wider affect in other areas. For instance, a person with a neck issue can experience problems in the arms and even the hands. Many times a person thought to have carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist finds resolution with chiropractic treatment to the neck. Another person can have pain between the shoulder blades or ribs. This often turns out to be helped by treatment in the lower neck.
