Has sitting at your office desk become a literal pain in the neck? Chiropractic care can help.

With the millions of Americans who sit at their desks day in and day out at work, it's no wonder that neck pain is one of the most common neck paincomplaints that our Tampa, FL, chiropractors, Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz, and Dr. Elizabeth Gionfriddo, hear about. Poor ergonomics and bad posture are two of the most common reasons people end up dealing with back and neck problems—fortunately, our chiropractors offer several ways to alleviate your neck discomfort.

How can chiropractic care help me?

If you are dealing with neck pain and looking for an effective, non-surgical option for treating your symptoms and reducing discomfort, it might be time to turn to a chiropractic specialist in Tampa, FL, for help.

When you first come into our office, we will perform a thorough evaluation and examine the spine as a whole to look for other areas besides the neck that may be affected. This is because we focus on providing comprehensive care that treats the whole person, not just one specific injury or symptom. Once we determine the cause of your neck pain, we can create a treatment plan that will help you manage your discomfort.

One of the most common treatment options for handling neck pain is a chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation. By realigning areas of the spine that are out of whack, we take added pressure off certain nerves and tissue within the body, which in turn can get rid of neck pain. Chiropractic adjustments can also be therapeutic and relaxing, which can ease any tension you may have that could be causing your neck pain.

There are specific spinal manipulation techniques and other treatment options that can improve your neck pain including,

  • Specific spinal manipulation
  • Flexion-distraction technique
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Manual joint stretching
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Exercises

If you are dealing with neck pain in Tampa, FL, and are looking for a way to alleviate your issues for good, turn to the chiropractic experts at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy. Call (813) 884-1457 today to find out how we can improve the health and function of your body.

Find out how spinal decompression could alleviate your chronic back and neck pain.

Are you dealing with lower back pain or neck problems that you can’t seem to treat successfully? Are these symptoms making it difficult tospinal decompression sit at your office desk or get around throughout the day? If you said yes, our Tampa, FL, chiropractors, Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz and Dr. Elizabeth Gionfriddo, can provide a variety of non-surgical, drug-free, and safe treatment options to alleviate musculoskeletal complaints such as back and neck pain. One such treatment option is spinal decompression.

What is spinal decompression?

Here at our Tampa, FL, office, we offer DRX9000 spinal decompression, which is a special device that helps to gently and safely stretch and lightly pull different areas of the body to take pressure off the spine. It will also gently realign the spine, which can take pressure off irritated and pinched nerves. Spinal decompression also increases blood flow to these areas, which helps facilitate faster healing.

What can spinal decompression treat?

There are a variety of symptoms and conditions that spinal decompression can help treat. You may benefit from spinal decompression if you are dealing with back or neck pain as a result of,

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis

If you aren’t sure whether or not spinal decompression can alleviate your back or neck pain, our chiropractic specialist will be able to evaluate your symptoms during your consultation to determine if this is the best treatment option for you.

How many spinal decompression sessions will I need?

Most spinal decompression sessions last about 25 to 30 minutes and the number of sessions you will require will depend on the cause and severity of your symptoms. Spinal decompression may also be used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments to help manage your back pain more effectively.
