Could chiropractic treatment relieve my neck pain?

"If you've ever dealt with pain, reduced mobility or stiffness from a sore neck, you know how vital it is to get relief before returning to your normal activities," says Dr. Amy Turner, a specialist in Chiropractic Medicine at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "In many cases, chiropractic treatment is a good option for pain relief without surgery."

According to Dr. Turner, much neck pain is due to muscle spasms, pinched nerves, poor
posture or failing to adequately stretch before exercising.

"Depending on the exact cause of the pain, chiropractic treatment can offer a good deal of relief," she says.

What about more serious injuries?

"When the neck is forced beyond the normal range of motion, as in auto accidents, contact-sport activities or accidental falls, the patient may suffer a whiplash injury," says Dr. Turner, who uses a combination of manual manipulation and pressure techniques to help provide pain relief.

These same techniques may also be used to help relieve low-back pain and recurring headaches.

If a patient would benefit from treatment by another specialist, Dr. Turner will refer them to another physician or surgeon.

"Preventing neck and back problems can be the healthiest option of all. Try to maintain a healthy weight range, practice good posture and exercise regularly," concludes Dr. Turner who cares for patients at Kelsey-Seybold's Pearland Clinic, Pasadena Clinic, Tanglewood Clinic and Main Campus.
