Neck Pain: Whether caused by poor sleeping habits, work posture, sporting activities, or a whiplash injury, may be effectively treated and resolved with Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy. Class IV Laser Therapy can also be effective. The combination may result in accelerated healing with increased function in a shorter period of time.
Maintaining proper spinal posture is essential to maintaining good health. The Cervical Spine, commonly called the Neck, is made up of seven bones called vertebra. Each of these vertebra functions independently of each other but as a whole make up our Cervical Spine or Neck. The Cervical spine should have a normal anterior convex curve allowing the spinal cord to travel from the brain downward through the spinal canal passing each vertebra. Spinal nerve roots originating from spinal cord exit the spine between each vertebra to carry the Life Force of Nerve Energy to each cell. Through external forces described above we could experience loss of function to a vertebra; termed a Subluxation. The loss of joint function can lead to a cascade of problems such as: specific joint irritation, disc bulge /herniation, pinched nerve, edema and muscle spasms, causing the symptoms of: Neck Pain, Headaches, Arm Numbness Tingling or Pain.
Dr. Glen Batson of Batson Chiropractic Willowbrook, utilizes very specific, gentle, non-twisting Chiropractic procedures taught through Palmer College of Chiropractic and The Pierce Technique to restore joint function and correction of posture. Dr. Batson utilizes drop table techniques and percussor technology to perform these very specific adjustment techniques to accomplish the task of restoring the cervical curve and the head position over the shoulders: Proper Posture.
Dr. Batson utilizes Class IV K-Laser Therapy to reduce the inflammation of the spinal joints and muscles of the neck, enhance circulation and healing at the cellular level by increasing metabolic activity within the cells stimulating transport of nutrients across each cell membrane initiating increased production of cellular energy (ATP). The production of ATP leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of healing and REDUCTION of PAIN!
