Chronic Pain and Neck Pain
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system that sends signals to and from the brain to and from all parts of the body. An overload on the system will be felt as pain. Pain is a signal that says something is wrong that needs to be corrected. To release the free flow of signals you must re-establish a free flow in the body. Finding and releasing key points that trigger pain, free flow is re-established. This is done by very simple methods that relieve this tension and replace oxygen in the blood, thus eliminating chronic pain.
When it comes to cervical vertebrae, we are talking about C1 through C7. These vertebrae, along with the muscles that support them, make up the neck. C7 at the base is larger. With each vertebra going up: C6, C5, C4, C3, C2, and C1, they become smaller. The musculature on either side of these vertebrae control the position and movement of your head. Your head is like the size of a bowling ball balanced on a stack of coins, the smallest coin being at the very top. It’s no wonder that there’s so much chronic neck pain in our population! Re-balancing the tone of the musculature that supports the vertebrae will best alleviate pain and discomfort while increasing your range of movement.
