Chiropractic for Neck Pain
Visualize balancing a 12 pound bowling ball on the tips of your fingers. This is what your neck was made for.
Your neck is one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine. Problems in the neck can cause problems throughout your body.
The Hard worker.
Supporting your head is one of the many things your neck does. Your neck and your shoulders work hard so even the smallest deviation in one of the seven bones of your cervical spine (neck) can cause pain and reduced head and neck mobility.
Minor and Major Neck Pain
Typically we see two causes of neck pain. Minor neck and shoulder pain are associated with discomfort, stiffness, or soreness. If these symptoms last for more than a couple of days, if they occur frequently, or if they were caused by an accident or injury then we consider it major neck pain.
Stress and Effects on the NEck
Physical, chemical, or emotional stress directly affects the severity of neck pain. For many of us, the neck and shoulders are the "weakest link in the chain" and so stress commonly shows up here.
Emotional stress is the most commonly overlooked cause. Have you ever called someone a pain in the neck? Fear anger or frustration can actually trigger a tightening of your neck muscles without you ever being aware of it. Over time, chronic muscle spasms will set in, which can lead to headaches. Safe and natural chiropractic care may help.
