Safe chiropractic technique for neck pain in Colorado Springs

When dealing with acute or chronic neck pain, many people seek natural solutions including chiropractic care. However, not everyone is comfortable with a traditional manipulation that involves twisting or “popping” the neck. These individuals may live with unnecessary pain due to the fear of having an aggressive adjustment performed. If you fall into this category, the good news is that there are other options for correcting the issues underlying neck pain. Colorado Springs chiropractor Dr. John Stenberg uses the safe, gentle, and effective Blair Technique to correct the spine without twisting, popping, or cracking. This is accomplished by using advanced diagnostic testing to pinpoint areas of dysfunction that can trigger symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Chronic upper back tension

  • Numbness/tingling in the arms or hands

  • Restricted movement of the neck

What causes neck pain?

Understanding the source of your neck pain is the key to achieving last results. The cervical spine (neck region) is unique in its structural characteristics, mechanical motion, and sensitivity to the nerves and tissues of the head and neck. When injuries such as whiplash, concussion, falls, repetitive poor posture, etc. damage the supporting connective tissue of the spine, the movement of the neck becomes compromised. Over time, the accumulation of wear and tear in the joints, ligaments, muscles, and nerves in the neck region boils over and produces the symptoms described above. Atlas Displacement Complex

Atlas Displacement Complex is a structural condition of the upper neck that results in a displacement or shifting of the alignment of the skull and first several vertebrae. Being near the brain, Atlas Displacement Complex can trigger a stress response in the nerve system of the body, promoting hyperactive muscles, chronic tension, limited range of motion, and ultimate neck pain.

Colorado Springs chiropractor Dr. John Stenberg helps patients to resolve Atlas Displacement, which results in elimination of pain, improvement in posture and range of motion, and a return to normal activities. Utilizing the Blair Technique, Dr. Stenberg provides a safe, gentle, and effective method of naturally relieving neck pain without twisting, popping, or cracking the neck.

To see if Atlas Displacement Complex may be the underlying source of your neck pain, contact Zenith Chiropractic in Colorado Springs to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. John Stenberg. A consultation is a simple conversation to learn about your needs and determine the next best steps, and there is no obligation.
