I had pain in the neck coming down to my shoulder and my right arm and hand, because I have a herniated disc in my neck. The pain was unbearable and I had torticollis with severe muscle spasm. I did not know what to do as I couldn´t not sleep at all. I've been coming almost a month and now I feel no pain at all. Moreover, I like sports but couldn´t do any because of a sharp pain in my left knee. That pain is also gone and most importantly I can now sleep!
My experience has been very positive in all aspects, both the doctors and the assistants who attend. They are all very nice and very friendly.
I have recommended chiropractic treatment to all my friends.
Torticollis is a form of muscle spasm in which the neck muscles contract involuntarily causing them to tilt your head.
Since this condition is usually acquired by bad posture, it is recommended to take special care in situations that may arise, such as using pillows too high or low at bedtime, not spending too much time on the phone in an awkward posture and avoid sudden neck movements. Relaxation techniques and regular stretching of the cervical area reduces the risk of getting it but if it occurs chiropractic treatment is by far the best option.
