Your neck is the most vulnerable part of your spine. Not only does it support your 10 to 12 pound head, it must allow the free flow of nerve impulses to the hands, face, the rest of your body and back to your head. Many every day activities can cause neck pain and discomfort. One common reason for the pain is poor posture resulting in a decreased or reversal of the normal cervical curve. For every one inch forward of your neck, there is an added 10 pounds of pressure on the spinal discs and nerves. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore the position and motion of the spinal bones of your neck. This alleviates the pain and increases function.
