A neck adjustment (also known as cervical manipulation) is a precise procedure where pressure is applied to the joints of the neck, usually by hand. A neck adjustment works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion. Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head as well as a reduction of pain, soreness and stiffness.

We will develop a program of care that may combine more than one type of treatment depending on your personal needs. In addition to manipulation, the treatment plan may also include mobilization, massage or rehabilitative exercises. 

In some instances, additional testing might be necessary to help diagnose your condition. An x-ray can show narrowed disc space, fractures, bone spurs or arthritis. A computerized axial tomography scan (a CT or CAT scan) or a magnetic resonance imaging test (an MRI) can show bulging discs and herniations. If nerve damage is suspected, your doctor may order a special test called electromyography (an EMG) to measure how quickly your nerves respond.

Here at Body of Beverly Hills Wellness, we are a conservative care practice and do not include the use of drugs or surgery in our treatments. If you have been diagnosed with a condition outside of this conservative scope such as a neck fracture or an indication of an organic disease, you will be referred to an appropriate medical physician or specialist to continue your treatment. You may also need to give your permission for us to inform your family physician of the care you are receiving to ensure that your chiropractic care and medical care are coordinated properly.
