Relieve the Pain in Your Neck
Did you know that your head weighs between 10 and 12 pounds, yet when you tilt it to look down, for example, at your phone, it can put up to 60 pounds of strain on your neck?
Your cervical spine works hard to support your head all day long, and your daily routine can take a toll, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in your neck and shoulders.
At Enos Chiropractic Center, your chiropractor can restore function and relieve discomfort from neck pain, whether the source is an injury, your posture, or simply your day-to-day habits. We want to free you from pain and get you back to living without limitations.
Understanding Neck Pain
Your cervical spine (your neck) comprises nerves, bones, joints, and muscles. Irritation of a nerve in your neck can cause pain and stiffness that radiates through your shoulder, arm, hand, or head. You might be dealing with headaches or back pain at the same time as an aching neck.
Neck pain is often related to a strain or sprain of muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your neck. It can come on suddenly from an injury or develop more slowly due to repetitive motions or poor posture.
How Can a Chiropractor Help With Neck Pain?
Our goal at your first appointment is to learn what you’re going through and whether we can help relieve your neck pain. In your initial consultation, your chiropractor will discuss your symptoms, ask about your lifestyle and work (which can both contribute to neck pain), and talk about your goals for treatment.
Next, your doctor will perform a chiropractic examination, testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend, and other standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations. That said, we will not do anything during your assessment without your consent.
Sometimes, we’ll take X-rays as part of our full evaluation, so we can rule out more serious conditions, including anything that may make a chiropractic adjustment unsuitable for you.
Sharing Our Recommendations
During your appointment, your chiropractor will give you a report of findings to answer 3 key questions:
- Can you help me?
- What do you recommend that I do to get better?
- How much is it going to cost?
If we believe we can help, we’ll explain our recommended treatment plan. If you have a condition that requires care from other providers, the doctor will let you know.
Treatment at the First Appointment
Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the end of the appointment. This may include spinal adjustments (including spinal decompression), physiotherapy treatments, and/or soft tissue therapies.
Treatment is interactive, so you can always express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment or ask questions about the procedure.
Ongoing Care & Wellness Program
Finally, we’ll provide you with a wellness program to follow at home that may include stretches, exercises, the application of heat or ice, advice on developing and maintaining a healthy posture, and changes to your lifestyle that can all support your recovery from neck pain.
Chiropractic works best as a phased approach, beginning by addressing pain, progressing to corrective care, and finally becoming about maintaining wellness through a series of appointments. Learn more about what to expect from chiropractic care.
