Your neck is the most vulnerable part of your spine. Not only does it support your 5kg head, maintain gentle forward curve but it must also allow the free flow of nerve impulses to the head, face and body. Besides discomfort and pain, neck pain indicates that something is wrong.
Many everyday things such as watching TV, using mobile devices, using computers or falling asleep on a chair in a improper position. The temporary pain that may resolve temporarily but may also indicate a more serious underlying issue. The most common cause of neck pain is functional distortions in the spine which manifest as forward head carriage, whiplash and joint instability. The body responds by tightening muscles in the neck ‘splinting’ the joint to protect it from further insult.
Most of the pain – sensing nerves in the neck are located in the pairs of joints behind each vertebra. The smooth, interlocking surfaces allow you to rotate your head and bend your head up and down. If these joints become locked or fixated, neck pain can result. Chiropractic can help restore proper joint motion. A more difficult problem to address is the degenerative changes that result from neglect. Years of uncorrected spinal problems can cause bone spurs, disc thinning and other forms of spinal decay. These types of problems respond more slowly to Chiropractic.
