Chiropractic Approach to Neck Pain Relief
Your neck is jam-packed with nerves, glands, tubes, blood, and lymph vessels, and 48 different joints, plus your brain stem, spinal cord, spinal column, muscles, ligaments, tendons, fluids, meninges, and more! It also balances your heavy head!!
Dr. Bushee has been practicing chiropractic health since 1998. He has an extensive education and experience helping people achieve relief from back and neck pain.
Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or "snapped" back and forth very quickly. In addition to the disc and other soft tissue damage, whiplash causes spinal column misalignment and irritation, stretching, or impingement to the nerves and spinal cord.
Other neck problems can be caused by poor posture, work habits, and even birth trauma.
Neck problems and whiplash can cause headaches, numbness, coldness, or "pins-and-needles" in the face, chest, arms, wrists, or hands. They can also result in anxiety, insomnia, low back and neck pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss, eye pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and other symptoms.

Muscle Strain or Injury
A muscle strain or injury is the most common cause of neck pain or discomfort. Repetitive motions or poor posture can lead to this type of strain.
When afflicted with arthritis, your body’s joints become stiff and inflamed, which then leads to reduced mobility and increased pain.
Trauma or injury to the neck – like whiplash caused by a rear-end collision or a slip-and-fall, may result in neck discomfort and related symptoms.
The spinal discs between the vertebrae in the neck can become herniated or bulge out of place, pressing on nerves and causing pain.
Poor posture, which includes slouching while standing, poor work habits, or maintaining an awkward neck position, can develop into a neck muscle strain that is painful and makes it difficult to move with ease.
When neck nerves become compressed (a.k.a. pinched), the result can be quite painful but also cause tingling or numbness that radiates from the neck down one or both arms.
Osteoporosis refers to a medical condition in which one’s bones become brittle and weak. This, in turn, increases your chances of fracturing a bone in the neck or any other part of your body.
