Your neck is a very complex structure and a marvel of engineering. Your neck has the duty of supporting your head. Your head is heavy and typically weighs 8-12 pounds. This is as heavy as a bowling ball. Not only is your neck strong, it must also be flexible. Neck flexibility will allow you to do important movements, like looking over our shoulders when changing lanes on the freeway.
Your neck is remarkably designed….
unfortunately, the physical and daily demands you place on your neck may exceed its capabilities. The result is neck pain, headaches, shoulder and upper back pain. Just look at your posture. Please view the above video for posture tips!
Is your head on straight?
One way to look at your posture is how your head lines up with gravity when viewed from the back. Remember your head weighs as much as a bowling ball, so if your bowling ball…er, I mean your head that is, moved offline left or right even just a degree or two, your neck muscles have to kick in to hold your head up. This is because the weight of your head has shifted from your bones to your muscles. Now your muscles have to work extra hard. The result is…. a pain in the neck!

Read what one patient had to say about our care:
“I had a severe car accident about three months ago. I felt terrible, tired and had headaches, low back pain and neck pain. I lost my appetite and had a hard time sleeping at night. … I went to a different chiropractor and it did not help. A friend told me to come here and give it a try…. The doctor here was so nice and cared a lot about my health. In less than one month I started to feel better! My headaches are all gone and I can take care of my family again. I am so thankful to this office. The staff here is friendly and always greets me with a big SMILE!

I use to suffer from neck pain during college. It came from too much studying and reading. Yes I was and still am a nerd :-). Neck pain made focusing, studying and sports difficult to do for me. Once I started my adjustments and proper lifestyle modifications…NO more neck pain! Please come by and see if we can help you.
