It is the fourth leading cause of disability around the world. If you are struggling with neck pain, the team at Armeli Chiropractic in Mendota Heights can help. We will focus on the root cause of your pain, not simply the pain itself. We will ensure it does not become a chronic condition, so you can get back to living your life to the fullest.
How a Chiropractor Treats Neck Pain
When you make an appointment at Armeli Chiropractic for neck pain treatment, Dr. Armeli and his team will take a multi-pronged approach to your care, beginning with a full patient evaluation. We will get to know you, your medical history, nutrition habits, stress level, and lifestyle. From there, our doctor will examine your spine, so we can determine if the issue causing your neck pain is isolated to the neck or elsewhere within the spine. After the examination, Dr. Armeli will create a treatment plan that may include one or more of the following modalities:
Spinal manipulation: We will use various spinal adjustment techniques, including the flexion-distraction technique, which involves using our hands to pump on the intervertebral disc, to treat your back. We may also use instrument-assisted spinal manipulation and specific spinal manipulation, which involves using gentle thrusts to help restore joint movement.
Soft tissue therapy: This treatment will help us rehabilitate and treat your muscle tension, sprains, strains, hypoxia, tendonitis, or tears.
Massage therapy: Used in conjunction with other therapies, therapeutic massage can help relax tense muscles and aid in your rehabilitation.
Trigger point therapy: For this therapy, we will use applied pressure to alleviate pain in specific areas.
Ultrasound therapy: Ultrasound technology can send sound waves into your muscle tissues to help with tension and pain.
Patient education: Your treatment does not end when you leave our office. We will also provide advice on ways you can help your neck at home. This will include exercises, changes to your diet, and even how you can change your posture.
