Neck Pain Relief @ Peterborough Chiropractic

How Our Team At Peterborough Chiropractic Relieves Neck Pain

If you have pain in any part of your body, it can range from uncomfortable to downright debilitating. In the case of your neck, any degree of irritation can impede your ability to function. Because of this, it is important that you learn about how the Peterborough Chiropractic team relieves neck pain so that you can find the assistance you need.

When you first visit us @ Peterborough Chiropractic , you should take along medical records that relate to your neck pain. This includes any medical history that outlines the description and symptoms of your condition by another physician. For instance, whether the pains are sharp or dull, throbbing or steady can provide valuable information to your practitioner.

You should also make sure to get a copy of your latest x-rays/MRI scans. If you do not have any, that is okay because this is something we can arrange if appropriate.

A typical first visit includes an initial consultation, examination and report of findings.

During the initial period, your Peterborough Chiropractic practitioner may administer the following pain relief methods for neck pain:

  • Ice
  • Light soft tissue work using a topical analgesic like BioFreeze®
  • Interferential therapy, electrical stimulation and/or other physical therapy modalities
  • Heat (if the condition isn’t acute)

Additionally, your Peterborough Chiropractic practitioner may make pain relief recommendations that you can use back at home to help reduce your neck pain until your next visit. These typically include the proper use of ice as well as the administration of a topical analgesic like BioFreeze®.

During your subsequent visit, a detailed treatment plan will be presented to you if your Peterborough Chiropractic practitioner believes he or she can help correct the problem. If so, be consistent with the treatment plan your diagnosis warrants so that your neck pain is not only relieved but potentially corrected.

Remember, your Peterborough Chiropractic practitioner is not only concerned about relieving your neck pain but even more concerned about finding and fixing the cause of the problem. Misalignments of the spine don’t just happen over night (unless there is some form of blunt force that caused it). So correcting these misalignments through manual therapy may take time, even when the pain disappears.

Regardless, when people are experiencing neck pain, it can diminish their quality of life. It becomes difficult to perform regular tasks such as driving. Visiting a Peterborough Chiropractic practitioner and allowing them to treat the area is a smart choice. These professionals have undergone extensive training in their field and are capable of treating neck pain effectively. So if you or a loved one are experiencing neck pain, give us a call. We’re here to help!
