When you have pain in your neck, what you need is neck pain treatments. Dr. Tod Ichishita and his team at Big Island Chiropractic, serving Kailua Kona, HI, offer the treatments that you need to get back to a pain-free life. Chiropractic care can help you to recover without the use of drugs.
When it comes to neck pain treatments, the most common one used by chiropractors is the adjustment. When it takes place in the neck, it's called cervical manipulation. It is a very precise adjustment that can not only help with pain, but can also greatly improve the mobility in your neck which may have become limited due to whiplash or other injuries.
Stretches and exercise
When your neck is stiff and sore, stretches and therapeutic exercises can help to restore flexibility and mobility. Your chiropractor will make specific recommendations to help your particular situation. Even though many people may suffer from the same condition, an individual treatment plan is designed for each patient depending on your body and your condition.
Cold laser therapy, also called low-level laser, is a treatment that uses light to reach deep into the tissue to reduce inflammation and pain and to stimulate the cells to speed up recovery. A handheld device is used to send the light into the soft tissue or the joints.
This therapy uses sound waves to heat and vibrate the tissues deep beneath the skin. It increases the circulation in the area receiving treatment and decreases inflammation, stiffness, pain, and spasms. The healing process is accelerated, as well.
Inversion table therapy
Inversion table therapy can help with not only back pain but with neck pain. It helps to increase the space between the vertebrae in the neck and if you are suffering from neck disc issues or pinched nerves, this therapy can help to provide relief.
