Your neck is an integral part of your body. Its muscles, tendons, nerves, and spinal discs support your head’s weight and carry your upper spine. With that, a neck injury can cause serious pain and affect your day-to-day activities.
Whether you are healing from whiplash or suffering a repetitive work injury, our chiropractic services can treat and prevent the recurrence of pain.
At Specific Care Chiropractic, your Lehigh Acres neck injury treatment can be tailored to your needs, and our chiropractors can help you move forward after getting hurt.
Types of Neck Injuries Our Lehigh Acres Chiropractors Can Treat
Neck pain can result from a number of injuries and conditions, including misalignment. We treat pain caused by:
- Traumatic injuries: Trauma may result from a collision, slip and fall, or another incident. Whiplash is a common neck injury following a car accident.
- Muscle tension, strain, or overuse injury: This may stem from postural concerns, “computer neck,” repeated motion injuries at work, or other forms of neck muscle stress.
- Neck pain related to other conditions: The neck pain you experience could be related to other health issues, such as arthritis or osteoporosis.
Our chiropractors will examine your health history, determine the root cause of your pain, and develop a specific plan to address your neck pain.
What Chiropractic Care Can Do for Your Neck Injury
In many situations, getting chiropractic care for neck injuries can make the difference between a pain-free life and long-term discomfort.
Our job as chiropractors is to:
- Identify where your nervous system is experiencing irritation
- Use massage, adjustment, and other techniques to improve alignment and bodily function
Our Lehigh Acres team may use a variety of methods to address your condition, including:
- Soft-tissue therapy
- Joint adjustment
- Physical therapy
We can address your painful neck injuries and help you avoid the need for surgery or harsh medications.
Chiropractic Care Is Key to Addressing Spinal Misalignment
Traumatic injuries—from car accidents to slip and falls—can misalign your spine. In turn, spinal misalignment may cause a number of painful symptoms, from neck pain to headaches to tingling in the extremities.
If you’re facing neck pain or other symptoms because of spinal misalignment, chiropractic care can restore your normal functionality, according to Healthline.
Chiropractic Treatment Addresses Whiplash and Other Soft-Tissue Injuries
Many people write off whiplash as a minor injury. However, studies show that whiplash can have many painful consequences for victims—not only immediately after getting hurt but for years afterward.
According to BMC Public Health, some whiplash injury victims still report pain five years after an accident. They also reported a lower quality of life during those five years.
