Symptoms of Upper Cervical Pain

When someone suffers from upper cervical pain, this is pain that is coming from the top of the neck. Some of the most common symptoms of upper cervical pain include neck pain, headaches, trouble with hearing and vision, pain that runs down the shoulders and more. When someone is having trouble with upper cervical pain, they might also have trouble moving their neck up and down. This pain can be incredibly debilitating and it is important for everyone to trust a trained chiropractor for help.

The Treatment of Upper Cervical Pain

When someone comes to Family Life Chiropractic for help with upper cervical pain, we have a number of treatment options at our disposal. First, we are going to start by taking a look at someone's neck, back, and spine. We want to make sure that the vertebrae are lined up in an appropriate manner. After this, we will perform a series of adjustments that will ensure the vertebrae are lined up appropriately. Adjustments of the cervical vertebrae can give the ligaments and muscles more room to work, helping someone alleviate their pain.

In addition, we can also use decompression to help give the vertebrae of the neck more room to operate. Using gentle traction, we can stretch the vertebrae ever so slightly. This gives the nerves more room as they exit the spine and can help people who suffer from pains that feel like electric shocks in addition to numbness and tingling.
