The most common causes of neck pain are irritation to the nerve roots that exit between the vertebrae in the neck, as well as muscle, and ligament strains and sprains.Other culprits are the soreness and stiffness resulting from injuries, poor posture, deteriorating posture and weak postural muscles. Another major cause of moderate to severe neck pain are bulging and herniated discs pressing on the nerve roots or spinal cord. Conventional treatments for neck pain run the gamut from mild to strong pain killers, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medications, …to soft and hard restrictive collars, traction, heat or cold packs, to surgery. None of these do anything to permanently restore the normal spinal biomechanics of the neck, nor to lessen or eliminate pressure on the discs, ligaments, nerves and muscles of the neck. Once all the biomechanical measurements are analyzed, we can then begin to teach each patient what they individually should do to restore the normal relationship of the bones, discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments in their own neck. Patients with bulging or herniated discs or postural muscles that are particularly resistant to change tend to respond very well wiht the spine and disc protocol that we offer. Classical chiropractic care often does a great job of providing symptom relief or elimination, while we look to teach you what to do to make the deeper correction of the underlying cause.
