Neck Pain

Neck pain can be caused by subluxations of the cervical spine or more commonly by intense muscle spasms of the neck caused by awkward positions, straining the neck, or stress. These two conditions are very related in that either one left untreated can result in the other occuring. Many times this condition will result in some degree of torticollis (when the neck locks in a position) before the patient will seek a chiropractor. However, our doctors and chiropractic have had great success with these conditions as the following studies show.


In a study led by Vernon, H. in 1990, Pressure Pain Threshold Evaluation of the effect of Spinal Manipulation in the Treatment of Chronic Neck Pain: A Pilot Study, published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (vol 13, no. 1:13-16) he showed pain was decreased and range of motion increased after limited care. Verhoef, M. did a follow up study in 1997, The Chiropractic Outcome Study: Pain, Functional Ability and Satisfaction with Care, published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (vol 20, no. 4:235-240) which showed "patients suffering from back and/or neck complaints experienced chiropractic care as an effective means of resolving or ameliorating pain and functional impairments".
