Whether your chronic neck pain is due to a whiplash injury, sports injury, or a personal injury, recurring neck pain can have a serious impact on your quality of life. Unfortunately, medical treatments that rely on drugs to address this pain only offer limited relief. Once the drugs wear off, the pain will return. Cooper City chiropractic care is different. Natural healing in Cooper City provides relief without the need for surgery or medication.
Whiplash injuries are one of the most common causes for neck pain. This type of injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact knocks the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion. Most whiplash injuries are caused by car accidents -- you do not need to be in a serious car accident to experience whiplash, however. Whiplash injuries can occur at speeds as slow as 5mph during minor “fender benders.” A misaligned cervical spine often places pressure on nearby nerves, which in turn triggers pain.
As long as the cervical spine is out of alignment, patients will continue to suffer from neck pain. Long-lasting neck pain relief is best achieved by targeting the underlying cause for pain. This starts by addressing the misalignment through hands-on chiropractic adjustments. Our chiropractor will first conduct diagnostic tests to determine the precise location of any spinal subluxations. Next, using hands-on adjustments, we will gently and safely work to correct these subluxations. By targeting the root cause for your pain, Cooper City chiropractic care provides effective neck pain relief.
Caring Touch Pain Relief Center is proud to be a leading provider for natural healing in Cooper City. That’s why we offer a variety of comprehensive treatments for integrated care. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our patients benefit from spinal decompression therapy and physiotherapy. Spinal decompression therapy uses precise, computerized traction to gently and safely decompress the cervical spine. Creating space between the vertebrae is essential to relieving pressure on the nerves for long-term pain relief.
Physiotherapy exercises are very beneficial for restoring mobility to the cervical spine. After an accident injury, it can be incredibly painful to turn the neck from side to side and to look up or down. Our chiropractor will teach you exercises that support your recovery and can be done safely from the comfort of your own home.
If your neck pain is due to poor posture, ergonomic adjustments are an important part of the pain relief process. When we strain to reach a keyboard or see a computer screen, the head shifts forward, stressing the cervical spine and shoulders. Simple ergonomic adjustments, such as changing the height of an office chair or adjusting the location of a computer, can help relieve this pain. Choosing a pillow designed to properly support the neck will also help alleviate pain.
