Neck pain is an all too common occurrence caused by factors such as poor posture, muscle strain, or injuries. Neck pain affects persons from all walks of life, whether resulting from years hunched over a desk or an acute on the job physical injury. Unfortunately, traditional medicine has relied heavily on the prescription opioids in treating neck pain. Hands for Life was established at the recognition of the fact that opiate overprescription and addiction, for common and resolvable conditions like neck pain, has torn apart and ended the lives of millions of Americans. 

Opiate addiction very often results from a person’s sincere attempt to manage their chronic pain, like neck pain, through traditional medical routes and opioid medications. However, it’s well-known now that these medications can be and often are highly addictive, leading to dependence, withdrawal, life disruptions, even death. The worst part is that all the while the source of your neck pain, the mechanical injury itself, remains unresolved. Chiropractic care can offer a solution to neck pain that does not put the patient at risk of opiate addiction. 

Chiropractic care treats neck pain through manual adjustments and manipulations of the spine. These realign the spine, alleviate pressure on nerves in the neck, and improve the function of the musculoskeletal system. By resolving the underlying musculoskeletal issues that cause neck pain, chiropractic care can reduce the need for opiate medications and support our community and country at large in overcoming addiction. Our holistic approach to care addresses the whole person. Our non-profit mission sees the person, their pain and needs, not the contents of their wallet or the limits of their insurance plan.
