Neck Pain
Neck PainWith many people tethered to their technological devices it is no wonder that neck pain is one of the top doctor office complaints.

You may stay in one position for a major portion of the day working at a computer, therefore the muscles can ’lock’ into position.

After weeks or even years of this repetitive syndrome inevitably, one day, turning in the opposite direction in a fast rapid movement can start your pain.

Neck pain can also be attributed to:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Spondylosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Infection such as osteomyletis or an abscess
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal called spinal stenosis
  • A ruptured disk
  • Spinal cancer (this is rare)

At IMS a specific protocol will be implemented to hone in on your particular cause and treatment. Using a combination of acupuncture and nutra, many neck afflictions can be successfully alleviated without prescription drugs or surgery.

Acupuncture:
By inserting ultra thin needles that rarely cause any discomfort, licensed acupuncturist Dr. Lisanti will attempt to open up the trapped energy that is impeding your neck’s range of motion. Other locations may also be manipulated such as your ears, hands, feet, head and torso. These acupuncture treatments are usually performed in under an hour and can sometimes include some minor, painless, electrical charges attached to the needles to enhance energy flow. The entire experience can actually be a relaxing session with some people reporting immediate, positive results.

Nutraceutical Supplementation:
Inflammation is one of the major obstacles when it comes to neck pain. If something structural or nerve related develops the muscles will immediately seize up. This beginning cycle can exacerbate into radiating pain down the arms and into the hands. IMS works with nutraceutical supplementation which is the implementation of detailed vitamins, minerals and other unique formulas that can target the affected area to begin healing. Combining this treatment with acupuncture is how Dr. Lisanti can manage your pain while re-adjusting your bodily energy channels to heal from within. The system embraces these approaches, as it would any natural encouragement, relieving symptoms of arthritis, degeneration and muscle challenges that can lead to stubborn neck issues.
