Neck pain can be difficult to cope with. Some experience a cracking or popping of the neck that goes along with the pain. Chronic neck pain is pain that is there on a consistent basis, never letting up. This type of pain actually affects other areas of the body. What do we know about neck pain?
By using modern technology, one can take an in-depth look at the body more so than ever before. One thing that has been seen is that neck pain may be connected to a misalignment of the top bone of the neck – the C1 or atlas. This type of misalignment can cause the signals being sent to and from the brain and body to become distorted and may negatively affect the nervous system. This can lead to neurological dysfunction. Therefore, chronic neck pain may indicate a problem in other areas of the body and should never be ignored.
How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Can Help Chronic Neck Pain
If one is having issues with neck pain, a good place to begin is seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. We have been specially trained to find upper neck misalignments – even those as small as ¼ of a millimeter. Once the problem has been discovered, we put a plan of care into place.
The adjustments here at Synergy Chiropractic do not involve popping or cracking the spine to force the bones into place. Rather, we use a gentle method that helps the bones move back into place naturally and allows the healing processes in the body to take over. Adjustments are only given when necessary.
Once the bones move back into place, proper communication can be restored between the brain and body. A person may feel healthier overall and will often see neck pain improve or even go away.
