Cedar Rapids Neck Pain Doctor Provides Complete Neck Pain Care

Finding relief from chronic neck pain can be difficult.  Stats show upwards of 20-40% of Americans will struggle with neck pain at some point in their life.  Fortunately, a Cedar Rapids neck pain doctor is providing permanent neck pain relief to those who have suffered months and years and failed multiple providers or therapies!

“20-40% of Americans will struggle with neck pain at some point in their life.”

A healthy neck requires two things; full range of motion and enough strength that is required to perform our daily activities.  Having those two things ensures a healthy neck.

Each year, we spend over 90 billion dollars a year on neck and back pain.  That number is on the rise.  While we continue to spend more on neck pain, more people continue to suffer from daily pain.  What we are doing isn’t working.

The reason? Most doctors are ill-equipped and lack the knowledge required to measure and manage the problem.  For some, this may be an offensive statement.  It’s a hard truth.

“over 90 billion dollars will be spent on neck and back pain this year… and more people will continue to suffer from neck pain”

Think about this.  If you go to a chiropractor, what happens?  You are told you have a misalignment and get adjusted.  If you take the same problem to a physical therapist, what happens?  You get a pamphlet of stretches and exercises.  Trying the same thing with a medical doctor, you will get prescribed muscle relaxers, pain killers, even cortisone injections.

These providers are just doing what they are trained to do.  They are carpenters with a hammer looking for a nail.  Where most providers fail is working to provide an accurate diagnosis – finding out what’s wrong and what needs to be done to fix the problem.

At Thrive Care, this is where we are different.  Our process demands a lot of work upfront to determine as accurate a diagnosis as possible.  We help a lot of patients find relief from chronic neck pain.  In some cases the patients problem isn’t for us – but we know who does – and make the appropriate referral.

In some cases their problem isn’t for us – but we know who can help them!

Most patients coming into our office have struggled with pain months and years and failed multiple provides and therapies before finding relief in our office.  

Adhesion is one of the most common problems in the human body.  It is also one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions.  Most doctors don’t know it exists let alone how to fix it.  Adhesion, when present, acts like glue on muscles.  It limits flexibility, causes weakness and pain, and speeds up degeneration.  We fix it, providing permanent restoration of motion and reduction in pain.  The video above shows what some of our care looks like.

At Thrive Care, we work diligently with our patients to find permanent pain relief!

Patients deserve better care than what they have come to expect — and that is what we deliver in our office! Our Cedar Rapids neck pain doctor and staff provide a patient-centered experience in a results-driven environment to ensure you get honest and effective treatment for your pain problems.

If you or someone you know is struggling with neck pain, we want to see you at Thrive Care!  Getting you to do the things you used to do, and doing them better is our mission!

    Cedar Rapids Neck Pain Assessment

    We are here to help Cedar Rapids neck pain sufferers.

    “The most common reason for NECK PAIN is limited range of motion.”

    Limited range of motion for the neck is like high blood pressure to the heart. Limited range puts more stress on muscles, ligaments, joints, cartilage, discs….everything! Have full range of motion is vital to get rid of neck and should be the cornerstone returning your neck to health.

    How do you know if you have limited range?

    Try our simple at-home test to see if you pass or not.

    The 3 most common reasons for this test being limited are:

    1. Adhesion. Adhesion is without a doubt the most common, most misunderstood, underdiagnosed, and mistreated reason for neck pain that relatively few providers are able to diagnose and treat. When present, it limits range, causes weakness and pain, and speeds up degeneration. It is a BIG deal! This is something we specialize in fixing at our office.
    2. Disc Degeneration. Disc injuries come second on the list. They are also extremely common, yet underdiagnosed. Most providers do not think you are able to diagnose this issue without an MRI. It is not true.
    3. Arthritis. Bony degeneration is the most common diagnosis of the three listed here. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. This is a process that happens when we age. When enough accumulates, it can limit the range of motion and cause pain.

    Of the three pathologies listed, adhesion is the only one that can be “fixed.” Treating adhesion, when present with arthritis or disc degeneration, can help to reduce pain caused from these problems and slow degeneration.

    Adhesion is without a doubt the most common, most misunderstood, underdiagnosed, and mistreated reason for neck pain that relatively few providers are able to diagnose and treat.

    So how did your neck stack up?

    Did you pass the test, or fail? Do you have neck pain?

    If you have neck pain, failed this test, and had your problem for months or years and failed multiple providers or therapies, adhesion is most likely to blame.

    We are experts at finding and fixing adhesion.
