What should I do about my neck pain?
As with any condition, the first and most important step in treatment is the evaluation process. At Premier Sports and Spine Center our sports chiropractic physicians will take the time to fully evaluate your condition to determine the cause of your pain. After an examination, our chiropractors will explain what is causing the pain and educate you on which of our many treatment options we recommend to give you the fastest and most permanent relief.
Neck Pain Treatment
The treatment therapies utilized at both the Eden Prairie and Eagan clinics extend well beyond traditional chiropractic. The traditional chiropractic adjustment has been shown to provide pain relief for certain types of pain but becomes dramatically more effective when it is used in combination with other techniques. At Premier Sports and Spine Center patients receive an individualized combination of techniques such as soft tissue myofascial release, cross-friction massage, dry needling, Kinesio tape, and rehabilitation exercises. This gives our patients the best chance of becoming pain-free as quickly as possible and staying that way.
