In the United States, about 50 million adults deal with the discomfort and impaired mobility of moderate to severe chronic neck pain. Your thin, sensitive cervical spine — the part of your spine that’s in your neck — must hold up and move your 9-12 pound head.
Your head becomes several times heavier when you hold it at an angle, such as while texting or reading. Stresses on your cervical spine, soft-tissue injuries, and incomplete healing may all contribute to your neck pain.
According to the American Headache Society almost 21% of women and 9% of men suffer from severe headaches and migraines. While headaches can be caused by a variety of factors, including medications and heredity, many headaches originate in the shoulders or back because of tense muscles or spinal misalignments.
Although humans evolved to walk upright, the stress on our spine makes back pain almost inevitable. Subluxations (misalignments) in the vertebral bones; pinched nerves; strained or sprained muscles, tendons, and ligaments; and slipped vertebral discs are common sources of back pain.
The National Institutes of Health reports that lower back pain is one of the most common reasons that women and men take time off from work. Lifting heavy objects with your back instead of your legs, subluxations, and soft-tissue injuries all contribute to lower back pain. Improper lifting and long-term standing or sitting can also cause pain in your mid-back.
Most pain in your head, neck, and back is the sole or partial result of subluxations. Subluxations not only change the balance of your body but also impede the flow of nourishing and detoxifying liquids such as blood and lymph.
Your Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group first identifies the causes of your pain through physical examination and X-rays. They resolve any subluxations with manual adjustments. Using holistic supportive therapies, they not only resolve your current pain but help your body achieve a homeostatic state so that it can heal itself.
