The size of the vertebrae of the neck is understandably small but it allows for a lot of mobility. It has that important job of holding up and providing mobility to your head. Because the bones are so small however, they are more susceptible to injury. Some causes of neck pain include, but are not limited to, :
As you can see above most of these issues are directly related to the alignment of the spine. Whenever you get muscle spasms, the alignment of your spine gets mis-aligned. When this happens the nerves become irritated. This irritation then causes further tension and progresses into further systemic problems. Remember, every single nerve in your body has its root in the spinal column. It therefore stands to reason that issues that have their source at the neck can have a major impact throughout every other system.
Many people try to ignore their spinal problems in Fort Lauderdale. In some cases the pain may fade over time, but the misalignment of the spine is usually still there. The pain can therefore return. If the problem is not addressed, it can become progressively more serious. Unfortunately, some patients wait until surgery may be the only option.
Prescriptions or over-the-counter medications may help to relieve the symptoms but that is only a short-term fix. Massage therapy can help to relieve some muscle tightness but if the issue is in the bones or joints, the problem will persist.
