Our neck is also known as the cervical spine. The cervical spine begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. These vertebrae are responsible for supporting the weight of your skull (10-12 pounds) and guiding all of the different ranges of motions our head is able to do. It’s a big responsibility, and if something gets out of place, we tend to notice it quickly. A misalignment of the neck can show up as soreness in the neck or shoulders, numbness or tingling into the face or arms, stiffness and decreased range of motion, or even multiple headaches and migraines.
Dr. Sam has been extensively trained to analyze what is wrong with the structure of the neck and, using precise techniques, she is able to correct the vertebra that is out of place. She is able to use both the normal adjustment most people think of, as well as a more gentle adjustment for people that don’t respond well to quick motions of the neck. If you are suffering from any of the above conditions, it is important to be checked out by a chiropractor so that you can begin reversing any problems that may have started!
