Treatment for neck pain in San Diego CA that does not involve drugs, injections or surgery is here.
Neck pain can typically be attributed to a few structures in the neck:
1. The Facet Joints - There are joints in the neck that when improper motion is present can cause some fairly significant pain and discomfort.
Solution? There are a few really good options that can help with this including yoga, physical therapy, massage and chiropractic adjustments. The adjustments wil treat this condition directly and only 3-6 adjustments should typically be needed and in some cases only 1-2. Do not get sold by someone telling you to come for 6 or 12 months of chiropractic treatment, it is unnecessary.
2. The Muscles - There could be a minor tear or strain in the in the muscle that is causing tightness and inflammation and causing poor spinal motion that is also causing and contributing to the pain.
Solution? This may require treatment directly to the muscles, sometimes requires rest, physical therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy.
3. Spinal Discs - The Spinal discs act as shock absorbers and provide space between the spinal bones, vertebrae. They are also avascular tissues, meaning they do not have a direct blood supply. They require proper motion in order for them to receive oxygen, water and nutrients. If they do not receive these vital components, then they can become weak and brittle and result in conditions such as disc bulges, disc herniations, slipped discs, protruded discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and others.
Solution? NSSD - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression addresses these disc related issues directly by treating the cause of the problem. Spinal decompression utilizes a gentle distractive force that separates the vertebrae allowing the disc to receive needed oxygen, water and nutrients and thus alleviating the pain caused from the disc being compressed. The treatment is relaxing and studies done by Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University and Stanford University reveal very high success rates with no side effects at all.
