Latest Developments In Neck Pain From Your Wellness Chiropractors

Now you can live your life without neck pain Wellness Chiropractors. You can also live without the other major conditions associated with it, shoulder pain, upper back pain and headaches. You, like most people, may enjoy complete relief from all these conditions with this incredible treatment. You can even get the problem fixed that causes the pain and these associated conditions in the first place. When you go to see a doctor – of any kind – for neck pain what happens? They examine your neck.

Why? Because they think that is where the problem is. Guess what. If your neck was where the problem was then when they fixed your neck the pain would go away permanently. You may have tried physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, or even surgery but the pain still persists. The reason is that they never fixed where the REAL problem really is. They only treated where it hurts. These are NOT the same things “Unless the area just received an impact, then where you hurt is NEVER where the problem is.”

This means that even though your neck hurts you can’t fix it by having treatment on your neck. (Sometimes a person does get their neck treated and feels better. This is because the compensation for the real problem — which made the neck hurt — was shifted to some other part of their body. This other part will eventually hurt too.)
Where is Your Neck Pain Coming From?

Here is what happens. when you get injured the bones can be moved out of their normal positions. Then there are two possible things that take place. First is that the injury is self-correcting. This happens when there is a muscle PULLING IN THE DIRECTION opposite of the injury. This muscle can pull the bones back into place.

As an example, let’s say that you slip on a puddle of water and land on your side. This causes an impact to your back from the side and moves some bones out of place. This is only temporary because the muscles to the side of the spine just pull the bones sideways to their correct positions. Marvelously, the body is MOSTLY self-correcting this way. Most falls and bumps that push bones out of place do not become injuries. They correct by the body itself just pulling the bones back to their normal position.

The second thing occurs… when there is NO MUSCLE that can pull the bones moved out of place back into their correct position. Because the body cannot self-correct THE POSITIONS OF THOSE BONES, they remain out of place. WORSE… When they remain out of place, other bones must be twisted or tilted to compensate. This keeps your body upright and working but it causes problems where it gets twisted or tilted, like your neck.

Another example here, Lets say that you slip on some water and this time you land on your back. This causes an impact to your back from behind and pushes bones forward IN YOUR SPINE.  There are no muscles behind your back to pull the bones back into place.

Unfortunately, the best your body can do then is to twist or tilt someplace else, like your neck, to shift the pressure off the thing you cannot correct. By doing this it prevents IMMEDIATE SEVERE DAMAGE.

EVENTUALLY, this twisted or tilted area in your neck is where you will feel the pain.
This causes…

  • Stress on the joints in your neck
  • Swelling in the muscles and other tissues of the neck
  • Pressure on the nerves in your neck

And what’s more… Each of these triggers pain… IN YOUR NECK!
How long do you think that twisted compensation in your neck has to stay there..?
Right! The body can’t self-correct it so it doesn’t go away on its own. EVER!
NOW… how many times have you had impacts from behind? Who knows for sure but usually a bunch. These can be minor things like…

  • Sliping on steps
  • Falling to the ground

Or more major injuries like…

  • Sports injuries
  • Falls off bikes
  • Auto accidents
  • And I think you get the point

What happens as you get more and more of these impacts from behind is that your body slumps more and more forward. Have you ever seen anyone that is slumping forward? This is the reason why they do.

  • Burning pain
