Dr. Hunziker uses the following methods to determine the appropriate treatment for your neck pain?
Dr. Hunziker uses the Cox Flexion Distraction Technique (also known as the Cox Technic), a non-surgical manipulation of your neck, to relieve cervical pain. This procedure is a gentle adjustment that helps your spine heal on its own. During the procedure, Dr. Hunziker uses a proprietary chiropractic table that stretches the spine in a rhythmic movement. It helps calm and decrease bulges and herniations in your spinal discs by taking the pressure off of the injured nerve.
Simple neck exercises that Dr. Hunziker fully explains can bring long-lasting relief. He prescribes physiotherapy for more severe or chronic pain as well as extended chiropractic treatment.
