At Littleton Family Chiropractic & Auto Injury Center, we provide spinal corrections utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. A chiropractic adjustment is a safe form of manual therapy designed to treat various conditions such as headaches, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, and auto accident injuries and more. Restoring proper spinal alignment will reduce pain and stiffness by increasing range of motion to help normalize nerve function and reduce inflammation.
Chiropractic can be an excellent way to take care of neck pain. Most often Neck Pain is caused from irritation of the joints and muscles of the neck and upper back. While stretching is always a good idea and often necessary, it sometimes is not enough. Once the joints have become restricted that can lead to constant tension on the muscle causing all of the stretching to be short lived. By addressing the muscles and joints we can get to the source of the issue and prevent it from coming back.
Unfortunately, Back Pain has become so common in today’s day and age that when I see patients for the first time, they think it is normal. Back pain is never normal though. Between the extra strain on our back from poor neck posture, a general lack of movement due to sedentary jobs, this has become very common, not normal. Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, and rehabilitative exercises are great for not only helping rid you of these issues, but help protect you from them recurring.
Office Work Injuries
While many employers are getting better at offering better workplace ergonomics, sometimes it is just not an option. Having to spend hours a day each week in compromised positions not only causes restrictions in the spinal joints and muscles, but can change the way those joints and muscles function. Dr. Zagiba helps you make improvements to your workspace to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.
