When a bone in your neck moves out of its proper position, your muscles tighten to safeguard the area. As a result, some ligaments get stretched, the joint space stops moving properly, and nerves can be pinched. If the injury doesn’t get addressed, it can lead to early on-set of Osteoarthritis and Degenerative Disc Disease.
At Lynch Chiropractic in Charlottesville, there are gentle and specific ways to help you reposition the bones and discs in your neck so your muscles relax and you can be on your path to recovery. Some therapies to eliminate neck and/or shoulder pain may include:
- Atlas Orthogonal (“AO”): Numerous studies show that AO Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for neck pain. AO is an instrument based adjusting program that moves the top vertebra (bone) back level under the base of the skull and helps straighten out the rest of the spine.
- Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT also known as cold laser): LLLT speeds healing. We’ve been successfully applying cold laser since 2006. LLLT therapy quickly and dramatically reduces acute and chronic pain by reducing inflammation, reducing free radical production and oxidative stress, improves blood flow, enhances tissue repair and improves cellular energy production.
- Rapid Release Therapy (“RRT”): RRT helps break up scar tissue to improve range of motion, relax muscles and improve blood flow.
- Full Spine Instrument Adjusting: Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain and discomfort, reduce inflammation, improve your flexibility, increase your range of motion, restore joint motion, improve your nervous system and prevent early on-set of Osteoarthritis.
There is never any twisting or thrusting motions in our treatments. All treatment is safe, doesn’t hurt and our patients say it feels great.
