Neck and Upper Back Pain
Neck and upper back pain is a common problem affecting about two-thirds of
the population at some point in their lives. Neck and upper back pain can be
caused by numerous spinal problems including muscular tightness in both the neck
and upper back, pinching nerves emanating from the cervical or thoracic region
and joint disruption due to vertebral misalignment. These symptoms can arise
from lack of strength, poor posture, bad sleeping positions, overuse injuries
(such as repetitive motion), or a trauma (such as a car accident or sports
Chiropractic adjustments will realign involved vertebrae within the neck and
upper back. Vertebral realignment reduces tension on muscle tendons and
ligaments and relieves nerve pressure due to inflammation.
Along with chiropractic adjustments your doctor will provide you with postural
recommendations, better sleeping positions and stretching and strengthening
exercises as well as ergonomical advice to reduce and even eliminate these
injuries in the future.
