Neck adjustments are a chiropractic treatment used to provide pain relief associated with the neck. It involves a hands-on physical manipulation of the neck performed by a chiropractor who has spent thousands of hours learning the method and the human vertebrae to execute it safely. Although the thought of getting your neck adjusted can seem terrifying, the risks of something going wrong are rare and the benefits are significant.
The overall goals of a neck adjustment are to restore alignment of the neck and the vertebrae, relieve tension, reduce inflammation and restore mobility. After a neck adjustment, soreness or stiffness may be experienced the next day as the muscles recovering from the adjustment.
The best benefit of a neck adjustment is that it is an alternative to prescription drugs. Prescription drugs are just a temporary solution when it comes to pain. Surprisingly, a doctor will commonly opt for a medical prescription when it comes to patients and their pain. Which is why a chiropractic visit should always be considered.
Not only are prescription drugs such as opiates highly addictive, they can cause side effects and unfortunately even death. Another benefit of chiropractic care is that it can eliminate the need for surgery, which can be very risky in the event of a mistake, complication or infection. Anthetisa is required for surgery, which if you already have cardiovascular problems can be super risky.
So when it comes to chronic neck pain, consult with a chiropractor. Believe it or not, it can potentially be the best decision you ever make.
