Neck Pain Responds Well to Chiropractic
Neck pain or stiff necks may be so mild that it is merely annoying and distracting to so severe that it is unbearable and incapacitating. If the muscles that support your head are not kept strong and in good condition, the upper part of your spinal column is vulnerable to strains and injuries. Neck pain and stiffness are usually caused by something you did. If you keep your head in an awkward position ( while working, watching TV, using a computer, reading a book, or talking on the phone with the receiver held against your shoulder and under your chin) for too long the neck muscles can become painfully fatigued and the joints in your neck can “lockup” or malfunction.
Stress, disease, neck injury as in an auto accident, a congenital malformation, or progressive spinal degeneration that can come with age may be responsible for neck pain. Examination, diagnosis and treatment by a doctor of chiropractic may quickly relieve your neck pain.
Dr. Zilahy can determine if you have a relatively minor and treatable condition or a more serious underlying condition (from disease, degeneration, or trauma) that may require more intensive, extended treatment or referral to a specialist. He is trained and skilled to help relieve your neck pain, overcome stiffness, and restore the mobility and range of motion of any neck vertebrae. He is devoted to helping you get back to your normal pursuits and start feeling like yourself again.
Take The Test
With the test subject comfortably seated and their eyes closed, have them tilt their head up and down several times, coming to a neutral resting position.
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the left and hold for a few seconds.
With their eyes still closed and without moving their shoulders, have them rotate their head fully to the right and hold for a few seconds.
Could they turn further in one direction than the other?
Was there pain associated with turning in either direction?
Did the subject hear popping or grinding sounds?
“Yes” responses are significant and should prompt a more thorough examination in our office.
