Your neck supports 10 to 13 pounds!
Neck pain is a common health complaint. A popular response to neck pain is taking drugs to cover up the problem (aspirin, analgesics, pain pills) or treating its symptoms (muscle relaxers, massage, hot packs). But neck pain isn’t caused by a lack of aspirin or drugs!
Treat the symptoms or the cause?
The chiropractic approach to neck pain is to locate its underlying cause. This begins with a complete case history and thorough examination. Special attention is gen to the structure and function of the spine, and its effect on the nervous system.
Many clients with neck pain have lost the normal curve in the neck. This can affect the brain stem and spinal cord.
Is the proper spinal curve present? Are the nerve openings between each pair of spinal bones free and clear? Is the head balanced? Are the shoulders level? These and other considerations are used to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve the motion and position of spinal vertebrae.
Your chiropractic doctor is an expert at using specific chiropractic adjustments to help restore spinal function.
With improved structure and function, neck pain often diminishes or totally disappears – without addictive drugs or harmful side effects!
