An average human head weighs about 12 pounds, which means your neck constantly works to balance and sustain a considerable amount of weight. Neck pain is one of the many conditions that Dr. Megan Hondru treats at Brooklyn Chiropractic Studio in Brooklyn, New York. With effective chiropractic adjustments and other holistic treatment methods, Dr. Megan helps patients improve mobility, ease tension, and reduce pain in the neck and other areas of the body.
The cervical spine, which extends from the base of your skull to about your mid-shoulder region, contains seven delicate vertebrae that can be damaged or compromised. When this happens, acute or chronic neck pain can occur.
There are many different causes of neck pain, but some contributing factors may include:
At Brooklyn Chiropractic Studio, Dr. Megan is committed to understanding the cause of your neck pain. To do this, she performs a comprehensive initial assessment of your health history and your symptoms. She may also recommend X-Rays, if necessary.
To create a chiropractic care plan that resolves your pain, Dr. Megan may assess your reflexes, the strength of your muscles, and your posture. Using specific adjustments, she can relieve acute pain and get you on a path to healing.
As part of your treatment, Dr. Megan might also recommend certain types of massage, physical therapy, supplements, or lifestyle changes that support your well-being.
As a holistic and patient-centered approach, chiropractic care is an organic process: Dr. Megan can treat your symptoms as they arise and change course if necessary.
Regular chiropractic adjustments can eliminate neck pain, relieve stress, improve your posture, and enhance your flexibility and mobility, which allows your neck to have a broader range of motion and less stiffness.
