Neck and Shoulder Pain
Q & A
What causes neck and shoulder pain?
Most often, neck and shoulder pain results from soft tissue damage, which means your muscles, tendons, and ligaments have become tight or strained. Less common causes are degenerative disease, poor posture, trauma, or genetic abnormalities. Pain also stems from frozen shoulder, pinched nerves, or overuse.
Tickle Chiro helps you determine the reason for your shoulder or neck pain and helps you manage it using cold laser therapy or chiropractic adjustments. He will gladly answer any questions or concerns you have before beginning treatment.
How does Dr. Tickle treat neck pain and shoulder pain?
Dr. Tickle uses cold laser therapy as a primary treatment. This involves applying low-level lasers to the affected area to stimulate healing deep at the cellular level. Chiropractic adjustments, which involve moving, stretching, and manipulating the spine, also assist in relieving tight neck or shoulder muscles and loosening up ligaments to get you back to living a pain-free life.
What is cold laser therapy?
Cold laser therapy features a hand-held device that emits a light at a specific frequency that penetrates the upper layers of the skin. The light stimulates cells to naturally reduce inflammation and prompt healing. It’s a highly effective, non-invasive therapy that causes no pain or side effects.
