Neck pain and dysfunction can have a major impact on your quality of life. Whether you wake up each morning with a stiff neck, have recently been in a car accident and suffered a whiplash injury, or experience stiffness and soreness after sitting for extended periods, Clermont FL chiropractic care can help. At Michaux Family Chiropractic we take neck pain very seriously. Our chiropractor in Minneola understands just how frustrating neck pain can be and is committed to helping you safely manage this pain without the need for medication or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy treatments can make a big difference for your overall health by relieving pain and bringing mobility back to the neck.
During your first meeting, our chiropractor, Dr. Kurtis Michaux, will take a full medical history and conduct a comprehensive physical exam. This information will aid Dr. Michaux in identifying the root cause for your pain and creating a custom treatment plan to alleviate this pain. In many cases, an untreated accident injury resulting in a spinal misalignment, like whiplash, is the cause for this pain. For other patients, a neck muscle strain may result from common activities that adversely impact posture. For example, an awkward driving position, leaning too far forward while typing or using a computer, or sleeping without proper neck support, can all strain the cervical spine. Without effective treatment, any form of trauma to the neck can lead to long-term health problems.
If a spinal misalignment in the neck is triggering your pain, gentle chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment option for restoring correct alignment and alleviating this pain. For example, a whiplash injury occurs when the force of a rear-impact car accident literally “whips” the cervical spine out of alignment. This misalignment may place pressure on the nearby nerves and muscles, triggering pain and reducing mobility. Chiropractic adjustments, along with spinal decompression therapy, can help alleviate this pain by reducing nerve compression and restoring correct alignment to the spine.
Our Clermont FL chiropractor Dr. Michaux frequently integrates chiropractic adjustments with complementary therapies such as mechanical traction and corrective exercises. These treatments help reducing swelling and inflammation after an injury. If poor posture is contributing to your neck pain, Dr. Michaux will teach you corrective exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home to improve your posture. Simple ergonomic changes to your work place, like adjusting the height of your office chair or position of your computer keyboard, can also help.
At Michaux Family Chiropractic, we take your neck pain very seriously. One of the things that set our practice apart is our individual approach to managing pain and our commitment to enhancing patient wellness. Through a careful diagnostic evaluation and personalized treatment plan, we help patients from Clermont, Minneola, and Groveland, FL safely manage their neck pain, reduce the risk for future injury, and enhance your health from within.
