One question that I hear all the time from my patients is “how does my wife or husband know if they should be seeing a chiropractor?” There are multiple ways to know if you should be seeing a chiropractor and not all of them have to do with pain and discomfort. I have developed a test for the neck to determine if you are a candidate for chiropractic care called the “head turn test”.
Spinal decompression treatment was FDA cleared back in 1996. It is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat bulging and herniated discs in the neck and low back. This drugless and non-invasive treatment has no side effects. Over the past 15 years its popularity has been rising as it represents an excellent alternative to surgery. The cost of spinal decompression is less than 5% of the cost of surgery, and the risk profile is very low.
One of the most annoying things that chiropractic patients complain of is stiff neck pain, more so if it recurs often within short span of time. In San Diego, many people come to New Century Spine Centers to get rid of their neck pain. It is very important that you get permanent relief from this pain rather than ignoring it and taking self medication.
Neck and shoulder pain can emerge due to a number of reasons. It may happen if the soft tissues like tendons, muscles and ligaments within this region get injured. Other causes may include lifting of heavy weights, following wrong postures while sleeping or resting and the like. Usually this pain stays for about 2-3 days, depending on the cause; but if it is too serious, it may linger for a longer period of time. Tension, stress and the kind of lifestyle persons lead are also some of the very crucial causes of such pain.
