Back & Neck Pain Relief in Penn Township & Surrounding Areas

Common Causes of Back & Neck Pain

There are hundreds of tissues in your spine, including bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, nerves, and fascia. Any one of these can become irritated or damaged, either as a result of an acute injury, an underlying disease or illness, or degenerative changes over time.

Whatever the reason for your persistent neck pain or back pain, our office can help you. We use research-based tests during our evaluation to determine the most effective treatment plan.

We Provide a Wide Variety of Treatment Options
for Back & Neck Pain:

Many people who have had an acute injury will still have neck pain or back pain long after their injury has healed. This can happen for a number of reasons. Scar tissue can develop that causes restricted mobility and movement limitations.

An injury may lead to unusual movement patterns that a person unconsciously uses to compensate for their pain, and once the injury heals the person may continue these compensatory movements which could lead to muscle weakness or postural imbalances. In some cases, a person's nervous system can go into a heightened"protection mode," causing them to feel a lot of pain even though there is no more tissue damage.

Therapeutic Exercises and Stretches

Specifically prescribed by your chiropractor to reduce inflammation, trigger tissue healing, alleviate pain, and improve strength, endurance, and range of motion.

Manual Therapies

We use myofascial release, joint mobilizations, and other hands-on approaches to improve your bodies function and mobility.
