When you visit a chiropractor at one of our offices, they may recommend a cervical adjustment. This type of neck adjustment is a precise type of procedure designed to treat headaches, relieve tension in your neck, and align your upper spine. Many of our patients come to see us for a cervical adjustment when looking for a less invasive approach to managing their pain and discomfort than pharmaceuticals and surgery.
Your chiropractor may recommend a cervical adjustment if you experience any of the following:
- Chronic neck pain
- Ongoing shoulder pain
- Chronic headaches and migraines
- Balance issues
- Post-concussion syndrome
One question our patients often ask us is whether a cervical adjustment is safe. The answer is that when performed by a qualified professional, a neck adjustment is perfectly safe, especially since the process involves aligning the upper cervical spine instead of just cracking the neck.
When you see a chiropractor for a cervical adjustment, they may use several methods to perform the adjustment. Depending on the specifics of your situation, they may have you sit on a specialized table or simply use their hands to make the adjustment.
We would be happy to tell you more about what a cervical adjustment involves and why it can be a beneficial option for relieving neck pain and other issues with your neck. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and confident when you see a chiropractor at one of our offices.
