Greetings all from your friends here at ProHealth Chiropractic & Injury Center here in Pembroke Pines. We feel strongly that to rid oneself of pain, they must first understand the nature of the pain. That’s why we invest so much time and energy educating both our patients and the general public via our website and blog. Today let’s learn things about the cervical spine and how issues there causes neck pain.
The part of the neck which begins at the base of the skull and contains the smallest vertebrae is also called the “cervical spine”. The benefits of chiropractic include solutions that end neck disc pain.
First, we look to give you a basic understanding of the cervical spine. The cervical column is composed of seven bones (C1 to C7) uniquely shaped to protect the spinal cord that descends from the base of your skull and the spinal nerves or roots that exit the spine between each set of bones. The cervical spine is the part of the neck that holds the entire weight of the human head and provides all of the structure and stability of the neck. Given the fact that a human head weighs (on average) 12 pounds, you must imagine the negative impact of this weight on your neck when your neck’s cervical spine deviates from perfect alignment. Our chiropractic care clinic in Pembroke Pines, FL offers treatment for those who experience problems in their cervical spine such as neck disc pain or related pain in the upper back or arms.
Neck disc pain can be very bothersome. Chiropractic spinal adjustments of the neck is a proven safe and effective procedure to bring your cervical spine back into proper alignment. While every case is unique, we often see our patients get immediate relief from severe neck pain in as little as their very first treatment!
