Neck Pain

Neck pain may begin in any of the structures in the neck. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks in between. Neck pain may also come from regions near the neck, like the shoulder, jaw, head, and upper arms. Swiss DolorClast® method treatment may provide relief where other therapies have failed and should be considered as a viable non-surgical solution. Other options that may be combined are spinal manipulation and DTS for cervical disc problems as well as cervical stenosis.

Acute Torticolis

Torticollis, or wry neck, is a condition in which the head is tilted toward one side (cervical Lateral flexion), and the chin is elevated and turned toward the opposite side (cervical extension). There may be vertebral misalignment and muscle spasm chiropractic adjustments and Swiss DolorClast®  to relax muscle spasm work well to alleviate and resolve the pain.

Neck Spasm 

The neck pain when a muscle goes into spasm, all the fibers within the core of a muscle contract simultaneously. This most commonly occurs when you suddenly move or overextend a tensed-up muscle that hasn't been properly prepared for the movement. Like intense workouts before proper warmups or unexpected sudden jerks with car accidents causing whiplash effects.

 Gentle chiropractic adjustments to the spine and soft tissue manipulation, DTS and Swiss DolorClast® may be used in combination with heat and ice therapy to bring about relief.

 

Neck ache pain and stiffness

Neck ache pain may begin in any of the structures in the neck. These include muscles and nerves as well as misaligned spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks in between. Neck ache pain may also come from regions near the neck, like the shoulder, jaw, head, and upper arms. Isolating the cause and source of the pain and appropriate treatment should result in positive outcomes. Chiropractic spinal and soft tissue manipulation, DTS and Swiss DolorClast® may be used in combination with heat and ice therapy to bring about relief.

Pinched Nerve with muscle spasm

Tingling, numbness or weakness due to pinched nerves accompanies neck spasm. Pinched nerves occur when a nerve becomes compressed due to inflammation or misaligned vertebra as they exit the spine. Symptoms may include pain that affects the area around the nerve, weakness, numbness and a tingling sensation. X-ray or MRI may be useful in isolating the cause of the problem and suitable treatment can begin.

Left untreated, this problem may persist even with long term medication, resulting in deterioration of the nerve and chronic inflammation. Gradual weakness and atrophy of the muscles causing paralysis may occur if the condition remains unresolved. Gentle hiropractic spinal adjustments and soft tissue manipulation, DTS and Swiss DolorClast® may be used in combination with heat and ice therapy to bring about relief.

Neck muscle Trigger points

Trigger points are isolated focal points located in a taut band of skeletal muscle.  When touched, these trigger point produce pain that may be felt in a location far from the actual point. Trigger point pain often accompanies chronic musculoskeletal disorders and for example migraine type headaches may result from Trigger Points in the muscles at the base of the skull. 
Trigger points in the larger neck muscles, such as the tapezius, splenius and semispinalis, are a major cause of headaches. Swiss DolorClast® method treatment may provide relief where other therapies have failed and should be considered to alleviate chronic muscle thickening and shortening.
