Chiropractic Treatments For Neck & Back Injury

Nobody wants to deal with pain in their neck or back--even minor aches can make it hard to complete daily tasks. From manual labor to poor posture, there's no shortage of things that can cause pain in these areas. According to Penn Medicine, 85% of people experience some sort of neck or back pain. Chiropractic care offers a unique solution to back and neck pain. A chiropractor can help realign the spine and reduce inflammation of the muscles and joints. The lack of invasive procedures and medications have contributed to the popularity of chiropractic care--in 2014, over 33 million adults in the U.S. visited a chiropractor!

Common Causes Of Neck Pain

Our necks do more than let us turn our heads--they support the weight of our skulls, and they protect nerves that transport sensory and motor information from the brain to the body. Thus, t's important not to ignore any sudden neck pain.

Necks consist of seven vertebrae that are made up of muscles and ligaments. When these muscles are irritated or inflamed, it can lead to mild or excessive pain. In some cases, you may experience a stabbing pain in one particular area of the neck, or an overall soreness. In more severe situations, pain may restrict your ability to turn your neck.

Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
- Poor posture
- Poor support during sleep
- Labor-intensive activities (work, sports, heavy lifting)
- Whiplash (injury from quick back-and-forth movement of the neck)
- Health condition (tumor, infection, cervical spine condition)

Chiropractors offer a non-invasive method to address neck pain and relieve muscle stress. Chiropractic neck adjustments, or cervical manipulations, helps loosen the vertebrae and minimize the effects of muscle strains or inflammation. While the effects of chiropractic care vary amongst each individual, most patients start to see results between one to three weeks after beginning treatment.

Chiropractic Treatments For Back Pain

We rely on our backs every day to support our ribs, organs, and upper bodies. Considering all of the work our backs do to assist us, it's common to experience back pain. If your back pain is severe and does not go away, it's important to receive treatment promptly.

Most back pain arises due to irritation in the muscles and joints--however, pain may sometimes occur when damage is inflicted upon the intervertebral discs.

Common causes of back pain include:
- Poor posture
- Pulled muscle (from sports or manual labor)
- Scoliosis (spinal curve above 10 degrees)
- Car accident
- Pregnancy

There are a few different methods that chiropractors use to naturally resolve back pain. These include:

- Manual chiropractic adjustments: chiropractic technique using hands to align the spine.
- Activation chiropractic adjustments: technique using an activator tool.
- Muscle Stimulation: machine designed to stimulate the affected muscles and joints.
- Manual release therapy: pressure is applied to the muscle before it is stretched.
- Trigger point therapy: direct pressure is applied to the tensest muscle.
- Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy: an instrument is used to gently apply pressure over a larger area.

Your exact treatment will depend on the cause and extent of your back pain. Call TPMI Chiropractic today to set up a free initial consultation!

Chiropractic Treatments For Lower Back Pain

Sometimes, back pain can be concentrated in the lower portion of the back. This part of your body is responsible for supporting your entire upper body and providing it with the flexibility needed to complete daily tasks.

Lower back pain can range from mild discomfort to severe aches that make it difficult to stand or walk. This typically occurs due to a pulled muscle or torn disc.

Some of the most common reasons behind lower back include:
- Bending or twisting your back in away that causes injury.
- Heavy lifting or strenuous activities.
- Disc tear or herniated disc
- Sciatica (inflammation of the sciatic nerve)
- Car accident
- Kidney infection

When it comes to low back pain, most cases are treated using manual therapy. After pressure is applied to the strained muscles, these muscles are stretched to encourage mobility and function. In some cases, you may need to undergo an x-ray or MRI testing to determine if any other treatment, such as physical therapy, is needed.

Your neck and back support your body through a number of daily processes, from organ management to ambulatory functions. Not only does pain prevent our body from carrying out essential tasks, but it can escalate if not treated efficiently.

I have met and worked with approximately a dozen chiropractors in the last 20 or so years, with many of them excellent professionals in the field. However, Dr. Schulz is far and away the best I've worked with.
I met Dr. Schulz in 2004 after a serious car accident. I was very fortunate in meeting him at that time because I believe he took months if not years off of my recovery. I have not met anyone as knowledgeable, skilled, dedicated or as caring as Dr. Schulz. With his help I am now back into tae kwon do competition.


Dr. Mark was able to resolve my son's medical issues with one appointment that 5 other medical doctors and specialists couldn't over 4 months. I trust and would recommend Dr. Mark to anyone having back and neck issues!

Father of patient

Dr. Mark is very thorough and his sports medicine knowledge is quite extensive. I know I can depend on his expertise to correct and injury and preventive adjustments to avoid re-injury.
