A “Pain In The Neck” May Not Be What You Think

Share This Post

Imagine you are carrying a bowling ball. But instead of carrying it closely at your side you hold it just a few inches away from your body. You would get tired rather quickly, right? It is the same

with your head. If it’s just a little bit off center, you will start to suffer from fatigue as well as stress and pain involving your neck, shoulders, lower back, discs, hips, arms, knees and feet.

All your cervical vertebrae work together to balance your head and protect your spinal cord which is an extension of your brain. In between these vertebrae lie spinal nerves extending from the spinal cord. These nerves can become inflamed, compressed or “pinched” if your structural system is slightly distorted or having a misaligned vertebrae called a subluxation.

There are many ways we can get a subluxation: a difficult birth, a fall, an accident, working in one position for a prolonged period of time, emotional tension and more. Whiplash injury is a common cause of neck subluxations. Whiplash and neck injury sufferers may complain of headaches, vision problems, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and even radicular symptoms such as numbness and tingling into the arms and hands.

Chiropractic care corrects the subluxation aspect of these conditions. It restores proper movement to your structural system and permitting greater energy throughout the body. When the vertebrae are adjusted, your body begins to rebalance. Are you having a pain in the neck? Call to schedule your appointment today at Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic at (321) 636-5200.
