Cervical Spine, Neck Pain, and Disability: A Closer Look

By now, you know that neck pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Neck pain has a significant impact on:

  • Personal care (washing, dressing, etc.);

  • Lifting;

  • Reading;

  • Headaches;

  • Concentration;

  • Work and employment activities;

  • Traveling;

  • Sleeping;

  • Recreational activities;

  • And more.

Healthy Cervical spine alignment and posture is essential for preventing, reducing, or eliminating disability due to neck pain. Your Cervical spine should have a curvature that curves towards your front for the purposes of shock absorption. Too much or too little cuve does not allow the cervical spine to absorb shock. Instead, weight and stress push down into the spine causing instability, compression, and degeneration. This has a harmful effect on the muscles, ligaments, bones, tendons, discs, nerves, and spinal cord of your neck. And you can be left with pain that alters your movements, mobility, function, and quality of life.

High quality research shows that improvement of the Cervical spine curvature and forward head posture posture using Chiropractic BioPhysics® corrective spinal rehab gives rise to significant improvement in neck pain and, as a result, improvements in neck movement, mobility, and functional ability. What’s more is that these studies include long-term follow-ups that show continued significant neck movement, mobility, and functional ability improvements for years after Cervical spine alignment and posture are improved. In other words, Chiropractic BioPhysics® can be a long-term solution for your potential long-term neck pain and disability.
