Chiropractic and Neck Pain
December 7, 2015 By Patrick Keiran, DC
Your neck and shoulders work hard every day. Neck pain is almost a universal human experience. The slightest deviation in the relationship between the bones of the cervical spine can cause pain and limit head and neck mobility. Research shows that chiropractic treatments can relieve neck pain more effectively than any pain medication.
Neck pain can derive from any type of neck strain or neck injury (whiplash), virus infection of the throat (which may lead to lymph gland swelling thus putting strain on the neck), headaches, poor posture, uncomfortable sleeping positions or even physical and emotional stress. Spinal manipulation and/or chiropractic neck adjustments have been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of neck pain, regardless of the cause.
