Our entire head is supported by seven small vertebrae, known as the cervical spine, or in common layman terms, the neck. Our neck is basically what allows us to carry our heady and move it around from side-to-side and, up and down, and it is because our neck is supporting such a heavy weight and doing so much activity with it that it becomes susceptible to developing neck pains and problems.
A lot of us happen to suffer from neck pains, and it grows into a bigger problem as we tend to grow older, and there are a number of factors that can contribute to neck pain like a muscle problem, our cervical vertebrae growing weaker, a sudden impact like an accident or any trauma and so on can all become possible causes behind neck pain. Even poor posture and not keeping our neck at a proper position can lead to neck problems as well, and this can be really difficult to deal with. Then there is the fact that medicine only works to relieve the pain and not exactly fix the problem.
This is where chiropractic treatment, a treatment measure that focuses entirely on our musculoskeletal system comes in. Cervical manipulation or neck adjustments is a procedure that is applied on the joints and areas of the vertebrae. The purpose of this treatment plan is to help deal with neck related problems, increase mobility, and reduce neck pain. Dr. Jeremy is a licensed practitioner that has years of experience working with neck pain and can help relieve you of your pain or at least reduce the intensity of it. Depending on the cause of your pain and other factors surrounding your case, your chiropractor will devise a treatment plan especially for you and then go about treating you accordingly.
