Neck Pain and Chiropractic Care
Do You Experience Neck Pain?
Has neck pain prevented you from doing things you want to do? Has it caused you to miss out on certain activities? Has it caused you to have less energy, interfered with your concentration, or mad you grumpy? Has neck pain stopped you from getting things done or playing with your kids? Do you feel that neck pain is keeping you from being the person you want to be, and living the life you want to live?
Chances are you’ve experienced neck pain at some time in your life. Most people have. Many people think it’s normal, a part of aging—just a part of life. Some people just take a pain killer and keep going. Or, maybe they try to get used to it, or go from treatment to treatment—never resolving their neck pain. Often their neck pain just seems to keep getting worse over time. Unfortunately, too many people have accepted neck pain as something they have to live with, but nothing could be further from the truth!
Neck Pain is a Warning
Pain is a symptom that something is wrong. And neck pain is a body signal that something is wrong in your neck, which can lead to more serious health problems. All the nerves travel from your brain through your neck to all other parts of your body, and this is what controls, coordinates, integrates, and regulates all the functions of your body. Interestingly, over 90% of the time, the nerves in the neck can be irritated and not even cause pain. When you feel pain, you can be pretty sure those nerves are seriously inflamed. If the nerves in your neck are irritated and inflamed, it will cause the strength, energy, and intelligence that flows through those nerves to be diminished, and that will lead to a progressive weakening of the cells, tissues, and organs supplied by those nerves causing damage and eventual health problems.
One of the most common causes of neck pain is pinched and inflamed nerves from individual or whole groups of the spinal bones getting out of alignment, also known as “vertebral subluxations.”
Common Causes of Vertebral Subluxations
- Emotional or mental stress,
- Looking down at cell phones,
- Motor vehicle accidents,
- Sitting at computers,
- Sitting too long,
- Sleeping improperly,
- Standing too long,
- Twists, and more
Chiropractic Care is an Effective Treatment of Neck Pain
The doctors at World Class Chiropractic successfully treat neck pain for our patients on a daily basis. One of the key elements we evaluate in treating neck pain is a patient’s posture. Posture is like a window to the spine, and by evaluating posture we can get a good idea of whether someone’s spine is out of alignment putting dangerous stress on the nerves, which often contributes to other health problems as well.
In our office we use state of the art technology to evaluate the alignment and function of the spine and nervous system. We specialize in advanced techniques to restore the normal alignment and function to the spine thereby allowing the nerves to flow freely which not only feels good but often improves healing, performance, energy, strength, and enhances overall well being. We also empower our practice members with the knowledge and instruction to take care of their spine and nervous system so that you can keep your spine and nervous system functioning properly for a lifetime. You were designed to be healthy. Chiropractic can help you live the life you were meant to live.
