It is close to impossible to help a patient with neck pain if your not sure of the location of the problem. At Health 1st Chiropractic and Rehabilitation we use of a variety of diagnostic tools to zero in on the source of the pain. This is the reason for the outstanding patient results that we see.
The spine is one of the most complex areas of your body, with almost every systemic nerve running through it. Muscles connected to a region of the spine that is misaligned can spasm and tighten. This tightening is believed to be a defense mechanism of the body to protect the spine and spinal cord. Bad posture and repetitive motions with a bad posture are the most common cause of misalignments that happen in the spine.
Many people let spinal problems go uncorrected. They hope that if they wait long enough their pain will just go away. In a lot of cases it probably will go away, but the misalignment that caused the problem is still there. Over time that area can become aggravated, and the pain will return. Over time without correction the problem can become much more serious. Some patients get to the point were surgery may be the only option.
Common vs. Normal
If you have neck pain please don’t fall into the common vs. normal trap. The trap insinuates that because so many people have neck pain it must be normal. Neck pain is very common, but it is certainly not normal. This type of reasoning is why we see so many people with problems that can no longer be corrected. You don’t have to become a statistic of neck pain. Take control of the problem before it’s too late.
