Neck pain is a pain in the neck for many people. Whiplash
injury or disc herniation or disc degeneration may all in any combination or
soley be the culprits. Chiropractic care at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is
generally useful in relieving the neck pain and even correlated arm pain
for Sitka neck pain patients.
Some of our patients find us prior to selecting surgery for relief or seek
us out after a neck surgery that may not
have relieved the pain as expected.
Now, these conditions of whiplash
, disc herniation
may not only produce neck pain
, but also influence your balance and your
vision. Researchers studied these in patients. They found that cervical
proprioception plays a key role in postural control, how you see affects how
you move. (1) Most interesting!

Nowadays, some choose to undergo Sitka neck surgery
for a neck pain condition called cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees many after such
surgery, too. But researchers are exploring the optimal approaches for the best
outcomes with neck surgery. They report that anterior (from the front of the neck) approaches work better it
seems in younger neck pain patients who have less severe impairment and more
focal pathology with cervical
spondylotic myelopathy. But they also say that patients report good outcomes
with anterior and posterior approaches as long as other factors are controlled.
But if you want to try conservative care before having to
make such a decision to handle your neck pain or arm pain or cervical
spondylotic myelopathy, contact your Sitka chiropractor at

pain relief with Cox® Technic flexion distraction. Neck pain doesn’t have to be
a pain in your neck!
