Groton neck pain is most frequently stems from whiplash, a common auto accident injury. During the impact of the collision the head is thrust violently forward and then snaps back, damaging tissues and supporting muscles in the cervical area. People with poor posture from standing all day, or hunching over a computer or desk at work may also experience neck pain. Often, patients experience headache and neck pain as the result of stress which causes the neck muscles to contract and hold tension.
A frequent cause of lower back pain is sciatica. Sciatica occurs when a disc in the lumbar spine herniates or bulges out, putting pressure on the sciatic nerve and causing lower back pain which may radiate into the legs. A sports-related injury or work-related injury that causes a misalignment in the spine or damages the supporting muscles may result in pain in the back . Many patients sprain or strain their back through improper lifting or overexertion. Some patients experience back pain as the result of being overweight and need help with a healthy weight management program.
Our professional care team consists of four chiropractic physicians with a variety of skills in hands-on manipulation and adjustment, soothing massage therapy, rehabilitative physiotherapy, weight loss management, and sports injury care. Each Groton chiropractor on our team will assess the pain in your neck and back, consider your overall health situation, and develop a treatment plan to provide maximum relief.
Hands-on spinal manipulations and adjustments can treat subluxations and herniations by bringing the spinal column back into proper alignment. Traction may be recommended to relieve the pain of whiplash or sciatica by stretching the spinal column. Massage therapy is used to relieve stress in aching muscles and promote the healing flow of oxygen throughout the body. If you have suffered some type of sports injury or work-related injury we may recommend physiotherapy treatments such as corrective exercises, muscle and neural stimulation, or heat and cold therapy to help rehabilitate injured ligaments, build core strength and restore range of motion. Patients needing assistance with weight management will benefit from our weight loss program which combines a sensible nutrition plan with a smart movement plan to work your body back into shape.
