The Bottom Line
A lot of patients we see and people we know do not realize there is a solution to neck pain. This solution is recommended by most major health care organizations; however, no physicians talk about it. The solution can work better than medication and is far less risky than injections or surgery. So why hasn’t the world fully embraced it?
That’s a good question.
Why It Matters
What is this solution, you ask? Chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments and manipulations are the neck pain solution that physicians haven’t been talking about… until now!
Adjustments are meant to be gentle and safe. They can actually help reduce neck pain, improve how you move and even positively influence your brain and nervous system!
Chiropractors focus on the structure and function of your spine. When your spine functions optimally, your body is in a better position to heal itself. Yes, you read that correctly. Your body has the incredible ability to heal itself without the need for medication.
Don’t let a disc herniation make you believe that you’re too far gone for chiropractic care, either. Research shows that nearly 80% of people with a disc herniation in their neck have found relief with spinal adjustments!
The Science Behind It All
- Drugs and surgery usually aren’t recommended for the care of neck pain due to their high risks and side-effects
- The Cleveland Clinic and American College of Physicians supports chiropractic adjustments for the care of neck issues
- Spinal adjustments are shown to provide more relief than steroid injections for neck pain caused by disc herniation
Here at Kaizo Health, we believe that the first step to find relief from neck pain is to discover the root cause. For every patient we see, we perform a full examination to identify any structural issues in the neck and spine. Once we diagnose the root causes, we design a treatment plan customized to the patient’s needs. The overall goal of every treatment plan we design is to help improve movement and reduce, if not eliminate, pain.
