How Does Chiropractic Care Work as Neck Pain Treatment?
About 30% of the U.S. population suffers from neck pain annually and 50% of people go on to develop chronic neck pain for years to come.
Fortunately, chiropractic care offers a comprehensive solution for neck pain treatment because it targets pain at its source for long-term results.
Is Chiropractic Effective for Treating Neck Pain from Text Neck?
Smartphones and tablets aren’t doing your neck any favors. Tilting your head downwards to look at your phone can multiply the weight of your head and put subsequent pressure on your delicate spine by up to 60 pounds.
Your chiropractor will take x-rays to identify any herniated discs or other problems. In many cases of text neck, the spine has shifted out of shape. Studies show that chiropractic adjustments are effective solutions for treating many types of neck pain.
Acupuncture can prolong and improve relief as well. Studies have found that acupuncture is effective for treating neck pain and can even produce results that last at least 12 months.
