How Chiropractic In Austin Relieves Neck Pain

woman at desk with neck painIf you have pain in any part of your body, it can range from uncomfortable to downright debilitating. In the case of your neck, any degree of irritation can impede your ability to function. Because of this, it is important that we look at how chiropractic in Austin relieves neck pain. Then, you can find the assistance you need.

Where do I start?

So, you’ve heard that chiropractic relieves neck pain. What should you do? When you first visit a chiropractor, you should take along medical records that relate to your neck pain. This includes any medical history that outlines the description and symptoms of your condition by another physician.

You should also make sure to get a copy of your latest x-rays. If you do not have any, we may take some depending on what you come in with.

Depending on the chiropractor’s approach, a typical first visit includes an initial consultation and examination, and sometimes x-rays too. Depending on your problem, we may go over the results the same day. Each case is different, so we may study and review your case before determining if we can help you.

With that said, we won’t leave you hanging. We know you’re in pain! In other words, we’ll administer some form of pain relief the same day as your initial visit until a complete diagnosis is available.

During this initial waiting period, your local chiropractor may administer the following pain relief methods for neck pain:

  • Ice
  • Light soft tissue work using a topical analgesic like BioFreeze
  • Interferential therapy, electrical stimulation and/or other physical therapy modalities
  • Heat (if the condition isn’t acute)

Additionally, your Austin chiropractor may make pain relief recommendations that you can use back home to help reduce your neck pain until your next visit. These typically include the proper use of ice as well as the administration of a topical analgesic like BioFreeze

During your subsequent visit, a detailed treatment plan will be presented to you. If so, consistency with the treatment plan is key, so your neck pain is not only relieved but corrected.

Remember, your chiropractor is not only concerned about relieving your neck pain but even more concerned about finding and fixing the cause of the problem. Misalignments of the spine (aka vertebral subluxations) don’t just happen over night (unless there is some form of blunt force that caused it). So correcting these subluxations helps relieve neck pain and stabilizes the problem

Regardless, when people are experiencing neck pain, it can diminish their quality of life. It becomes difficult to perform regular tasks such as driving. Visiting a chiropractor and allowing them to treat the area is a smart choice. These professionals have undergone extensive training in their field and are capable of treating neck pain effectively. So if you or a loved one are experiencing neck pain, give us a call. We’re here to help!

How our Austin Chiropractor is different

You may well have seen a chiropractor before. Some of our patients haven’t always had the best experience, or they don’t like the idea of the twisting and cracking involved with regular chiropractic. Upper cervical chiropractic techniques, such as Blair or NUCCA , are a very gentle and specific way to realign the bones of the spine and relieve pressure on spinal nerves. Our Blair chiropractor in Austin says it’s a very different approach to what most people think of, when they think of ‘chiropractic’!
