Your neck is the most vulnerable part of your spine. Not only does it support your 10-12 pound head and allow you to look around freely, but it must also allow for nerve impulses to travel without restraint to your entire body.
Many everyday things can cause neck pain from watching TV or using a computer, to reading a book or falling asleep in a chair. When neck pain becomes frequent, or does not ease up, it may be time for chiropractic care.
Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective way to relieve neck pain, headaches and pain caused by whiplash or other injuries.
