Questions About Neck Pain
If you're thinking about seeing a chiropractor for your neck pain, you may have some of these questions.
How Long Does It Take to Get the Pain to Go Away?
Pain relief is largely dependent on how severe the injury is and a host of other factors. In most cases, however, it is possible to experience some pain relief at the end of the first appointment. The pain will often return fairly quickly, however. A series of appointments will go a long way toward getting extended periods with no pain. Typically, it takes a few weeks to a few months before pain relief is permanent.
Is There Any Way to Make Pain Relief Last Longer or Come Faster?
If you're willing to do exercises on your own, it is possible to speed up pain relief, but you have to be consistent to get real results. Your chiropractor will be able to show you how to do these exercises.
Can I Take Painkillers While I'm Seeing the Chiropractor?
Absolutely. Chiropractic care can complement care from a medical doctor. While you don't have to take painkillers, it is fine if you wish to do so. Multiple studies have shown that chiropractic care will reduce the need for pain killers.
