Chiropractic can provide outstanding relief to those suffering from acute or chronic pain in their neck or shoulders. By addressing the underlying cause of the pain in a natural and non-invasive way, a chiropractic doctor can relieve pain, restore motion and flexibility, and allow patients to feel healthier than ever.
A chiropractor will interview the patient about their medical history, and conduct a complete physical exam to determine the cause of the pain. Next, a plan of care will be developed that is specifically tailored to the patient. This plan could involve spinal manipulation and other manual therapies as well as exercise, diet, and changes to the patient’s lifestyle to reduce the chances of recurrence in the future.
Chiropractic care does not end with adjusting the spine. It rather encompasses a holistic approach to wellness that covers the patient’s entire body and lifestyle. This can result in a level of healing and health that many patients have never before experienced.
Most often, pain in the neck occurs as the result of muscle strains, injury or overuse. Pain in the neck also occurs in people who hold poor posture, suffer whiplash from car accidents, or even suffer joint wear or diseases that accompany age.
Shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of factors including:
Understanding these causes is the first step in restoring healthy function. Dr. Matt Baker at Baker Chiropractic & Rehab is experienced and trained in addressing all manner of injuries and conditions that result in this kind of pain and discomfort and has provided relief for neck and shoulder injuries to Maryville, MO patients since 2009.
