Neck Pain Relief in Sedalia

Man holding his neck in painIn our modern society, with all the time we spend looking at computer screens, phones and tablets, neck pain is more common than ever. Pain relieving medications only mask symptoms, leaving the underlying problem to worsen over time.

Instead, chiropractic care at Longie Chiropractic offers a natural, drug-free alternative that corrects the underlying cause of your pain so you can get back to doing all the things you love to do!

What Causes Neck Pain?

Anytime a cervical (neck) vertebra gets out of alignment, it can cause pressure on the surrounding nerves, which causes the muscles to tighten. The result? That all-too-familiar pain in the neck!

Forward head posture, which is also called tech neck, is caused by the postural stress of looking down at computer screens and texting.

Our Approach

When you come in for your initial evaluation, we’ll do a thorough assessment, including spinal X-rays. X-rays are important in identifying the specific vertebrae that are out of alignment. In addition, they can often reveal other health issues—Dr. Rick has identified spinal cancer in patients because of our in-depth approach.

For most patients with tech neck or other cervical misalignments, we use a gentle manual technique called Gonstead Technique. For our patients who don’t tolerate or don’t prefer manual adjustments, we use the ArthroStim® adjusting instrument. Both techniques allow us to perform very specific adjustments to correct the alignment of your neck and relieve the pressure on the nerves.

Our care is specifically tailored to your condition, and your recovery process will be based on the severity of the spinal misalignment and the presence of any joint damage.

How You Can Help

Limiting technology time and varying your head position while using devices can help. Sleeping with a good pillow and getting plenty of water are also things you can do at home to improve your spinal health.
