Does Chiropractic Care Really Help Relieve Neck Pain?
People are turning to their chiropractors to ease their neck pain.
Your neck pain chiropractor can perform a manual adjustment, among other things, that will treat the underlying issue of your pain.
They won't just throw pills at you — pills that often have nasty side effects.
Neck conditions your chiropractor can treat are:
- Cervical (neck) intervertebral disc injuries that don’t require surgery
- Cervical sprain injuries
- Degenerative joint syndrome of the neck (e.g., facet joints)
- Facet joint sprain
