Neck Pain in Willoughby, OH
The chiropractors at French Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Madison specialize in neck pain treatments for the residents of Willoughby. Issues with the neck’s vertebrae and muscles can result in pain, inflammation and muscle spasms.
What Is Neck Pain?
Second only to lower back pain, neck pain is most frequent condition chiropractors are asked to treat. The primary causes of neck pain are abnormalities in the nerves, ligaments, and muscles, known as the “soft tissues,” and the spine’s bone and joints. Injury and prolonged strain are the most common causes of the soft tissue abnormalities that chiropractors need to treat. For some individuals who also experience pain in their arms, upper back and shoulders, neck pain is often the source. If the neck pain is caused by a muscle strain, the patient will often feel symptoms including stiffness and aches that start in the neck and reach down to the upper arm and forearm.

Causes of Neck Pain
Overuse, bad posture, and trauma are just a few of the many different factors that can contribute to a patient’s neck pain. These eventually cause injury to the structures that surround the patient’s spine in areas including the blood vessels, nerves, tendons, ligaments, discs, joints, and muscles.
Neck Pain Treatment
At French Chiropractic and Wellness Center, two types of spinal decompression are used. One is a chiropractic flexion/distraction table. The other is a spinal decompression table providing spinal decompression therapy that is approved by the FDA. There is also a more conservative treatment option, in which the chiropractors make manual adjustments with an instrument or by hand.
These treatments focus on bringing correct segmental motion back to the dysfunctional vertebral regions. This removes pressure from the nerve endings lining the surface of joints, reducing pain and increasing flexibility in the treated area.
