Neck Sprains and Strains with Your Midtown New York Chiropractor
Neck injuries can create some of the most painful health challenges. They can negatively impact one's ability to function properly and decrease his or her range of motion. When neck sprains and strains occur, the resulting pain can hamper your efforts to turn your head freely. They can make finding a comfortable sitting position seem virtually impossible, and can also result in insomnia.
If you live or work in the general vicinity of Rockefeller Center, Dr. Alan Belsky, your Midtown neck pain doctor, can quickly and efficiently diagnose the underlying causes related to your pain, and can also provide all-natural, non-evasive therapies to help put you back on track. Dr. Belsky's services include:
- Chiropractic / Manipulative Therapy (Adjustments)
- Sports Medicine
- Physical Therapy
What Causes Neck Sprains and Strains?
When it comes to the area surrounding the neck, stability is often compromised for mobility. This makes this area of the body particularly vulnerable. Neck sprains and strains can occur when one has a job that requires prolonged or repetitive neck extension. Some people injure their necks merely as the result of having bad posture, or from sleeping in the wrong position.
Why Chiropractic Medicine?
More and more people are turning to chiropractic medicine for treatment. Oftentimes, when patients present to traditional doctors with neck sprains and strains, they are given prescriptions for expensive pain medications that can negatively affect their lives. For instance, some pain medication causes patients to feel drowsy, making it impossible for them to drive or concentrate on their work. Certain types of pain medication are addictive. These medications do not necessarily change or improve the injury. They merely mask the symptoms.
It is not unusual for a doctor to schedule surgery to treat some neck or back injuries, or to prescribe a rigorous physical therapy that places even more stress on the injury. A chiropractor is much more likely to prescribe non-evasive treatments and to embark upon gentler physical therapy work. Chiropractic treatments are safe, effective and affordable, and often result in improving one's overall health.
