Neck Pain

neck painCommonly seen in the office, neck pain can be caused by texting, a sports injury, or doing chores. If the bones of the spine are out of alignment, it causes the muscles to grab on to hold the head on straight.

Getting to the Root Cause

If the top two bones are out of alignment then what that does is create compensations the rest of the way down the spine. That’s how the rest of the body gets itself into trouble by compensating when the head’s not on straight; the rest of the body is trying to manage that and keep itself level with the horizon. That’s what brings the shoulders up and causes the hips to come out of place. If you don’t fix that root cause of the problem those other issues the rest of the way down the spine are going to tend to continue to surface.

Upper cervical is about getting to the root cause of the problem. If the head is on straight the rest of the body will be able to release those compensations and be able to unwind and align itself on its own due to something called the righting reflex.
