What Causes Neck Pain?
There are many causes of neck pain, including:
- Auto accidents
- Cancer, meningitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases
- Soft tissue injuries, including slips and falls, sports injuries, and other incidents
- Neck vertebrae bone spurs
- Herniated spinal discs
- Nerve compression in the neck
- Damage to the vertebrae, cartilage, and joints from conditions like osteoarthritis
- Muscle strains from common everyday activities
Chiropractic Techniques Used to Treat Neck Pain
Your chiropractor will perform some diagnostic tests and perhaps take some x-rays to determine the cause of your neck pain. The method of treatment varies according to your condition and the severity of the pain. Here are some chiropractic techniques you may receive while under the care of your chiropractor:
- Adjustments and manipulations: Both adjustments and manipulations involve a chiropractor using their hands to realign spinal vertebrae. This will be used to treat lower back pain as well as neck pain if the cause is spine-related.
- Spinal decompression: Spinal decompression is a technique that makes use of an inversion table. As the patient lies on this table, the spine is tractioned, thus reducing pressure on nerves in the back and neck. This will often improve protruding spinal discs.
- The Pettibon cervical technique: Created by Dr. Burl Pettibon, the Pettibon cervical technique uses the Pettibon Spinal Model for better posture and less pain. By readjusting the spine according to gravity and making other lifestyle changes (like diet and nutrition), patients often report a better quality of life.
