Neck Pain Treatment at Our Clovis and Fresno Chiropractic Center
If you're suffering from neck pain and you've heard about the power of chiropractic care to relieve that nagging ache, you've probably been wondering which chiropractor is right for you. Fortunately, you've taken the first step toward making that right choice by consulting our website. At our Clovis and Fresno chiropractic center, Sunnyside Wellness & Chiropractic Clinic, we can treat your pain by correcting the underlying issues at its source.
Neck Pain Explained
Even when the cause of your neck pain is no mystery, the actual damage or functional issues associated with it can be less obvious. Some acute neck injuries can cause multiple potential causes of neck pain. For instance, the high-speed, back-and-forth head motion that causes whiplash may damage the soft tissues in the neck (which in turn may cause painful scar tissue to form), allow herniated discs to press against nerve tissue and force cervical spinal joints out of their normal position.
But neck pain may not be related to an acute injury. Chronic neck pain may occur for a variety of reasons, growing ever more painful over a long period of time. Degenerative problems in the cervical spine such as facet joint arthritis, cervical spinal stenosis, and bulging discs can leave you with ongoing neck pain and stiffness. Occupational overuse can also make your neck ache, whether it involves constant craning or twisting due to sports activities or "text neck," the bane of the mobile-device user. Neck pain and shoulder pain can also be closely related, with each component referring pain signals to the other.
Natural Answers From Our Clovis and Fresno Chiropractor
Before you take such extreme measures such as heavy painkillers or neck surgery, pay a visit to our Clovis and Fresno chiropractor. Dr. Thomas Potigian can inspect your cervical spinal alignment, discuss your symptoms with you, and find the exact cause of your suffering. (We may even discover that we need to treat your shoulder instead of your neck.)
Most underlying causes of neck pain can respond well to conservative treatment. If your cervical spine has fallen out of alignment, chiropractic adjustments can restore normal joint and disc position. Rapid Release Technique can release the grip of internal scar tissue, improving neck mobility and reducing stiffness. Weak or damaged muscles and connective tissues can be rehabilitated through corrective exercises, while our postural evaluation service can identify bad habits that need to be fixed. Each service complements and enhances the effectiveness of the others, providing holistic pain relief without any need for drugs or surgery.
