Cervical Spine Subluxations and Neck Pain

What does neck pain have to do with Chiropractic Care?

Neck pain is an extremely common problem, with an estimated two-thirds of the population experiencing it at some point in their lives. While there can be many causes, spinal subluxations in the cervical vertebrae are underlying cause. Thankfully, chiropractic care and adjustments of the upper spine can help realign the cervical vertebrae, reduce nerve interference, and relieve associated neck pain and symptoms.

What Are Cervical Subluxations?

Cervical subluxations occur when one or more of the seven vertebrae in your neck become misaligned, putting pressure on nerves and irritating surrounding muscles and soft tissues. This spinal instability leads to inflammation, pain, and neurological symptoms. Chiropractors focus on detecting and correcting these vertebral misalignments before they can cause further damage.

Symptoms of cervical subluxations often include:

  • Neck stiffness or decreased range of motion
  • Sharp neck pain or achiness
  • Headaches that start at the base of the skull
  • Pain or numbness radiating down the arms and shoulders
  • Dizziness or balance issues

How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help

Chiropractors are experts in spine health and use specialized techniques to locate and correct cervical subluxations. Gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments are applied to realign individual vertebrae, take pressure off nerves, and restore normal joint mobility.

By addressing subluxations, chiropractic care reduces irritation to the nervous system. This can provide widespread benefits beyond just the neck area, as proper nerve communication supports overall health and function.

This case was a perfect example

Just like with this patient, who first came to our office suffering from headaches, lack of range of motion, stiffness, radiating pain, and vertigo, patients often report improved range of motion, decreased muscle tension, relief from headaches, and reduced neck pain after regular chiropractic adjustments. All of her SYMPTOMS relieved with correction to the structure.

Your neurologist doesn’t understand subluxations

Neurologists and other medical providers don’t specialize on the way that the spine affects the nerve system. Small but significant misalignments in the vertebrae of the neck are often an overlooked source of pain and dysfunction. With specialized chiropractic adjustments, you can realign your cervical spine, achieve lasting pain relief, and improve nervous system function holistically.

One response to “Cervical Spine Subluxations and Neck Pain”

  1. […] Subluxations that form after an auto accident are some of the most destructive because they were formed under trauma. That trauma has affected more than just the bones. That trauma has created weakness. That is why chiropractic is best for auto accidents. Chiropractic will correct the subluxations, and help the body heal the weakness. That healing restores alignment and motion. We see principled chiropractic care improving quality of life because the spine is able to return to a more normal position. Like having an alignment done on your car. […]
