The portion of the spine directly below the neck is called the “cervical spine”. It allows the head to move in every direction, but the flexibility can make the neck prone to injuries and pain.
Neck pain may start due to aging and other factors like degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis. It may also be caused as a result of injuries to the muscles, soft tissue, ligaments and nerves.
Chiropractic care is a non-surgical treatment that can help relieve neck pain. In this treatment, a chiropractor uses neck adjustments also known as cervical manipulation. Pressure on the nerve is reduced by adjusting the neck, which improves the mobility of the spine and increases the range of motion.
Other Treatments with Chiropractic Care
Along with neck adjustment, a chiropractor may use massage therapy which basically involves applying pressure on the neck muscles. The treatment plan may also include mobilization, massage or rehabilitative exercises.
