More Than a Pain in the Neck

When the vertebral misalignment known as a "subluxation" occurs among any of the seven cervical vertebrae that define the neck, pain can be expected. Moreover, subluxation in this topmost region of the spine may give rise to organic disorders that the average person might not expect. For instance, misalignment of cervical vertebrae may cause headache, dizziness, deafness, sinus trouble, and other maladies of the head, neck, shoulders, and the tissues and organs that are closely aligned with them. These problems may occur as a result of irritation or impingement of the nerve roots that emerge through spaces in the cervical spine. By treating cervical subluxations, the chiropractor helps restore proper function to the tissues served by these nerves.
