Chiropractic treatments are known as a safe, non-invasive way of therapy that is available for treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints and injuries. The risks when going to a chiropractor are very small. Most patients feel immediate relief following their chiropractic treatment. Research shows that minor soreness may occur with some following spinal manipulation. This typically diminishes after 24 hours.
Neck pain, along with some types of headaches can be treated through careful cervical manipulation. Cervical manipulation, usually called a neck adjustment, improves the necks joint mobility and restores range of motion. This reduces pressure and tension, relieving pain. Progressive Health and Rehab Corp. does this carefully, making sure that no injury occurs.
As long as you are specific with your pain description when seeing your doctor of chiropractic, you will receive the safest and most effective treatment, even when it involves referral to another health care provider.
When discussing the risks of any medical procedure, it is very important to look at that risk in comparison to other treatments available for the same condition. Risks associated with some of the most common treatments done for musculoskeletal pain—over-the-counter or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and prescription painkillers—are significantly greater than those done by chiropractic manipulation.
