At Revolution Chiropractic Murfreesboro, we conduct an evaluation using a tool called a rolling thermo, or an inflammation scan. It has two sensors, a few rollers, and some software attached to it.

Basics Of The Rolling Thermo Tool

The rolling thermo gives us a snapshot of the level of stress and tension on your spine and nervous system. It does it by measuring the differences between the amount of inflammation and temperature gradients on the left and right sides. It then identifies the areas of stress or tension along the spine and the nervous system. 

The white areas indicate moderate or very minimal stress. The blue areas are spots with a bit more pain, while there is even more pain in the green areas. 

The areas we look for are the red areas which indicate high levels of stress and tension. It indicates instability or imbalance or stress or tension on the nerves and muscles. 

The rolling thermo looks at the autonomic nervous system that controls and coordinates our body. If our chiropractors for neck pain see imbalances on the left and right, it shows some stress and tension on the spine and the nervous system.

Neck Strain Can Affect Other Body Parts As Well

If you or somebody you know have painful shoulders or exhibit symptoms like headaches, sinus pressure, arm pain issues, numbness, and tingling down into the hands, it could all be because of neck pain or strain.

Can Chiropractors Help With Neck Pain?

Yes. The stretching exercise is part of chiropractic care and works because the entire body is interconnected. Most neck pain sufferers don’t just have neck pain and discomfort. The shoulder, upper and lower back, the upper neck, and even your skull may also be involved.

Consulting a chiropractor treatment for neck pain or any specialist can help provide neck pain relief by treating the root cause of the pain. We evaluate the condition to see what’s going on and develop a customized treatment plan to fix and stabilize your neck and spine.
