Quad Pain

Neck pain is a common problem, especially with the advent of the computer and cell phones. Pain can range from mild discomfort to severe, all of which negatively impact daily life.  

Understanding the cause of neck pain is the first step to finding lasting pain relief. Most traditional treatments fail to address the root cause, and acute or mild neck pain can quickly become severe and chronic.

And The Most Effective Way To Treat It

Contributing Factors And Symptoms

One of the most common causes of neck pain is repetitive stress of the neck muscles, tendons, and ligaments within these structures. Individuals who spend most of their day sitting at work, or doing sedentary activities, have a high-risk factor for developing this condition. The risk for developing neck pain is highest for those who sit in poor posture, with the head in a flexed forward position.

Several other causes of neck pain are also posture related, such as herniated discs, whiplash injuries, and Osteoarthritis (developing from the wear and tear of cartilage and bones). Poor posture puts your cervical spine, disks, and muscles in the neck at risk of injury and damage.

Common Symptoms of Neck Pain:

  • Muscle soreness, tightness, or spasms
  • Headaches, often at the base of the skull
  • Radiating pain that extends to the shoulders, arms, or fingers
  • Pain that’s often worse when holding your head in one place for long period 

Traditional Treatments Often Fall Short

Remedies for neck pain are often limited and provide only short-term relief.  Fortunately, there is another proven method that focuses on the root cause, resulting in lasting relief for both acute and chronic neck pain.

Ice, heat, and pain relief creams are topical remedies that might feel good when applied but usually wear off in a very short amount of time. 

Steroid shots and surgeries are isolated to the location of the pain are unsuccessful when the root cause is elsewhere in the body.

General stretching and massage only provide short-term relief since their focus is on the site of the pain and not the root cause.

Over-the-counter and prescription meds only mask the pain temporarily, which often results in symptoms getting worse over time.

Treat The Root Cause

Neck Pain is usually caused by a posture imbalance
somewhere else in the body

Treatments that are limited to the neck alone often fail because the pain area is not usually the problem area. Remedies applied to the neck are ineffective when neck pain blamed on nerve impingement, disk compression, or muscle spasm has an even deeper root cause. 

If the mid back, shoulders, hips, and lower part of the spine are out of a level, balanced, and stacked position, then the neck will also be out of position as your body attempts to keep your head upright and level. Upper cross syndrome and hunched shoulders put the neck in a compromised position. Rotation in the shoulders or hips can create a counter-rotation in the neck. As soon as the neck is tilted, twisted, or tipped out of its stacked, neutral position, the nerves and disks get pinched and muscles ligaments and joints get stressed. The alarm bells go off and neck pain is what you start to feel.
