Neck Pain

NECK PAIN

Imagine, if you can, balancing a bowling ball on your hand for 12-14 hours a day. An exaggeration to think about, but when you consider the muscles and bones in the neck, that is similar to their task at hand.  Within our society, so many of our work environments are making us look down at a desk or lean over a computer to get our work done. This puts a tremendous load on our bodies to respond to theses physical demands. There are 7 bones in the cervical spine surrounded by 4-6 layers of muscle, depending on location, and these components are responsible for the position and movement of a 10-12 pound structure containing all of the controls and instructions for our body. The importance of maintaining this collection of tissues in good and secure order cannot be overstated. With every movement of our body, the neck has to compensate to protect and maintain the integrity of our most important faculty. Every added stress, physical or emotional, can tax our resources to maintain the proper positions and movements. With stresses and strains, weakness can produce imbalance which leads to dysfunction which results in neck pain.
