NORWALK - This week, News 12 Connecticut's What's Ailing You looks to a chiropractor for advice on how to alleviate stiffness and pain in the neck and back.

Greenwich-based chiropractor Amy O'Donnell first evaluates a patient's problem area, checking on range of motion.

Then, in the case of knots in the shoulder area, O'Donnell uses a metal tool to apply steady pressure to break up scar tissue and stretch connective tissue.

Depending on the case, she says she may also use a laser that is designed to boost cell repair and alleviate inflammation and pain.

As far as finding a chiropractor in the first place, O'Donnell advises people to check their insurance lists to find a provider and look at the Connecticut Chiropractic Association website.
