Chiropractic Tips For Neck Pain

In all reality, most neck pain felt on a daily basis is due to poor posture, muscular imbalances, or cervical vertebrae that have moved slightly out of place. The neck is generally considered by chiropractors to be the most important section of the body to be adjusted. The reason for this is that all of the nerves running to the rest of the body start in the cervical spine.

If there is inflammation and irritation to the nerves around the first cervical vertebrae then almost every nerve running below that joint could be improperly functioning.

*Neck pain can be a dull ache or a little more sever with a throbbing. Pain may radiate up to the base of the skull or down an arm, in some cases all the way into the fingers.

Try to take multiple breaks throughout the day to stretch your neck and arms. Stay away from hunching forward and looking down for long periods of time. Poor posture can cause neck pain, so we recommend getting regular chiropractic adjustments to get neck pain relief.

Try to limit the amount of cell phone usage. As a culture we have started using cell phone technology more, and in most cases is a part of our every day lives. The more time you spend looking down at your phone texting and surfing the web, the more stress you put on your neck.

Think about holding a bowling ball in your hand. Its a lot easier to hold it closer to your chest than it is to extend your arm all the way out. The same idea applies to your head and cervical muscles, the further you look down and move your head forward the harder your neck muscles have to work.
