Back & Neck Pain Relief

How Edmonds Chiropractic Care Can Help Alleviate Back Pain and Neck Pain 

You may have heard so much about chiropractic care's ability to treat neck and back pain that you take such statements for granted. But, did you ever wonder exactly what is involved in the process, how and why behind the effectiveness of this form of natural care?

Let us examine how the techniques practiced by our Edmonds chiropractors at Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage can help provide back pain and neck pain relief.

Man with neck and back pain in Edmonds, WA

Your back and neck have one critical thing in common -- namely, your spine. The spinal column extends from the sacral vertebrae near the pelvis all the way up to the cervical vertebrae that connect to the skull. This extraordinarily flexible structure protects the spinal cord, which also runs the entire length of your back and neck.

These anatomical features mean that many of the problems that affect the neck are similar in nature to those that cause back pain. Both parts of the body can suffer from:

  • Degenerative disc disease - Age-related bulging and flattening of the discs can place extra strain on vertebral joints and can also pinch spinal nerve tissue.

  • Herniated discs - A disc with an exterior tear can push inner disc material onto a nerve root, causing pain and dysfunction.

  • Muscle strain - Alignment problems, poor posture or acute injuries can damage muscles in the neck or back, causing painful spasms that can also affect nerves.

  • Sciatica

But while both the back and the neck can experience the same types of problems, they also have their own specific vulnerabilities and produce their own brand of symptoms. For example, a herniated disc in the lower back might cause low back pain and leg pain (sciatica), while a herniated cervical disc, a common occurrence in whiplash, may cause neck pain and pain or tingling in the arms (cervical radiculopathy).

The Chiropractic Path to Edmonds Back Pain Treatment or Neck Pain Relief

Chiropractic adjustments can relieve both back pain and neck pain by freeing up individual joints that have lost mobility due to a spinal misalignment. Precise manipulation of the joints can re-situate them so they can move freely and without pain once more. Cervical adjustments can not only relieve acute neck pain; they can also normalize the angle of your skull to relieve chronic neck muscle strain. Lumbar adjustments can relieve sciatica symptoms and low back pain.
