TREATING NECK PAIN

Do you find it difficult to look over your shoulder?  Do you have a constant pulling or throbbing pain in your neck?  Do you hear a grinding sound when you turn your head?  These are warning signs of chronic neck pain.

Many people try to cover up the problem by taking drugs, such as aspirin or pain pills.  Others seek relief from the symptoms of neck pain through the use of things like muscle relaxers or hot packs.  These are temporary fixes at best, because they do not address the root cause of chronic neck pain.

At Lindstrom Chiropractic, our approach to neck pain is to locate its underlying cause, which usually can be traced back to the structure and function of the spine, and its affect on your nervous system.  This approach allows us to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to improve the position and motion of your spinal vertebrae.

Once this is accomplished, neck pain usually diminishes or totally disappears - without the use of drugs and their potentially harmful side effects.

A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who received chiropractic care for neck pain reported significant improvement in their neck function and a reduction in their neck pain, while those taking pain-killers did not.

If you suffer from chronic neck pain, let Dr. Tom map out a plan to address your specific symptoms.
