In the US, the annual cost of back and neck pain is about $88 billion per year. Only cancer, diabetes, and heart disease cost Americans more money. Sadly, despite all of that money being spent, most people are not finding satisfying ways to get resolution from the pain.
Since spine pain affects approximately 80% of people at some point in life, these statists raise a few questions. First of all, is there a reliable way to find relief from pain? And second, is there an affordable way to seek care. Let’s take a closer look at upper cervical chiropractic.
How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Can Help with Neck Pain
When the C1 and C2 vertebrae become misaligned, pressure can be placed on various nerves and soft tissue. As a result, pain can occur in the neck or even in the back and shoulders. By relieving the pressure on these nerves and muscles, pain can be helped.
Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic a Cost-Effective Solution
If you’ve had experience with weekly general chiropractic visits, you may question how affordable upper cervical chiropractic is. However, upper cervical chiropractic is a very different process. Here are a few of the differences:
- Gentle adjustments – No popping or twisting.
- Long-lasting adjustments – Gentle adjustments hold longer, allowing more time between visits.
- Personalized adjustments – Each adjustment is tailored specifically to you, including the frequency of visits.
- As-needed care – Adjustments are only provided when your C1 and C2 are out of alignment.
Because of these principles of care, you may find that you quickly go from needing frequent adjustments to correct a problem to only scheduling occasional appointments to maintain proper alignment. The longer your adjustments hold, the more you can spread those visits out and the less your continued care will cost.
