Do you carry stress and tension in your neck and shoulders? Neck pain is a very common, but often very painful, condition. You don’t have to live with that pain, and if you’re like most people, you won’t have to resort to surgery to get relief.
Is your neck pain normal, or does it require treatment? If you say “ouch” when you look down at your chest, up at the ceiling, or turn your head to the right or left, you need treatment. This kind of pain is not normal and can even lead to additional health conditions.
At Natural Foundations, we are trained extensively in the diagnosis and care of neck pain conditions using non-invasive methods to relieve the pain, restore range of motion, and even prevent the need for surgery in many cases. We have had a great deal of success in helping our patients achieve long-term healing and relief from neck and shoulder issues, whether they have suffered for a short time or for years.
After a thorough neuromuscular examination of the function of your neck, shoulders, and spine, including reflexes, muscle control, balance, and alignment, we can prescribe a comprehensive therapeutic regimen for all sorts of neck and shoulder issues, including:
- Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Muscle weakness
- Numbness and tingling
Cold Laser Therapy for Rapid Healing of the Neck and Shoulders
Besides traditional therapies of adjusting/realigning the spine and shoulder joints, as well as massage on the muscles of the neck and shoulders, we provide cold laser therapy. This leading edge treatment using devices like the MLS Class IV Robotic Therapeutic Laser and Erchonia Cold Class 3 Laser is pain-free and often used in physical therapy and sports medicine with top athletes, such as the New York Yankees.
The body’s natural healing process is stimulated by cold laser therapy so that it promotes the repair of injuries to the muscles, nerves, and joints of the neck and shoulders – permanently. It has a high success rate for patients who wish to return to strenuous jobs or participate in sports activities.
These lasers heal and reduce pain by:
- Promoting cell growth to speed healing
- Increasing blood circulation
- Stimulating nerve function
- Reducing inflammation
- Inhibiting the formation of scar tissue
- Enhancing mobility
Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy
This technology uses a machine to send magnetic pulses to the source of the pain. Rather than treat symptoms, pulsed magnetic field therapy gets to the source of the problem and actually heals injuries non-surgically.
