Everyone experiences back or neck pain from time to time, but when it becomes a chronic or severe issue, it is best to receive treatment as soon as possible. We specialize in back and neck chiropractic in Vancouver WA and can provide drug-free relief that can restore your quality of life.
How Can Back and Neck Chiropractic in Vancouver WA Relieve Pain?
We use many different techniques to reduce back and neck pain. At your first appointment, we will go over your medical history and symptoms, then conduct a physical examination to create a customized treatment plan just for you. Our plans may incorporate one or more of the following techniques:
Spinal manipulation and adjustment: This is one of the most common treatments we use. Manipulation and adjustment are hands-on techniques that involve massaging, moving and applying pressure to the joints and spine. They allow us to target the source of your pain and can increase flexibility and range of motion.
Lifestyle counseling: We may recommend changes in your lifestyle to reduce back or neck pain. These may include altering your sleep habits, work environment and exercise routine or ways to reduce stress.
Manual therapies: We often treat back and neck pain using manual therapies like massage, trigger point therapy or myofascial release. These treatments help release tension in the tendons, ligaments and muscles around the spine.
Common Causes of Neck and Back Pain
Both back and neck pain are common complaints that can cause major disruptions in your quality of life.
The neck is a complex system made of several bones called vertebrae that begin at the base of the skull and provide protection to the upper portion of your spinal cord. Neck pain can be caused by many conditions and injuries, including the following:
- Cervical osteoarthritis
- Muscle strain and spine misalignment caused by poor posture
- Herniated discs
- Injury as a result of falls, overuse or accidents
- Poor movement patterns that lead to imbalances and strain in the neck
- Spinal cord compression or pinched nerve roots
Back pain can also be caused by a number of conditions or injuries, including the following:
- Ligament or muscle strain, often after a sudden awkward movement or repeated heavy lifting
- Ruptured or bulging discs that press on nerves
