Neck pain? Do you suffer from chronic neck pain

Above picture shows a "Pinched nerve" in the neck

As a NYC Chiropractor I see so many patients that suffer with Neck pain

I wanted to explain some of the common causes of Neck pain and how Non-surgical spinal decompression can help.

Herniated Discs
bulging Discs
Degenerative Disc Disease

 Common causes of Neck Pain

a herniated disc (also referred to as a protruding or extruded disc) is a condition where a portion of the gel-like center of the disc has migrated through the layers of the annulus fibrosis.
This can cause mechanical pressure on neighboring structures and trigger chemical reactions resulting in pain and inflammation. These changes will often irritate the nerves, producing numbness or tingling in the arms or hands.
Degenerative disc disease is a state of dehydration and deterioration marked by the gradual erosion of the disc's ability to distribute and resist mechanical loads. As discs deteriorate, they become more susceptible to injury from physical stress. Degenerative disc disease may also play a contributing role in conditions such as disc bulges, disc herniations,and stenosis.

Who are the best candidates for DRX 9000C treatments?

Patients that may benefit most from the DRX9000C are those diagnosed with herniated discs,bulging discs and degenerative disc disease.
What may I experience during the course of treatment?

Some patients may experience light side effects with this type of therapy. Mild muscular soreness during or after  treatment may occur. the sensation would be similar to what a person might experience at the onset of a new exercise regimen.
Most patient find the therapy quite comfortable and relaxing. During an average 30-45 minute treatment, most patients experience a gentle stretch in the cervical spine and tend to fall asleep.
Adjunctive therapies to non-surgical spinal decompression typically include electrical stimulation and cold therapy.
Cold laser therapy is another tool that we use in our office to help with patients that suffer with neck pain.
