As human beings, there are a lot of experiences we all share. Some of them are good, like feeling rested after a good night’s sleep, or a cool breeze blowing on your face during a pleasant morning. Other experiences, such as neck pain, aren’t so good.

Here’s where it can become a problem. If there’s the slightest deviation in the relationship between the bones of the cervical spine, a person can feel pain, and head and neck mobility can become extremely limited. But why does it happen in the first place?

First, neck strain or whiplash can cause tension between the bones of the cervical spine. Also, if you catch a viral infection of the throat, your lymph nodes can swell, which puts strain upon your neck. Poor posture can create problems, and if you’ve ever slept in a weird position overnight, you know all about the ache you felt the following morning. Neck pain can even be psychosomatic. If you’re under physical or emotional stress, your body can subconsciously create neck pain.

The good news is, neck pain is very treatable. Chiropractic neck adjustments and spinal manipulation have been proven to be a safe and natural treatment method.
