Neck Pain Treatment in Phoenix
Our Chiropractor Addresses Acute & Chronic Neck Pain Issues
Your neck, which is also called your cervical spine, is made up of seven small vertebrae. The beauty of the neck is its mobility, which can move in almost every direction. Unfortunately, this full range of motion movement and flexibility is the very same thing that can leave it so vulnerable to pain or injury. Often neck pain is treated with medication or surgery and, while medications and surgeries may offer some temporary relief, Dr. Stezel, after having performed a thorough exam, will gently and precisely touch your neck in specific points to restore connection and alignment of the vertebra. Gentle, non-invasive spinal adjustments are offered in our Phoenix chiropractic office as a drug-free way to treat and reduce neck pain.
While our office is located in Phoenix, we have successfully treated patients from all over the valley like Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa and Paradise Valley! Schedule your appointment by calling (602) 833-4833 today.
Through your visits Dr. Stetzel, DC will work to educate you and and help you identify some common causes of neck pain that could be affecting your health and natural ways to provide pain relief. We can schedule an evaluation to begin your chiropractic care quickly to give you the relief you need. Don’t “deal with the pain” and suffer any longer.
Frequent causes of neck pain include:
- Muscle tension. The neck supports the weight of the head, which averages about 12 pounds! Prolonged support of this weight can cause the muscles to become fatigued and tighten in response.
- Reduced physical activity. Our modern lifestyles can lead us to problems with neck pain. Spending a lot of time sitting at the computer or propping yourself up to read in bed can cause areas of pressure on the neck which can then lead to pain.
- Aging. As we get older there are lots of conditions that can directly affect the spine including: daily wear and tear, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
Other common causes can include emotional stress, physical trauma such as car accidents, chemical toxins, or nutritional deficiencies. Often it is a combination of causes which is why a consultation and in-office exam is important to help identify the most likely cause(s).
How Our Neck Pain Treatment Works
Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC is pleased to offer an advanced and evidence-based treatment for pain called Network Spinal Analysis. This treatment approach focuses on communicating with the nervous system to release the tension that causes pain. This practice works to correct one of the most common underlying causes of neck pain: tension. With Network Spinal Analysis, the chiropractor works to improve the process of communication between your joints and nervous system to alleviate and prevent pain. This also results in greater overall health as the process enhances your mind-body awareness.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Alan Frandsen, DC, can gently loosen tight neck muscles and ligaments, reducing pressure and muscle tension through the use of Network Spinal chiropractic care. Network’s approach varies primarily in the process of adjusting the nervous system to affect the structure whereas traditional chiropractic adjusts the structure to adjust the nervous system. With a great reduction in muscle tension, you in turn experience less neck pain. Once we have succeeded in reducing the strain on your neck muscles, ongoing performance of periodic adjustments is a great maintenance practice to maintain spinal and neck alignment, ensuring that tension does not return. The beauty of Network Spinal and chiropractic case is that because our approach is drug-free, you can use it with or instead of traditional neck pain treatments!
