Chiropractic and Neck Pain: Conservative Care:

Consulting a chiropractor for neck pain might seem obvious to a patient who has experienced chiropractic and who associates an adjustment with the release of tension, increased motion, and pain relief.

For others, chiropractic treatment of the neck brings to mind a different picture. What could be the benefit of 'popping' the bones in the neck? When family doctors are asked about neck manipulation, they often visualize an abrupt twisting of the neck and are apt to sound a note of alarm when a patient seeks chiropractic care for a cervical injury.

Similar to medical doctors, chiropractors use diagnostic indicators to differentiate types of neck problems. How these indicators are used and what occurs during a cervical adjustment will help to increase awareness of the indications and limitations of chiropractic care for neck conditions.

Chiropractic offers a unique and valuable mechanical approach to a wide range of cervical problems. Chiropractors do not 'twist' the neck or perform painful maneuvers. Manipulation or adjusting as performed by chiropractors is a precise and gentle therapy whose aim is to return motion to restricted spinal joints and to improve the overall mechanics of the spine.
