Neck pain is a serious problem that many people deal with on a daily basis. Approximately 45% of American workers are affected by neck pain. A healthy neck is very important because it is home to many important and delicate structures. It is also the most mobile part of the spine which is why it can be so easily injured.

Benefits from care

Chiropractic care for neck pain benefits people structurally and physiologically. Structurally, chiropractic helps with the alignment, mobility, and the range of motion of the neck. Physiologically, pressure that is on the nervous system, the muscles and ligaments of the neck, or the circulatory system is removed once the structural aspect of the problem is resolved. This can result in an improvement in the patient’s overall health.

There are many things that we do every day that affect our neck’s health. We live in the age of technology where most people are sitting for hours and staring at a computer, cellphone, or tablet. This can create a postural syndrome leading to a forward head posture or an “anterior head carriage.” Rene Cailliet, M.D. of the University of Southern California states:

“Head in forward posture can add up to thirty pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine. This can pull the entire spine out of alignment. Forward head posture (FHP) may result in the loss of 30% of vital lung capacity. These breath-related effects are primarily due to the loss of the cervical lordosis, which blocks the action of the hyoid muscles, especially the inferior hyoid responsible for helping lift the first rib during inhalation.”

As you can see, having problems in the neck can lead to problems in the entire spine and even the entire body. Additional problems that can be associated with neck pain are conditions of the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), damage to the muscles and ligaments, disc compression, flattening of the normal neck curve, arthritis, headaches, pinched nerves and blood vessels that can lead to pain, numbness and tingling in the arms.
