The cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction making the neck very susceptible to pain and injury from whiplash, poor posture, obesity, stress and simply growing older.
A neck adjustment or cervical manipulation, is a precise procedure applied to the joints of the neck. A neck adjustment works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion; it can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles. Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness.
Laser Therapy is an out patient non-surgical therapeutic modality that has been shown to reduce inflammation that causes pain while accelerating the healing process. It offers non-invasive treatment to promote healing for those who suffer from pain in muscles, nerves and joints, like that associated with chronic knee pain.
Patients treated with Laser Therapy often show a higher level of function, both during and after the treatment period. This therapy provides a conservative and low cost alternative to those facing surgery as well as those who are not yet surgical candidates, but are bothered by the side effects of drug management or where drug management is ineffective.
