Acute Neck Pain
The sudden onset of acute neck pain is an exceedingly common presenting complaint at chiropractic clinics. Our clinic is located in HSR Layout where it is not uncommon for employees to sit at their desks working at computers with one or more screens in constrained postures for long periods of time – for most, each and every day.
This places great strain on the neck itself as well as the supporting musculature. Other causes of acute neck pain include heavy lifting, sporting activities, sleeping in awkward positions and stress. Cupping Therapy treatment of neck pain patients has been extensively researched and has been found to be clinically effective, safe and cost-effective.
Initially, the Doctor will interview and examine the patient in order to determine whether Cupping care is appropriate. A treatment plan will be decided upon and great emphasis is placed on patient participation and understanding.
Most acute episodes of acute neck pain are easily managed and patients can expect significant improvement within a few days and a week is usually sufficient to complete treatment.
Cupping therapy care consists of Wet/Dry Cupping, spinal manipulation/ mobilization, soft tissue treatment and advice regarding “over the counter” medication, ice/heat and other factors that are of relevance to the individual patient.
Preventative therapy is usually exercise focused and carried out under supervision at our clinic gym. Advice regarding work, leisure activities, general health issues that may affect the spine and individually related issues also form the basis of your preventative care.
