How Chiropractic Relieves Neck Pain
If 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 you learn about how chiropractic relieves neck pain so that you can find the assistance you need.
When you visit Dr. Etlinger, bring any medical documentation or x-rays you may have that outlines the description and symptoms of your condition by another physician. For instance, whether the pains are sharp or dull, throbbing or steady can provide valuable information.
A typical first visit includes an initial consultation, examination and x-rays. If Dr. Etlinger has time, he may go over the results of the aforementioned the same day.
With that said, Dr. Etlinger won’t leave you hanging. He’s compassionate to your pain. In other words, he’ll administer some form of pain relief the same day as your initial visit until a complete diagnosis is available.
Additionally, Dr. Etlinger 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®. Ice Packs are available in the office for $5!
During your subsequent visit, a detailed treatment plan will be presented to you by Dr. Etlinger that can help correct the problem. If so, be consistent with the treatment plan your diagnosis warrants so that your neck pain is not only relieved but potentially corrected.
Dr. Etlinger 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 through multiple chiropractic adjustments may take time, even when the pain disappears.
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 Dr, Etlinger and allowing him to treat the area is a smart choice. He has undergone extensive training in the chiropractic field and is capable of treating neck pain effectively.
