Neck and Back Pain Treatment
The structure of the human spine is highly complex. It is made up of bones, ligaments, nerves, discs, and muscles that work together to help us move. It is not unusual for people to suffer acute or chronic neck pain or lower back pain and a decreased range of motion. This type of pain is especially common when the structure of the neck and back become misaligned. If you are suffering from neck and back pain in and around Elk Grove, CA visit us at Labrado Chiropractic for neck and back pain treatment for effective pain relief. Chiropractic treatments do not involve the risks of surgery or dangerous medications.
Neck Pain Treatment
There are seven bones in the neck. Those are known as vertebrae, and that area of the spine is known as the cervical spine. Those cervical vertebrae, ligaments, and muscles provide support, range of motion, and cushioning for the head that weighs about twelve pounds. If one or more of those vertebrae become misaligned, they compress your spinal nerves and cause pain and decreased range of motion.
The key to neck pain treatment is carefully and gently realigning the cervical vertebrae to their proper positions with chiropractic adjustments. Realignment takes physical pressure off of the nerves while reducing your pain. In turn, your muscles become relaxed, and your range of motion is restored. Additional therapies like cold laser therapy, myofascial release, massage therapy, and trigger point therapy may also be used to relax your muscle spasms and tightness.
Back Pain Treatment
Many of our patients visit us for lower back pain treatment. That type of pain typically originates from the lower lumbar spine and travels across one hip, into the buttocks, and down one leg. The painful sensation might be sharp, dull, or burning. One leg may intermittently become weak and numb. This condition is often caused by compression of the sciatic nerve from a displaced lumbar vertebra. Chiropractic repositioning of the displaced vertebra can relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and relax the muscles surrounding it. The same additional therapies may be used in lower back pain treatment as in neck pain treatment.
