Treatment for Neck Pain- Renew Chiropractic Lakewood
Shoulder and neck pain often go hand-in-hand. The most common cause of combined shoulder and neck pain is injury to the soft tissues contained within the neck and shoulder region. Whiplash is the most common cause of shoulder and neck pain.
Osteoarthritis can also cause combined neck and shoulder pain, as can degenerative disc disease. Both of these cause bone to rub against bone, resulting in a
pinched nerve in the neck, which leads to severe pain. Other causes of combined shoulder and neck pain in Lakewood include:
- Forward Head Posture
- Car wrecks
- Computer work
It must also be noted that any inflammation under the diaphragm, such as an inflamed spleen or gallbladder, can cause pain in the right shoulder and the neck.
Dr. Jumper will assess the overall quality of your soft tissue structure and spinal movement, including a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and biomechanical evaluation.
Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) Technique, Pettibon Adjusting Technique and 3-D Mirror Image Techniques may be implemented to help restore postural distortions in your spine. Soft tissue therapies such as Fascial Manipulation will be used to reduce the symptoms of disc disease. Further imaging such as digital x-ray, MRI, EMG could be ordered to assess the overall nature of your condition.
Chiropractic care is more than just making your pain disappear, it is about learning, understanding and taking care of your body to improve quality of life.
