At Accelerate Chiropractic, we take care a LOT of neck problems. Chronic neck problems (including headaches, disc herniations, TMJ) can be extremely debilitating and tremendously limit the lifestyle of someone who has them.
Many patients who come to us with chronic neck pain problems have been told that they need surgery. We pride ourselves on being able to help those who consider us their “last resort.” Most of the neck patients that come to Accelerate Chiropractic have been dealing with pain and loss of function for a significant period of time. We have seen patients that have had multiple failed surgeries, received botox injections into their muscles hoping for relief, and have had to give up working and hobbies due to their disability.
Dr. Bartemus takes a systems approach to neck patients. Just because the pain is in your neck, doesn’t mean that the cause is in your neck. With many patients who “have been to every doctor”, the problem is elsewhere and has never been addressed due to the medical model’s focus on treating the pain area. Dr. Bartemus examines and assesses the painful area (ie, the neck), but he also examines and assesses the rest of the body. This is because of the FACT that our bodies are a closed system and everything is connected to everything. For example, your neck pain could be caused by a fallen arch on your left foot. Or your neck pain could be caused by weak core muscles and the compensation strategy adopted to keep you functioning. Or it could be caused by Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues.
The point is, if we don’t find and address the true cause, your neck pain will never go away.
After we have done a full assessment we will let you know if you qualify for our chronic neck pain program. If you do, your care program may consist of one or more of the following:
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Spinal adjustments
- Origin/Insertion work on the muscles found to be dysfunctional
If we accept you, our goal of care will be help you avoid surgery, tremendously decrease or completely eliminate pain and improve stability and motion. If for any reason we believe that your problem is too serious for this program to correct we will tell you that.
