Chiropractic is derived from the Greek word for hand and action because chiropractic physicians use their hands to treat your muscle, joint and nerve pain. The chiropractor’s hands are used to adjust the spine and joint by pushing beyond the range in which the joints and muscles usually move. This type of adjustment is used to loosen the joint that move improperly or painfully. Usually this is caused by tissue damage or some kind of scaring. This damage could have been caused by trauma or repetitive stress. Most neck pain that is treated by chiropractors is a result of whiplash. Repetitive stress injuries can be caused by poor posture as well.
When treating neck pain specifically, our chiropractor will perform neck adjustments which are called cervical manipulation. This therapy loosens up the joints of the cervical vertebra in the neck. This action reduces pain that is often caused by pinched nerves and muscle spasms. The trained hands of our Lithonia chiropractor can manipulate the neck in order to snap the vertebra back into place relieving your discomfort.
