To diagnose neck pain and its cause, Fountain Valley Physical Medicine specialists review your symptoms, discuss your medical history, and complete a physical exam. They can use blood tests, as well as X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to pinpoint the root cause of your neck pain and come up with the most appropriate treatment.
Your personalized neck pain treatment is based on the cause and severity of your discomfort. Your chiropractic specialist could recommend:
Disc decompression traction involves techniques that gently stretch your spine into proper alignment, relieving nerve pressure and pain.
Making adjustments by manually manipulating your cervical spine helps reduce neck discomfort associated with improper alignment, bulging discs, and nerve pressure. The Fountain Valley Physical Medicine team specializes in Chiropractic BioPhysics®.
Trigger point and stem cell injections can ease pain associated with tight muscles and connective tissue, and regenerate damaged tissues.
Massage therapy helps manipulate muscles and connective tissues near your neck, head, shoulders, and back to ease long-lasting discomfort.
Muscle stimulation uses radio pulse and rapid pulse waves to relieve tension, improve blood flow, and reduce neck pain.
Laser therapy uses light energy to stimulate blood flow and your body’s natural healing capabilities.
Strength and flexibility exercise done with the guidance of a physical therapist at Fountain Valley Physical Medicine can strengthen, stretch, and reduce pain in your neck and surrounding tissues.
