Chronic Neck Pain Treatment St Augustine
A specialist such as a chiropractor can diagnose the cause of your neck pain. He will help determine the best solution. Here are some treatment options for chronic neck pain.
This treatment option is surgery. The neck pain treatment may involve giving your neck more support, or moving it back into the right position. Your doctor may recommend making changes to your lifestyle or diet.
In the mildest form of chronic neck pain treatment, mild radiation therapy may be recommended. This treatment is usually used to treat lumbar pain. It has been proven to be safe and effective.
In moderate cases of chronic neck pain, physical therapy may be prescribed. Physical therapy is used to relieve pain caused by muscle spasms. Therapy can also correct problems with the shoulder and neck muscles.
In more severe cases of chronic neck pain, surgery may be required. The spine surgeon will remove a portion of the spinal cord, called a herniated disc. This procedure is called Spinal Decompression Inferior.
Surgery to correct spinal stenosis is not recommended for patients who are over 55 years old. It is not necessary to have surgery if you have neck pain, particularly if it does not cause you to miss work or class. You should consult with your doctor to make sure this is the right decision for you.
Spinal Decompression Inferior (SCI) is a procedure that requires a local anesthetic. During the procedure, the surgeon places a ring-shaped device that will put pressure on the spine. The pressure forces the spine to straighten, and any herniated discs are removed.
Another treatment option for chronic neck pain is exercise. Exercise is a great way to relieve pain. There are several methods of exercise that can improve your health and overall well-being.
Other forms of exercise include cervical manipulation, chiropractic, and massage. Chiropractic, or spinal adjustment, is a common method of chronic neck pain treatment. Cervical manipulation uses small hand pressure techniques to relax your neck, shoulders, and lower back.
