Causes and cures for neck pain

Your neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and every day wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.

Here are some of the most typical causes of neck pain:


About chiropractor

Welcome! My name is Dr. David Pearson. Please let me take a moment to share some of my background with you. I have been practicing chiropractic for over 25 years, and I am committed to providing better health and a better way of life to my patients by teaching and practicing the principles of chiropractic wellness. After completing the same undergraduate study that other types of doctors do, for me to become a Chiropractic Physician required another four years of postgraduate college education. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic graduating summa cum laude in 1985. I have taken advanced courses in quite a few different techniques, such as Gonstead, Thompson, Logan Basic and extremity adjusting. Before going into practice I had to pass a rigorous National Board Examination and stringent licensing requirements. I currently hold licenses to practice in Florida, New York and Colorado. I am a member of the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA). I also attend post graduate seminars each year and read professional healthcare journals to keep up with the latest research and techniques in chiropractic. I am originally from Western New York, a small town south of the Buffalo -Niagra Falls region, called Jamestown. Lucille Ball was also from Jamestown. My wife, children, and I moved to Palm Coast, Florida a year and a half ago.
