Your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of the body. The skull protects your brain while the spinal cord is protected by 24 moveable bones of the spine. As a result of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of these spinal bones can irritate or choke delicate nerves thus decreasing the function of the body causing pain and discomfort.
At Bradley Chiropractic Center, Inc. we are trained in the detection, reduction, correction, and prevention of spinal related problems, thus decreasing and eventually eliminating aches and pains.
Neck and back problems strike people of all walks of life. They're not just a problem for heavy laborers. Desk workers have a higher incidence of pain over blue collar workers. Being strong doesn't protect you if you abuse your spine. Having a light job doesn't necessarily protect you either.
Stiffness may arise from something as simple as falling asleep in a wrong posture. As the joints lock into this position, the muscles can painfully guard, spasm, and fatigue. Neck problems may also arise from arthritis and injury (i.e. whiplash).
We brush our teeth to avoid decay; we wash to avoid infection; we follow traffic laws to avoid accidents. While a back injury may not kill you, it can cripple you, physically, emotionally and financially. An expert must determine the underlying causes of such neck pain. Examination, diagnosis and treatment by a trained doctor at Bradley Chiropractic Center, Inc. can relieve your mind and may quickly relieve your pain.
Certainly neck pain that keeps coming back or lasts for many days is a signal that something isn't right. These spinal problems are extremely difficult to get rid of. They are however easy to avoid. The key is YOU! You must take responsibility to do what is right for your spine.
