Do you suffer from nagging neck pain or a popping or clicking that won’t stop? Modern science and research is showing that a problem with your neck may have much bigger implications.
Modern technology has opened a window to look into many aspects of the human body we could not explore previously. Here are some of the recent breakthroughs regarding neck pain:1-3
- Misalignment (subluxation) of the bones in the neck particularly at the C1 vertebra (Atlas) can cause abnormal blood flow
- Subluxation affects the Central Nervous System, specifically the brain decreasing neurological function
- This may cause the brain to fell pain more than what is actually happening in the body
Chronic Neck pain may only be perceived as something happening locally but having many other seeming unrelated effects throughout the entire body. That catch your neck that just won’t go away may actually be an indication of other conditions.
Chronic Neck Pain Specialist Dr Dan Spinato helps patients in San Diego to get natural relief. As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor specializing in the spine and the integrity of the nervous system, using advanced methods and procedures to locate the exact cause and subluxation of chronic neck pain. When the subluxation is located and measured a custom adjustment is given to each patient. The adjustment is given only when needed without any popping, twisting, or cracking of the neck.
Once the proper alignment of the spine is attained the body will be able to function normally and begin the healing process.4 References: 1. Damadian RV, Chu D.
