Understanding chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is a health profession focusing on diagnosing, treating, and preventing mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. 

Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments to ensure proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, especially the spine, to enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. 

Adjustments are used to restore mobility to stuck joints and restricted areas along your spine.

What are some common causes of neck pain?

Neck pain may be caused from things like poor posture, muscle strain, accidents or injuries, degenerative disc disease, nerve compression, or arthritis. There are a range of musculoskeletal causes of neck pain, which chiropractors and other manual therapists may be able to help with. 

For neck pain causes that are not musculoskeletal, other health practitioners may be able to assist in providing a diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
