Neck Pain Treatment and Relief at Apex Chiropractic in Santa Monica
Neck misalignments and subluxations are very common. The cervical spine has seven vertebrae surrounding its delicate nerve roots which are very susceptible to misalignment. When these vertebrae are misaligned a wide variety of symptoms may occur. Neck pain, muscle tension, shoulder pain, radiating pain to hands, headaches, dizziness and nausea to name a few.
The cervical spine is a very delicate structure that we traumatize and misalign every day regardless of lifestyle. Subluxations are caused by everything from poor posture, small physical traumas and repetitive work to new or past auto accidents. These misalignments irritate sensitive nerve roots, cause mechanical imbalance and eventually even arthritis. The cervical spine is arguably the most important segment of the spine. These vertebrae correspond to some of the most important functions of the nervous system.
Dr. Arndt has developed an extremely effective cervical technique. Highly specific adjustments are made to the cervical spine to restore mechanical function and remove the nerve irritations that cause pain, tension and poor health.
