Who Can Benefit From Neck Injury Treatment in Pompano Beach?
Anyone who suffers a neck injury may benefit from treatment. No matter the nature of your injury or severity of symptoms, one or more treatments may:
- Relieve or eliminate symptoms
- Improve your range of motion
- Reduce overall pain related to your neck injury
- Help you live a more active, fulfilling life
Neck injuries can be particularly debilitating. Your injury may prevent you from exercising, limit your ability to work, and diminish your mental health. Our firm will identify your symptoms and compose a personalized treatment plan.
Symptoms of Neck Injuries That We Can Target Through Treatment
We treat patients with a wide array of injury symptoms, including:
- Generalized neck pain
- Neck pain that occurs when you move your head in a certain position
- Tightness or spasms in your neck muscles
- Headaches stemming from your neck injury
- Neck stiffness, which limits your range of motion
- Neck weakness
Symptoms of neck injuries can vary in intensity and regularity. Any symptom is worth receiving treatment for. Left unaddressed, your symptoms may get progressively worse with time. The sooner we address your symptoms, the less intensive your treatment process may be.
We Can Treat Any Neck Injury That You Have
We can treat any existing neck injury that you have. We may also diagnose and treat any injuries you’ve yet to receive a diagnosis for. Mayo Clinic explains that neck pain may stem from:
- A herniated disc compressing nerves in your neck
- Bone spurs
- Whiplash, which is commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents
- Muscle strains caused by overuse of the neck muscles
- Osteoarthritis affecting your joints
- Degenerative diseases like rheumatoid arthritis
We also see patients who’ve suffered fractures, sprains, and other neck-related injuries.
If you’ve suffered a neck injury, you can bet that our physicians have administered treatment for it.
We prioritize patient health and safety. If your injury requires more extensive treatment than we provide, we will refer you to qualified medical professionals. Specific Care Chiropractic may, however, be able to help you. All our treatments in Pompano Beach occur in a comfortable environment conducive to recovery.
Our Pompano Beach Neck Injury Treatments
Physiotherapy is our primary mechanism for treating neck injuries. Types of physiotherapy treatment we offer include:
Massage therapy lies at the heart of physiotherapy. This therapy may provide relief from pain, promote long-term healing, improve range of motion, and reduce muscle tension.
The journal Musculoskeletal Science and Practice supports massage therapy as a means of reducing pain intensity. Through our treatments, we’ve seen massage therapy help with other symptoms of neck injury.
Also known as corrective care, we offer a variety of chiropractic adjustments, including:
- Extremity manipulation
- Side posture
- Thompson Drop-Table Technique
- Seated diversified
- Toggle recoil
- Sacral-occipital technique (SOT)
We administer these adjustments with controlled, forceful manipulations. We will explain any corrective care you require before completing the adjustment.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (E-STIM) Therapy
E-STIM therapy involves the use of electric pulses to encourage muscle tissue repair. We will direct safe pulses to your neck and other affected areas of your body. E-STIM therapy may be especially helpful if your neck injury stems from poor posture or overuse.
Rather than electrical pulses, ultrasound therapy targets neck injury symptoms with sound waves. This treatment is also meant to encourage tissue growth and promote blood flow.
Our physicians and therapists employ several exercises to address neck injury symptoms. Some of these exercises will increase strength in your neck, and we may use:
- Exercise balls
- Vibration plates
- Other tools that work within your treatment plan
When you receive treatment from Specific Care Chiropractic, you gain access to all our resources. Our Rehab Room may become a critical piece in your quest to become pain-free.
Know the Four Phases of Your Neck Injury Treatment
We measure the progress of your treatment through four benchmarks: acute phase, rehab phase, strengthening phase, maximum medical improvement (MMI) phase.
As the first stage in your recovery, the acute phase will include:
- Pinpointing of your symptoms and development of a treatment plan
- Efforts to relieve your pain as quickly as possible
- Efforts to improve mobility as soon as possible
During the acute phase, we—no surprise—address the most acute symptoms you’re experiencing.
Your body may begin to respond to acute treatment. At this point, we’ll begin the rehab phase. This phase will involve strengthening exercises. We will also address any correctable responses to treatment, like flare-ups.
By the time you reach the strengthening phase, you should have experienced significant improvement of symptoms. We’ll turn our attention to strengthening your neck during this phase.
Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) Phase
Once you’ve reached Maximum Medical Improvement, you’ve reached the end of your treatment course. MMI means that, according to medical standards, your symptoms have improved as far as they’re going to improve. You may no longer need to seek treatment with Specific Care Chiropractic at this point.
We will work hard to get you to maximum medical improvement. Once you reach MMI, you may be able to live your life pain-free.
