Many of my patients have previously been prescribed pain killers or anti-inflammatory medications for their neck and back pain.  These pills often work well to mask pain, but do not address the underlying cause of pain and inflammation.  Some patients don’t find symptom relief at all from these types of medications.

Neck and/or back pain are often caused by a misalignment in bones of the spine, or vertebrae.  When these bones misalign, they can irritate nerves and muscles in the corresponding area and cause significant discomfort.  Long term misalignment and irritation can cause permanent damage to soft tissues, nerves, bones and even vertebral discs in the area.

Misalignments of the neck and back can be gently and safely corrected.  With the use of an advanced chiropractic technique called Atlas Orthogonality, there is no need for twisting or popping of the neck or back.  The spine can be realigned precisely and gently, without pain or discomfort to the patient.  For more information on how this is possible, visit my website at www.precisionchirowest.com.

Many patients are able to decrease or even eliminate their need for pain medication while receiving this type of care.  It is painless and very safe – a great alternative to invasive medication or surgery.
