Thayer Chiropractic Method for Neck Pain Treatment in Costa Mesa
As more people spend their time sitting behind computers, incidents of neck pain have skyrocketed around the world.
Studies estimate nearly 80% of people will suffer from neck pain at least once this year. Stress, poor posture, and environmental conditions all take their toll.
Tension or injury in your neck can throw off the balance of your entire spine. After all, your central nervous system begins in your head and stretches down through your back.
The Thayer Chiropractic Method restores balance to the rest of your body through comprehensive neck pain treatment in Costa Mesa. Here’s how it works.
How Does the Thayer Chiropractic Method Work for Treating Neck Pain?
Your head is heavy: Most skulls weigh about 12 pounds. If your posture is bad or you spend your day looking down at a desk, this adds an incredible amount of weight to your spine. Depending on the angle, tilting your head can add up to 60 additional pounds to your delicate spine.
Over time, the added weight warps the vertebrae in your cervical spine (neck) where the nerve to bone ratio is higher than the rest of your spine. That’s why neck pain is often so intense.
But neck pain doesn’t stay isolated to your neck. The imbalance in your neck throws off the weight distribution across your entire spine. You’ll also notice problems like:
- Upper back tension and muscle spasms
- Shoulder pain and tension
- Tingling or numbness in your hands or arms from pinched nerves
- Slipped or herniated discs in your lower back
- Sciatica (shooting pain that radiates down one buttock through your thigh)
The Thayer Chiropractic Method addresses problems across your entire body by restoring balance to your skull and neck.
