There are several conditions that chiropractic can address without side effects. In this post, you will learn about the typical cervical problems treated by chiropractic, as well as some insights on the techniques performed to promote lasting relief and improvement.

Cervical Problems and Chiropractic

There are several causes and types of neck pain that are resolved through chiropractic manipulation. Although it may not be the only form of treatment for neck issues, it is considered as among the safest means of eliminating pains in the neck such as those due to disc problems and mechanical cervical pain.

With mechanical type of neck pain, this often originates from tendons, ligaments, fascia and joint capsules. When this issue persists, this could result to stiffness of the neck. Moreover, the pain may radiate to other areas that is no longer within the injury site. Issues with the facet joint may be caused by sprains and injuries on these areas. When this type of problem occurs, the pain may also be felt in the upper back, into the arms and shoulder blade.

Another type of neck pain is cervical herniated disc. When the inside portion of the disc, as well as the cervical disc itself, has a tear, this may herniate to the annulus or the outer part. Then, the nerve root may become pinched, and this can result to pain that is felt into the hands and along the arms.

These cervical problems may range from mild to severe, with the latter greatly impacting the quality of your life. However, there is a solution to these issues, and this is exactly what chiropractic aims to resolve. Through spinal manipulation and bone adjustments, your neck will return to its pain-free and healthier condition without any adverse impacts due to the non-invasive nature of this form of treatment.
