Athens, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- Family Chiropractic of Athens and Dr. Barry Hitchcock, DC, the best chiropractor in Athens GA, are pleased to announce that chiropractic medicine has a wide variety of safe and effective solutions for pain in the shoulders and neck area. The pain may originate from posture problems, injuries or ergonomic problems at work. The different types of underlying injuries may make a difference in whether the onset of pain is sudden, or builds over time.

Dr. Barry Hitchcock, recognized as the Best Chiropractor in Athens GA, spoke to an interviewer recently, "A misalignment of the spine can create pain in both the neck and the shoulders. When the cervical vertebrae are out of alignment, the discs may protrude into surrounding tissue, causing compression of the nerves and irritation of soft tissue nearby."

He continues, "When the subluxation in the neck affects the nerve roots that lead to the shoulder area, patients can experience constant and debilitating pain in the extremities as well as in the shoulder. Some have described the pain as similar to the sensation of being struck on the "crazy bone" only it is unrelenting. Chiropractors know that such pain is not alleviated with pain killers. Drugs only mask the pain and may have harmful long-term effects on internal organs."

Each patient care plan is unique. It addresses the exact areas where there are problems with alignment or soft tissue. Typically a gentle adjustment technique is used to bring the vertebral column into correct alignment. When the spine is not compressing soft tissue the body is encouraged to bring building blocks of healing nutrients to the cells where there is damage.

The chiropractic techniques are natural and gentle. They often include an adjustment followed by more widespread methods that improve blood circulation. These include massage, physical therapy, electrical stimulation of the muscles, and ultrasound. Longer term therapy can include improved nutrition, posture training and a more active lifestyle.
