Neck Pain

Reducing symptoms - correcting the cause.


A popular response to neck pain is taking drugs to
cover up the problem (aspirin, analgesics, pain pills)
or treating its symptoms (muscle relaxers, massage,
hot packs).

But neck pain isn’t caused by a lack of aspirin or drugs!

The chiropractic approach to neck pain is to locate its underlying cause. This begins with
a complete case history and thorough examination. Special attention is given to the
structure and function of the spine, and its affect on the nervous system.

Is the proper spinal curve present? Are the nerve openings between each pair of spinal
bones free and clear? Is the head balanced? Are the shoulders level? These and other
considerations are used to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to help
improve the motion and position of spinal vertebrae.

With improved structure and function, neck pain often diminishes or totally disappears—
without addictive drugs or harmful side effects!

One study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
found that patients who received chiropractic care reported significant improvement in
their neck function and a reduction in their neck pain wheras those taking pain-killers
did not.


A common health complaint.


Is it hard to look over your shoulder? Is there a constant pulling or throbbing pain in
your neck? Do you notice a “grinding” sound as you turn your head? Contact a Doctor of
Chiropractic for a thorough history and examination.


THE  CHIROPRACTIC  LIFESTYLE


Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective
tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of
this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good
health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that
may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice
or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current
condition and lifestyle.
