Neck pain can come from a variety of conditions from poor posture and poor work and play ergonomics to degenerative arthritis and disc injuries putting pressure on the nerves. At Dean Chiropractic we specialize in treating all of these and more. As neck pain specialists, the first thing we do is to get the proper diagnosis so that we know exactly what we are treating. Patients will enjoy a comprehensive medical consult and problem focused examination to help determine the exact cause of the neck pain. Most often this exam will also include what is known as a motion study x-ray, taken in-house, to determine what segments of the spine may be stuck or fixated.
Once the proper diagnosis is determined, we will use our extensive knowledge and experience as neck pain specialists to put together a comprehensive treatment plan that is designed not only to alleviate symptoms quickly but to also correct the underlying cause in order to reduce the risk of the problem returning or becoming more chronic as the patient ages. This plan will typically consist of gentle instrument assisted spinal manipulation (see Activator), decompression of the discs to alleviate disc pressure on the nerves, cold laser to reduce inflammation and muscular spasm, and some light physical therapy to stretch scar tissue and increase strength and stability.
As neck pain specialists, our unique and custom designed treatment plans are what sets us apart from the rest of our competition and our flexible payment plans allow us to treat patients with a variety of insurance plans and budgets. Our goal is to not only leave patients feeling great and pain free, but to keep you that way for a long life of pain free work, play, and physical activity!
