Our necks are a delicate, hard-working part of the body. It connects the body to the head, which makes it very prone to strains and damage. The neck contains seven vertebral bones, which all lead into the cervical spine and support your head, which weighs 10 pounds on average. Neck bones get support from a system of muscles, nerves, and tendons, and the bones are separated by vertebral discs, which extend into the upper back and spine. Neck pain is also a fairly common problem, with roughly two-thirds of the population dealing with it at some point.
For neck pain, chiropractors use neck adjustments, called cervical manipulation. It is a precise technique applied to the joints of the neck and improves the mobility of the spine and reestablish range of motion. It also increases the movement of the adjoining muscles. Our patients have reported an improvement in their ability to turn and tilt the head. They also see a reducation of pain, soreness, and stiffness.
