Neck pain is an ailment which affects the majority of Americans at some time in their lives and may be caused by a number of different reasons including simple muscle strains, chronic inflammation due to a previous whiplash type traumatic injury, or potentially more serious underlying pathologies. Pain in the neck region is most commonly caused by some form of joint dysfunction. The most common causes of dysfunction are simple muscle or joint dysfunction, which typically respond very well to chiropractic therapies. Neck pain is sometimes accompanied by pains which shoot into the upper extremities which could indicate a potentially more serious problem. In order for you to receive a diagnosis for your specific problem, the chiropractors at South Georgia Chiropractic will perform a series of orthopedic, neurological, and reflex testing to localize your problem to a specific location and cause. Current medical literature strongly supports the use of chiropractic therapies for the treatment of most causes of neck pain. Once the cause of your dysfunction is determined, your doctor will begin the appropriate treatment plan for your condition.
Additionally, all treatment options will be discussed with you prior to beginning care. At South Georgia Chiropractic, we establish a treatment plan that is personalized to each patient’s condition.
