Neck pain is one of the most common reasons people seek Chiropractic Care. While the neck itself can be very painful, structures in the neck can also cause pain up into the head or down into the upper back, shoulders, and arms if there is injury or dysfunction present. Whiplash injuries are especially likely to negatively affect the neck. Many times people assume that the soreness, pain, and tightness of a slower speed fender bender will go away soon. However, the collision can alter the function of the neck and lead to worse problems over time as the body tries to stabilize the injured areas.
A thorough examination enables Dr. Underwood to determine the exact problem areas and form a plan of care to restore normal motion and function to the neck. Active Release and Soft Tissue Therapy in conjunction with spinal adjustments and functional rehabilitation will restore function and long term stability to the neck.
