Neck pain is extremely common. In fact, it will afflict 2 out of 3 people at some time, meaning it is nearly as common as back pain. Neck pain is difficult to diagnose and care for because this area of the body houses many blood vessels, muscles, and nerves.
One thing that seems to stand out when it comes to finding out why neck pain occurs is uneven weight distribution of the head. The head can weigh up to 14 pounds and is stabilized by the neck. In order for the head to remain balanced properly, bones and muscles must be in the right place and functioning well. If one of the bones of the upper neck becomes misaligned – even by ¼ of a millimeter – the head becomes imbalanced and places extra stress on the neck as it works to correct this problem.
Where to Find Reliable Help for Neck Pain
Here at Synergy Chiropractic in Anchorage, Alaska, we help our patients with neck pain by making sure nothing is out of place in the uppermost bones of the neck. This is done using precise measurements, imagery, and taking a detailed patient history. We then employ a technique called Atlas Orthogonal that is very gentle and precise. It does not require us to pop or crack the spine. Rather it encourages the bones to move back into place naturally, leading to longer lasting results.
Neck pain is not something to ignore and hope it goes away on its own. A misalignment in the upper cervical spine can eventually lead to all kinds of health problems beyond neck pain. Things like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, migraines, and vertigo can all be related to a misalignment of the neck. It is important to come see us for a consultation as soon as possible if neck pain is a daily part of one’s life.
