The chiropractic profession is considered primary health care so are able to diagnose and treat many different conditions, including neck pain. Chiropractic focuses on nerves, muscles, ligaments and joints of the whole body with an emphasis on the spine.
Each treatment will consist of different techniques to treat the affected areas. At McFadden Chiropractic and Massage Niagara, we are manual therapists that address the complaints with hands-on health care. The treatments may consist of muscle release therapy, chiropractic adjustments, as well as acupuncture. Muscle release therapy often involves movement to stretch the muscle while treating to have a greater effect on loosening up the area. The chiropractic adjustments are to put more range of motion into certain joints that may not be moving well restricting movement. This adjustment will help decrease pain and dysfunction, and increase range of motion in the targeted areas.
The initial examination will consist of a conversation about the affected areas, a physical examination, a conversation including the diagnoses as well as options for treatment, and the first visit does include treatment.
Subsequent visits may be 15 to 25 minutes in length depending on the required treatment.
Whether nerve, foot, spine, elbow, neck pain or another ailment, give us a call today.
