Has Neck Pain Affected Your Life? Find Relief with Chiropractic Care

Neck pain is one of the most common complaints among Americans today. Almost everyone has suffered from neck pain at some point, whether from an injury, a pinched nerve, or just sleeping the wrong way. Reaching for medication may provide temporary relief, but it doesn’t correct the root cause of the pain. Thankfully, many have found long-lasting relief from a Duluth chiropractor. Chiropractic care has long been found to help ease neck and back pain. It addresses the source of pain to get to the root cause so that you can experience long-term relief from annoying neck pain. No matter how small or great your pain, chiropractic care can help your neck feel better.

Why Do I Have Neck Pain in the First Place?

In order to get to the root of neck pain, we must first look at what causes it. Putting pressure on the neck can lead to chronic pain. In today’s society, constantly straining to look at a computer at work or looking down to use our phones and tablets can put pressure on the neck. For every inch the head moves forward and is not properly supported by the spine, it adds 10 pounds of pressure to the neck.  You can imagine how that would make our necks feel after long days at work or school. Sleeping awkwardly or even turning our heads abruptly can also affect the neck. Spinal alignment is crucial to head and neck support. Misalignments, or vertebrae that are out of place, are often the source of neck pain that must be addressed to bring about relief. Thankfully, that’s where a Duluth chiropractor comes in.

Chiropractic Care Can Help

Gentle and safe adjustments from Dr. Esther Widjaja of Phoenix Chiropractic is a proven method to alleviate neck pain. After an initial assessment to locate misalignments, Dr. Widjaja will then adjust the spine and neck to ensure everything is in proper alignment once again so the neck and head can be properly supported. But one visit to a chiropractor may not be enough. We are constantly turning, bending down, and moving which can cause vertebrae to shift again. In order to keep our bodies in alignment, regular visits to Duluth chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja are recommended. In fact, studies show that it can take an average of 17 visits to experience long-term results, but it will be well worth the commitment to be pain-free!

Case Studies Support Chiropractic Care for Relief

Research conducted shows that chiropractic care is indeed a safe and effective method for alleviating neck pain. One case study focused on a 10-year-old boy with torticollis and painful muscle spasms. His pain was so severe that it required a trip to the emergency room, but he continued to suffer from pain even afterwards. At their wits end, his parents finally decided to turn to chiropractic care. After just 12 visits, he found relief. He had full range of motion in his neck restored and he reported being completely pain-free.

You don’t have to live with neck pain. Be proactive about your health with consistent chiropractic care. Contact Dr. Esther Widjaja of Phoenix Chiropractic to schedule an appointment and experience the many benefits of chiropractic care for your health.
