Neck Pain

Imagine balancing a 12 lb. (5.5 kg.) bowling ball on the tips of your fingers.

Your neck is one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine. Problems here can cause problems throughout your body.

All day long.

That’s just one of many things your neck must do. Your neck and shoulders work hard. Deviations in the relationship of the seven bones of your cervical spine (neck) can cause pain and reduced head and neck mobility.

Mountain or Molehill

Many people have episodes of neck pain that are not caused by a single trauma.  Neck problems may also involve sensations of discomfort, stiffness or soreness that extend into the shoulders.  We will not make a mountain out of a molehill and we will do our best to alleviate your episode of pain as quickly as possible.  For cases of whiplash or other more significant neck injuries, healing may take longer.

Response to Stress

Physical, emotional or chemical stress can affect the frequency and severity of neck pain. For many of us, the neck and shoulders are the “weakest link in the chain” and so stress shows up here.

Often, emotional stress is the overlooked culprit. Ever hear of something being a “pain in the neck”? Fear, anger or frustration can trigger the tightening of our neck muscles without our even being conscious. In time, chronic muscle tightness sets in. This can lead to headaches.

Some over-the-counter pain relievers might dull the pain, but this ignores the underlying cause!
