Neck Pain

Neck pain symptoms can vary. The pain can be a mild annoyance, or it could be excruciating causing an individual to avoid any movement. Neck pain is usually located in one spot. It then goes away on its own within a few days or weeks. But some cases the pain becomes constant or begins to radiate into other body parts like the shoulder and arms. Dr. Alex Jimenez’s collection of neck pain articles cover an assortment of medical conditions and/or injuries pertaining to pain and other symptoms surrounding the cervical spine. The neck consists of various complex structures; bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and other tissues. When these structures are damaged or injured as a result of improper posture, osteoarthritis, or even whiplash, among other complications, the pain and discomfort an individual experiences can be debilitating. Through chiropractic care, Dr. Jimenez explains how the use of manual adjustments to the cervical spine can greatly help relieve the painful symptoms associated with neck issues.
