One of the most common causes of pain in the neck is mechanical pain within the joints of the human spine. Any joint in the spine can be susceptible to a loss in its capacity for motion and a degradation of its resilience, and the muscles and ligaments surrounding a given joint can experience painful sensations because of the imbalance caused by the faulty joint. If a joint that is degenerating because of an inability to move is near the spine’s top, the pain can spread from the neck and shoulders down through the arms.
When applying care, the chiropractor will use a thorough orthopedic and neurological examination in order to reliably form an accurate diagnosis. From there, the doctor will use safe chiropractic manipulation techniques in tandem with specific physical exercises to therapeutically restore the neck joints’ capacity to move in normal everyday directions. In addition to restoring the flexibility of the neck joints in question, our clinic’s chiropractic care will condition the endurance of the surrounding muscles so that they will become strong again.
