Neck pain is caused by nerve interference due to a subluxated bone in the neck, also called the cervical spine. The spine is the primary culprit for neck pain, numbness and tingling in the arms and hands also known as a radiculopathy. Not only does neck pain travel down your arms, but also up wrapping around your head causing debilitating headaches.
People don’t just develop neck pain over night. For most, either a significant trauma occurred in the past or developed neck pain due to repetitive micro traumas. This is a chronic condition that is based on your lifestyle. Chiropractic care is the best intervention to not only remove neck pain, but improve your life. We remove subluxations in the neck that have been there long before developing symptoms. A subluxation is a bone that has lost normal function and fixated in an abnormal position. This puts stress on the nerves that exit the bones of the neck leading to pain and a poor quality of life. If those bones stay subluxated they will degenerate faster and the severity of your neck pain and arm pain will increase. On the other hand, receiving chiropractic care early enough will prevent arthritic changes to progress, eliminating neck pain and all the other associated symptoms that are experienced in the arms and hands as well as the head. This is why it is also crucial to get children checked early so that they may live life at their most optimal ability. We serve Madison CT, Killingworth CT, Clinton CT, Guilford CT, Branford CT and many more surrounding towns.
If you or anyone you may know is suffering from neck pain please contact our office for a detailed evaluation. During your examination we will sit knee to knee to take a detailed history, we will perform orthopedic and neurological exams which means we will be able to pin point the causation of your neck pain. We will also take a detailed set of x-rays with a motion study of the region of complaint, which will tell you how each individual bone moves or does not move, and how we can help you get rid of your neck pain.
