Neck and Back Pain Relief
If you suffer from Neck pain, Lower Back Pain, Headaches, Knee Pain, or Hip Pain you should visit Arrowhead Clinic.
Our pain clinics service many cities throughout Georgia and Tennessee. Our doctors will evaluate your spine as a whole because other regions may be affected as well.
Our doctors may advise you on nutritional changes, stress management, posture and sleeping positions, and lifestyle goals in addition to treating your pain in office.
Before deciding which approach to try for your pain, we will conduct a thorough examination to diagnose the specific cause of your pain.
We will determine what areas are restricting movement, and will look at how you walk as well as your overall postureand spinal alignment.
Doing these things can help us understand your body’s mechanics.
In addition to the physical exam, we’ll also go through your past medical history, and we may order imaging tests, like an x-ray or MRI, to help us diagnose the exact cause of your pain.
All these steps will help us create a treatment plan customized for you.
Treatments for Pain
Our doctors may use a combination of spinal manipulation, manual therapy, and other techniques as part of your treatment plan for neck pain.
Some of those spinal manipulation techniques may include:
- Flexion-distraction technique is a gentle, hands-on spinal manipulation that involves a pumping action on the intervertebral disc instead of direct force.
- Instrument-assisted manipulation uses a hand-held instrument to allow your chiropractor to apply force without thrusting into the spine.
- Specific spinal manipulation helps restore joint movement using a gentle thrusting technique.
