Neck Pain Relief

Scientific research has proven that chiropractic corrective care decreases neck pain by removing neurological interference and restoring proper biomechanics to the spine.

Here are the results:

 

  • Decreased neck pain

  • Improved range of motion in the cervical spine

  • Reduced medical costs

  • Decreased medication consumption

  • Restored postural imbalances and biomechanics

  • Decreased muscle spasm and inflammation

  • Decreased numbness and tingling of the arms     

 

Everyone can enjoy the benefits of specific scientific chiropractic care. Who do you know that would benefit from understanding that they can reduce the amount of medication they take and improve their overall quality of life through chiropractic corrective care?

"In a study funded by NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to test the effectiveness of different approaches for treating mechanical neck pain, 272 participants were divided into three groups that received either spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) from a doctor of chiropractic (DC), pain medication (over-the-counter pain relievers, narcotics and muscle relaxants) or exercise recommendations. After 12 weeks, about 57 percent of those who met with DCs and 48 percent who exercised reported at least a 75 percent reduction in pain, compared to 33 percent of the people in the medication group. After one year, approximately 53 percent of the drug-free groups continued to report at least a 75 percent reduction in pain; compared to just 38 percent pain reduction among those who took medication."

~ Bronfort et al. (2012), Annals of Internal Medicine

“Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients. Results from observational studies suggested that back pain patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than with medical care. Additionally, studies conclude that patients were more satisfied with chiropractic care than they were with physical therapy after six weeks.”

~ Hertzman-Miller et al (2002), American Journal of Public Health

NECK PAIN

What brought me into the office was months of treatment with steroids and physical therapy for bulging disc in my neck and lower back.  I was right back where I started. The pain was severe and constant and the only treatments recommended were repeats of what I had already done.  Even though the doctor warned against Chiropractic treatments I decided to try Dr. Meshew on a friend’s recommendation.

Results:
By my second visit for Chiropractic treatment, the pain was drastically reduced.  Within three weeks my pain was totally gone.  Acupuncture treatments have also helped.  While my numbness is not gone (in the hand), it is significantly reduced ad continues to improve.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Meshew!

NECK PAIN & STIFFNESS

What originally brought me into Dr. Meshew’s office was reoccurring neck stiffness & pain with numbness in my fingers. The Chiropractic results are amazingly quick within 1-3 treatments. I like the varied treatment approach that she uses. Nothing is “canning”.   Dr. Meshew responds to what is needed and has a wide variety of ways in bringing relief. I have also referred my daughter in for care who reported that she was pleased at the results, (Having tried many doctors before finding her).

Thank you Dr. Christine Meshew
