Urgent Care Tallahassee: Alternative Drug-free Treatments for Neck Pain

Neck pain can be caused  by a number of things, including:  whiplash from a car accident or sports injury, slip and fall or even a direct hit to the head, poor ergonomics at home or work, and sleeping position or bed (Stomach sleeping).  If left untreated, minor neck injuries often worsen causing severe neck pain, making it hard to sleep or perform daily activities.

"I highly recommend Dr. Pragle & Bryce, the Massage Therapist. Over the past 6 years, I developed severe neck pain and migraines. I've tried everything from lyrica, botox, facet injections, etc. The treatments have helped but have not relieved the pain. Needless to say I was skeptical and did not have any expecatations when I visited Dr. Pragle, but I thougth why not, I've tried everything else. During my first visit I received the AO tx and he adjusted my lower spine. Due to the misalignment of my neck and massive muscle spasms he did not recommend a medical massage because my body needed to heal form the treatment. Between the first and my second visit, my neck pain was reduced by 95% and I did not have any migraines (I tyipcally have 4 a week). During my second visit, my atlas remained in-line and he treated my lower spine. I added a 60 minute medical massage to help work out years of knots in my muscles from the neck pain. This is now my second day after my second tx and I do not have pain! Bryce is great, and the massage was truly awesome. He was able to work out so many knots that i would actually feel relieved when they decided to give up :) It was such a new feeling that I cannot stop talking about it :) I continue to wake up each day amazed that I am not in pain - it's hard to believe, as I keep waiting for the pain to come back - so far so good :) I am a true believer in the AO tx, Dr. Pragle's style of alighment, and medical massage. I truly wish I would have known about this 6 years ago. If you are on the fence, make an appointment and talk with Dr. Pragle - he is a true practioner and will advise you for what is best for you :)"
