Neck pain is
no fun. It can be a real pain in the neck! Whether it's something you woke up
with this morning after an uncomfortable night's sleep, something that developed
after a car accident, or maybe just a sudden sharp pain while turning your head,
neck pain can affect every aspect of our daily life. For some, a misalignment
in the joints of the neck can lead to chronic and debilitating headaches. For
others a nerve may become compressed or entrapped as it leaves the spine on its
way down the arm, taking with it severe pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness
in that arm. Regardless of the many causes of neck pain, there are few
effective treatments available that can address the root cause of the neck pain
at its source. Chiropractic treatment has shown itself to be very effective,
very safe, and without the risks and side effects associated with other forms of
treatment for this area. In fact, a study published in 2002 in the medical
journal Annals of Internal Medicine concluded that chiropractic care of
neck pain resulted in faster recovery, gave better treatment effect, and cost
significantly less than either physiotherapy or care by a general practitioner.
