Neck Pain & Whiplash

The neck is vital to your body because it protects and supports your head and spinal cord. Imagine balancing a 10 pound object on the end of a small bar. The neck is so delicate that even the little pains can turn into something chronic and severe. Your neck should be strong, flexible, and pain free. Injury, poor posture, aging, and repeated stress on your neck can damage the neck. Chiropractic can treat these issues through manipulation and therapy. These techniques will not only decrease pain but will increase joint flexibility and spinal alignment. 

The neck refers pain to shoulders, arms, hands, and especially the back of the head. Headaches are one of the most common symptoms of chronic neck pain and discussed in further detail in another section of the website. Whiplash will often throw your neck out of balance. Whiplash can occur in any forceful jerking of the neck including during sports. It is important to see a chiropractor to ensure that a minor issue does not become something major. An exam will be performed in office to determine the best treatment option for each patient. It takes time to heal any type of injury but with early treatment you can speed your healing process, relieve pain, decrease tightness, and correct misalignment. Pammer chiropractic is a great treatment option for most injuries including neck pain and whiplash.
