Neck pain can make even the simplest of movements, such as tying your shoes or opening a cabinet above the sink, excruciatingly difficult. It can also lead to migraines, and neck and shoulder immobility.
Some patients can pinpoint the cause of their neck pain — an auto accident or sports injury. Often, however, neck pain develops through poor posture or repetitive stress. In such cases, it is best to turn to Orem and Lehi’s trusted chiropractic clinic for your neck pain.
Why Turn to Chiropractic Treatment for Your Neck Pain?
Although the neck is a relatively small part of the body, it consists of some of the most complicated bone and muscle structures that do the crucial job of holding your head up. Your neck’s small vertebrae allow for a lot of mobility. But they can also make your neck more vulnerable to injury and pain. For instance, you can develop neck pain or stiffness simply because of an unusual sleeping position.
Many neck vertebrae issues also impact the alignment of the spine, causing neck pain to persist. When muscles in the neck repeatedly contract or suffer strain due to overuse or poor posture, the spine gets pulled out of alignment. A misaligned spine can lead to nerves becoming irritated, causing further tension in the neck. It can also cause systemic problems because every nerve in the body is rooted in the spinal column.
As a chiropractic clinic serving Orem and Lehi, our neck pain treatment is focused on spinal manipulation. Our doctors perform gentle adjustments to the spine, bringing you neck pain relief. As they address the structural issue that causes your neck pain, our doctors will also help improve your overall health. Bring an end to your nagging pain with holistic chiropractic care.
How Do We Deliver Neck Pain Relief in Orem?
Depending on your diagnosis, our doctors may recommend decompression therapy. This therapy aims to restore the correct alignment of your spine by stretching it, using a motorized traction table. Through a series of sessions, decompression therapy helps pull bulging or herniated discs back into place. It also creates a better healing environment in your body by promoting a clear passage for nutrients.
During a session, our doctors will secure a harness around your hips and attach it to the bottom part of the traction table. The table’s upper section remains steady while the bottom part moves back and forth to slowly stretch the spine and provide the traction needed for effective spinal decompression.
The therapy is safe and non-invasive, and each session lasts 30 to 45 minutes. Your treatment plan may include a series of 15 to 30 sessions over a month and a half. It may also come with supplementary therapies and other services to further improve your quality of life.
