Neck pain is very common among people.
Some people only experience it once in a while, others have a more chronic

it is easily susceptible to different injuries or stress,
particularly with all the weight it is
carrying with your head. “
Your Neck Has a Big Job
Your neck actually consists of seven vertebrae that have a very big job—
supporting your head!
It’s amazing that these seven small vertebrae can fully support your head,
which can weigh up to twelve pounds in an adult.
Your neck also has the amazing ability to be flexible and turn nearly any way
you want (except 360 degrees—if your neck does that, you need more than
However, the neck pays a price for this flexibility: it is easily susceptible to

Your neck has a really important job, which is probably why your neck pain
can range from mild to severe.
Your neck pain could be caused by several things, including:
• Poor posture
Every inch you hold your head forward means an extra ten pounds on your
neck and spine.
Poor posture from leaning over looking at a computer or just walking without
holding your head up properly can really put some strain on the neck over time.
As you age, especially if you’re not in good health or have poor nutrition (I’m talking
to you, cheeseburger and beer people!), your body may need more
nutrients such as calcium or vitamin D.
You can easily get osteoporosis or arthritis which could be causing or contributing

Get Your Neck Back with Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractors deal with necks all the time, and many of their patients come in to see
them because they’re experiencing neck pain that didn’t go away with medication or
other attempted remedies despite having been seen by several doctors.
The fact is, if you’re not treating the root cause of your neck pain, then the pain
willalways come back.
Dr. Jakob Taylor of True Wellness Chiropractic in Chattanooga Tennessee shares how
successful chiropractic care has proven to be in patients who suffer from neck pain.
“Study after study published in every leading journal
has proven that seeking chiropractic care for your neck pain
results in faster healing times and significant cost savings
as compared to over the counter medications or
more invasive therapies.”
Chiropractors can address any subluxations (small dislocations) in your neck and work
with you on your posture.
Getting you to hold your head up, especially if you have a desk job or work at a computer
frequently (who doesn’t?) is important to getting that stress off your neck and putting it
where your body is able to better accommodate it.
Your neck already has a big job supporting your head and turning it whatever way you want.
Get rid of your neck pain by visiting a chiropractor, who can adjust your neck safely to get
it working properly again and relieve some of that stress that your neck has been carrying
due to poor posture or injury or age.
Chiropractic adjustments to the neck can help improve your range of motion and get your
flexibility back if you have a stiff neck.
This should also help take some of the soreness away and get the joints moving properly
again and free them from their stress.
