Neck Pain and Arm Pain
Charlotte Chiropractic Care for Neck and Arm Pain
What is it?
Neck and arm pain is a popular reason why many seek chiropractic care, but at the same time it is the one area patients are most apprehensive about. Depending on the mechanism of injury it can range from a sharp to a dull ache, and often times complicated cervical spine issues can cause radiating pain into the shoulder, arm, and hand. If the vertebrae is misaligned by poor posture, accidents/falls, or overuse; the muscles and tendons will be forced to stretch too far. This can cause pain and discomfort in all aspects of the cervical spine. Also, this action of the connective tissue can force the spinal segments out of place, putting pressure on the nerves, causing the pain to travel down into the upper extremities. One such condition that falls in this category that doctors at ChiroCarolina have effectively treated is carpal tunnel syndrome. This whole syndrome can be quite uncomfortable, and until the spine and connective tissues are helped back into their normal positions, the pain usually does not go away.
Possible Causes of neck pain
The Chiropractic Solution
Chiropractic offers a unique and valuable mechanical approach to a wide range of cervical problems. Chiropractors do not ‘twist’ the neck or perform painful maneuvers. After careful evaluation, our doctors will determine if you are a candidate for chiropractic care. Doctors at ChiroCarolina will use a precise and gentle therapy aiming to return motion to restricted spinal joints and to improve the overall mechanics of the spine.
Charlotte Chiropractic Treatment
The appropriate arm and neck pain treatment for this type of symptom, in most cases, includes gentle chiropractic adjustments of the spine, along with certain types of physiotherapy including traction and neuromuscular electrical stimulation. The chiropractic adjustments help restore normal spinal motion, while the physiotherapy helps alleviate muscle tightness or spasms. Doctors at ChiroCarolina will gauge the duration of treatment depending on the severity of the condition, how often one has had the condition in the past, their age, and normal activity level. The treatment will be customized to the specific patient situation so that it will be the most effective.
