Neck Pain Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Team. Dr. Alex Jimenez’s collection of neck pain articles cover an assortment of medical conditions and/or injuries on pain and other symptoms surrounding the cervical spine. The neck consists of various complex structures; bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and other tissues. When these structures are damaged or injured as a result of improper posture, osteoarthritis, or even whiplash, among other complications, the pain and discomfort individual experiences can be debilitating.
Depending on the underlying cause, neck pain symptoms can take on many different forms. They include:
Pain when holding your head in one place for long periods of time
Inability to move your head freely
Frequent cracking and crunching
Numbness and nerve pain radiating from the neck down to the upper arm and hand.
Through chiropractic care, Dr. Jimenez explains how manual adjustments to the cervical spine can greatly help relieve the painful symptoms associated with neck issues.
