Neck, Shoulder & Upper Back Pain


Neck, Shoulder & Upper Back Pain

The Cervical Curve – Structure, Function and Optimal Health

 

neck-pain-forest-lakeThe neck of the human body is a bio-mechanical marvel. It possesses a wide range of mobility in nearly every direction. The neck serves as a conduit for the major blood vessels to the brain and is the primary pathway of the central nervous
system. The cervical (neck) region is one of the most important areas of the body and a growing body of research clearly shows that its structural integrity and function are absolutely critical to overall health and healing.

The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system. The spinal cord is often thought of as just a cable that transmits nerve messages, but it is actually a direct part of the brain. The spinal cord plays a crucial role in the health and homeostasis of the human body by sending and receiving billions of nerve messages every single second.

The Central Nervous System is so vital to overall health and functioning of the human body that it is protected by the hardest substance in the body, a series of vertebral bones that makeup the spinal
column.

Neck Pain

Stress is a leading cause of neck pain. But the most common cause of acute neck pain is whiplash, and if left untreated can lead into chronic neck pain. Chronic neck pain usually occurs due to untreated injuries and poor posture (ex. Sitting at a desk working on a computer).

Shoulder Pain

Dysfunction of the cervical spine leads to stressed muscles not only in the neck, but also the entire shoulder girdle. Nerves may become trapped, the muscles then do not function properly and symptoms may occur.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
