Neck Pain Management
including Whiplash Pain Management
Most people do not realize
how much they move their neck during the day until they are unable to do
so. The degree of flexibility of the neck, coupled with the fact that it
has the least amount of muscular stabilization and it has to support and
move your 14 - 16 pound head, means that the neck is very susceptible to
You can picture your neck and head much like a bowling ball being
held on top of a stick by small, thin, elastic bands. It doesn’t take much
force to disrupt that delicate balance; therefore, many people have been
afflicted with neck pain.
Most neck and upper back pain is caused by a combination
of factors, including injury (such as whiplash), poor posture, chiropractic subluxations, stress,
and in some instances, disc problems. These will affect the nerves, ligaments
and blood supply to the head and shoulder region.
At Hands for Health, our focus is on treating the underlying source of neck pain by restoring
proper functioning of the vertebrae and muscles, removing muscle spasm and teaching
rehabilitation exercises help prevent re-occurrence of the problem. Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) using Rocktape can be very useful in this process!
