chronic neck painThere are over 60,000 licensed Chiropractors throughout the United States and yet, only 8 percent of adults and 3 percent of children have received Chiropractic treatment.

While this figure still exceeds the use of more alternative methods of therapy like acupuncture and yoga, it still does not offer a realistic idea for how effective Chiropractic techniques are at resolving a plethora of conditions that range from common headaches to Fibromyalgia.

Considering the type of focus Chiropractic treatment brings to each individual patient, where every prescribed technique is formatted to align directly with the patient’s unique body structure and posture, it makes sense that so many people visit our Chiropractor offices in Snellville to relieve conditions like chronic neck pain.

One of the more common conditions that our fully-accredited Chiropractors treat, neck pain can derive from a variety of sources that range from car accidents to slip and fall incidents at work.

Just how neck pain is treated completely depends on the unique situation of each individual.

However, a broad understanding of how our team relieves neck pain in Snellville patients is important to know, so that you know what to expect and how to prepare for your next visit with us.

How To Treat Neck Pain

In general, Chiropractors throughout the country tend to operate primarily with their hands when it comes to treating joint, nerve, and muscle pain. Adjustments are intended to loosen up the areas of the body that are sore and/or preventing blood flow from transferring to particular parts of the body in an effective manner.

To treat neck pain caused by muscle spasms and pinched nerves, your Chiropractor might recommend a neck adjustment called cervical manipulation, to loosen up the joints found in the cervical vertebrae of your neck. This also requires the use of your Chiropractor’s hands, as they will need to twist and snap your neck in a sudden, controlled motion in order to properly realign your vertebrae.
