Here at Family Health Physical Medicine, we want to help you relieve any neck pain that you are feeling. Whether the pain is minor or severe, our qualified and friendly staff is here to help you. Having neck pain can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. You forget how important your neck health is until you begin having neck pain. Your neck, also called the cervical spine, supports the full weight of your head. The average weight of someone’s head is twelve pounds, making the neck very susceptible to pain.
Neck pain can be caused by many things, including sitting for long periods of time, repetitive moments, automotive accidents, and even falling. Everyday wear and tear can also give you neck pain.
During your first visit with us, we will do a thorough evaluation and ask you some questions. Ultimately, we want to find the exact root of your problem. By figuring this out, we will be able to be on our way to getting you to be pain free. A neck adjustment is a quick motion that will help improve the mobility in your neck, spine, and overall range of motion. Patients typically notice a reduction in pain very quickly after being adjusted.
Here at Family Health Physical Medicine, we specialize in assisting our patients who are experiencing headaches.
Nine out of ten Americans say that they suffer from headaches. Some of these people experience headaches frequently. Some experience constant headaches that are very painful. These can even make a person nauseous.
When most people get a pounding headache, they continue on with their day, lie down, or pop a pill and hope for the best. There is a better way!
Ninety-five percent of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused from a disease, but from something in your body that is not sitting correctly.
Chiropractic care can assist you if you are experiencing headaches. We will be able to perform spinal manipulation or adjustments that improve spinal function and alleviate the stress of your system. We can provide nutritional advice and recommend a change in your diet to address what may be causing your headaches. We are also able to offer advice on your posture, take you through exercises, and show you relaxation techniques. These will assist you in relieving the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of your neck and upper back.
No one on our staff ever wants to see you in pain from headaches. That is why we are dedicated to helping you feel better. Our qualified and compassionate chiropractors will do everything that they can to get you back to how you felt prior to the headaches. We are also here to answer any questions that you may have along the way. No question is ever silly to us, and we never want you to feel confused when you leave our office.
