Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back
Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back is positioned to function as a “primary spine care” clinic working with all forms of musculoskeletal spine pain and injury, excluding serious pathology such as cancer, fracture and infections. New patients receive a comprehensive history and thorough evaluation of their area of complaint. If clinically necessary, imaging such as x-ray and or MRI will be ordered to reach an accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. Some spine conditions require a team approach and at Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back we will co-manage with appropriate medical specialists in the fields of neurology, pain management, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and other related fields.
A chiropractic evaluation is one of the best initial steps for a neck or back problem rather than going directly to a specialist. Patients can have a rapid diagnosis and early conservative treatment often without the needs of drugs, surgery or injections.
The current scientific literature verifies that chiropractic, when utilized as the first provider significantly reduces disability in the workplace, overall pain, prevents recurring injuries and improves function in almost every aspect of life. The scientific literature reports that when chiropractic is considered as a first option for spine care, the need and use of opiates decreases.
Nearly all causes of spine pain including whiplash, facet joint pain, disc herniation and degeneration have a mechanical component to the pain. “Mechanical spine pain” is the general term that refers to any type of neck or back pain coming from disorders of the moving parts of the spinal column. These moving parts include the ligaments, tendons, muscles, intervertebral discs, spinal facets joints and the bones. Mechanical spine pain is responsible for over 80-90% of all cases of neck and back pain, with around 10% of the neck and back pain coming from serious pathology. Mechanical spine disorders can also cause radiating pain felt as headaches, arm pain and leg pain. At our clinic, we focus on the diagnosis and management of mechanical spine pain.
Common conditions that we diagnose and offer treatment for include:
- Injuries to the neck and back (whiplash & work related)
- Headaches (neck related, tension type, migraines)
