Neck pain has more than one cause, but if you have been in an auto accident, neck pain is a frequent result. Whiplash doesn't always show up the first day or immediately after an accident. But when it does start, it can be quite debilitating. Getting checked as soon after an accident as possible is important to your comfort and health. Some symptoms you may experience immediately are blurred vision, headaches, and dizziness. Don't delay, make an appointment as soon after an auto accident as possible.
Your visit to the chiropractor for neck pain will involve an examination of your entire spine. This hands-on approach will allow them to find the spots that are tender and to discover if the vertebrae in your neck are out of alignment. Chiropractic adjustments can be accomplished in many different ways. There are more than 100 different variations of spinal adjustments. The goal is to get the vertebrae back in place. Alignment allows messages to flow freely from the brain to all the extremities.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese procedure that uses thin stainless steel needles to allow the Qi to flow freely on the invisible meridians in the body. When the meridian is blocked, it can cause many things to happen, including pain. The needles are inserted into the skin at specific depths to provide the necessary relief. This treatment allows for pain relief without medication and the usual side effects. Neck pain is a good reason to give acupuncture a try.
Physical therapy can help with pain in the musculoskeletal system. Your body takes a beating every day with the repetitive motions that you make while performing the activities of daily life. Physical therapy can provide relief for neck pain due to weakness and damage. It works well with chiropractic and acupuncture to offer a full range of approaches to pain.
