Natural Neck Pain Treatment in Calgary, Alberta

neck pain, neck ache, neck pain treatment, neck pain reliefNeck pain will affect 2 out of every 3 persons making it nearly as common a complaint as back pain. About 1 in 10 people are currently experiencing mild neck pain, and about 1 in 20 is dealing with severe neck pain. It can be tough to diagnose the cause of this pain due to the fact that the neck is home to many nerves, blood vessels, and muscles.

Often, the problem is a matter of weight displacement. The average weight of the human head is 10 to 12 pounds. The neck stabilizes the head, literally keeping it on straight. However, this requires proper bones position and muscle structure. Even a slight misalignment of the topmost vertebrae of the neck can through off how the weight of the head is balanced. In particular, the C1 vertebra, or atlas, plays a vital role. When out of position, the head is off-balance, and this affects the neck adversely, as it compensates to correct balance and posture.

Atlas Alignment and Neck Pain Relief

At Natural Way Chiropractic, we focus on treating neck pain at its source. This often means correcting a misalignment of the atlas. We use the Blair technique, a specific form of upper cervical care, to detect and resolve such misalignments. As the result of a customized adjustment, a patient may receive immediate relief.

Neck pain isn’t something that you should feel you just have to live with, and it is not a symptom that should just be ignored. An upper cervical misalignment can lead to many other chronic health problems if left unchecked. If chronic neck pain is affecting your quality of life, we invite you to come in for a consultation and examination. You may find that upper cervical chiropractic is the natural and drug-free treatment option that you have been searching for.
