Neck pain is a pervasive problem in the United States. Studies show that between 20 and 70 percent of adults will have neck pain that impedes their routine during their lifetimes. What’s more, 10 to 20 percent will complain about neck pain symptoms at any given time. It’s no wonder that countless people reach for pain medication to find relief. Others turn to a more natural approach, such as chiropractic care, as an alternative.
When you visit your chiropractor, one of the first things that they will do will be to assess your body and your symptoms to confirm a diagnosis of sciatica. Once this has been established, the treatment you will be offered may vary depending on the severity of your symptoms and the way in which your body responds to treatment.
