Suppose you are suffering from neck pain, and you are looking for relief. In that case, Dr. Anthony Di Liberto of Di Liberto Chiropractic Family & Sports Center in Jersey City, NJ has been treating patients for more than 20 years and offers a variety of therapies that can help.
Neck pain can have many causes and the first thing that Dr. Di Liberto will do is examine you to determine the root cause of your pain. A chiropractor doesn't just treat the pain, they treat the cause of the pain. Getting to the root cause helps to have lasting pain relief. A personalized treatment plan will then be developed and recommendations made for therapies to treat your neck pain.
The Diversified Technique is the most well-known chiropractic technique. This technique is taught at most chiropractic schools and when people think of chiropractic adjustments, it is the technique they recognize. It uses high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts to move the vertebrae. This technique causes a popping noise when vertebrae are moved.
Manual decompression therapy
Manual decompression therapy uses a hands-on technique, as well as the latest in computer programming to flex and stretch the spine. The gentle stretching and relaxing have the effect of creating space between the vertebrae to allow a herniated disc to be pulled back into its place between the vertebrae. It can take a few weeks to get the disc to move back off the nerve, but when it does, the pain is relieved.
K-laser is cold laser therapy. It uses a different wavelength of light than the hot laser which is used to cut. Cold laser therapy sends light deep into the tissues to promote healing and relieve pain. It can help with inflammation and helps to improve blood flow from the new capillaries that form.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to help accelerate the healing process and to improve circulation. Neck pain responds well to ultrasound therapy and can be a part of the personalized treatment plan that Dr. Di Liberto creates for each individual patient.
Manual trigger point therapy
Trigger points are painful knots in the muscles. They are sore to the touch, but the pain may not be localized to the trigger point; it can radiate from there. They can result from a neck injury or from poor posture. Releasing them is a targeted form of deep massage.
